NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Rex Ryan hasn’t been quiet lately. (Is he ever?)

The Jets’ head coach is clearly excited about the prospects of what his team can do in 2014, and he’s making it known.

General manager John Idzik — as is his custom — has remained relatively quiet, but he’s very confident in his squad with training camp at SUNY Cortland set to begin on Wednesday.

“Now we’re living together, now we don the pads (and) now we start to hit,” the soft-spoken general manager told NewYorkJets.com. “We’re playing in a couple of weeks, so it feels like this is the dawn of the 2014 season and just coming together. One nice thing about going away to camp, to Cortland, is you feel like it’s just you and it kind of lends to that building as a team.”

It’s this part of the journey, Idzik believes, when a team really becomes a TEAM.

“I look forward to that,” the GM told the website. “I look forward to the old-school aspects of training camp. It’s just us. We’re trudging through the challenging days together and we’re going to come together as a team.”

Though Idzik might not be as outspoken as his head coach, he shares the belief that the Jets can get over the hump and return to the playoffs for the first time since the 2010 campaign.

“We all have that same confidence,” the executive said. “You can feel that in the building. It’s genuine and that’s part of coming together. You develop that confidence when the guys know what to expect. There’s a comfort level, a certain level of comfort just working together. We have each other’s back.”
