Speaking to reporters at the Scouting Combine, New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan made a startling revelation.
The Jets had a bad season. A really bad season. And he should have never guaranteed a Super Bowl win.
“It was a huge mistake to make that guarantee,” Ryan said. ”In hindsight, I think it put undue pressure upon our team. . . . Obviously we had a terrible season. I’ll take full responsibility for that.”
As for next season, Ryan has no guarantees in store.
“Looking forward, first off no promises. We’re going to have a team now. I think we’ll have the potential,” Ryan said, smiling with a pause, “to do great things.”
