Rex Ryan after disastrous preseason: This will be my best Jets team

The Jets just completed a disastrous preseason where they went 0-4 and were outscored 88-31, but that’s not keeping Rex Ryan down. The Jets coach remains as confident as ever in his team.

“When it’s all said and done, I think this will be the best team I’ve had since I’ve been here,” Ryan said, according to Newsday’s Bob Glauber. “That’s how I feel about it.”

Ryan has coached the Jets for three seasons. His teams have gone 9-7, 11-5, and 8-8, and they reached the AFC Championship Game twice. If these Jets are better than his previous teams, that implies they are a Super Bowl-quality team.

Ryan emphasized to Newsday how close the team is, and he thinks they’ll build on that. Pro Bowl cornerback Darrelle Revis sees a confident team, and he has no reason to worry about the team’s preseason struggles.

“It’s preseason,” Revis said. “We don’t have a lot going on game plan-wise. The games don’t mean anything.”

While it’s true that preseason games don’t count and that teams hold back, struggling to score points as much as the Jets have is never a good sign. Call me a skeptic, but I don’t think they’ll just be able to just turn it on in the regular season. The defense is going to have to average shutouts for them to win.

    Most of Ryan’s weight loss came from brain matter. If this is his best team hope he doesn’t put it on his resume for his next job
