Rex Ryan on Patriots: 'They need to worry about us'

<p> New York Jets coach Rex Ryan has regained his swagger, if he ever lost it.</p> <p> Ryan told the New York Post that the New England Patriots should be worried about his J ets team.</p> <p> “Somebody asked me if we focus on New England. Bullsh-t,” Ryan said. “We’re focused on us. We’re focused on us and how are we going to be better. I have to be honest, I don’t worry about them. They need to worry about us. I think that’s really where we’re at now.”</p> <p> The Jets haven't done much lately to worry the Patriots, but that isn't stopping Ryan from talking big.</p> <p> “8-8 is not going to be good enough for us, for anybody in this organization,” Ryan said. “Am I going to get fired if we’re 8-8 or whatever? I don’t know. But I can tell you one thing — our goals are set a hell of a lot higher than that. I don’t care where they rank us or whatever. I know what we’ve got. That’s why I just can’t wait. I can’t wait to get to prove it. Not by me. I’m going to prove it. I am going to prove it. But so is my team. That’s the mission that we have.”</p> <p> Follow me on Twitter: <a href="http://www.twitter.com/RavensInsider">@RavensInsider</a></p> <p> Aaron Wilson covers the Ravens for The Baltimore Sun</p>
