Rhodes and Woody like free speech

Jets safety Kerry Rhodes and right tackle Damien Woody opened up to Sam Farmer of the Los Angeles Times about their former coach (Eric Mangini) putting limits on freedom of speech, and how they didn't like it. And how they like Rex Ryan allowing freedom of speech.

"You can say what you want and speak your mind," Rhodes said about Ryan. "I think it's always best if you can do that, because if you don't you can end up holding so much stuff in that at the end of the day it can be combustible. That's how we ended up with the last coach."

"Here I am 31 years old, I've got my own kids, and I'm married, and here's someone that's not that much older than me -- or whatever the case may be -- telling me what I can and can't do," Woody said "It's so regimented where the game is just not a game anymore. It's not fun. Even when you win it's not fun."
