Rex Ryan: I want the Patriots to know I think we’ll beat them

AP

The Jets are preparing to play the Patriots this week, and Rex Ryan is wasting no time in giving bulletin-board material to his AFC East rival.

“I want them to know — and they know that, I think — I think we’re going to beat them,” Ryan said on Monday. “I recognize that they’re a great football team and [Bill] Belichick’s a great coach. I’ve never once said that he wasn’t. But again, we’re not going to back down or concede anything.”

In the surprisingly competitive AFC East, where all four teams are 3-3, Ryan says he views playing the Patriots like a title fight.

“They’re going to get our best shot and we know we’re going to get theirs,” Ryan added. “It really doesn’t matter who says what. But we are going to be ourselves. We’re coming there to take our swing. We’ll see if we land that punch to win the game.”

Ryan said the Jets have built their team with the goal of matching up with the Patriots in mind. And he thinks that on Sunday, the way the Jets have built their team will pay off.

  1. You are a big bag of wind. The Patriots will dismember you team of misfits.
    I am looking forward to the slaughter

  2. i guess he woke after a great win, a great team performance and said “hey, where did the circus go? i know, i’ll have a press conference.”

  3. At some point does even the most die hard Jets fan get tired of the talking?

    There is nothing wrong with be confident, buy why give it to the media regardless of what they ask.
    Just deflect the question, why put extra pressure on your players?

  4. Because clearly what the Pats need is bulletin board material coming off a loss in Seattle. Rex, when will you learn…

  5. Jets beat a bad team and now they are calling their shot in Foxborough. I don’t think it’s a very wise decision to call them out after they just choked away sure victory in Seattle. I wonder if Rex has forgotten what happened last season when the Patriots were coming off 2 straight losses, fielding a practice squad defense and heading into New York with their backs against the wall.

  6. I have a feeling that the Patriots like their fans could care less regarding what Rex Ryan thinks.

    Has anything he has ever predicted come true?

    Rex Ryan,the Harold Camping of the NFL.

  7. As you can probably figure out, I’m no fan of the Jets or Ryan… but he wouldn’t be much of a head coach if he DIDN’T think his team could beat their opponent every week. Calling this “bulletin board material” is reaching.

  8. Here we go again with Rex mouthing off. Stupid because the Patriots won’t lie down for anyone.
    Tom Brady will give Sanchez a lesson in how to be a good QB, because he’s not very good. Hope the Jets forget their game against the 49ers.
    Well done Rex, just” get your foot out of your mouth”.

  9. You are a big bag of wind. The Patriots will dismember your team of misfits, just as we did to the Cardinals and Seahawks. I am looking forward to the slaughter.

  10. I’m sick of Rex Ryan and can’t wait to watch the Patriots beat the Jets.

    As a Seahawks fan, I got an up-close and personal view of the Patriots yesterday, and that team is the best team we’ve played all year by a really large margin. They are very very good, way better than their .500 record suggests. I can’t imagine why anybody would talk smack about the Pats, I think they’re going to win the AFC again this season. And I’m rooting for them too because that game yesterday was the best I’ve seen in a very long time.

    Rex should learn from the Seahawks, and shut up with the smack-talk until after the game, IF you win. The Jets are gonna get SMACKED.

  11. That a boy, Rex! You tell them as you see it!

    I want to say baby-face Brady on his butt all day long!

    Go get ’em, Rex!

  12. How can you believe you’ve built a team to “match up” with another (that scores a lot typically) when you haven’t got as QB?

    Little Markie Sanchez may score at the prom but not much else happening there. Don’t like the Pats but they should destroy the hapless jests.

  13. Rexy’s Jets hit the Colts hard at home, catching them after an emotional win they had for Pagano as he endures his cancer treatments.

    Emotional wins are usually only good for a week and the Jets got to pounce on a drained team.

    The Pats will be at home and they usually win their must-wins, especially at Gillette. Bask in your 3-3 status while it lasts Rexy.

  14. Fat man beats a bad team, his QB throws for 82 yards, and he calls out the Patriots.

    The Patriots could literally score 50 against the Jets. At that rate, Sanchez will only need one touchdown every 12 yards to win.

  15. Having Giant HC Tom Coughlin coaching in the same city makes Sexy Rexy and his Jet schtick look so bush league.

    A very angry at themselves Patriot team is going to kill the Jets on Sunday.

    ___________________________________

    While I agree it’s not bulletin board material per say. Rex can’t help himself but to make predictions and pump his flabby chest. How about be humble and say that it is going to be a hard fought game between two division rivals and we are going to do everything we can to win? I mean that is the way a coach should speak. But Rex is too cool for that.

  17. Of course Ryan thinks his team is going to win. Look I’m a Patriots fan and I have no problem with what he is saying he’s confident in his team. Personally I think the Patriots are going to come out very focused and very motivated and they will execute very well on Sunday. Not because they are playing the Jets but because they know they are better than what they have displayed thus far.

    We’ll see what happens on Sunday. I can’t wait no fan base is worse to commiserate with than Patriots fans after they lose a game. All of a sudden the sky is falling Brady and Belichick stink and the Patriots are finished that’s the mentality of most Patriots fans right now.

    And us Pats fans wonder why every other fan base hates us. We are all so spoiled that being 3-3 and tied for first in the division is looked at as a massive non-reversible failure. I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again once Brady and Belichick leave Patriots games will be close to being blacked out this fan-base is made up of a lot of band-wagoners.

    I have faith in the Pats they will respond with a vintage performance this Sunday.

  18. Lets see. The Pats are coming off a stunning loss to the upstart Seahawks and the Jets are coming off a thrashing of an overachieving Colts team. Throw in Rex’s usual hollow barbs at NE and there is no spread big enough to keep me away from betting my house on the Pats at home this weekend.

  19. Rex, you beat the 2012 Colts. Not the Colts of the last decade. More than likely the Browns will beat the Colts. And furthermore, you’re going into Foxboro, after a 3 game homestead in MetLife, against a Patriots team that just got beat in the last seconds, in an extremely volatile environment that is Century Link Stadium. Brady and Bill will not take their foot off your turkey neck even if it’s 50-0 when the 4th quarter starts. You’re setting yourself up for failure and embarrassment. When will you learn? PS, that Tebow 4th down bull wont fool the Pats.

  20. Yes , And coming from you Rex , I’m sure Bill and the Patriots are losing sleep over another one of your dumb worthless predictions. My goodness this guy has to be the undisputed Heavyweight champion of garbage . Here is my prediction Fatboy… Patriots will be up by 4 touchdowns by the half.

    Which superstar was at QB for the Cardinals and Seahawks?

  22. The sad part is that even with Rex’s injured team, they will most likely beat the Pats as long as New England keeps putting that pathetic secondary on the field.

  23. As a Pats fan I admit to concern over the team, notably our god awful secondary. Still, we’ve lost 3 games by a combined 4 points, two of them on the road in tough venues. Honestly not sure why Rex thought it was a good idea to get the Pats fired up, but…thanks?

    ——————————————————
    Of course head coaches plan to win; the difference is that most don’t announce that they think they will win in a press conference. THAT is the bulletin board part.

  25. After the way the Patriots played yesterday and that hot garbage secondary of theirs. And the way Brady mismanaged the game, I don’t blame you for feeling confident.

  26. A coach being confident, but keeping his mouth shut, is normal.

    Blabbing about it to your opponent? It’s uniquely Rex Ryan.

    The Patriots have been wasting scoring opportunities of late. It’s time to fix that and just pour it on.

  27. Typical Jet behavior…..They beat a rebuilding Colts team and they are back to going to the Super Bowl……

  28. wow, does he ever shut up..
    Rex- u beat the Bills, Colts, and Dolphins…2 of those at home..
    hoody isn’t going to respond, cause he fears nothing about u , your foot fetish, your horrible starting qb and the jets in general…
    pats will sweep the jets…again

  29. Instead of blaming the secondary, Pats fans should be blaming Belichick. By not kicking a field goal at the end of the first half, he lost the game. What in the hell was Belichick thinking?

  30. Beginning as a Namth-era Jet fan, I’m pissed at Rex!
    The Pats won’t lose two in a row. What benefit is it to mouth off? It embarrasses me!
    It’s not the Jets that said the Pats will lose-it’s effin Rex.
    Rex did you get the report on Bilal Powell? Dislocated shoulder.
    Even if the Jets should win, he takes the fun out of it, because most Jets fans do not have the personality of Rex. I can thinkl of just two. Their last names are also Ryan.

  31. The Patriots have no defense. Look how many points it gave up to the Sea Hawls. Your wide receiver Walker will be disable when the Jets defense get finished with him. As for David Woodhead, the Jet’s defense will put a stop to him.

    J-E-T-S Jets Jets Jets

  32. I hate the Jets. I hate the Pats. I see no problem with this…in fact, it should be expected. And Rex does have a decent track record against the Pats to back this up. I hope the Jets bury the Patsies

    If this is a Pats fan writing a “typical Jets fan” post, then… touche! Nicely done.

    If this is an actual Jets fan, well… I don’t know what to say. Good luck stopping David Woodhead and Wes Walker on Sunday!

  34. Never before has a coach with so little to brag about spent so much time bragging. I hate the Patriots, but it would be very sweet to watch them put up 60 points against the NY Paper Airplanes.

  35. Oh patsfiend, When you say this: Your wide receiver Walker will be disable when the Jets defense get finished with him.

    I assume you mean Welker not Walker and disabled not disable.

    Did you not see the hits Welker took yesterday and kept getting up. I root for the Hawks of course but that patriot team has a bunch of tough, great football players and if I were Sanchez / Tebow I’d be very worried about one Vince Wilfork. he’s going to be pissed.

    Ohh you mean the same secondary that kicked the Jet’s Ass last year..twice! ok thanx for the advice. go get them BB lol

  37. The Jets are 3-3 should be 4-2, but didn’t use their “Wildcat” package cause they didn’t want to reveal it before this game. Now we’ll see the Tebow package at full force. If i’m smart enough to figure this out, so’s BB. I hope NE is ready for it!

  38. Rex would you please shut up. You beat a colts team that really just learning. In the mean time the last time you met a team that would qualify as being legitimate you were beaten badly. Just for once keep you mouth shut and let your team play. You haven’t heard the right to talk about what you’re going to do. That right belongs to the Giants

  39. Gee Rex thanks for clearing that up. if you hadn’t we would have expected that you were going to just have your guys kneel at the snap and just let them score. . . . . Now that we know you are not going to roll over we will expect a field goal from your team.

  40. Sorry about this Patriot fans. Our little brothers like to learn the hard way. They have some mouth.

    Sorry again.

    See you in Feb.,
    Big Blue

  41. Good God!!! Does this guy ever learn?? I feel like its the same line out of his fat mouth repeatedly when they are playing big time opponents.

    Dude, what until after the game to offer up bulletin board material!! OMG Shut up already

    I hope the blacklisting of Tebow for being an outspoken Christian ends this week!

    ————————————-

    I hope the evil in this world caused by mixing religion and government ends this week.

  43. I’m a life long Dolphins fan and I hate the Jets and love hating Rex Ryan, but I hope he stays around for ever. Great entertainment. If he was our coach I’d probably love him.

  44. His act is wearing thin quickly, but he has to keep his mouth going because in 10 more weeks he won’t be aNFL coach anymore.. High school coaches don’t talk trash.

  45. wrong. he’s a good coach, he just doesn’t know when to shut up.

    at least he isn’t full of it like Belichick

  46. “The Jets are 3-3 should be 4-2, but didn’t use their “Wildcat” package cause they didn’t want to reveal it before this game. Now we’ll see the Tebow package at full force. If i’m smart enough to figure this out, so’s BB. I hope NE is ready for it!”

    Wrong! They should be 2 – 4 as my Phins handed them a victory where we dominated them almost the whole game and missed field goals in both regulation and OT doomed us.

    But that being said…..why does this guys have to keep opening his mouth? I hope the Pats lay 50 on him and run for 200 yards.

  47. every coach has to think his team will beat the next one they play or its a senseless game., but that dont mean he has to say it to the media, ok , slow news day and the media ran with it. but, i do think they have a chance being that the patsies cant cheat as they got caught.
    i give big mouth and the jets a chance

  48. He’ll never learn. I hate the Patriots, but I dislike big mouthed Rex Ryan even less. I hope the Brady bunch hangs 60 on the blow hard and his crew.

  49. I’d really like it if fans would STOP saying “my team should be 4-1 instead of 1-4” bullcrap! Your team’s record is based on ACTUAL games won and lost. Their record is NOT based on imaginary “if only ___ had happened”
    The Jets beat the Colts and their rookie QB, yet Rex pretends like all his team’s problems are gone.
    Pssst…Rex. Guess what? The Patriots have this QB named Tom Brady…I hear he’s pretty good. Not sure if you’ve noticed, but now the Patriots have a legit run game to go along with Welker, Gronk, Hernandez, etc. The Pat’s defense only needs to be average…Sanchez will take care of the rest.
    I don’t like the Patriots, but I HATE the Jets.

    ———————————————————-
    You mean the “won 3 Super Bowls and been to 5 Super Bowls in 10 years” Bill Belichick…….

    THAT Bill Belichick?

    Tell me again what Rex Ryan has done?????

  51. JEEZ! How can the head of a professional football team have absolutely NO filter between his thoughts and his blurt-outs?!! He is TOTALLY devoid of the tiniest modicum of impulse control. If it pops into his head, it jumps out of his mouth…Good Lord!

  52. Rex is a PR guy, a self-promoter, like OchoCinco. He’ll get noticed, but this approach seldom is successful in the long run. I’m expecting an inspired performance from The Jets and a close game which, I hope, The Pats will take.
