NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Rex Ryan’s job could be in jeopardy if the Jets fail to make the playoffs for the fourth straight year.
But he doesn’t think that’ll be an issue. Neither do his players, who are becoming more like their boisterous head coach with each passing day.
“For the first time in my career, I can say it with conviction and say it with belief: this is a playoff team,” Jets wide receiver David Nelson told the New York Daily News during an appearance for his charity on Monday.
Also on Monday, linebacker DeMario Davis told WFAN radio that “this team is more than a playoff team, honestly.”
“Three years without getting into the playoffs is unacceptable and so we know that we need to get in there this year,” Davis said. “Failure is not an option. Not getting into the playoffs is not an option for us.”
