The Super Bowl champion Baltimore Ravens can't open the season at home because the Orioles play a game on September 5, when the season opener is scheduled to be played, and the two teams share a parking lot. While there was talk of the Orioles potentially moving their game to another time, Ryan proposed something more ridiculous -- moving it's location -- during a rant against the Baltimore baseball team.
"Well, who really cares, you've got 81 at home, maybe you could have done the right thing and given one up and then played 82 on the road and then 80 at home," he said. "I really don't think people are going to care about that game."
Perhaps Ryan didn't quite consider how substantial the loss in gate revenue, not to mention the lack of home-field advantage the Orioles would give up, in such a bizarre scenario.
"You have a chance to have the defending world champs open up the season at home where they rightfully should. That's unfortunate," the Jets coach added.
