Despite lagging in the weight room, New York Jets outside linebacker Quinton Coples is destined to contend for the 2013 Defensive Player of the Year award!/img/httpImage/image.jpg_gen/derivatives/landscape_635/quinton-coples.jpg

Quinton Coples will be a menace this autumn in East Rutherford.

Transitioning the promising defensive end to outside linebacker, New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan questioned Quinton Coples’ dedication in the weight room Friday.

Selected out of North Carolina with the 16th pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, the 22-year-old Coples compiled 30 tackles and 5.5 sacks in two starts as a rookie.

“If Quinton doesn’t do a better job in the weight room he might have to … he’s got to compete like anybody else for a job,” said Ryan, 50, a poor bastard who, regardless of having an overall record of 38-32, will likely be fired next January. “So I’m a little disappointed in Q in the weight room in the last day.”

A leader adored by most players, Ryan is certainly trying to motivate the 6-foot-6, 285 pound talent.

Ryan’s aggressive, and unpredictable, defensive schemes and blitz packages are predicated off blanket coverage in the secondary.

Despite losing Darrelle Revis, New York still has solid pass protection and a potentially standout front seven featuring Coples.

Teaching the Jets since 2009, Ryan has never had any semblance of a pass rush and that is finally destined to change in 2013.

Capable of running the 40-yard dash in 4.78 seconds, Coples is bound to become an absolute beast in the swamps of Jersey.

Ultimately, expect Quinton Coples to seriously contend for the AP NFL Defensive Player of the Year award this autumn.
