During a 17-minute media session in Indianapolis on Thursday, New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan brashly predicted a Super Bowl XLVI win for his team.
Ryan held court as a part of the NFL Scouting Combine in the same city where Super Bowl XLVI will take place.
As per usual with New York’s burly head coach, he did not mince words:
I believe this is the year we’re going to do it. I believe this is the year we’re going to win the Super Bowl. The fact is, I thought we’d win it the first two years.
I guarantee we’ll win it this year.
Ryan and his team wrote the Super Bowl verbal check last season that bounced in Pittsburgh.
Truth be told, they should be even better in 2011.
However, it would be nice to see Mark Sanchez not need to add to his growing collection of road playoff wins.
It is far to better play at home during the AFC title game than on the road.
Since the 2006 season, road teams are 0-5 in the AFC Championship Game.
