INDIANAPOLIS — If you bet that Rex Ryan wasn’t going to spend the first five minutes of his presser at the NFL Scouting Combine talking about CSI and guaranteeing a Super Bowl victory, perhaps betting isn’t for you.

Ryan did just that, telling stories about the cameo he and Mike Tannenbaum made on the show, and saying that he has no reason not to believe that the Jets will win it all next year.

Ryan’s Jets knocked off the Patriots in the divisional round of the playoffs this past season after the Pats finished the regular season with a league-best 14-2 record. Despite the Jets going to the AFC Championship in consecutive seasons, Ryan said they have not surpassed the Patriots as the team to beat in the AFC East.

“I would say without question that we’re behind them still,” Ryan said.

The coach added that he isn’t going to get too concerned with the CBA situation, saying that “whatever’s dealt to us, we’re going to handle” and that “we have a plan for every scenario.”
