Rex Ryan planning on getting a Super Bowl ring, quickly

Rex Ryan AP

Think an 8-8 record would get Rex Ryan to stop talking about winning a Super Bowl? Think again.

At a function on Wednesday night, Ryan displayed the Super Bowl ring he earned as an assistant with the Ravens and said he expects to earn another as head coach of the Jets, and to do it soon.

“I’m the only one [in the Ryan family of coaches] with only one Super Bowl ring,” Ryan said, via the New York Daily News. “But I’m planning on getting another one, and I’m planning on getting it quickly.”

Ryan refused to talk about rumors that the Jets could make a play for Peyton Manning, noting that he’d risk an NFL fine if he did, but he praised quarterback Mark Sanchez as having a bright future with the team. And he said that the disappointing ending to 2011 doesn’t diminish his bold ambitions with the Jets.

“We got some scars this year from this,” Ryan said. “Anybody who doesn’t have scars is either lying to you or never dared. One thing about us: We dare. We put it out there — I put it out there — that we want to be great.”

    tiki is flabbergasted.

  2. dolphindad says: Feb 16, 2012 1:25 PM

    I’m sure he can find one on ebay or the pawnstars pawn shop.

  3. gbrown23 says: Feb 16, 2012 1:25 PM

    I thought he said he would stop talking, as a jet fan,I was really looking forward to that

    Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.

  5. starfan79 says: Feb 16, 2012 1:26 PM

    I dare Rex to shut up.

  6. marcuswelby70 says: Feb 16, 2012 1:26 PM

    Some things never change!

  7. thatdudewiththemarauder says: Feb 16, 2012 1:27 PM

    Is he planning on coaching somewhere else?

  8. citizenstrange says: Feb 16, 2012 1:28 PM

    Is Mark Sanchez any better than Matt Leinart?

    They seem identical to me except that Leinart is more fragile I guess.

  9. tfbuckfutter says: Feb 16, 2012 1:28 PM

    Check Ebay, Rex.

  10. grpatriot says: Feb 16, 2012 1:28 PM

    How long before he gauruntees one this season?
    over/under april

  11. ammarradhi says: Feb 16, 2012 1:28 PM

    Is he buying a Giants ring off eBay?

  12. premiumpit says: Feb 16, 2012 1:30 PM

    This guy is a JOKE!!!

  13. burnsy says: Feb 16, 2012 1:31 PM

    Someone should make an eBay joke.

  14. roxtar10 says: Feb 16, 2012 1:32 PM

    Winning a Super Bowl quickly? What’s he going to do, upgrade his quarterback for a savvy veteran with a winning pedigree? Oh….wait….

  15. clintonportisheadd says: Feb 16, 2012 1:32 PM

    “Rex Ryan planning on getting a Super Bowl ring, quickly…”

    ————————-

    My first thought was a guest appearance on “Pawn Stars”. The TV Guide would say something like ‘Jet’s Coach Ryan meets kindred spirit Chumlee while buying Brock Williams Super Bowl ring’

    My second thought was he was going to find Brandon Jacobs and sit on him until he gave Rex his.

  16. 6ball says: Feb 16, 2012 1:33 PM

    .

    Closer to 4-12 than 12-4.

  17. yournuts says: Feb 16, 2012 1:33 PM

    It must of killed him to see the Giants beat the Patriots in the Super Bowl!

  18. bullcharger says: Feb 16, 2012 1:37 PM

    Guys like this never stop talking. People eventually just stop listening. Once he is fired from the Jets in a year or so no one will ever interview him again.

  19. omegalh says: Feb 16, 2012 1:38 PM

    One thing here is for certain, Payton Manning will never play for that class-less big mouth!

    Not with that QB, Rex.

    No way.

  24. hawkforlife says: Feb 16, 2012 1:45 PM

    Ryan refused to talk….”, can’t be.

  25. ravensruleandharbaughisgod says: Feb 16, 2012 1:46 PM

    Rex, you do realize you are the Coach (at least for now) of the J-E-T-S, correct?

  26. Hello. Is that you James? says: Feb 16, 2012 1:46 PM

    I know I’m going to get lampooned for this, but give Rex Ryan a break. He led the Jets to the AFC Championship game his first two years as their coach! Sure, last season imploded, but you guys are making comments as if he only won a couple games each year. You guys are ridiculous!

  27. wtf_seriously says: Feb 16, 2012 1:48 PM

    Rex, next time you are asked about the future of the Jets, please just say that your team sucks and they will never earn a ring. That’ll teach ‘em.

  28. goldrush36 says: Feb 16, 2012 1:48 PM

    Why, did somebody pawn one? He sure as hell isn’t gonna win one

  29. pitchblack816 says: Feb 16, 2012 1:48 PM

    I’m so glad this clown is out of Baltimore. Thank you Ozzie for not hiring this guy as the HC!

  30. alltee says: Feb 16, 2012 1:51 PM

    when he kisses bellichecks rings he is going to try and steal one

    cause the only rings in this losers future are the onion rings at denny”s

  31. illinininer says: Feb 16, 2012 1:51 PM

    I think all teams “put it out there” but they do so by working in their offices and not in radio interviews. By being a head coach or general manager or any member of an NFL organization you “put it out there” every day of the year.

  32. mhalt99 says: Feb 16, 2012 1:51 PM

    no, Lin plays for the Knicks, not for the Jets.

  33. musicman495 says: Feb 16, 2012 1:51 PM

    Let’s be clear about this, in case this quote clouds the issue – for all the mouthiness and self promotion in the entire Ryan family, the three of them have won a grand total of ONE super bowl ring as either a coordinator or head coach – Buddy’s as dc for the Bears. The rest is just hot air, or going along for the ride as assistants on someone else’s staff.

  34. whatnojets says: Feb 16, 2012 1:52 PM

    Boomer Esiason was there too….he had some nice words about Mark Sanchez! To bad you did not include that into your post.

  35. cmb79 says: Feb 16, 2012 1:53 PM

    He is simply incapable of not making himself or his team look bad.

  36. getthegleam says: Feb 16, 2012 1:55 PM

    Greatest part of the whole story was when he said, “One thing about us: We dare.” How about you dare yourself to stay quiet.

    They showed a video clip of Manningham making the winning catch. Rex Ryan shifted in his seat and clapped lightly.

  38. bearsrulepackdrool says: Feb 16, 2012 1:55 PM

    He means when becomes D-coordinator for the Pats next year.

  39. jetfuel6 says: Feb 16, 2012 1:56 PM

    Wheres Baltimore right now? Oh wait thats right Rex has taken the Jets just as far. Quit hating on Sanchez worry about ur own Qbs

  40. radrntn says: Feb 16, 2012 1:56 PM

    peyton?

  41. ampats says: Feb 16, 2012 1:56 PM

    Sounds like he is planning on breaking into the Giants locker room and stealing Tom Coughlin’s ring because that will be the closest he will ever be to one as a HC in the NFL.

    Hello is that you james? Typical jets fan comment, “we made it to the AFC Championship game twice” .

    But then again after 43 years of futility and knowing the Houston Oilers have won more AFC East Championships than the jets I guess that is as good as it will ever get!

    Next comes the 44th SB less season in a row!

  42. jetfuel6 says: Feb 16, 2012 1:59 PM

    Il Take Sanchez over Flacco any day. Raven fans make me laugh

  43. 13forgbp says: Feb 16, 2012 1:59 PM

    how about this…the next time this joker says something like this the media simply ignore him.

    that would achieve the dual purpose of most likely shutting him up completely and me not having to read the same story recycled for the 19th time.

  44. thereisfootballwestofjersey says: Feb 16, 2012 2:00 PM

    I can’t stand the Meadowlands Jets. However, if Rex goes 9-7 or worse, they will have to part ways with him and he knows it. This is it big fella. Time to produce or you’ll get the big black, sexy stilletto send off

  45. almighty1 says: Feb 16, 2012 2:00 PM

    Sanchez and Santonio. Yep, that’s a recipe for success! Oh wait, got it mixed up. Its actually a recipe for a sh!t sandwich.

  46. tigerdactyl says: Feb 16, 2012 2:00 PM

    Maybe as a d-line coach for another team

  47. blackdonnelly says: Feb 16, 2012 2:02 PM

    Hello:

    The issue here is not whether he won a few games – he actually did a decent job. What the issue is, is his flapping yap. He guarantees a Bowl win every year, yet the only bowl he gets to visit is the porcelain one he sits on every morning. So, why we harsh on Fatboy is simple – he cannot shut up nor back up his alleged guarantees. And until he develops a sense of humility, groups his poop, gets his team all on the same page, and gets them to a Bowl that’s way overdue, and actually wins it, only then will we shut up.

    Until then, Rex is a target. Fair game (LOL)

  48. mikeyfresh25 says: Feb 16, 2012 2:05 PM

    Why don’t you get your WR to stop hitting the trees, Smith to learn how to play safety, Hunter to pass protect, and your QB to stop throwing with his eyes closed

  49. southpaw2k says: Feb 16, 2012 2:05 PM

    You know, if you tallied up all the events and reports that have come out of the Jets this offseason, and then made a movie out of it, I bet most movie audiences wouldn’t buy it because it’s too ludicrous. It’d have to be a comedy with all the turmoil, right down to Rex’s predictions that the team will somehow win the Super Bowl.

  50. TxGrown says: Feb 16, 2012 2:05 PM

    C’mon now isn’t that what ALL coaches want? A Super Bowl Ring? Well maybe except those who coach in Dallas.

  51. youdownwithjpp says: Feb 16, 2012 2:08 PM

    I believe he is referring to the ring he is receiving as a “thank you” from the Mara and Tisch families for waking up and motivating the sleeping GIANTS.

    Thanks again REX! The Giants organization appreciates your help, couldn’t of done it without you!!

  52. catman72 says: Feb 16, 2012 2:14 PM

    Talk is cheap, just shut up and do it.

    I understood the bravado when he first got there, the needs had a culture of losing and it needed to change, but now they’ve had some success so they need to pipe down and get to work – all this talk creates too many distractions. Nobody ever won a SB by talking about it.

  53. xli2006 says: Feb 16, 2012 2:22 PM

    Most coaches that end up winning a Super Bowl usually just go about their business and let it happen IF it even does.

    The last few coaches to win: Coughlin, McCarthy, Tomlin, Dungy weren’t mouthing off about winning Rings… they just went out and did it and even after they won they didn’t rub it in either.

    Rex is fixated on the Ring and not how to get there, something that respectable and legendary coaches do NOT do.

    A lot of things have to go right to win even 1, start with winning the Division first and then see what happens.

  54. brenenostler says: Feb 16, 2012 2:23 PM

    Well what is he supposed to say? They don’t plan on getting a ring soon?

    To be even clearer, Rex has 1 from Baltimore, Buddy has 1 each from the Jets and the Bears, and Rob has 2 from the Pats. What was that you were saying about ‘mouthiness’?

    How about saying nothing about winning the Super Bowl, just for once… you know, thats always an option for every other Head coach in the league.

  57. whatnojets says: Feb 16, 2012 2:30 PM

    There are a very few sports associated personalities that a vast amount of people who know their names.

    The list is:

    Peyton Manning
    Rex Ryan
    Jeremy Lin
    Tom Brady
    Mark Sanchez
    Santonio Holmes
    Eli Manning

    Those are right now the most talked about Sports People in the entire world!

  58. steelersarewhatfootballisabout says: Feb 16, 2012 2:36 PM

    Interesting that Rex doesn’t bother to mention that his family may have multiple Superbowl rings, but none of them have done it as a head coach. Buddy’s ego was twice that of his sons, and he won ‘em as assistants, on the Jets huge upset of the the Colts, and when he was under Ditka coaching da Bears D. Buddy may know the X’s and O’s and taught that to his sons, but he forgot or didn’t have the ability to teach them about how humbleness doesn’t equal weakness. Look at Tomlin, Dungy, even Belichick (who has the personality of sandpaper at times unless yer a 1st ballot Hall of Famer he’s coachin’). They know that actions will speak louder than words.

  59. sj39 says: Feb 16, 2012 2:36 PM

    Not a Jets fan but I have to admit, I paid little or no attention to them before Rex and his famous “we’re not gonna kiss his rings” comment. Loved it. Coaches like him a great for the NFL and if I were an owner and my HC did not state the goal every year was to win the Super Bowl I would fire him. I’ve always heard him say that but never a guarantee that they would just that that was the goal.

  60. satanphoenix says: Feb 16, 2012 2:37 PM

    I thought there was a 3rd brother named Dan who is not in football. At least I recall he opened a bar called Dan Ryan’s around the time the Ryan Family stunk up Arizona. Wikipedia is no help on finding out about Dan. I’ll be the first to admit my confidence on a 3rd bother is only at 70-80%

  61. armchairqb says: Feb 16, 2012 2:38 PM

    No chance Peyton plays for the Jets.

    Thus, no chance this team wins a Super Bowl in our lifetime.

  62. IainRWB says: Feb 16, 2012 2:46 PM

    Great way to pull a quote out of context. He was being asked about his day 1 prediction that the Jets would win a SB in Obama’s presidency. He said he thought they were the best team the last three years but was proven wrong.

    You expect him to say they’re not going to try to win this year? Not much chance of that.

  63. cliffordc05 says: Feb 16, 2012 2:47 PM

    The first year Rex shot his mouth off it was obnoxious, the second year it was kind of a boring sideshow, and now it has moved to the pathetic. You can’t teach smart to stupid.

  64. moolah954 says: Feb 16, 2012 2:51 PM

    isnt winning a super bowl every teams goal why harp on when Rex says it???

    ——————–

    So the fact that he guarantees the SB but doesn’t deliver is ok with you?

    Personally, I am ok him continuing to be wrong but give him a break – I don’t think so…

  66. eaglesandravens says: Feb 16, 2012 3:04 PM

    The only Ryan with a superbowl ring?? but i thought Buddy Ryan got a ring with the 85′ bears.

  67. canesgiants says: Feb 16, 2012 3:09 PM

    ive never seen an assistant coach so excited about wearing his ring. he wasnt a coordinator he was an assistant.

  68. wenellniners says: Feb 16, 2012 3:12 PM

    personally i don’t like rex but i don’t see anything newsworthy here.

    everyone’s goal is to win a superbowl and it’s the toughest championship to win in all of sports.

    at least the guy has a goal….

  69. janseninpa says: Feb 16, 2012 3:32 PM

    TCU stands a better chance of a national championship than Rex getting a second ring, at least as long as Sanchez is at the helm -sorry for party rocking.

  70. magnuminsp says: Feb 16, 2012 3:39 PM

    “Rex Ryan planning on getting a Super Bowl ring, quickly…”

    Maybe Bill Bilichick and a few other coaches should beef up their security!

  71. gobigblue310 says: Feb 16, 2012 3:40 PM

    Regardless of who the head coach is, these days it takes an elite QB to win a ring. We all know there is only one ELIte QB in that town.

  72. 2dollarpbrs says: Feb 16, 2012 3:50 PM

    Well September isn’t too far away and that is when the Jets win the Super Bowl every year……

  75. roadtrip3500 says: Feb 16, 2012 4:52 PM

    In the 6 seasons Mike Tannenbaum has been Jets GM…

    Jets:
    – 2 head coaches
    – 4 starting QBs
    – no division titles
    – 3 playoff appearances
    – no playoff home games
    – no wins beyond the division round
    – no Super Bowls
    – 3 Super Bowl guarantees

    Giants:
    – 1 head coach
    – 1 starting QB
    – 2 division titles
    – 4 playoff appearances
    – 2 playoff home games
    – 2 NFC titles
    – 2 Super Bowl wins
    – zero guarantees

    Coughlin just matched Parcells with 2 Lombardis in 5 seasons. If Coughlin and Eli win a third before Rex and Sanchez win their first, the Giants will be firmly enshrined as the football gods in New York, and nothing Rex does after that, short of 3 straight Super Bowls, will ever change that.

    Rex, it’s what you do, not what you say.

  76. Patskrieg dot com says: Feb 16, 2012 5:09 PM

    Humble Rex Ryan lasted all of what… a month? Although I’m sure that’s a Ryan family record.

    Looking forward to an offseason of tuning you out, coach. See you in Septemeber.

  77. leftcoastnative says: Feb 16, 2012 5:12 PM

    Instead of Rex giving up sweets for Lent (like that really has worked!) he needs to give up making bombastic and ludicrous statements for those 47 days. Maybe if he is not always opening his mouth making crazy statements, he won’t follow up with the twinkies, dingdongs and hohos.

  78. rubbernilly says: Feb 16, 2012 5:17 PM

    As a Pts fan, i like Rex…. i really, really do. But SHUT UP! You arent winning the Super Bowl quickly… or in the future. Just stop!

  80. paulieorkid says: Feb 16, 2012 5:39 PM

    Rex is always telling us how much courage he has, how only he is willing to dare, how he’s got the guts to lay it out there.

    Anyone can mouth off and make “guarantees” that aren’t honored the way “guarantees” are intended.

    What Rex thinks is such gutsy behavior sounds a lot more like being a blowhard – than being an honorable man of unbreakable courage.

  81. garyman1 says: Feb 16, 2012 5:42 PM

    Does he mean “quickly”….as in the evolutionary time clock where decades and centuries qualify as brief periods of time ?

  85. drunkenagitator says: Feb 16, 2012 6:21 PM

    The last tick of the Super Bowl to early October = the Jets highlight reel. Too bad Rexy can’t win when it really matters. He’ll be fired within a year or two, tops.

  86. eknirb says: Feb 16, 2012 6:31 PM

    so he’s gonna go buy one @ a pawn shop?

  87. steelcurtainn says: Feb 16, 2012 6:36 PM

    The only superbowl ring rex ryan will be getting is immitation ring you order online like the rest of the fans. Because he sure isn’t winning one. Hey heres an idea, How about you order the ring the steelers wons in superbowl 43! That would look good on you.

  88. damnyankee13 says: Feb 16, 2012 6:56 PM

    Ther are 2 qays that rex ryan will get a SB rig–

    1] buy 0ne

    2] have one made.

    That is it.

  89. hawkforlife says: Feb 16, 2012 6:57 PM

    Next stop for Ryan, strength and conditioning coach. All talk , do like I say, not like I do.

  90. northsidesteel says: Feb 16, 2012 7:20 PM

    When Rex became head coach, I really enjoyed his confidence and his bombastic nature, though frankly this is getting a little tiresome. We all know that winning a Super Bowl is as much about team solidarity, individual execution, staying healthy as a team and frankly good luck as it is good coaching. I think that Rex’s constant claims hurt his chances of keeping his job, and will turn him into a non-factor for other coaching opportunites

  91. bamasleeper13 says: Feb 16, 2012 8:54 PM

    Oh Rex,just stop talking and produce! The last few Superbowl winning coaches said very little but just quietly kept winning week after week. Rex has tremendous entertainment value! He cracks me up. Everyone needs a class clown.

  92. j0esixpack says: Feb 16, 2012 9:50 PM

    Actually I think fans are over reacting to this one.

    If Rex doesn’t openly express an intent to win a Super Bowl for the Jets they might as well fire him right now.

    Guaranteeing a Super Bowl is still stupid – but making clear winning one in the short term is your goal is expected.

  93. j0ey15 says: Feb 17, 2012 1:26 AM

    I don’t understand what everyone is getting all upset about? You people hate Rex because he says in public what every other coach says inside there locker room.. What is he supposed to say “gee guys I kindve hope we can win a few games here and there”… This story is a joke and you morons commenting like he’s talking out of context are even bigger jokes

  94. jetfanfolife says: Feb 17, 2012 11:38 AM

    I love the Bravado! Keep it up!

    Just make sure the players keep their mouths shut next season.

  95. pisano says: Feb 27, 2012 12:07 AM

    Rex has to learn to keep his big mouth shut!
