Rex Ryan fielded a question about whether it's OK for fans to wish the Jets to lose the remainder of their games to improve their draft standing -- though it's also implied in losing out that Ryan himself might be fired, so you can imagine what his response was.

"I want to apologize to those fans right now, because there’s no way we’re tanking anything. No way. That’s, there’s nobody in this organization that feels that way. We’re going to go out to compete to win every single game, and that’s just the way it is.

"Fans want to win, there’s no question. They want what’s best for their team. Are there some fans out there that truly believe in their heart of hearts that the best thing to do is that and improve your draft thing, maybe there is. But most of the fans I know, they’re lining up there for you and they want to win."
