Remember when the Ravens were supposed to be the Raiders of the East because of their swagger?
Well, the New York Jets are now embracing the role of the team that everyone loves to despise with their brash predictions.
"We're the Miami Heat of football," cornerback Antonio Cromartie told the New York Daily News.
Here's some other quotes from the article ...
Head coach Rex Ryan: "Is it going to be easy? Hell no. There's no guarantee that this is going to happen. But I sense it's going to happen. I really believe that we're going to do this thing. In my heart, I think this is the time."
Quarterback Mark Sanchez on his conversations with general manager Mike Tannenbaum: "He's like, 'We're picking up another one. I was like, 'Geez! What's going on here? We're building a dream team.'"
Tight end Dustin Keller: "Some people may think if we took a step closer and just got there, that'd be enough. But it's not at all. This team is basically Super Bowl or bust."
