New York Post - Jets:
Just a few minutes before Bart Scott would issue his statement that the Jets are not playing like a playoff team, head coach Rex Ryan nearly predicted his linebacker was about to say something. “Bart is back to being Bart,” Ryan said. “I just see how enthusiastic he is. It...

The New York Jets head coach's latest round of smack talk relates to how he took offense to how the Jets are often characterized as the "little brother" to the Giants.
Rex Ryan said he understood Bart Scott’s message Thursday about the Jets not being playoff-caliber yet, much less a Super Bowl contender. He grasped it was just the emotional linebacker’s way of keeping the team from getting complacent. But Ryan said make no mistake, Gang Green is a...

NEW YORK — Rex Ryan got on the phone, paused for a second and then offered the one positive thought he could come up with.
REX RYAN HAS consumed large helpings of humble pie throughout the season. His team had sunk in the standings during the course of a three-game cross-country slide, only to reemerge in recent weeks on top of an AFC playoff spot.
Jets receiver Santonio Holmes had a terrible game in Sunday’s blowout loss to the Eagles. His first-quarter fumble set up Philadelphia’s first touchdown, and a pass bounced out of his hands and into the hands of Philadelphia’s Asante Samuel, setting up the Eagles’ second touchdown. To top it all off, even when Holmes finally made…
We know we have to improve as a team in all phases, and we challenged our team that way. That’s the mentality, is we’ve got to keep getting better. You can’t stay the same. … We have to get better so that’s our mentality, that’s our mindset. Do I think we’re a playoff team? I absolutely do. But we have some work to do.”
–Rex Ryan on whether or not the Jets are playoff caliber
(Eds: With AP Photos.) By JIM LITKE AP Sports Columnist The rest of us should be grateful the Jets and Giants only play each other once every four years.
Imagine the hype if next weekend's ''Battle of New York'' actually meant something.
''There's no way I'm going to be second fiddle,'' blustery Jets coach Rex Ryan said. ''If...
The morning after the Jets were throttled by the Eagles, Rex Ryan went into overdrive and hyped up this week’s game against the Giants, which is a virtual must win for both teams.
There are defensive coordinators who would be chastened by the fact that their unit blew fourth quarter leads two weeks in a row and put their team at serious risk of missing the playoffs.
Rob Ryan is not one of those defensive coordinators.
In one of the more entertaining press conference performances you could hope to see, Ryan admitted that the defense needs to do a better job...
Controlling your own destiny never made much sense to me. Destiny in itself is predetermined by definition so controlling it (while understandable), is ambiguous. What a strange way to start off. Anyway, the Jets need to win and to do that they need to beat an extremely talented 5-8 Eagles team. Nothing is scarier than a team that has (almost) nothing to play for except playing...
