After New York Jets cornerback Antonio Cromartie said he believes the team will still make the playoffs, head coach Rex Ryan told reporters the whole team feels that way (Credit: AP Photo) At 3-5, the New York Jets currently sit at third place in the AFC East. Today while on NFL AM, Jets corner back Antonio Cromartie said he still believes the team will make the playoffs. “The Jets will make the playoffs this year,” Cromartie said. “We believe in each other, we believe in what coach Ryan and his staff is putting us to schemes and stuff, so we’re definitely going to make the playoffs this year.” Head coach Rex Ryan came out to support Cromartie saying the whole team feels as though they will make the playoffs. “I feel as an entire football team that we should all feel like that. And I think we do feel like that,” Ryan said, via Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News. “Nobody wants to hear it, but who cares? That’s really how we feel. That’s our mentality. Whether you like it or not, that’s our mentality. I would think the Jets fans and the Jet community, obviously, they would want us to feel that way. And we do.” “We’re not happy with where we are with that 3-5 record,” Ryan said. “We know it’s tough to get into the playoffs especially when you back yourself up with that 3-5 record. But again, we’re going to keep swinging until they tell us that we’re out. All of us, in my opinion, believe we can make it.” While every team should be confident they can win, the Jets have a long road ahead of them if they think they are going to make the playoffs.
