What would training camp be without Rex Ryan shooting off at the mouth? Love him or hate him, he’s always good for a bold statement every, oh, day or so.
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.
Rex Ryan often gets singled out for what is perceived as an over-the-top cockiness. DeMario Davis simply calls what his coach has confidence — and says it’s something the Jets have to a man.
Rex Ryan is no longer the emasculated head coach of the Jets, neutered by the talk of being fired. The guns are blazing and he’s a little cocky again – though he likely would call it confidence. Either way, his team will need him that way.
New playmakers, fresh-faced rookies and a rejuvenated Rex Ryan. They all have the New York Jets feeling pretty optimistic heading into training camp, with their sights set on ending a three-year playoff drought.
Rex Ryan expects the Jets to do something special this season. And he says his nemesis in New England — Patriots coach Bill Belichick — should be thinking along those lines, too.
The Jets have much to accomplish this camp. If they get it done, Rex might just have a shot at sticking around.
“I believe we’re a lot better than that. 8-8 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.”
It’s always football season. That’s why it’s not premature to contemplate the Jets and realize that 2014 has a chance to be much better and more exciting than last year.
Add yet another chapter to the long-running saga that is the Jets-Patriots rivalry. But, here’s a new twist: Rex Ryan actually defended Bill Belichick. Wait. Say what?
Rex Ryan and his playbook were first up on the discussion docket, this after said playbook may or may not have fallen into enemy hands up in New England.
Former Jets defensive coordinator and current Cleveland Browns head coach Mike Pettine has a theory many Gang Green supporters aren’t going to like.
Johnson wouldn’t reveal any specific goals he has set for his team, but insisted this year’s Jets are “absolutely” better than the group that walked off the field after the season finale in 2013.
For the longest time the Jets have been trying to tell anyone who will listen that any talk of an open competition for the starting quarterback position is being conducted by those simply not paying attention.
The presence of Michael Vick doesn’t shake his confidence. Neither does his not-so-solid hold on the New York Jets’ quarterback job. Not even his uncertain status as the future of the franchise.
