FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) - New York Jets offensive line coach Dave DeGuglielmo says rotating Matt Slauson and Vladimir Ducasse at left guard is ``a directive from high above me.''
Clearly unhappy with that decision, which comes from coach Rex Ryan, DeGuglielmo raves Thursday about Slauson while saying that Ducasse, a second-round pick in 2010, is ``playing well enough to be an every third series guy. Maybe.''
DeGuglielmo had a testy 15-minute sit-down with the media, his first group session since training camp. He opened with an angry statement stemming from an email sent by a reporter to the NFL offices that the coach hadn't met with the media during the bye week, the league minimum requirement. DeGuglielmo says he was available - but the facility was closed to media and Superstorm Sandy hit the area.
