I just heard on SNY that Rex Ryan benched Clowney for complaining on Twitter about his lack of playing time.

About an hour after the win over New England he twittered the amount of catches and yarsd he had in the the 1st half then 2nd half (something like that) then wrote he hoped for more chances but was happy aboout the W..

This was passed along to Rex who is a team first advocator and decided to bench him. Hopefully no harm (as they won w/o him), a lesson learned for Clowney and a trend setter for the entire team to play as one.

Yeah, and if you're using the "He's 19" logic, then I guess the best report a scout could give us is:


"I have no idea. He's a teenager. He may go through 5 arm surgeries between now and his 30th birthday. He may add a pitch. He may lose a pitch. He may put on 30 lbs and add velocity. He may put on 50 lbs and eat his way out of the league. I literally have no idea what he is going to be."

But thats not what these guys are paid to do, nor what we are looking for them to do, right?

Jerricho Cotchery was asked about it in his regular WFAN spot this morning and he was diplomatic, but said (paraphrasing): "Rex is a cool guy, but he doesn't take any stuff from anybody and he believes in team first."

Also, I saw a replay of Rex's weekly media briefing and he was firm but conciliatory. He said it was a team-first issue and that the decision was solely his. He said he went to Schottenheimer and the receivers coach and said,"You don't have him this week."

He also said he had met with Clowney and told him what was happening and that he had a chance to prove himself that week in practice. And that Clowney had risen to the challenge and had a great week of practice and that he would probably be the scout team player of the week.
