Rex Ryan Compares Himself to Babe Ruth

Rex Ryan is at it again.

Even when he’s not guaranteeing a Super Bowl, he’s still making headlines.

This time, he’s comparing himself to a New York icon. The one and only Babe Ruth.

“They talk about walk softly and carry a big stick. I love that. I agree with that 100%,” Ryan said, standing outside the hotel at the NFL league meetings. “But I guess I feel more like Babe Ruth. I’m going to walk softly, I’m going to carry that big stick and then I’m going to point and then I’m going to hit it over the fence.”

“It’s like he had the courage to do that. I think I’ve got the courage,” Ryan said. “Now granted, I can’t hit anywhere close to Babe Ruth and I’m not as good a coach as Babe Ruth was a player. But I still feel the same way. I still feel like, why wouldn’t I say it? It’s easier for me to say it because I have people with me. Babe Ruth had to walk up there by himself. But if everything was up to me and that we were going to win (if) I’d hit one out, I believe myself I’m going to hit it out. More importantly, I believe in everybody – our players, our coaches, the fan base we have established here, everybody in the organization.”
