Saints DC Rob Ryan and Jets head coach Rex Ryan are two of the best defensive minds in the NFL, but both of their teams have gone a combined 2-6 to start the season.
On Sunday, the Saints defense led by coordinator Rob Ryan and the Jets defense led by head coach Rex Ryan gave up a total of 62 points and 805 yards while forcing zero turnovers in losses to the Cowboys and Lions.
“Right now, man, nobody’s doing worse than the Ryan brothers,” Rob Ryan said, via Katherine Terrell of NOLA.com. “We might say we are two of the best coaches, and I believe that, and I know that. We’re doing everything we can to do it, but we have to do more. There’s got to be something else out there. We keep emphasizing it and all of that, but that’s lip service. We need to start getting turnovers and it needs to start happening this week.”
Opposing quarterbacks have thrown 110 passes against the Saints and 96 passes against the Jets this season, and neither team has a single interception. The Saints have only recovered one fumble, and the Jets have only recovered two. When it comes to forcing turnovers, the Ryans’ defenses are at the bottom of the league.
