Rex Ryan on 2014: “Watch out for the Jets, man”


Old Rex was a lot more fun.

Then again, New Rex is still OK.

The Jets head coach didn’t reprise his Super Bowl prediction or anything, but insisted Tuesday morning that his team shouldn’t be overlooked.

Watch out for the Jets, man,” Ryan said, via Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News. “I’m just telling you.”

That doesn’t mean Ryan doesn’t have high hopes, after owner Woody Johnson said “patience” is no longer part of the conversation.

“My expectations have never changed: I want to win and I expect to win,” Ryan said. “I’ll say this: It’s time to deliver. It’s time to deliver for this community, for New York, for this entire area. We got to step up and deliver. I’m not running from it. Let’s put it that way. I expect a lot out of this football team.

“Nobody’s really talking about us and that’s fine and dandy. They’re going to.”

There’s no doubt about that, as the Jets always manage to make themselves a spectacle. Whether Ryan can make them a playoff team for the first time since 2010 will be another story.

    cool story

  2. ialwayswantedtobeabanker says: Mar 25, 2014 1:00 PM

    This, from the same guy, who dubbed Mark Sanchez as “the Sanchise.”

    This from the same guy so confident that his wife has a permanent tattoo of the Sanchise on her person.

    This from the same guy who regularly promised Super Bowl victories out of the Jets in seasons past.

    Yeah, sure.

    rex ryan will retire a raven

    i guarantee he couldnt give a flip about the new york jets

  4. charmcitychampions says: Mar 25, 2014 1:02 PM

    Media killed old Rex, complains about how they miss Old Rex.

  5. thealmightybigblue says: Mar 25, 2014 1:02 PM

    They should move the jets to Comedy Central for next season and beyond.

  6. thestrategyexpert says: Mar 25, 2014 1:03 PM

    Ok I’m watching, bring it.

  7. patssox says: Mar 25, 2014 1:04 PM

    Oy vey.

  8. kneelbeforesod says: Mar 25, 2014 1:05 PM

    That’s heavy, dude.

  9. weepingjebus says: Mar 25, 2014 1:05 PM

    Pick Sanchez back up as a free agent on a new contract, that’ll get folks talking again. Please, Rex, I’m begging here.

  10. bobby927 says: Mar 25, 2014 1:06 PM

    When Rex “Nostradamus” Ryan speaks, listen.

  11. bucrightoff says: Mar 25, 2014 1:07 PM

    I will be. I got week 8 on the over/under Mike Vick being hurt pool, and week 11 before Geno has ten turnovers replacing him.

  12. azarkhan says: Mar 25, 2014 1:07 PM

    “Nobody’s really talking about us and that’s fine and dandy. They’re going to.”

    Now that you’ve opened your fat mouth with another silly prediction, I’m sure they will.

  13. patriottony says: Mar 25, 2014 1:09 PM

    DO YOU REALLLLLY want to know what is so bad about this bozo and this team,,,LACK of COURTESY, and Professionalism,,,,,,the HEAD guy on down sound like 12 year olds on the playground,,,talking the “dozens”. When have you every heard BB or any of his peers say…YOU BETTER WATCH OUT FOR THE PATS,,,Nooooo they extend the prof courtesy to their opponents and give them their profs.
    IT’s called “BRAGGING” and BOASTING,,,,without the ability to back it up. It is childish, immature and plain distasteful.

  14. fordmandalay says: Mar 25, 2014 1:13 PM

    I can honestly see them going 10-6, maybe 11-5 this year.

  15. patriotsarespygaters says: Mar 25, 2014 1:13 PM

    The circus is coming to town…talk on the field next season or ur out enough of this braggadocious stuff

  16. thejuddstir says: Mar 25, 2014 1:13 PM

    You gotta say this about Rexy, it certainly doesn’t bother him to continually make an azz out of himself with his silly predictions.

  17. strokinmyego says: Mar 25, 2014 1:16 PM

    The Jets haven’t won anything since the moon landing. Just let that sink in for a minute.

  18. patriotinvasion says: Mar 25, 2014 1:16 PM

    AKA – “Watch out for an awkward QB controversy in August, followed by Vick getting hurt Week 5, followed by Geno coming in and mixing in a few flashes of being good with a plethora of picks, all culminating in an 8-8 season.”

    Yea, watch out for the Jets.


  19. grimreaper12 says: Mar 25, 2014 1:19 PM

    Nobody talks about the Jets? ESPN always talks about the Jets. They already have last place in the AFC East locked up.


  20. nomoreliesfortoday says: Mar 25, 2014 1:20 PM

    Its funny to me when the media claims the Jets always make themselves a spectacle….REALLY?

    Who is making it a spectacle?

  21. 6ball says: Mar 25, 2014 1:20 PM

    Any PSL’s still available?

  22. troybrownes says: Mar 25, 2014 1:22 PM

    Watch out AFC east teams we’ll beat the bottom of the division again while your all stepping over us!

  23. troybrownes says: Mar 25, 2014 1:23 PM

    Watch out AFC east teams we’ll be at the bottom of the division again while your all stepping over us!

  24. kpatrick51 says: Mar 25, 2014 1:26 PM

    Well this was informative.

  25. chip56 says: Mar 25, 2014 1:26 PM

    Uh Rex, New York doesn’t need the Jets to deliver. That’s what the Giants are for.

  26. packman15 says: Mar 25, 2014 1:27 PM

    Opening your big mouth in the past has not served you well Rex! Keep a lid on it until you have actually accomplished something.

  27. davebarnes21 says: Mar 25, 2014 1:28 PM

    No one is asking: WHAT IS REX RYAN GOING TO DO WITH THE TATTOO OF MARK SANCHEZ NOW??????????????????

  28. micknangold says: Mar 25, 2014 1:29 PM

    I suppose he’s going to be bashed for saying he expects his team to play well. What a whacky guy that Rex is, demanding and expecting a high level of performance from the team he’s paid to coach!

    I’d rather he not say anything, if only to avoid the media blowing it out of proportion, but what is he supposed to say? “Oh yeah, we’ll probably be somewhere around 6-10 or 808 and and I’ll be fired. Nothing to see here, no further questions please!”

  29. jimmyt says: Mar 25, 2014 1:31 PM

    May your ship sink fast with Mike Vick on board. You get what you deserve.

  30. mogogo1 says: Mar 25, 2014 1:34 PM

    “Watch out for” in the same way you’d steer clear of somebody who has the plague.

  31. 69finfan says: Mar 25, 2014 1:34 PM

    That is the equivalent of saying “watch out for the Cubs man” (and I’m a Cubs fan).

  32. j0esixpack says: Mar 25, 2014 1:35 PM

    This is right up there with “I guarantee Mark Sanchez will lead the Jets to a Super Bowl”

    and… “As long as I’m here, Mark Sanchez will be the QB of the NYJ”

    You think his players, let alone NY fans, believe him anymore?

    Enjoy the tattoo removal surgery Wrecks!

  33. hehateme2 says: Mar 25, 2014 1:36 PM

    Good for the weight loss though.
    Remember 1969!

  34. jlgsoccer says: Mar 25, 2014 1:37 PM

    doesn’t he say every year..”yeah i know last year i said we were going to win the sb…but this year kid is it!”

  35. gohometrolls says: Mar 25, 2014 1:37 PM

    Well he’s not exaggerating their roster by the time the season starts will be pretty good Super Bowl good No! But a good one I just wish he would stay quiet and let this team fly under the radar so we can sneak up on all the haters who love to comment on the Jets and listen to you all slink back under your bridges caves and holes.

  36. j0esixpack says: Mar 25, 2014 1:37 PM

    Watch out Houston Oilers… the Jets think they can break the tie with you for AFC East titles!!!

  37. steelcurtainn says: Mar 25, 2014 1:38 PM

    LOL. Rex Ryan should be a comedian not a football coach.

  38. dfwhawkguy says: Mar 25, 2014 1:42 PM

    Why not talk it up? Nothing to lose at this point. Win and he’s right. Lose and he’s fired.

  39. dcapettini says: Mar 25, 2014 1:44 PM

    “Watch out for the Jets!” They have a loose cannon on the sidelines.

  40. finsblood13 says: Mar 25, 2014 1:45 PM

    2014 AFC East champs your Miami Dolphins

  41. beachsidejames says: Mar 25, 2014 1:45 PM

    Jets record is 5-11 this coming season. If you don’t agree write back with who they beat. Dates are not set but teams they play are.

  42. nofaceangler718 says: Mar 25, 2014 1:47 PM

    now that Vick is on the team i will watch out for them…to make sure I NEVER watch or root for them
    -jets fan of 30 years

  43. intelligent cement says: Mar 25, 2014 1:47 PM

    ESPN only talks about the Jets?!??
    -and this from a Patriots fan??

    Are you serious?

  44. taintedsaints2009 says: Mar 25, 2014 1:47 PM

    did he really just say ‘nobody is talking about the jets?’

    i wish that were the case. there is nothing interesting about the jets. but all you hear about is the jets.

  45. jchipwood says: Mar 25, 2014 1:48 PM

    Most honest teams in the AFC east get bashed on this site. The team that cheats gets more praise than any team on this site.

  46. tformation says: Mar 25, 2014 1:53 PM

    All this and the site STILL hasn’t mentioned Sanchez signing with the Eagles…

  47. realnflmaster says: Mar 25, 2014 1:55 PM

    8-8 last year, you idiots don’t remember? 11 wins MINIMUM this year. PUNKS.


  48. jackybadass says: Mar 25, 2014 1:56 PM

    This idiot loves to hear himself talk 8-8 forever!

  49. riverhorsey says: Mar 25, 2014 2:00 PM

    All teams get bashed on this site but the Jets just keep putting their foot in their mouth. (pun intended)

  50. ravenswhat says: Mar 25, 2014 2:04 PM

    I truly believe Woody is scared of Rex. Rex is the greatest salesmen ever.

  51. getyourownname says: Mar 25, 2014 2:05 PM

    I’ll give him this, he’s looking a helluva lot better after that weight loss.

  52. skolisstupid says: Mar 25, 2014 2:08 PM

    Rex isn’t better then coach Z. Minnesota. Skol.

  53. lanman11 says: Mar 25, 2014 2:08 PM

    If the media turned Bill Belichick into the media darling they want him to be, they’d complain about that too. Whatever grabs the eyeballs…..and we all know sucking toes, butt fumbles, tattooing players on your body, bringing in Brett Favre/Tim Tebow/Mike Vick, and making outrageous predictions grabs eyeballs.

  54. jackburtonsmullet says: Mar 25, 2014 2:09 PM

    Nobody wants to watch the Jets, not even their fans.

  55. lukedunphysscienceproject says: Mar 25, 2014 2:11 PM

    Nobody is really talking about them?


    Has this man ever read a newspaper or gone on a website in his life? No mediocre to bad team has ever gotten as much press as this team.

    We talk about them every day.

  56. primalscreaming says: Mar 25, 2014 2:17 PM

    Yeah, their new QB is scary – to innocent dogs.

  57. barneyrumble says: Mar 25, 2014 2:18 PM

    How can the Jets not trade up and take Clowney? I mean they have the car, and the tent, and the circus, it is a natural fit in name alone!!

  58. nygmann says: Mar 25, 2014 2:23 PM

    So does this mean I can’t say “Same ‘ol Jets” now? No? Too soon…lol. Ah, what the hell…. “Same — ‘ol— Jets”! Ah-ah-ah! 🙂

  59. jetsnut4life says: Mar 25, 2014 2:25 PM

    I love the Rex attitude. Jets will be standing in your path……..We will give you our best shot…..We will get yours….May the best team win. Since Rex came into the NFL he has always been apart of teams that are all heart and tough as heck to play against….. Rex believes in his players…..His passion is contagious…8-8 last year with one of the least talented rosters.

    Say what you want. I’m a Jets fan. I’m glad Rex is our coach. From the reaction in the locker room last season, so are the players…

  60. thebirdsareback says: Mar 25, 2014 2:29 PM

    Poor Rex, when he left Baltimore, he was at the top of his game. We still love him here in Charm City, but this guy has ran this team into the ground, and now hes flat out lying to you poor people and that just isnt right! I mean over paying a number 3 wideout number 1 wideout money is one thing, But thinking you’re going to be any more then a 7-9 team with vick @ qb is bonkers. This team has literally NO talent. Decker is hardly an upgrade, as he has no one to throw him the ball. Its not right to give all these new yorkers false hope like their yankees are doing. Its just not right.

  61. ryann252013 says: Mar 25, 2014 2:29 PM

    Rex Ryan wants to coach and have his players perform with him at a high level?!


  62. colv says: Mar 25, 2014 2:33 PM

    Really Rex, no hope to compete for the division, no hope unless Brady gets hurt. Rex has kept his mouth shut making one to believe he learned his lessons the hard way.

  63. metitometin says: Mar 25, 2014 2:47 PM

    Haven’t we seen this story before? It always end in a 7-9 record and a complete implosion which I’m loving as a Pats fan.

  64. ampats says: Mar 25, 2014 2:56 PM

    Rex loves putting his foot in his mouth !

  65. trezzyt says: Mar 25, 2014 3:22 PM

    Rex Ryan is a great motivator but he needs to be a defensive CO on a offensive team to win the big one. He’s just not a HC great with D but not to smart with anything else other then running and that’s hasn’t been great recently. Plus the front office is not helping him either Rex is a great D mind and he should do just that with a team like NE GB or
    Phi. His brother did it with No he can do the same. Rob will have a ring soon and if Rex follow the same way he will to. Great O Needs Great D.

  66. zeke2517 says: Mar 25, 2014 3:26 PM

    “this guy has ran this team into the ground”

    “This team has literally NO talent. ”

    You are aware that the GM is the one who gets the talent, right?

  67. jaygruntboston says: Mar 25, 2014 3:33 PM

    should have been fired already. pathetic excuse for a coach. more talk than walk. J.just E.end T.the S.season!!!

  68. jetsjetsjetsnow says: Mar 25, 2014 4:01 PM

    You Go Rex!!

  69. rcali says: Mar 25, 2014 4:04 PM

    We really have to appreciate Rex. He talks to the media, doesn’t treat people like crap, and has a reputation as a hard working & honest coach. You really want a league of head coaches like Belicheat? The only thing Belicheat gives you is dishonest injury reports….after he talks down to you.

  70. bleedrangerblue says: Mar 25, 2014 4:43 PM

    At this point in my jet career As a fan (39 yrs) I need to see it not hear it. You have to show me. Please close your mouth. This Vick thing pisses me off !

  71. chiadam says: Mar 25, 2014 4:56 PM

    I assume he was telling Toledo and Arkansas Pine Bluff to watch out for the Jets.

  72. somethinghappeninghere says: Mar 25, 2014 5:10 PM

    Well, Rexy, you did it again…in 2013 when nobody had the Jets going higher than 4-12 or 5-11, the Jets came together toward the end when they were 5-8 and won last three games, in other words exceeding expectations and finishing second. So now that Rexy and the media is saying the Jets are possibly a playoff team thanks to Decker and Vick (never mind they lost Cromartie and were played by Revis) and that wonderful young D-Line or something like that does it mean the Jets will, as usual, blow it? Revis knows the Jets and as a Patriot now he will be able to handle anything Jets give him as motivation. Bills offense will get better and with Wilson passing on now they are motivated. Bullygate is behind Miami and now with Albert Tannehill has time to throw. I mean, really, have the Jets improved to where Rexy can say they are a contender? I doubt it!

  73. realnflmaster says: Mar 25, 2014 6:30 PM

    Pats & BB don’t “BRAG” and “BOAST” like Rex —– they just CHEAT!

  75. RE LEE says: Mar 26, 2014 4:33 AM

    Watch out for the jets, man…. Ooooo can’t wait for the next circus act!

  76. bigbluelou says: Mar 26, 2014 1:47 PM

    “Watch out for Micheal Vick getting injured by week 3, man”

  77. bigbluelou says: Mar 26, 2014 1:56 PM

    You think this guy is a blowhard now, just imagine how he would be if he ever won a Super Bowl. He’d think he’s better than Vince Lombardy.
