"We want to be known as the most physical football team in the NFL," Ryan said Wednesday morning at Jets headquarters after being introduced by team owner Woody Johnson.
"The players will have each other's backs, and if you take a swipe at one of ours, we'll take a swipe at two of yours."
well..being confident is one thing ..but what is this ?
"The only way I know how to handle a challenge is to hit that thing head on," said Ryan, decked out in a black suit and, appropriately, a green tie. "The message to the rest of the league is `Hey, the Jets are coming, and we're going to give you everything we got. And I think that's going to be more than you can handle
"I'm not a one-hit wonder," Ryan said. "When you look at my background, I think I've been successful at all stops along the way. I know the kind of responsibility it takes to be a head football coach. Again, you got the right guy -- and I plan on proving that each and every week."

Make no mistake about this, and disregard what is said at the podium today, this was the owner’s call. Woody Johnson fell in love with Rex Ryan and basically stopped all the Brian Schottenheimer talk by his GM. After Johnson met with Ryan, the Jets’ search was over, and GM Mike Tannenbaum was ordered to start contract talks. Johnson was captivated by Ryan, and I’m sure Tannenbaum supported the idea once he knew there was no way of talking Johnson out of Ryan. But this clearly was not the direction he was intending to proceed when he fired Eric Mangini. And part of the problem with Brian Schottenheimer staying on the staff is that someone in the building told Schottenheimer he would be free to look for other work if he didn’t get the head coach job. Now that has changed, and Schottenheimer is wondering why they’re backing out of their oral agreement.
thats an interesting dynamic. will be hilarious if Mike T is left without a job in the end after doing all the backstabbing.
Said his Dad would be around the building, and that he would allow his coaches to be interviewed.
I'm excited, and look forward to see what Ryan can do with the Jets D, and developing Ghoulston.
I believe his dad was at the Ravens-Pats game last year which Tubby Wrecks messed up by going over Billick's head and calling time out right before Brady was stacked up at the line on fourth down. Buddy never did anything as a head coach either. Your Green Beans will be tough, dumb, and mediocre. My condolences.
