When asked Wednesday how it felt to be labeled as the biggest long shot of the 12 playoff teams, Jets Coach Rex Ryan replied: “I wasn’t aware of that. To me, we should be the favorites.”
Later, he said: “You know the way I feel. I think we have the best defense and the best rushing game. That’s two factors in our favor. With a couple of exceptions on our staff — myself — we have a great coaching staff. I’m not going to trade our team. If I had a chance to coach any team in this tournament, I would choose this one.”
That Rex Ryan is truly a riot, I tell ya.
