Rex Ryan after the game

R. Ryan (US Presswire)
The Jets head coach was awfully good at talking in the weeks leading up to the AFC Championship. So what did Rex Ryan have to say immediately after losing in the AFC’s final for the second year in a row (and third consecutive year for him personally)?

"Our goal for next year, I got news for you. It won’t change. And it’ll never change. We’re gonna chase that Super Bowl. We’re gonna chase it until we get it, and then we’ll chase it after that again. But that’s it. People wanna criticize us, then you go ahead, but you really got no right.”

Saying “you really got no right” doesn’t make a lot of sense given the media-craving nature of Ryan’s team. But give the man a break, he was fresh off a bitter defeat when saying this.

Ryan was also asked about Pittsburgh’s decision to throw the ball on third and long right after the two minute warning. (Ben Roethlisberger rolled out and completed a pass to wide receiver Antonio Brown.)

"I was shocked they didn't run the football," Ryan said. "I expected a QB draw. It was a gutsy call by (Steelers coach Mike) Tomlin. I tip my hat to them for putting the ball in the air. They made huge plays to earn the victory."

I loved the shot of Rex tossing his hat and headset to ground after the Steelers got the first down that clinched the game.It was amusing for this Patriots fan  ...yeah I know my Pats took the gas last week

Sexy Rexy learned not to play footsies with the big boys last night!
He and his mighty team of underachievers, all legends in their own minds, did what they do best!
No, they didn't put their feet in their mouths!
They Choked!
Where was Bart Scott?  Jason Taylor?  Braylon "Hands of Stone" Edwards?
It will be fun to watch this team self destruct next year.  Even more fun than the labor negotiations!
