Don't expect New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan to pump the brakes any time soon when it comes to making bold proclamations about his team.
Newsday reporter Roderick Boone asked Ryan about the "soon to be champs" message scrawled on ESPN's training-camp tour bus.
"I don't care if people don't like it. 'Ah, just shut up and win something.' I've won a lot more than that person writing it, I can promise you that," Ryan said. "And I've been there. My family has been to a bunch of these things, and I know how to get there. And the first step is, if you don't believe it yourself, your team darn sure won't.
"Again, I'm not apologizing. I just know what's going to happen. My crystal ball, I'm seeing a Super Bowl trophy in there. I could be wrong, but that's what I see. But every time I go to work, that's what I look at. So we'll see what happens. I'm not embarrassed to say that I believe it will happen. So the great thing is we get to prove it soon, that's the beauty of it."
