Rex Ryan isn't shy about Jets' Super Bowl odds: 'We should be favorites'

    FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- Rex Ryan is feeling Super these days.

    The New York Jets' confident first-year coach believes his team should not only be favored to beat the Cincinnati Bengals but to win the Super Bowl.
    During his daily news conference Wednesday, Ryan was asked what his reaction was to the team not being expected to win the championship.

    "I wasn't aware of that," Ryan said, "but to me, we should be favorites, so that's fine."
    Ryan then was asked to clarify if he meant the Jets should be favored to beat the Bengals in Saturday's AFC wild-card playoff game in Cincinnati.

    "I mean in the whole tournament," he said. "You know the way that I feel."
    That's right. The guy who mistakenly thought the Jets were eliminated from the playoff picture after losing to the Atlanta Falcons three weeks ago believes his team can win it all.

    "I think we have the best defense, I know we do," Ryan said. "I know we have the best rushing attack. Those are two huge factors in our favor. With a couple of exceptions on our staff, myself probably, I think we have a great coaching staff."
    When told of Ryan's statement, Jets defensive coordinator Mike Pettine smiled.

    "Shocks me," said Pettine, whom Ryan brought with him from Baltimore. "Like I've said before, that's Rex being Rex."
    The Jets beat the Bengals 37-0 last Sunday to make it into the playoffs.

    "I want this football team," Ryan said. "I'm not going to trade our team. If I had a choice to coach any team in this tournament, I would choose this one."
    The Jets, of course, haven't won the Super Bowl since 1969, when quarterback Joe Namath helped deliver the franchise's only title -- with Ryan's father, Buddy, the defensive line coach.

    2 weeks ago he said THEY WERE DONE! He said they had no chance to make the playoffs.

    I find Rex to be pretty likeable but the last time he was this overconfident in his team they went into a tailspin... his bravado is writing the checks, let's see if his team can cash 'em this time.

    Meh - I would expect him to say this. After all - remember his bloodline.

    Big mouths run in the family.

    Whatever about them being favorites to win it all, I still say they beat the Bengals. They might even beat the Colts provided the Patriots win.

    And they do have a good defense and running game.

    But they have not seen anything like the current Air Norv corps. :tup:

    I agree. That's how I would want my coach to approach things if we were in their shoes.

    What do people want, for him to say "We're just lucky to be here"? :lol:

    For me the funniest thing ever was when Mike Tomlin said that the Steelers were "going to unleash hell" after losing to the Chiefs only to lose to Baltimore, Oakland, and Cleveland the following weeks.

    Yeah, right after the home loss to the Falcons, Ryan also said that the Jets weren't good enough to reach the playoffs.

    That was also the last time they faced a team where all the starters played the entire game.

    Oh man, the other 3 AFC North teams were laughing their butts off when he said that and they then lost to the Brownies.
