New Jersey governor Chris Christie is no stranger to voicing his opinion, even when it's not necessarily a popular one. He's also no stranger to being goaded by the media. But on Monday, those worlds collided during Christie's guest-hosting spot on WFAN's Boomer and Carton show in New York -- and the results weren't pretty. In short, Christie took New York Daily News Jets beat writer Manish Mehta to task for the way he questioned Jets coach Rex Ryan following Saturday's preseason game against the Giants.

This is a very well written letter by Valentina from Rick’s Cabaret in NYC. Dear Rex, Can you please give Geno Smith another chance?

Who (if anybody) is the Pats' biggest threat in the AFC East?

Besides the Patriots, the rest of the AFC East has essentially been a revolving door with the Jets, Dolphins, and Bills putting their best efforts to upset and occasionally steal a game or two from the Pats.

Comical Jets sign former CFL 4th string QB Graham Harrell

The Jets have turned from a team that went to two consecutive AFC Championship games, to a ridiculous joke of a team. Rex Ryan loves attention for himself, but now people are laughing at his team.
