Apparently Rob Ryan Would Be A Head Coach If He Just Cut His Hair


Rob Ryan Long HairNFL owners and executives are officially the dumbest group of people in the world. I’m sure there are many groups tied with them (other sports owners, politicians, sports bloggers…), but you can’t top this stupidity. I’m not sure I buy this at all, but Chris Mortensen is a reliable ESPN reporter, and he insists that Rob Ryan isn’t a head coach because he has long hair.

But as other coordinators are being considered for head coaching vacancies, Ryan is supposedly being passed over simply because of his hair.

During Monday’s “NFL Insiders” Monday, (Chris) Mortensen revealed executives told him, “If he wants to be a head coach, he has to cut his hair. It is about image for these guys. They want a CEO-type. That’s what they want.”

Apparently, people have been “truly impressed” by Ryan, but his look just doesn’t fit the bill. Maybe he should take a page out of his twin brother’s playbook and get a nice, cropped do.

Don’t be surprised when Tim Cook is named the next Lions’ head coach. The only thing going against him is the uncertainty of whether or not he’ll approve of iPad playbooks.

    That is so stupid! These corporate nerds are telling us the NFL fans what the head coach should look like? Korny. If Rob Ryan is an excellent candidate he should be interviewed with everyone else!

    There’s a chart for when Rex did his weight ‘loss’ thing. The date of the start, the Jets won/loss record. For every X amount of pounds LOST the chart goes down, on the opposite side the Jets losses go UP.

    So the coach has to look all prim and proper, but everyone else can look like slobs and serial killers? Too funny. Cleveland should go get him….Now…
