Bill Belichick is the ‘best coach in the game,’ according to Rex Ryan

In an interview set to run Wednesday night on the NFL Network, New York Jets coach Rex Ryan talked about Patriots coach Bill Belichick and called him the “best coach in the game.”
“I can put my resume out there, stats, with anybody’s who’s ever coached in this league. That’s a fact. Defensively, that’s a fact. But I don’t need any credit. I just want to win. I want what Bill Belichick’s got,” Ryan told Michael Irvin.
“I think Bill Belichick is the best coach in this game. I don’t even think it’s close. But I’m trying. And I know one thing — he knows that I’m going to compete with him every time we play him,” he added. “If it ever comes down to just me versus him, we’re going to end up on the short end of the stick. But when it’s about us — our football team versus his football team — that’s where I even have more confidence.”
