Rex Ryan famously gathered his players and buried the game ball from that night. He also skipped team film study of the loss, a move he's now repeated following Sunday's embarrassment.
"We handed out all the grade sheets to the players, and they're going to watch the tape on their own but for us to sit in there, go over and it again, when we know exactly what happened, I thought it would be more beneficial to move on to New Orleans," Ryan said Monday, via the New York Daily News. "Anybody that was on the sideline or played in that game knows what happened: We got our butts kicked."
"I never buried the football this time," Ryan went on. "What happened happened, but you're better off, we better move forward. That's why I did what I did."
That 2010 Jets team did right the ship, and even got revenge on the Patriots with an upset win in the playoffs. Of course, there's a substantial gulf in talent separating that Jets team and the overachieving group that's clawed to a 4-4 start in 2013.
