Wait, did Rex Ryan say the Jets would win the Super Bowl in 2011? What he really meant was 2012. Yeah, that’s it — next year is their year. Rex promises. Maybe the foot fetish scandal was more of a distraction than we think, because there is absolutely no doubt in Ryan’s mind his team is going all the way next season and I’m sure Bart Scott “cant wait!”
Rex told Pro Football Talk via the NY Post that “there’s no way [the Jets] don’t get it done next year.” He then followed with “next year I know we’ll win it,” while sitting courtside to watch the Lakers beat the Knicks at MSG on Friday night.
Yawn. I know Jets fans love this guy’s straight-shooting attitude and have grown to trust him, but when do they tire of hearing the same thing over and over again. By guaranteeing a Super Bowl victory, Ryan puts himself in a position to say “I knew this team had it in them the whole time.” Why not just go out and do it without all the buildup?
If I wake up every morning and say there’s going to be a downpour today, I’m bound to be right at some point. It doesn’t take a weatherman to predict a rainstorm, but it doesn’t take us long to get sick of one who can’t get it right. What Rex Ryan has done a tremendous job of over the past two-plus years is proving that talk truly is cheap.Google+
