08:04 AM ET 05.27 | In a small meeting with prospective business partners in New York City, Rex Ryan said he has reached out to Joe Gibbs. Ryan told the crowd that he plans to visit personally with Gibbs in a few days and he's already soaked in some of his advice. "He said take this time to get better," Ryan said of the coaching legend. "Take time to gain an advantage on your opponents and whatever you think that is. He gave me some ideas and I followed them to a tee." While possessing a healthy confidence in his staff and himself, Ryan takes input from the outside and has a hunger for more knowledge. "We're bringing in former coaches in this league, the top guys: Tom Moore, the former offensive coordinator with the Indianapolis Colts. We brought in Bobby Jackson. ... We have Dan Reeves coming in."

Gibbs would understand better than most how to take advantage of a work stoppage.

To a tee? I thought this would be a Rex-playing-golf thread.

Rex must love golf. What other sport can you play while staring at your feet?

Gibbs, Reeves, what are they advising him on? Maybe those fancy new leather helmets. As I recall neither one left the business of their own accord or on a winning record.

No, not Dan Reeves, KEANU Reeves. We need a quarterback in case there's a lockout.
