Tells us all we need to know.
Joe Namath, one year ago:
"I think these guys might be believing that they're better than they are," opined Namath, the 68-year-old Hall of Famer. "Rex has been the only coach that we know, in maybe the history of the game that I'm familiar with, that keeps continually telling his guys how good they are."
Namath, the man who guaranteed victory in Super Bowl III, even called Ryan's bravado "rather alarming".
"There's one thing about the athlete," Namath said. "You keep telling him how good he is, he's going to start believing it to the point that he may not be preparing quite the way he should. He may be losing some respect for the other team."
