Kissing Suzy Kolber:
The New York Post’s Steve Serby, wacky topical punster beloved by the worst of all sportswriters, attempted a foray into the world of invented satirical NFL dialogues, a practice that crass, juvenile blogs have traded on for years and years. Surely, a professional writer with a bent for the ridiculous should be able to pull off a fictional conversation between Rex Ryan and Tom Coughlin with no problem at all. Here is but a taste:
Tom: “I’m worried about my team, to be honest with you, Rex. We’re trying to build a bridge.”
Rex: “Hey, speaking of bridges, I could probably walk across one now and not have it collapse (laugh out loud). Too bad Brandon Jacobs isn’t still with you, he wouldn’t be telling me, ‘Shut up, Fatboy,’ there’s no doubt (laugh out loud). Hey, how was training camp?”
LAUGH OUT LOUD!!!!!!!!!!
Killed it, Serby. Only a true pro would think to put a laugh track within a blog post.

Rex Ryan believes the Jets defense will again rank in the NFL's top five this season, as it did in each of his first three seasons as head coach, Jenny Vrentas of the Newark Star-Ledger reports. It wasn't one of those guarantees the toned-down Ryan has sworn off, but it was close. "Am I confident in our defense?" Ryan said today. "Absolutely. Granted, I said...

“Am I confident in our defense?” Ryan said today, per Vrentas. “Absolutely. Granted, I said top five. That’s a given. I don’t care who’s out there. (Defensive coordinator) Mike Pettine at free safety. That’s a stretch...
ENOUGH IS ENOUGH
Even though he's a 49er now and not playing in New York, ex-Giants running back Brandon Jacobs is still unable to hide his disdain for the Jets, calling the team a "circus."
CORTLAND, N.Y. -- Olympic track star and former University of Florida running back Jeff Demps has drawn interest from several NFL teams, including the New York Jets, per ESPNNewYork.comHead coach Rex Ryan and general manager Mike Tannenbaum have put a premium on improving team speed this offseason -- a glaring piece missing from their 2011 puzzle.

The Jets have been the central focus of ESPN since training camp began, and that truth hasn’t been lost on Rex Ryan or many others. The Jets coach went so far as to call his team ESPN’s version of “Hard Knocks,” which is a show on HBO that follows one NFL team throughout training camp (the Jets were featured on “Hard Knocks” in 2010).
“I know we did Hard Knocks before...

Will Beatty slept in his own bed the past two nights. Let's get that out of the way right off the bat. Regardless, the Giants' left tackle did not practice today because of a continuing back issue that has had him in and out (though mostly out) of practice this spring and summer. "He's back on the shelf," coach Tom Coughlin said after practice. "He'...
Last offseason, Spencer Paysinger showed up to New York Giants training camp as an undrafted rookie linebacker out of Oregon with a very limited opportunity to prove himself worthy of making the roster. With Jacquian Williams, Greg Jones and Mark Herzlich all attempting to make the team as well, it seemed as if Paysinger was just going to be an extra body for training camp. Surprisingly...
Giants’ oft injured defensive tackle, Marvin Austin, was at the Hospital for Special Surgery in Manhattan on Tuesday for tests on his back. Indications were positive and Austin was quoted by the New York Daily News as saying it was “a little back ache.”
But hold on just a minute. Not according to Giants Head Coach Tom Coughlin. “They’re doing more tests,” Coughlin...
Every year there is some turnover in the NFL, as head coaches are among the most visible and, therefore, criticized members of any team. Here is one take on three coaches who will be fired this season.
1. Mike Smith
The Atlanta Falcons' head coach may be a surprising first pick to lose his job. He is one of only six coaches in NFL history to take a team with a losing...

The Giants are sending Austin, their second-year defensive tackle, for more tests on the back injury that has kept him out since early this week. He will not play Saturday night against the Jets and might...
The New York Giants and the New York Jets will battle for bragging rights this Saturday night (August 18th) in the 2nd preseason game.
The Jets recently have been measuring themselves against the Giants (mostly since Rex Ryan arrival) as the Giants approach these matchups with the Jets as just another game.
