Before the season, Jets coach Rex Ryan declared his team the “soon to be champs.” After losing in Week One at home to the Ravens, Ryan softened his stance a bit.
But not much.
“No team’s going to go undefeated this year,” Ryan said after the game, per Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News. “Our goals stay same. We think we can win Super Bowl.”
“We think we can” is fundamentally different from “we will.”
But, hey, at least Ryan hasn’t already declared that the Jets are mathematically eliminated from the playoffs.
We’ll see what he’s saying on Sunday, if the Patriots come to town and send the Jets to 0-2.
