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 ‘€œbest coach in the game.’€

‘€œI 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.

‘€œI 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. ‘€œIf 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.’€
