Tale Of The Tape: Who’s Easier To Cheer For? Rex Ryan Vs. Rob Ryan

Rex Ryan and Rob Ryan are frequently grouped together like some kind of giant, living, breathing, cinnamon bun. But it’s not often that these two animated bros are held in comparison to each other. Today, we seek to right that wrong. Today we’ll finally answer the question – who’s easier to cheer for, Rex Ryan or Rob Ryan? Let’s go to the tape.

Name?
Winner “Rex” is great! It’s like a dinosaur!
Meh. It’s fine.
Hair?
Rex has your standard $12 haircut that you can set your watch to. how boring.
Winner Rob has long flowing hair, much like a proud lion.
Is He A Loudmouth?
I’m a Pats fan, but even without that qualifier...yes.
Winner It seems that Rob has been better about keeping mum this season. Animated, yes. But there seem to be fewer quotes floating around.
Publicly Known Fetish?
Ew. Yes. Gross. Ugh.
Winner Mercifully not.
More Likeable Team?
Winner Again, Pats fan here. I can’t vote for Rex. Never ever ever.
Winner But...as much as I legitimately like Drew Brees, and the city of New Orleans, and the nice story of the Saints' success post-Katrina...there’s still the whole Bountygate thing.
Better Fan Interactions?
If there are any, I haven’t heard of ‘em
Winner Rob’s been spotting partying with Nola Locals at least twice this season. He’s in full on Bill Murray mode.

The Winner Is

5 out of 6

With a score of 5-2, Rob Ryan takes it! Man, his stock has really been rising ever since he left the Cowboys, huh?

    Tale Of The Tape: Football vs. Futbol

    With the World Cup still going strong and the NFL just weeks away from getting started it seemed like a fun idea to compare the two sports that share the same name…sort of. From the global “futbol” to the American “football” these sports are two of the most popular in their own right. As somewhat of a disclaimer I will add that this Tale of the Tape is being written by an American, though I am a big soccer fan. That being said, let’s start the debate.

    Tale Of The Tape: World Cup Vs. Olympics

    There are very few worldwide occurrences that captivate fans of every nation the way that the Olympics and World Cup have proven to do. When the time comes for either event you can bet that the majority of the world shifts their attention to these amazing month-long competitions. 2014 has been a great year for fans of the Olympics and the World Cup as both took place in the span of just a few months. With the World Cup still going strong and the Olympics fresh in the minds of fans across the globe, let’s see how they match up when placed side-by-side.
