Tomlinson: Jets bought into Ryan’s plan

One could argue the Jets have been successful in an area where many teams before them have failed: bringing in a collection of impressive individual pieces and making them work as a whole.

Over the last two seasons those pieces have included LaDainian Tomlinson, Antonio Cromartie, Santonio Holmes, Bart Scott, Braylon Edwards and Jim Leonhard, among others.

How have the Jets made it work?

During a sitdown with Fran Charles, Tomlinson answered that question in two words: Rex Ryan.

“One of the first things he talked about was everybody buying in and forgetting about individual success, and that it’s all about the team and the things we want to get accomplished here,” Tomlinson said. “Everybody bought in from day one, and I think you’re seeing the result of that.”
