Rex: I’m not saying I’m the best of all time, but I’m a great coach


Three straight seasons out of the playoffs has done nothing to diminish Jets coach Rex Ryan’s confidence.

Ryan continues to believe that he’s a great coach — and in his view, that’s not just a belief but a statement of fact.

“Do I think that I’m a great coach? I absolutely know I’m a great coach,” Ryan told Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News. “But it’s not just about me. What makes a great coach is the people that surround you, the people that are with you every day. There’s guys that help me be a great coach. My players help me be a great coach.”

Ryan clarified that he’s not claiming he’s Vince Lombardi.

“I’m not saying that I’m the best or whatever . . . or the best of all time,” Ryan said. “I just know that I’m the best that I can be. I know that I’m willing to do the work. I may have limitations. I get that. But nobody’s going to convince me that they’re more passionate about their job than I am . . . and that they’re more passionate about their organization than me.”

Now this great coach needs his team to play like a great team — or at least a good team. If the Jets miss the playoffs for the fourth straight year, Ryan is going to be a great coach without a job.

    “If the Jets miss the playoffs for the fourth straight year, Ryan is going to be a great coach without a job.”

    Or he’s going to be a coach without a great job.

  5. wwwmattcom says: Jul 20, 2014 7:15 AM

    This guy reminds me of Chris Christie, loud, obnoxious, fat and always making a case that he is the best and trying to sound disgustingly humble, yet doesn’t work well with others.

    OMG!!! Please make it stop.

  7. ivydude81 says: Jul 20, 2014 7:18 AM

    Rex is definitely not the best coach in the NFL but getting to back to back AFC title games with Mark Sanchez as your QB is pretty impressive in a quarterback driven league.

  8. championshipcentral says: Jul 20, 2014 7:20 AM

    If by great you mean terrible than I agree

  9. brownsmakemecrazy says: Jul 20, 2014 7:26 AM

    He is one of the most entertaining coaches.

  10. jamarcusgabbert says: Jul 20, 2014 7:26 AM

    Taking Mark Sanchez to the AFC Championship two years in a row technically counts for a Superbowl or two.

  11. paardenoog says: Jul 20, 2014 7:29 AM

    So this coming super bowl is an easy shoe-in for Rex and Gino. Because they live in NY, the wonderland and center of the universe

  12. natelan says: Jul 20, 2014 7:31 AM

    Might be the best competitive eater in NFL history, though.

  13. uglydingo says: Jul 20, 2014 7:33 AM

    Good to see that Rex is putting on a brave face with the loss of Mark Sanchez. He is a completely delusional egomaniac. Maybe he should get into politics.

  14. bullcharger says: Jul 20, 2014 7:36 AM

    Shouldn’t a great coach know something about offense?

  15. bostonbadass says: Jul 20, 2014 7:36 AM

    Im a patriots fan & I can say Rex is a great coach just needs to leave the offence to someone but himself…

    We all know that Rex’s Defence is always a pain in the ass to deal with !! Gotta give that to the man…

  16. RexCanCoach says: Jul 20, 2014 7:36 AM

    His players all will run thru a wall for him. His defense is a stud group. If only Rex could coach Geno into a decent QB…

  17. clownsfan says: Jul 20, 2014 7:39 AM

    So tired of this bafoon.

  18. SeenThisB4 says: Jul 20, 2014 7:39 AM

    Didn’t he recently have a QB that was extremely passionate about his ability? Passion has very little to do with being great.

  19. 6ball says: Jul 20, 2014 7:40 AM

    How Rex managed to win 8 NFL games with the Jets expansion-like roster last year is a mystery to me.

  20. ballsoharduniversity52 says: Jul 20, 2014 7:46 AM

    He talks too much for sure but he is very good. What he’s done with the rosters he’s had; have to tip your hat. Couple of NFC Champ games; And that squad last year was abysmal so to go 8-8 he has done a great job.

  21. irishgary says: Jul 20, 2014 7:49 AM

    Win SOMETHING first Rex

  22. wiskybuck says: Jul 20, 2014 7:53 AM

    I think he’s confused on the definition of a “great coach”.

  23. kepickle says: Jul 20, 2014 7:56 AM

    don’t say it prove it

  24. tvjules says: Jul 20, 2014 7:58 AM

    Here he goes again…

  25. chiadam says: Jul 20, 2014 7:58 AM

    Oh, Rex. No.

  26. bobnelsonjr says: Jul 20, 2014 8:01 AM

    Good coaches win their division.
    Great coaches win Super Bowls.
    Bad coaches are out of touch with reality.

  27. packerman1968 says: Jul 20, 2014 8:02 AM

    He is the best, the best at talking about himself.

  28. j0esixpack says: Jul 20, 2014 8:02 AM

    It’s pretty simple. If you have to assert you are a great coach – you aren’t.

  29. randomguy9999 says: Jul 20, 2014 8:02 AM

    Rex is delusional …. he also guaranteed a Superbowl win a couple of times in preseason or something like that and said that Sanchez would never get canned as long as he was there

    I don’t get how an NFL owner can seriously employ a guy like Rex…. the Jets have been a non-stop circus ever since he got there … Rex isn’t qualified for a job at the register at McDonald’s….

    Confidence is good. He just shouldn’t brag about it.

  34. theflyingelvis says: Jul 20, 2014 8:11 AM

    Unbelievable. This guy just never learns. I’m a Pats fan and I can’t imagine Belichick ever in a million years saying crap like this. And to make matters worse, Rex hasn’t won a damn thing yet.

  35. thepftpoethasneverkissedagirl says: Jul 20, 2014 8:11 AM

    I’d get this guy drug tested …

  39. oaklegend says: Jul 20, 2014 8:19 AM

    And he’ll be a great floor associate at Foot Locker when he’s out of the league in a couple of years.

  40. whatjusthapped says: Jul 20, 2014 8:21 AM

    The only department that Rex is the greatest at is running his mouth.

  41. ketch20too says: Jul 20, 2014 8:25 AM

    Your record says otherwise

  42. ampats says: Jul 20, 2014 8:28 AM

    Must be all the Lombardi trophies he believes he will win every August.

  43. focushawk72 says: Jul 20, 2014 8:30 AM

    If Rex had a top 10 QB the Jets would be a contender every year. Last year they somehow finished 8-8 with the 4th worst rookie QB EVER! Most other coaches would have finished 3-13 at best. Not a Jets fan, but a big fan of Rex.

  44. culturecesspool says: Jul 20, 2014 8:32 AM

    Worked your way from a line coach to coordinator in Baltimore, yet they wouldn’t give you the keys to the car….

  45. nosleeptilsb says: Jul 20, 2014 8:35 AM

    Im not saying Im the best, but that was a great bottle of Tequila I just downed.

  46. afce22 says: Jul 20, 2014 8:37 AM

    First off it sounds like he was responding to a question, and then he gave a lot of people credit, so a little misleading as always

    Rex has never lacked for confidence which is a good thing. He can’t shut his mouth which isn’t a good thing

    End of day he’s a great DC, and a pretty good HC….two AFCCG with Sanchez as your QB is pretty damn good. Parcells, Belichick, Harbaughs, etc wouldn’t have done any better

  47. keiselsbeard says: Jul 20, 2014 8:38 AM

    Thank You, Rex. I needed a good laugh in the worst way today. Your self-proclaimed greatness, subsequently followed by complete failure, never fails yo give me a good, hearty belly-laugh. Keep em comin, Big Guy!

  48. desertrace21 says: Jul 20, 2014 8:38 AM

    At some point, when this idiot is finally fired, nobody else will hire him. Right? Just as bad as growing up in Phoenix and seeing all of the Cardinals “Buddy Ball” billboards in town. What is that they say about the apple? Rob is overrated too. His defenses are outside the top 15 all but maybe once or twice in his career. These two just need to go away.

  49. themiamidolphins says: Jul 20, 2014 8:39 AM

    The obnoxiousness aside, Rex Ryan certainly is a great coach.

    How many coaches in the league would get that terrible team to 8 wins last season? Beats Manning and Brady on the road in the playoffs with Sanchez. Top 5 defense every year.

  61. shootscuz says: Jul 20, 2014 9:02 AM

    I am a Broncos fan and I agree that Rex is a great coach. His biggest weakness isn’t the X and O’s or motivating his players, it’s his mouth. Rex give the media less to work with! Jeez!

  67. basexc9 says: Jul 20, 2014 9:13 AM

    If you have to keep telling yourself you’re a great coach, there’s something wrong.

  68. straydogg7571 says: Jul 20, 2014 9:17 AM

    He had potential maybe five or so years ago of jumping into the good column, but great….? Even back when the jets had a decent shot at making a run, he mismanaged that team, thought he was one of the players, and got out coached time and time again.
    He’s about ready to be forced into a sweet gig with his brother as co-defensive coach’s of whatever team wants that set of boobs!
    I’m obviously NOT a Rob or Rex fan 🙂 but nonetheless, Rex has gotta be on thin ice heading into 2014, unless he has some scathing images of the jets owner…

    for my Redskins to hire him as DC

  76. scoobies05 says: Jul 20, 2014 9:34 AM

    as a ravens fan I can tell you that rex is a defensive genius and an amazing coordinator. when billick was fired I prayed that Ozzie and Steve didn’t promote him for reasons like this. he is just too far over the top and he thinks he is the star.

    Rex will be in the “Recycle – A – Coach” program immediately after the 2014 season is completed.

    He will pop up in some also-ran city like Cleveland or Oakland mostly because nobody else wants the job.

  80. dickshotdogs says: Jul 20, 2014 9:43 AM

    Hey Rex, there’s an old saying. “Never miss an opportunity to say nothing.”

  81. dallascowboysdishingthereal says: Jul 20, 2014 9:47 AM

    The Ryans think an awful lot of themselves. Let me know how many super bowls they have ever won collectively?

  82. nyneal says: Jul 20, 2014 9:49 AM

    Ryan is the apple that fell close to the tree. He’s a loud-mouthed braggart, just like his old man. His old man proved to be a good DC, but lousy HC. Ryan will end up with the same reputation.
    If Ryan ever did win a Super Bowl, he’d make Cassius Clay’s rant in the ring after Sonny Liston quit in his corner in their first fixed fight look like a hiccup.
    Clay ran around the ring screaming, “I am the greatest!” If Ryan ever won, I could see him doing something like that.
    At least Clay/Ali was a great fighter and proved it many times.
    Rex — please, stop blowing your own horn. Because when you fall flat on your face as you’ve done so many times already, it just gives Jets fans more heartaches.

  83. jvillenole says: Jul 20, 2014 9:52 AM

    John Madden – 763 W/L with Oakland
    Tom Landry – 607 with Dallas but over 29 years

    Sorry Rex not even close

  86. cpitch12 says: Jul 20, 2014 10:10 AM

    He will never learn …..which is extremely beneficial to my Patriots………keep talking Rex !!!

  87. shoeflypie says: Jul 20, 2014 10:10 AM

    Quite a few on here seem to be saying, “Look how well he has done with less than stellar players/teams. It is my understanding that head coaches have significant input into the drafting of new players and selecting free agents. That means part of the assessment of the coach would include looking at the team’s ability and make up. So when a person says Rex is a great coach stuck with a poor team, they aren’t looking at the full picture.

    Because the team reflects the coach’s ability to select players, I would put him in the upper middle class overall. He gets good effort from those he selects, he just doesn’t select really high quality players.

  88. 1rockyracoon says: Jul 20, 2014 10:13 AM

    He should have continued by saying, ” I know I’m not the greatest coach in the AFC or even the AFC East. In fact, I know I’m not the best coach in New York City.”

    Who drafted Geno Smith?

    Who is sticking with Geno Smith?

    If Jets make the playoffs Rex Ryan is a GREAT coach. If not he is the idiot who drafted Geno Smith and the idiot who stuck with him.

  96. ingreenmts says: Jul 20, 2014 10:34 AM

    Simple questions.. Is a great coach only one who gets to the Super Bowl? Obviously winning matters, but could a great coach be one who takes a predicted last place team and gets to .500? Have any of the “great” coaches had a qb like sanchez or smith and gotten as much out of the team? Wouldn’t it be easier to win games with a Brady or Manning versus a Sanchez? And didn’t Rex beat both Brady and Manning with Sanchez? Just wondering who had to work harder to win….. Rex has a big mouth, but he has gotten more out of marginal players than most coaches.

  97. tory707 says: Jul 20, 2014 10:39 AM

    I’m a coach Ryan fan, but, keep your mouth shut! The mouth that roared. I was hoping he’d get fired from Jets and hook on to another small town team where he can’t shout from the mt tops.

  101. alchemistcirca1979 says: Jul 20, 2014 11:08 AM

    He is a great coach. He is one of 32 coaches to coach football at the highest level and he’s had moderate success.

    Coaching is teaching. I think he may have trouble with the managing part that goes along with being an HC in the NFL.

    and he still a better coach than the person who wrote this article and all the people commenting on it. So at least he has that.

  102. coltzfan166 says: Jul 20, 2014 11:10 AM

    I love Rex. Yes I just went there.

  103. maurysline says: Jul 20, 2014 11:17 AM

    Rex needs to lose a job in order to learn how to tone it down. Up until now he hasn’t been fired and have to look for work. He is a classic case of a pretty good coach who is going to blow his first chance and most likely do well somewhere else. Happens all the time. Now he should go get a god damn snack.

  104. patsfan112 says: Jul 20, 2014 11:24 AM

    And this folks, is why the Patriots are the class of the NFL. They never brag or boast about how good they are before the season begins (never mind the fact that they are actually the best in the league).

  105. ccc23454 says: Jul 20, 2014 11:27 AM

    when he gets fired this year maybe the best GM in league (jerry jones) will hire him. that would be awesome the best coach and GM ever together, they would dominate…lol

  106. bradhammond says: Jul 20, 2014 11:31 AM

    He’s great at picking Defensive players and having them blossom into stars – his defenses always play well. Offense? Questionable player selections, very little evidence of players learning and improving – no matter who Rex has as OC, the offense is lackluster at best. A great DC, but not so great as a head coach.

  109. peepeetoucher says: Jul 20, 2014 11:43 AM

    He still has a winning record as a head coach and is ranked 13th in playoff wins among active head coaches in the NFL. So he’s better than more than half of your teams you trolls root for head coaches, so to call him a bad coach makes your teams coach even worse. He also did that without a franchise QB. The 12 coaches above him all have one except Fisher. Don’t let your perception or hatred of Rex cloud your judgement of what kind of coach he is cuz facts show he can coach.

  110. nite2al says: Jul 20, 2014 11:50 AM

    Well, realistically, he may have been one great QB away from winning 3 SBs…seriously, Mark Sanchez?

  111. footballfundamentals says: Jul 20, 2014 11:56 AM

    Probably Would Have 1 Or 2 Rings If They Had A Very Good To Excellent Qb….Not A Game Manager…Just sayin

  112. kgun80 says: Jul 20, 2014 12:09 PM

    He is a great Defensive coach. That’s true. But don’t run your mouth so much. It’s not even about bulletin board material. If your a professional you don’t need extra motivation to be the best and to compete hard.
    He just needs to shut his mouth if he wins a Bowl as a head coach then fine let him run his mouth.. Until then shut up Rex!

  113. sonofad says: Jul 20, 2014 12:29 PM

    Hubris–what the Ryan family will be remembered for, not coaching greatness. Buddy had brilliant players. Great coaches? Not if Landry, Noll, Shula, Lombardi, Belicheck, Vermeil, and dozens of others are what define greatness. Blowhardy is just that.

    Rex is one of the better coaches in the league. The only thing that hurts him is the sideshow. Maybe he thinks it helps him get the job done, but he’s never gotten the job done actually.

    Lifetime 42-38, 22-26 over the last 3 years and hasn’t made the playoffs since 2010

    By what definition is this “great”

    Rex doesn’t always drink beer, but when he does…it goes straight to his head LOL

  122. micknangold says: Jul 20, 2014 1:52 PM

    Give him a legitimate starting QB and see what happens. Rex is one of the 10 best coaches in the NFL as it stands now.

  123. micknangold says: Jul 20, 2014 1:52 PM

    LOL that he inherited Mangini’s team. Mangini didn’t put that team together.

    Well Jets fans, there goes your season… you’re batting .1000 in losing years after an absurd headline.

  125. brohamma says: Jul 20, 2014 1:56 PM

    Rex is lighting the dumpster fire that is the Jets, early this year.

    Great coaches win.

    Rex, you may be a nice guy, but you are nowhere near a great coach.

  127. voyager6 says: Jul 20, 2014 2:39 PM

    Sounds like a candidate for the 2014 Muhammad Ali “I am the greatest!” Award. Hope Rex can back it up… Ali did.

    Who says drug use when young doesn’t lead to brain damage when older?

    Like players I feel only the elite coaches get to the Pro level. So yeah, Rex is a very good coach or he would not be coaching at the NFL. But some coaches have no idea what type of players fit the system they have. Some are still very quality coaches at the NFL level. Norv Turner simple the best offensive coordinator in football. He nows how to max/min pieces of an offensive better than anybody. However he has no fin idea how to fill out a 53 man roster. As a strickly defensive coach Rex Ryan may be better than Bellichek, however he does not understand the other aspects of the game as well as Bellichek nor does he know how to fill out a 53 man roster. But I do feel he is a great defensive coordinator, but a mediocre head coach.

    I tried blowing my own horn once when I was 14, but I threw my back out.

  131. freddsox says: Jul 20, 2014 7:25 PM

    He’s kinda letting that 11th place ribbon give him a big head

  132. bobnelsonjr says: Jul 20, 2014 7:45 PM

    Minnesota vikings of coaches.

    Bragging about self thought importance but never winning anything. Can’t even do the first step – win the division.

    Makes you wonder if this coach or the vikings ever watch game video other than their “highlights.”

  133. seahawksbmx says: Jul 20, 2014 10:00 PM

    Rex, I’malet you finish…you’re a great coach, but Beyoncé is the greatest coach of all TIME.

  134. nyjetblue says: Jul 20, 2014 11:17 PM

    Nobody, absolutely nobody gets the amount of comments on PFT than Rex. From a sports marketing and entertainment perspective the man is pure money.

  136. jonnguy2014 says: Jul 22, 2014 7:14 PM

    Well it does take great coaching to take a Mark Sanchez led team to the AFCC twice

  137. don444 says: Jul 25, 2014 5:37 AM

    lol Whatever, buffoon. Rex Ryan isn’t awful, but he’s obviously far short of great.

  138. texansdude says: Jul 25, 2014 10:33 AM

    Great coach? Well, sure, when you’ve watched that many Super Bowls on tv, you’ve got to pick up a trick or two!
