Ryan on Belichick: 'I came here to kick his ass'

There's not much needed to hype up this coming week's game between the Jets and the Patriots -- they're arguably the two best teams in the NFL right now, and the Monday night tilt is a just reward for viewers forced to suffer through last night's stinkbomb between Arizona and San Francisco.

But, just in case you weren't excited, about a potent quotable from Rex Ryan to get your motor running? Like, for instance, one about kicking Bill Belichick's "ass"? Is that something you might be interested in?

"I just told the truth," Ryan said via the Boston Globe. "I came here to win. As much as I respect and admire Bill Belichick, I came here to kick his ass, and that's the truth. That's just the way it is."

In fairness, Ryan also called Belichick "the best coach in football" and "the one to beat," so it's not like he was challenging him to a steel cage death match or anything.

Even Belichick called the comments "understandable."

"There’s no love lost between these teams," Belichick said. "That’s what we’re here for. Is that a news story? Is that something you didn’t know? Patriots and Jets want to win the game? I’m not surprised that they expect to win the game, they’re confident, so are we."

And therein lies the difference between Ryan and Belichick. They basically said the exact same thing -- "We want to beat our rival and we want to beat them badly." -- only one made it really, really fun to use in a quoted headline, and the other sounded like every single other person in the NFL not named Derek Anderson.

As someone who certainly knows a bit about the sport i can correct you because the Pats and Jets have almost the exact same schedule. They play their division teams twice for a total of six, an NFC division, which takes us to ten, then an AFC dicvision, Now we are at 14. Than leaves two games. Because the Patriots were the division winners they are forced to play the other two top AFC teams from their respective divisions. (Colts,Chargers) The Jets were scheduled (Houston, Denver) decent i guess. The facts being made are that against the NFC the pats are 2-0, Jets 2-1 AFC Pats 3-1 Jets 2-1 AFC East Pats 2-1 Jets 3-0At large Pats 2-0 Jets 2-0 Wins over 500 teams, Pats 5-1, Jets 2-2 (2 less games against winning teams)The schedule makes all of the difference because the Pats schedule is more dificult. Bottom line we will see how it all pans out on monday night.

I'm a PATS fan...The Jets climbed to the top of my hate list faster than the Giants "head-catch" at the SuperBowl...Shut UP...I hope the PATS Defense brings their "A" game and we STIFFLE the green chumps.

I would agree with you, and as a Pats fan I had to soul search on that one. It use to bug me that the 1972 "Perfect" Dolphins played only 2 teams above .500 (both 8-6). for the whole season plus they played a total of only 14 games.. ..but they still had a perfect season no matter how you slice it. The 2001 Patriots played a very weak schedule and won the Super Bowl so thats why I can't hate this years Jets. And even though the Pats have beaten Cincy, San Diego(road), Miami (road), Buffalo, Minnesota, Baltimore, Pittsburgh (road), Indy and Detroit on Thanksgiving it doesn't matter. Because the NFL is a beast!! Any given Sunday right? If Cleveland can blow out the Pats and Green Bay can shutout the Jets in NY then nothing should surprise anyone. Winning is the name of the game! By 1 or by 30, it doesn't matter....As long as you win and get better as the seasons moves on...Cant wait for Monday's game
