Rex Ryan called season ticket holders with a special prerecorded message yesterday.
"Hey this is Rex Ryan Head Coach of the New York Jets. I just want to let you know how much we need you this week. You know, I’ve already admitted that the Patriots have a better head coach and they got a better Quarterback than us, but we got to see who’s got a better team.
And the other part, the reason I’m so confident is that they’ve got to face you and the got to face the rest of our fans. And my challenge to you is that we need you at your best, so let’s come get ready to go for four quarters and get after them, especially when our defense is out there we really need you and we want it to be miserable for Brady & Company and seem like there’s 13 or 14 guys out there on defense. It’s tough enough when we have 11 but when our fans are into it it’s almost impossible to do anything against us.
So, that’s my challenge to you and again I admit that I’m not as good as Belichick, but at the end of the game, I want to be 1-0 against him. So, help me out if you don’t mind, so that’s my challnege. OK? Thank you. Bye.''
Nice move to fire up the fan base, but if you can't get ready for a home opener with a bitter rival and first place on the line, you don't have a pulse.
