That day the Jets hit Tom Brady so hard and so often that they beat the stuffing out of his UGG boots -- that is if he wore them in those days. "If you make it like that" Ryan said during his weekly spot on ESPN New York 98.7 FM "we're gonna beat this team."

Rob Ryan Had Kenny Powers-Style Mullet, Goatee While Saints Coordinator Was Assistant With Patriots (Photo)

Rex Ryan wants to beat the Patriots so bad he's telling players to abstain from sex, or maybe he isn't

Jets up, down and inconsistent through 3-3 start

The New York Jets were looking like anything but a playoff contender. Then, they pulled off an upset victory last Monday at Atlanta, and the postseason didn't seem so silly a notion.
