Rex Ryan Blasts Brandon Staley, Calls for His Return to Division III Football Amid Chargers Struggles

Rex Ryan rips Chargers head coach Brandon Staley, questioning his coaching abilities and suggesting that he belongs back in Division III college football.

Former NFL head coach Rex Ryan didn't hold back in his criticism of Los Angeles Chargers head coach Brandon Staley following the team's disappointing loss to the Green Bay Packers on Sunday. With the Chargers now sitting at a dismal 4-6 record and their playoff hopes fading fast, Ryan took aim at Staley's coaching acumen, questioning his ability to lead an NFL team.

"I think he should back in Division III football where he belongs," Ryan declared during his appearance on ESPN's 'Get Up!' on Monday morning. "Look at his résumé, man. I mean, I'm sorry, dude comes in there one year coordinating a team that my wife could coach, alright, with Aaron Donald, all those guys. Stop it."

Ryan's harsh words stemmed from Staley's defensive unit's dismal performance against the Packers, a game in which they allowed Jordan Love to look like a Pro Bowl quarterback. Ryan couldn't fathom how a defense with the second-highest payroll in the NFL could be performing so poorly.

"They made quarterback Jordan Love look like Aaron Rodgers, Brett Favre and Bart Starr," Ryan exclaimed. "And then he criticized Staley's passionate response when he told a reporter who asked about the defense to stop asking the question."

Ryan's criticism extended beyond Staley's coaching decisions to his demeanor and handling of the press. He emphasized that Staley's job is to answer questions from the media, not to shut them down.

"You know, I'm sorry, your job's to sit up there and answer questions. That man has a right, or woman, has a right to ask you any question she wants. You get paid to answer those things, alright? Handle it," Ryan retorted.

"The reason they're questioning you is because you're atrocious on defense. Give it to anybody else. Let somebody else coach because it ain't getting done."

Staley's hot seat has reached scorching levels following the Chargers' latest loss, and Ryan's scathing remarks have only turned up the heat. With the team's playoff hopes fading and fan discontent growing, Staley may find himself on the coaching carousel sooner rather than later.
