The big, bold statements are back — and so is Rex Ryan.

The New York Jets coach, kept on board despite owner Woody Johnson firing general manager Mike Tannenbaum, says Tuesday it is a new "beginning" for him. He adds that his team will not be "bullied," and promises that his bunch will be one that no opponents will want to face next season.

No Super Bowl guarantees, but this certainly was Rex: Reloaded.

During a nearly 40-minute "season-ending" news conference that came nine days after the Jets finished 6-10, both Johnson and Ryan spoke about being excited for the team's future. Ryan acknowledged he was concerned he could be fired because of his "failings," but Johnson insisted that "Rex Ryan is perfect for the New York Jets."
