At the NFL owners meeting on Tuesday, New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan told the media that they want what the New York Giants currently have and that’s of course a Super Bowl title.
“We want what the Giants got. We want to win a Super Bowl & we’re going to do everything we can to build a better football team,” said Ryan.
Ryan has always been outspoken when it comes to his desire to win a Super Bowl. But this offseason he’s been more reserved about any predictions and it looks like he finally knows who the team to beat in New York is.
BEST OF MAXIM
New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan threw his weight behind Mark
Sanchez Tuesday. One day after the Jets introduced Tim Tebow as the
team's backup quarterback, Ryan expressed his support for Sanchez,
saying the quarterback would have received a contract extension
regardless of who the team acquired.
Despite rumors earlier in the offseason that the New York Jets were looking to trade veteran linebacker Bart Scott, head coach Rex Ryan made it clear that he isn’t going anywhere when asked about his status for next season.
“Yeah, I certainly think so,” Ryan replied.
“Why wouldn’t (he be back)?” Ryan said at the NFL meetings on Tuesday morning per Manish Mehta of the...
Move over, Linsanity. Tebowmania is the new flavor of the month. Only this flavor is going to last so long that the good folks over at Stride could come knocking at Rex Ryan's office door before long. (Then again, Stride is owned by Kraft Foods, so they might refrain -- but I digress). All stupid puns and what not aside, it's time we realize just how powerful this Tim Tebow...
New Jets quarterback Tim Tebow made it abundantly clear how excited he was to join the Jets on Monday afternoon in his introductory news conference. On Tuesday, his head coach did the same. New York head coach Rex Ryan addressed the media on Tuesday morning in Florida, as he's currently in Palm Beach for the NFL meetings. As Ryan has been known to do, the boisterous head coach...
New York Jets coach Rex Ryan expects quarterback Tim Tebow to be far more involved than regular NFL backups, saying Sunday that the new recruit could play up to 20 snaps per game.
"Tim is going to be a major contributor to our football team," Ryan told the NFL Network.
"With the Wildcat specifically, the great thing is you don't know if we're going to run...
At this point in the New York Jets off-season, it is easy to be a little confused, angry and disappointed. Here is a review of what they have done so far -
Signed a highly injury prone strong safety, LaRon Landry
Signed a highly injury prone wide receiver, Chaz Schilens
Traded for a backup quarterback/wildcat option, Tim Tebow
Re-signed Sione Pouha and Bryan Thomas
Get used to it, fellas. This is the future of Skip Bayless on ESPN. Let us recap this press conference for you guys who are at work: I’m here to be a great teammate. I have a great relationship with Rex Ryan. Rex has the same agent as I do. I’m excited to be a Jet. I think it’s going to be alot of fun. This is a blessing for me. It’s going to be a great opportunity.
With the Jets losing sight of their ground and pound identity in 2011, Rex Ryan is praying Tim Tebow will restore the team’s powerful rushing game.
It takes too much effort to try and rationalize any of the things that have happened in the past week in the NFL. Sean Payton is going to be on his couch for the year, Gregg Williams is facing what may be a “multi-year” ban from the NFL, and the team that threw for 5000 yards is probably not going to make the playoffs if: the Panthers get a defense, the Buccaneers get an offense...
Jets head coach Rex Ryan isn't hiding the fact that he plans to use new backup quarterback Tim Tebow more than the average coach uses the average backup. That, presumably, means the Jets will feature some variation of the Wildcat a little bit more often next season. That means that Mark Sanchez has some work to do. More specifically, Sanchez has to rid himself of that flinching...
APNewsNow. Will be updated. With AP Photos. By BARRY WILNER AP Pro Football Writer Jets coach Rex Ryan says the team did not consult with starting quarterback Mark Sanchez before it acquired Tim Tebow.
Ryan didn't think that was unusual, telling reporters Tuesday at the NFL owners meetings that ''Mark's job is to play quarterback, not be the general manager.'...
