During a conference call with reporters Monday, Ryan insisted that he nor his team are taking a beat seat to the Giants, whom the Jets square off with Saturday, the Newark Star-Ledger reports.
“Quite honestly, I never came here to be little brother to anybody,” Ryan said. “So, it’s on.”
Ryan, who dubbed his squad the “big brother” of New York football in his book, bluntly stated that Gang Green has performed better than Big Blue in recent memory, and is ready to prove it on the field.

Jets receiver Santonio Holmes had a terrible game in Sunday’s blowout loss to the Eagles. His first-quarter fumble set up Philadelphia’s first touchdown, and a pass bounced out of his hands and into the hands of Philadelphia’s Asante Samuel, setting up the Eagles’ second touchdown.
