When the same reporter reminded him that the Ravens have qualified for the playoffs every season since Ryan left, Ryan answered quickly.
“Well, I’ve gone to the playoffs every year, and I’ve gone to the championship game every year since I’ve been here as well,” he said. “But who cares? This is what it is. They know I did a great job there for 10 years. Those players did a great job for me there. They’re the reason why I’ve been put in this position and all that. And no matter what kind of ridiculous question it’s going to be, the simple fact of the matter is, they’re two pretty good football teams going at it.”
