Fun times here in the New York area. The Giants hammered the Jets Saturday, but the fun was just starting during the game.
Talk Is Cheap, Play the Game took an unexpected and vicious holiday the minute Giants 29, Jets 14 ended yesterday.
That was when Brandon Jacobs became the mouth that roared back at Rex Ryan.
“Rex Ryan is a disrespectful bastard,” Jacobs said to ESPN, later adding, “The Jets have a big-mouthed, big-bellied coach that talks too much.”
All the animosity and bad will Ryan has spread across Big Blue Nation over the past three years was shoved back in Ryan’s face both on the field and after the game by the lead bully of a Giants team that bullied Mark Sanchez and the Jets — their little brother Jets — and kept their NFC title hopes alive with the Cowboys showdown looming a week from today.
Jacobs message for Ryan?“You need to shut up,” Jacobs said. “He’s a great coach, and I take nothing away from him. Comes from a great coaching family, but he just needs to shut up.”
That was Jacobs’ message delivered through the media. On the field after the Battle of New York, Jacobs delivered his message in person.
“Well you know I didn’t really say too much to him,” Jacobs said.
“I know he told me, ‘Shut the F up. Wait ’til we win the Super Bowl.’
“And I told him I’ll punch him in his face.”
Just shut up and beat the Cowboys next Sunday.
