New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan has toned down the brashness for the last couple of years, but he said that he is confident his team will make the playoffs.
New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan has become well-known for his brash demeanor and trash talking, and he used to guarantee that his team would win the Super Bowl. He has backed off in the last couple of years, but he still made a bold prediction for his team.
Ryan believes that the Jets will make the playoffs this season after they missed them for the last three seasons. “I’m just telling you that I believe this team is on the cusp of doing some special things. I am confident that we will be a playoff team,” the outspoken coach told the NY Daily News.
It will be nearly impossible for the Jets to win the AFC East since the New England Patriots are showing no signs of slowing down, but they made free-agent additions in an effort to bolster the offense.
Running back Chris Johnson and wide receiver Eric Decker will give quarterback Geno Smith weapons that he lacked last season, but recently added Michael Vick may supplant Smith as the starter.
The Jets’ playoff outlook is looking bleak at the moment, but they will look to take advantage of a weak AFC.
