Rex Ryan: Twitter missed opportunity

By | September 28, 2009

After the Jets game, David Clowney, Wide Receiver NYJ, wrote a twitter message.

“1 play in the 1st Half, 4 plays in the 2nd half . . . A bit disappointed about my playing time but very happy and satisfied about the win.”

For this tweet, he was benched for next Sunday’s game by Coach Rex Ryan.

I think Rex Ryan missed an opportunity.  He shouldn’t have announced this message to the press.  He should have twittered his response.  Something like:

@DavidClowney: Maybe if you wouldve worked harder in practice you wouldve seen more action.  BTW, you are benched next Sunday.**

This would have been flat out awesome.  Fight fire with fire.  Believe me, if Rex Ryan tweeted, the players wouldn’t think it’s as cool anymore.  It’s like your dad writing he loves you on your Facebook wall.
