You don’t have to be a Star Wars nerd to think this NY Post sports cover (see a bigger version here) is fantastic. Rex Ryan as Han Solo, Joe Namath as Yoda, Nick Mangold as a Wookie an Ewok, Mark Sanchez as Luke Skywalker, and (of course) Bill Belichick as Darth Vadar.

Not much else to add here, but what an awesome, awesome cover. And this was the first shot across the bow in what has turned out to be a Boston vs. New York newspaper war.

Even the headline (Return of Jet-I), which should seem oh-so-obvious comes across as very clever. As Yoda would say, How cool this is?

It doesn't seem to  end with these NYJ fans - they wish they were as good as the Pats or Giants - they have an inferiority complex.  Can't wait to see the idiot show up with the fireman hat chanting J-E-T-S. The Giants are the real team in the Big Apple - the Jets are like the Mets compare to the Yankees.

Can't wait for this game!

@bradyfan ... don't kid yourself.  Sure, the rest of the country hates NY, but Boston/NE ain't far behind.  If there was a way they both could lose, and both towns would sink into the ocean, I'b probably give up not only me left nut, but me right one too.  America is pulling for you to both be snowed under, and not surface until 2050.

Ummm...Brady-Fan, America will be rooting for the Jets, sorry to say. No one outside of Boston, and Pats fans, wants to see the Patriots cheat their way to another SuperBowl.

I believe you are correct sir, if anyone is anyone from star wars, Rex is jabba! But rex is going to get what he wants anyways, because belicheck and the patriots are going to walk all over him and the jets!!! Rex Ryan didnt come to kiss Bills rings he came to kiss his feet!lol! The Patriots are on a return to glory and think about this, with the youngest defense in the league and 2 picks in the 1st rd and the 1st pick of the 2nd round ha ha ha!!!! Go Pats!!!! Brady for MVP, Belicheck for coach of the year!!!

Since the good guys always win, shouldn't Brady be Sky Walker? Belichick would obviously be Obi Wan Kenobi and then Rex Ryan would be Jabba the hut.  The Jets always lose, so they’re obviously the bad guys.

New England Division Titles – 13; New York Division Titles – 4.

The New York Post comes from one of the most hated (and sometimes loved) sports towns in America. So their joke will run fine in New York, but will probably find a more muted audience in other areas of the country.  America will be pulling for the Patriots this week, if only to shut Jabba ‘er Ryan the Hut and his whining Charger cast-offs the phony LT and Cromartie (not so smarty) from blabbering another week.

The J-E-T- S are losers… and have been since their Yoda wore fur coats on the side-line in the 60s.  There isn't another NFL team that could represent the Empire better, especially when it comes to losing.
