You can say a lot of things about New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan, but you can never question the mans confidence in himself.

Ryan was on ESPN’s The Michael Kay Show and put that confidence on full display.

“I know I’m a great coach. What makes me a great coach is the guys that coach with me and the players that play for me, and everything else this organization has for me. It’s hard for me to look at myself not being successful. I don’t even see (getting fired) as a possibility.

“It might be 10 years from now, or 15 years from now, when Woody Johnson wants to go in a different direction. That’s fine. But I’m going to tell you one thing: I have complete confidence in myself. I’ll leave it to the experts to say my job is on the line. I know one thing: I’m going to give everything I have to this organization … We’ll add it up at the end of the season.”

We should all accept the fact that Ryan is going to talk and be as boastful as he wants to be. If the Jets miss the playoffs again this season, we’ll see if that 15 years from now turns into January or February.
