Rex Ryan: 'we should be the favorites'
If one thing has become clear in Rex Ryan's first season, it's that the Jets head coach doesn't lack confidence, and isn't afraid to say so.
Asked today if he liked being the underdog team in the AFC playoffs, Ryan replied, "I wasn't aware of that, but to me we should be favorites."
Asked if he meant favored Saturday against the Bengals, Ryan replied,"I mean in the whole tournament ... I think we have the best defense; I know we do. I think we have the best rushing attack.
"I want this football team. If I had a choice to coach any team in this tournament, I would choose this one."
