Rex: "My sources inside the Patriots building said Jacoby Brissett would be their quarterback."— Ryan Hannable (@RyanHannable) October 2, 2016
Rex insisted his sources knew who was playing QB for the Pats. Also said they knew Edelman would get snaps— Michael Giardi (@MikeGiardi) October 2, 2016
And so, cue the angry Patriots fans asking the NFL to investigate Ryan's claim:
@RyanHannable So he cheats?— InsufferablePatsFan (@PatsVigilante) October 2, 2016
@RyanHannable So....wait. Is the league going to investigate?— PatsFanCam (@PatsFanCam) October 2, 2016
@RyanHannable so he's spying on the patriots? If I recall the last person accused of spying got a hefty fine and lost draft picks— 4Rings (@MVPTB12) October 2, 2016
Anyway, Ryan trolled the Patriots in more than just one way. He also stole Belichick's line in his postgame press conference.
First words out of Rex Ryan's mouth after finally beating the Patriots in Foxboro: "Onto LA, I guess." Hilarious.— Bob Glauber (@BobGlauber) October 2, 2016
Ryan deserves to have his fun. After a disastrous 0-2 start, his team knocked off the Cardinals and Patriots in consecutive weeks. His defense just pitched the first shutout at New England since 1993. His job used to be on life support, now he's just a game behind the Patriots in the AFC East.
