Rex Ryan rips DeAngelo Hall in latest 'Hard Knocks'

Updated at 10:43 a.m.

HBO's "Hard Knocks" is losing a bit of steam, what with the Jets struggling and the real season approaching and all, but there were a few highlights related to the local Burgundy and Gold.

For instance, Rex Ryan explains to the world (in terms that are graphic, but less graphic than Rex usually is -- it's not TV, it's HBO) why his brother, Rob, got rid of DeAngelo Hall's "posterior":

Jerry McDonald, who covers the Raiders for the Bay Area News Group, thinks Rex may be full of it.

If Rex Ryan thinks brother Rob had the juice to get rid of DeAngelo Hall, then he's sorely mistaken . . .less than a minute ago via web

Michael Lombardi of the NFL Network tweeted: I agree Jerry.....dead on...

And special teams coach Mike Westoff is fairly succinct in his feelings about the Redskins. "Redskins. [Bleep] them."

Vernon Davis, fight in a headline again

When Vernon Davis mixed it up with Michael Crabtree during a San Francisco 49ers practice Wednesday, Coach Mike Singletary, pioneer of the pantsless pep talk, stepped in. (He's been rather critical of Davis in the past, sending him to the locker room during a game last year, so that must have been interesting.)

have_another_donut.png"There is no more elephants in the room," Singletary said. "The elephant was exposed."

Neither Davis nor Crabtree would comment on the dustup. "They were both wrong," Singletary said. "And we will not have distractions on this team. Vernon forgot temporarily that that is not allowed. We don't do that. We don't treat family like that. We don't disrespect each other. I just needed to remind him that's not who we are. He's fine. He did a great job. He's one of the captains. He did the right thing, but he did it the wrong way."

Perhaps Davis, a noted curling enthusiast, was fighting with Crabtree over the shot rock. This wouldn't be the first curling altercation to spill over into an NFL locker room. (via Matt Rennie)

More Tar Heels suspensions?

The indefinite suspension of Marvin Austin by North Carolina Coach Butch Davis may be only the beginning, ESPN reports.

The suspension marks the latest twist during a turbulent summer for North Carolina, which is preparing to play against LSU on Saturday without up to 16 players, sources said Wednesday night.
The school is exploring the possibility of "rolling suspensions" with the NCAA, which would allow them to spread losses over multiple games.

Rex Ryan, wow. The entire Jets organization, wow. So full of themselves. They committed and inexcusable amount of penalties in that game. My take on that is they're all high and mighty from hard knocks so they think they can get away with dumb penalties. I'm glad Hard Knocks came to the Jets this offseason, they're gonna fill themselves so full of hot air and finish an absolute dismal 8-8. Hail.

8-8 isn't dismal but it's going to look that way b/c their prediction is SB win.

If Rex Ryan, in real life, is not really a complete fool, then he should sue "Hard Knocks" for defamation. But I think the editing of the show makes a sadly accurate portrayal. The whole Jets staff comes across as a bunch of yahoos who don't belong in their position. As soon as a couple things go wrong in real games, you've got to think his team will lose confidence in them.

Case in point - Ryan's ridiculous profanity filled "pep talk" that ended with the 300 lbs coach shouting "now let's go get a f***ing SNACK!" was one of the funniest things I've seen in a long time.

Maybe it's just me, but I think Tittysaurus Rex should be more concerned about his lackluster offense than he should be about his brothers personnel decisions.

Rex Ryan is a blowhard. The Jets are completely overrated and one of the things I'm going to enjoy watching this season is how they struggle. They're the new Redskins of a few years ago, bringing in every name they can pay. The Patriots and Dolphins will both finish ahead of the Jets and Rex Ryan will wear out his welcome within two years. People get tired of blowhards.

i just like how they made it look as though the jets o did something when they scored a td failing to mention it in the 4th quarter against backups. i didn't really care either way about the jets but now i'm pulling for a losing season!

Well, I watched the show last night and I didn't see Ryan say anything wrong about D-Hall.

I mean, Hall can't even tackle Jake Delhomme.

I hope the Jets loose big this year. I have never cared about the Jets one way or the other in the past but after watching hard knocks and seeing how full of themselves they are it is going to be fun watching them go 8-8 or 7-9. Sanchez is not ready for prime time yet and running the ball and defense only gets you so far in the modern NFL.

THIS. That was just as awkward as it was funny.

I'm watching Hard Knocks, have always been somewhat warm & fuzzy about the Jets...

Two things strike me about the exchange.

1) Rex remembers so incisively something that happend to his twin brother, then with the Al Davis senile or not senile? Raiduhs.

2) He turns his back and walks away.

His daddy Buddy Ryan I always thought of something of a moron, unable to keep up with the likes of Joe Gibbs or Bill Walsh.

His brother Rob I didn't know existed until this exchange, and the tweeter above was correct: this was Raiders head coach & Al Davis territory.

Then we get to Rex himself last year thinking that the Jets had been eliminated from the playoffs.

Yup, I think the Jets are going to crater, too.

Any other Hard Knocks watchers out there wondering why the Jets had to bring in Joe Namath to tell Sanchez on the proper way to receive a ball from the center?
