Found December 28, 2011 on Football Nation:
The New York Giants and New York Jets played a crucial battle on the field on Saturday afternoon.  The New York Giants ended up winning the game by the score of 29-14 but this goes deeper than that.  Rex Ryan, the bombastic coach of the New York Jets, decided to get into a war of words with Giants running back Brandon Jacobs.  Ryan always has a lot to say and to be frank Jacobs usually does also.  The two guys really shouldn't have much to say after the years they have had but this was kind of a unavoidable situation between the two guys.  Here is a recap of what went on between the two men.  The two men met up after the game and you could clearly see on T.V. that they exchanged heated words.  I would say there was definitely some cursing involved.  Jacobs said that Ryan went after him "The way his pops went after Kevin Gilbride."  It was a good memory by Jacobs bringing up that altercation after all these years when the two were coaching together.  Mike Garafolo o...

Brandon Jacobs Says Cowboys Fans Are Loud, Obnoxious, Worse than Philly Fans

You want to hear something ironic? Brandon Jacobs used the words “loud” and “obnoxious” to describe a group of people on Thursday.  Has anyone done more complaining during the 2011 season than Jacobs?  He’s already cried about wanting out of New York, complained that the fans are not supportive enough, and called Rex Ryan names.  Naturally, Jacobs now has a problem with...

Rex isn't going to change his act

Rex Ryan isn't about to change his approach.

Brandon Jacobs Hates Cowboys Fans

According to Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News,  Giants running back Brandon Jacobs doesn’t really hate the Dallas Cowboys,  it seems he just can’t stand their fans. “Its their fans. Some of their fans are just loud and obnoxious and … just bad,” said Jacobs. All fans are loud,  so I can’t really [...]

Rex Ryan: I stand by everything I said, I won’t change

Rex Ryan has been criticized by many (Brandon Jacobs most vociferously) for failing to back up his brash talk about his Jets this season. But that doesn’t mean he’s going to change. Ryan said on Monday that he expects to have a long, successful tenure as the Jets’ head coach, and he’ll continue to talk…

Florio: Ryan had to lie about Manning

Mike Florio points out that Rex Ryan's comments about not pursuing Peyton Manning were driven not by reality but rather league tampering rules. These are all things that would encourage a team like the Jets or any team to not say anything about Peyton Manning. But there are some who think that Peyton Manning could be very interested in the Jets.

Guess Rex Ryan really has been naughty this year.

Can They Overcome All the Inconsistencies?

FLORHAM PARK–In an unusual move, Rex Ryan addressed the team this morning just following the stretching period, but before any of the practice started. The team was using its indoor field house, which is a cavernous space, and you could have heard a pin drop as everyone listened intently to what the head coach had to say. Ryan reiterated the opportunity they had in front of them...

Rex: 60 will never come to pass 

Rex Ryan remained steadfast that criticism of the Jets’ 59 pass attempts during the loss to the Giants should be directed at him, not offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer. Ryan then vowed the Jets would never throw 60 times ever again.

Rex Ryan: Jason Taylor a ‘no-brainer Hall of Famer.’

DAVIE — New York Jets coach Rex Ryan is capable of commenting on the opposition without being critical. When told of the news of Dolphins linebacker Jason Taylor reportedly retiring, Ryan was only complimentary. He coached Taylor for one season, even joking he wished the retirement would happen before Sunday’s game. “First off, if that really is the case, he is still playing...

New York Jets Need To Worry About Themselves

If you need any window into why it meant so much for Rex Ryan to tell the world on Monday that the Jets “were better” than the Giants a week before losing to them, look no further than in his book “Play Like you Mean It.” It was released prior to training camp this past summer. Somewhere in it he notes that it meant so much to him to have changed the culture of the Jets...

Owner must flag regressing QB if coach will not

Regardless of what happens in Miami on Sunday, even if the football gods somehow line up so the Jets return to the playoffs, at the end of this season owner Woody Johnson must invoke executive power and force Rex Ryan to thoroughly address Mark Sanchez’s development as a quarterback...
