Jets head coach Rex Ryan is never lacking for confidence, but right now he is lacking for wins.

With his team coming off their fifth straight loss and preparing to be without CB Dee Milliner and guard Brian Winters for the rest of the season, New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan called the scheduling of this Thursday’s trip to New England “probably not ideal.” The Jets have a game to play and Ryan said his message this week would be that there’s still life in the team.
“The message is pretty simple,” Ryan said, via NJ.com. “Hey, we might be counted out. We’re not dead. We’re going to fight our tails off. It’s a resilient bunch. As I told our team, a team that doesn’t quit is hard to beat. If you’re fighting a guy that never quits, he’s hard to beat. Our guys, we ain’t quitting. As we say, we’ve just begun to fight.”
The Jets have lost 5 in a row – their longest losing streak since 2007 – that year the team went 4-12.
