NEW YORK -- Fact: if you ask anyone about anything in the NFL, you have to ask them about the New York Jets and Rex Ryan.

And if you find yourself at an Under Armour Charged Cotton Draft Chat with Tom Brady in New York City and fail to ask about Rex, well, you're fired on the spot.

Not by Brady though -- it's pretty obvious he's answered his share of questions about the division rivals at this point and could talk about something else. 

"My favorite subject -- let's talk about the Jets," Brady half-joked, half-complained when asked about Ryan's new book. "As long as he hates me, I'm cool. Because he's the leader of that team and the players take after their coach. They've had successful postseasons, you know, getting to the AFC Championship Game. So I'm sure we'll be prepared to play them when we do."

The beauty of that quip is like ten-fold. It contains the stereotypical "Patriot Way" quote ("I'm sure we'll be prepared"), it offers a little reverence to Ryan's role ("he's the leader") and success ("success postseasons") but it also totally takes a potshot at the Jets inability to win a Super Bowl under Ryan thus far.

That's not saying that Ryan is a loser because he doesn't have a title, just that he's guaranteed a lot of them, and still has three less than Brady and Bill Belichick. The real tragedy here, of course, is that no one got to ask Brady about the shocking third-round move by the Pats to draft Ryan Mallett.

More than anything, though, it's a reminder that we need football back ASAP, so we can go back enjoying the rivalries that actually take on the field.

Brady on Rex: 'As long as he hates me, I'm cool'

WoW jets fans really are a bunch of morons. Making the post season and winning the first 2 rounds is good but until you take home some hardware either the championship or super bowl you guys need to put a sock in it.This garbage of oh we won 5 playoff games the last 2 years blah blah blah. I would be embarassed to even use that talking crap. just shows 1969 is a very long time ago.

Brady on Rex: 'As long as he hates me, I'm cool'

Remember since Rex took over, he has 4 playoff wins to none for New England. All those games came on the road as well.

Fans can mock Rex all they want. However, he's 24- 14 as Jets coach including the post-season. He also is the most liked coach by the NFL players who stated they'd rather play for him then any other coach(besides their own).

Yeah, he fat, loud and has some weird fetishes, but the guy can flat out coach. His players love him and he's 3-2 vs the so-called "genius" Bill Belichick. He also changed the culture under the brain dead quote master Herm Edwards. Those teams played not to lose, while his team plays to win. As for the next meeting with Brady, we Jets fans "Can't wait!"

Rex can't show any rings either...both teams can't finish. 
Wrong! He has a Super Bowl ring from his coaching days with the Ravens.

Sorry, for the huge print. Here's the post again, with one minor addition...

If anyone needs to know why the CBS rating system is a joke, just look at this guy's rating. That's why they are totally meaningless. There is no way he can be in the top 1,000 of anything except clueless helots. A classless and an utterly pathetic post.

As bad as Ben may be, he's won 2 SB's since Brady did and his team didn't choke to the worst SB champion ever. The Giants haven't won a post-season game since and haven't made the post-season the last 2 years. Brady was exposed in that game and in the AFC title game. He's no Joe Montana. In fact, he's not even Terry Bradshaw. In fact, he's not even Troy Aikman. Those guys are undefeated in Super Bowls.

You know, you really are an idiot.  I'll take the only undefeated season of 18 straight, and more divsion crowns, plus the only unanimous MVP season.  Let see if Rapistberger go go a whole season with only 4 interceptions.  What is he trying to make it leagal to molest women by getting married

biglebowski, you still throwing grapes. The reason they are in the press is because EVERY team is trying to be the Patriots. When you talk Dynasty the first team is the Patriots. Every team has films of every game and play calls from the games before. That spygate stuff smells like "FEET." Sorry i had to get that in there some how...lol

Well said Elfboy.  I doubt it Tom Brady is going to say anything deragatory about the Jets.  He knows the Jets beat his Patriots in the playoffs and gave credit to them with their post season success.  And yes the Jets have been successful in the post season.  They have won 4 playoff games in the last two years only losing in the AFC championship game.  Unfortunately way too many people cannot comprehend that not winning a Super Bowl does not make the team a failure.  Last year the Bears hosted the championship game.  Based on the talent they had and their record the season before their improvement was a huge success in 2010 and something to build off of.
