Whatever You Say, Rex

Attention: The New York Jets should be favored to win the Super Bowl. You read that correctly.

I'm not going to bash the guy - or anyone - that makes some sort of guarantee, in any sense of the word. And that is what this is. He's saying we're the team to beat; we're gonna win. Fine. Sure, whatever.

But, really? After your team had their spot in the playoffs gift-wrapped by the Colts and, to a lesser extent, the Bengals? Come on. They are 3-point underdogs to the Bengals, a team the just beat 37-0. They have odds of 25-1 to win the Super Bowl. Favored? Really?

He has confidence; we love that, usually. But he's said way too much already, not even one year into his tenure. Let his players do the talking. Better yet, let them do it on the field. Save it, Rex.

E, you gonna take that bet?
