There is only one Rex Ryan. (No, Rob Ryan just doesn’t qualify as an ample replacement.)

While on with Mike Greenberg and ESPN’s “Get Up,” the former New York Jets head coach decided to turn it up on a Monday morning. He hilariously took it upon himself to teach New Orleans Saints head coach Sean Payton how to dance.

Ryan, 57, is now a card-carrying member of the media after two head coaching stints in the NFL.

From 2009 to 2010, he led the Jets to two straight AFC championship games. Jets fans fell in love with the engaging, fun-loving big guy. HBO’s Hard Knocks helped matters as well, with Ryan ramping up the entertainment value to an incredible degree.

Since the 2011 season and after he got his snack, however, Ryan couldn’t move the needle an inch. His 41-54 record since that point created the reality that he inherited one of the most talented teams in the league in 2009—a roster created by the Eric Mangini-Mike Tannenbaum combination.

Ryan’s critiquing of Payton’s dance moves come on the heels of the Saints’ overwhelming 38-3 stomping of Tom Brady‘s Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday Night Football. The Bucs put forth a miserable offensive performance while Payton’s Saints had the run of the place all night.

Perhaps it’s the sight of Brady getting stomped out that had Ryan excited on this Monday morning. After all, he was the man who helped keep Ryan and the Jets away from a home playoff game in the 2010 football season.

In any event, there is only one Rex Ryan. New York Jets fans have long known that fact, and the more he plants his face on national shows, the entirety of the country will eventually come to the same conclusion.
