REX RYAN: NO SUPER BOWL GUARANTEE THIS YEAR

"Jets coach Rex Ryan offered no guarantees this year.<div id="storybody">


A year ago at the NFL scouting combine, a confident Ryan guaranteed that the
Jets would win the Super Bowl. They had reached the previous two AFC
Championship games, and Ryan felt the team was on the cusp of greatness.</p>


Instead, they finished 8-8, missed the playoffs and watched the Giants beat
the New England Patriots in the Super Bowl.</p>


In his return to the combine Thursday, Ryan was apologetic. Before a single
question was asked, he said the guarantee was a "huge mistake," an honest
attempt to motivate his team that backfired. Ryan said he'll still be outspoken,
but he won't say things that hurt the team."</p></div>
