That Post story about Rex Ryan crying in front of his team really shook up your sports pages this week.
The Daily News plays catch-up today, putting both Rich Cimini and Gary Myers on it. Myers says Ryan should be more like former Cowboys legend Tom Landry.
“He’s a real emotional guy,” Buddy told The Post last night. “He’s a great motivator. We know he knows the game. Better than most.”
Informed that Rex had cried in front of his team Monday morning, a story reported exclusively in The Post, Buddy said he had never done that, but viewed it in a positive light.
“Sometimes you have to do things to get their attention,” he said.
Meanwhile, the Daily News goes big on Wally Backman getting hired by the Brooklyn Cyclones, while the Post runs an Allen Iverson cover, which they maybe would have done the day before–like the Daily News had–if they hadn’t had the Rex Watergate thing.
