Rex Ryan Gatorade Shower? It’s Nice to Know Jets Players Still Have a Strong Sense of Irony (Video)
Two head coaches got Gatorade showers on the last day of the 2014 NFL season. One of them was sincere. The other had to be ironic.
The sincere one was the Jim Harbaugh Gatorade shower. Harbaugh got canned by the 49ers (officially the split was mutual, but who are they kidding?) after going 44-19-1 in four seasons and making three straight trips to the NFC Championship Game. The fact that he was being forced out was just ridiculous. If anybody deserved a Gatorade shower yesterday, it was the new head coach of the Michigan Wolverines.
The ironic one was the Rex Ryan Gatorade shower. Ryan got canned by the Jets after going 46-50 over six seasons. And that record doesn’t even tell the story. The Jets have been embarrassing over the last three years, but were somehow lucky enough to average 7.3 wins. This year the luck ran out and they went 4-12.
Will we miss doing fun Rex Ryan posts? Of course we will. But the man does not deserve to be a head coach in the NFL, and he certainly didn’t deserve a Gatorade shower after beating the Dolphins yesterday.
And I thought the Tony Sparano Gatorade shower was ridiculous. This is a new all-time low for Gatorade celebrations.
