The Giants beat the Jets 29-14 Saturday at the Meadowlands. Though Brandon Jacobs did very little in the game (7 carries for 42 yards), he made plenty of noise once it was over. Jacobs got into a verbal spar with Rex Ryan and threatened to punch the Jets coach.

According to the NY Daily News, “Jacobs called Ryan a “loudmouth bastard” and Jacobs said Ryan told him to “shut the f— up.” Jacobs said he called him “fat boy” and when Ryan tried to talk back to him, Jacobs said, “I told him I’d punch him in the head.”

Jacobs elaborated on his feelings after the game and said Rex’s big mouth puts his players in a bad spot.

“They got a big-mouthed coach, a big mouth and a big-bellied coach that talks too much and now it’s finally time to shut up,” said Jacobs.

“I think the Jets are a good football team. I do think them as players are put in places they don’t really need to be by their coach,” Jacobs said. “He needs to shut up. He’s a great coach, I take nothing away from him. He comes from a great coaching family. But he needs to shut up.”

The Jets players used to love the confidence Ryan expressed in them, but maybe their thoughts have changed. Some people may say that Rex’s big-mouthed act is getting old. I say the real problem is Mark Sanchez; he’s too inconsistent to be a franchise quarterback. As long as Rex backs him, he’ll see problems.
