Are you ready for some football? The college and pro seasons are just about to start! With the recent Super Bowl successes of the New York Giants and New England Patriots, you may have forgotten that there's a third NFL team in our area, the New York Jets. The Jets are positioning themselves to make a run for the Super Bowl this year, and in just a couple of years, Head Coach Rex Ryan has established himself as one of the best coaches in the entire league.
Ryan's memoir, Play Like You Mean It, came out a couple of months after last season ended, the Jets having finished just one victory short of the championship game. Whether you're a Jets fan or not, all football fans recognize that Ryan coaches with passion and knows how to get the best from his players. He grew up the son of former coach Buddy Ryan and decided at an early age that football was his destiny. Two seasons ago, he earned his first head coaching job and the Jets have reached the AFC Championship Game in both seasons, under his leadership. Is this going to be the year they take that final step and break the franchise's Super Bowl drought?
Outspoken, brilliant, charismatic, driven, and most of all, passionate about the game -- Ryan writes like he coaches. Jets fans are putting their faith in him and he will reward the optimism with an entertaining season that just may end on a podium in Indianapolis next February. Kick-off is September 8!
