New York Jets coach Rex Ryan is known for making ridiculous statements regarding his feelings on his team. Pretty much over promising and under delivering. The Jets have fallen well short of their expectations three seasons in a row now.
Now, Ryan is choosing his words more carefully, but still says he’s confident his team can make the playoffs.
“I believe we’re better than that,” he said according to the New York Daily News‘ Manish Mehta. “I believe we’re a lot better than that. Eight-and-eight would be a hell of a disappointment for us. I’m just telling you that I believe this team is on the cusp of doing some special things. … I’m confident we will be a playoff team.”
