You know, I’m proud of our football team, we had a heck of a season, obviously we came up short tonight…just like we did last year, one game away from the big game…and that’s why we played it - to advance and win a super bowl. I’m proud of our guys…we played a good half, we just never played a good game, and you gotta give Pittsburgh credit, that’s a heck of a footbacll team there and if you plan on beating them you betta put 4 quarters together and we just didn’t do that today. thought we were going to win that game. that’s the first time in that situation that our defense hasn’t responded and gotten a big stop to give our offense a chance to win the game, obviously there’s just a huge amount of disappointment for us… but like I say im proud of our team I don’t think that there’s many teams who could have gone through what we did for and got here and almost pulled out another one. but again our goal for next year won’t change, and it will never change. we’re going to chase that super bowl until we get it. And then we’ll chase it after that again. if people want to criticize us, they can, but they got no right.
of course it’s emotional. we came up short. 1 game again. It cuts your heart out. but like I say there’s only one way to respond, we’re gonna roll our sleves and go at it again next year. of course, you get this close, go through the battles that we had to go through - you go thru Indy and play Peyton Manning, and go through New England and face tom brady, and play pittsburgh at pittsburgh.. probably no harder three games than any other team in the league has to go through. we played it’s supposed to hurt. it’s only three years in a row for me to be out in this game. and again I’m going to keep swinging…..
I’m fascinated by language. By how we construct reality through words. I think the above remarks by Rex Ryan speaks to someone who has a tremendous goal in sight. Sees it so clearly and will stop at nothing to get it. The heart of a champion. I believe it. As shocking as it is for me to say, this man will win a super bowl and it could be with the Jets.
