I love Rex Ryan, but if this report is true, I’m not sure he’ll ever be able to preach discipline to any team again.
While Ryan has moved on to Buffalo, the lackadaisical attitude surrounding the Jets remained, causing Todd Bowles some early headaches.
According to Ian Rapoport — the Jets players were so undisciplined — guys would go to strip clubs and bars, early Sunday morning after bed check.
What atmosphere did #Jets coach Todd Bowles inherit? Before he arrived, players would go to bars/strip clubs before games, after bed check

This information comes on the heels of Muhammad Wilkerson getting benched during the first quarter of last week’s Jets game for being late to team meetings. It was just the final disciplinary issue for Mo — who before signing his five-year, $86 million deal with the Jets in July — met with Jets coach Todd Bowles to hash out issues related to his past behavior.
the move to discipline Wilkerson and others is just Bowles trying to change an environment that was reckless at best.
