You can’t put anything past the divisive Ryan, not even crying on cue. He has relied on motivational gimmicks all year. From a recorded message for Jets’ season-ticket holders prior to their Week 2 game against the rival Patriots to his postseason calendar, Ryan has been a coach that Jets fans love and everyone else loves to hate. He may need to pull a few more rabbits out of his hat to make his Super Bowl dream a reality, but he won’t find any doubters in the Jets’ locker room.
