New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan spoke to the media today from the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis, and admitted that guaranteeing a Super Bowl victory a year ago was a "huge mistake."

"It contributed to the season we had," Ryan said of the guarantee. "It's something I've been thinking about a great deal."

Ryan is being forced to re-examine a lot of things about the way he has gone about his business this offseason. The Jets not making the playoffs while the New York Giants -- who Ryan tweaked continuously over the past couple of seasons -- won the Super Bowl. Added to that all of the locker room turmoil Ryan admitted he wasn't aware of his left Ryan doing some soul-searching this offseason.

It will be interesting to see how long the new, humble, Ryan lasts.
