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.
