08:05 AM ET 05.15 | There's less of him to love, but, according to his defensive players, more of Rex Ryan to go around for Gang Green. Cornerback Darrelle Revis and inside linebacker David Harris, appearing at Harris' charity golf tournament [Monday], both said Ryan has been more actively involved in defensive meetings during the team's offseason program. Ryan has acknowledged he wants to be more hands-on this year with the defense. Revis said Ryan was not as involved in 2011 as he had been his first two years as coach. "He did fade off a little bit," Revis said. "I don't know the reason for it. He's a head coach. He has a lot on his plate. It's a lot of pressure. It's just something that maybe he thought he put more trust in the coaching staff."

A day without Rex is like, uh hmmm. Difficult to remember a day without Rex, I guess it's like a day with Favre!

How come with 32 NFL teams, Jets always seem to have some non-story posted.

Uh oh. Rex better put an end to this. A place speaking out of place? "Revis, you're suspended 4 games for being an idiot"Bur he won't. Ryan has no balls.

Don't go getting Ryan mixed up with Belechik.

More of Rex is a bad thing for the Defense. Probly a good thing for Sanchez though.

The only way the Jets will stay relevant is with their mouths because the fact that they SUCK! on the field speaks for itself.

I remember a game in Denver last year where Revis was the one who "faded off."

Yeah Timmy has got his back now! Timmy be telling about jebus.

But I'm not endorsing what Revis said. If Rex messed up by trusting anybody, he messed up by trusting that Revis and others would be the players that they were two years ago.

Favre texting junk = Revis story
Favre undecided = Tebow story
Favre addicted to drugs = Ryan story.

We get it Darrelle. Starting with the head coach, your entire team was too busy doing other things to be bothered about doing your jobs last season. Not exactly a mystery and not really worth rehashing.
