Following the Chargers’ loss to the Raiders, former Jets head coach and current Get Up host on ESPN Rex Ryan had a lot to say about Brandon Staley and his decision-making on Sunday night.

In a heated rant, Ryan said that Staley “robbed” NFL fans of seeing Justin Herbert in the playoffs, stating that it’s “hard not to make the playoffs” when you have a franchise quarterback.

Oddly, the whole rant seems somewhat personal. It’s an emotionally-charged statement that seems fueled by a little more than a coach simply NOT doing what he would have done in the same situation.

Staley’s aggressive, yet calculated, decision-making made waves all season and a lot of these old heads are feeling pretty good about of themselves because the black sheep of the NFL didn’t make the playoffs which makes them feel vindicated in all of their opposing viewpoints.

Well, no one cares, Rex.
