"Can't wait!" Scott shouted into an ESPN microphone when told "Congratulations, see you in Pittsburgh" after New York's 28-21 victory over the New England Patriots last Sunday.
Rex Ryan opened his news conference saying he knows everybody "can't wait" for what's usually a boring injury report. Laughter followed, and the coach went on to call the video a "classic."
"It's kind of funny. I saw it the other day. It's a classic, no question about it," Ryan said, noting he was impressed with the way Scott managed to turn palms up while imitating a jet landing as he approached the interviewer.
"I'm not really savvy on the technical tips," he said. "My wife has teased me a lot. She uses that in case I ever get mad at her or something. She says she'll get me locked up -- she'll use that video as a reference."
"No team has really taken as much from me as the Pittsburgh Steelers," Scott said. "Ben Roethlisberger has taken a Super Bowl appearance from me just three years ago. I know what a tall task it is to go into Pittsburgh and try to win. He's experienced at it. They are comfortable and they know how to win in these type situations. I've yet to cross that threshold. Hoping that we can do that this week."
Scott has been taking a ribbing all week from coaches and teammates about the interview. Asked if he'd seen it, defensive coordinator Mike Pettine said "only about 50 times."
Scott is cool about it.
"It's something funny that happened, spur of the moment," he said. "I probably won't live it down for a while. It comes with the territory. I don't mind it."
