Sunday night was supposed to be the crowning of the Jets as the new AFC East power. The Patriots were dead (long live the Patriots!) and the Jets were coming on strong. Except, it turns out, everyone lost their short-term memory and the Pats blew out the Jets 37-16, reminding everyone, as Mike Freeman wrote, that the AFC East isn't all that different just yet.

So will the Jets still win the Super Bowl? Well, they should probably try and win the division first, which is something that Rex Ryan doesn't see happening.

"It looks doubtful right now," Ryan said Sunday after the game. "What am I going to say? Maybe I should guarantee the fact that we’re out of it. The last time I did that, we made the playoffs. Yeah, we don’t have a chance."

Before Sunday, we noted that the trash-talking was suspiciously missing from the Jets for Patriots week, and we speculated that it was because Ryan knew he had a chance to really flip the tables in the AFC East. That was correct, because Ryan was clearly devastated by Sunday night's loss.

"We wanted to win this game in the worst way," Ryan said, unprompted, to open his press conference Sunday night.

Bill Belichick said nothing before the game about the importance of this win, but his actions near the end make it pretty clear it was important to him too. As we noted in the podcast, Sunday night was one of the best coaching efforts of Belichick's career and he and Tom Brady just so happened to break the record -- previously held Dan Marino and Don Shula -- for most wins by a quarterback and coach combo.

Week 10 Wrapup

Belichick was seen parading around the Pats sideline, slapping high-fives with backups and, in what's a pretty rare event, smiling after a victory. Oh, and there's this -- apparently he had some colorful words for Rex's crew. Brian Costello of the New York Post reports that Belichick dropped a vulgar little phrase towards the other sideline following the win.

"Thirty-seven points on the best defense in the league, s--- my d---," Belichick reportedly said.

Um, yeah, so that's probably not technically appropriate, and I'm sure we'll hear about this if/when the Jets and Pats meet in the postseason (it's kind of inevitable right?) and it'll probably turn into a big scandal or something. But anyone who's heard Belichick miked up knows this isn't all that surprising.

Besides, for now let's just enjoy the ridiculousness of a 60-year-old man running to midfield and screaming that at his opponent, as well as the silence from Rex.

Belichick mocks Jets D, Rex despondent over loss

I would like to see these two thin skins put on the gloves and trunks, go between the ropes and go fifteen rounds.  Past pro football  head coaches like Allen, Lombardi, Landry, Shula and Noll probably did not care for each other and they probably did not exchange Christmas cards.  If they did mouth off at each other they did it outside of the public eye.   After a loss, the hall of fame coaches above did what everyone else should do:  keep your heads down, keep moving and get off the field.  Nothing good comes of staying on the field after a loss.

Will Brinson is a liar. Belichick said something to his son. He did not scream anything at his opponent.

SLANDER - First, it's sad that CBS Sports doesn't have first hand knowledge of what Bilichick said, using the weasel words, "reportedly said." Second, the average scoring defense for NFL's 32 teams is 22 points; San Francisco, 8/1, leads the league, ceding only 15 points a game. The N.Y.Jets, 5/4, give-up 22 points a game and New England, 6/3, likewise gives up 22 points a game - making them both average. The Jets coaching staff should go look in the mirror for the solution to, "How to win the big ones!", and Coach Bilichick's stock value just went in the tank if his "reportedly said" epithet is true .. Blessings, y'all, Jed

Hey Jets and Rex....if you're gonna talk the talk, you better walk the walk. Any trash talker knows that! So don't be crying like a little beee-atch because your beloved defense was humiliated by your arch nemesis. Don't forget they actually have won Super Bowls while your Jets have imaginary "promised" super bowls to go along with your San Diego Charger Lombardi trophies. Bottom line dude, you will never win a Super Bowl with Snachez.

Boise State was a good game, they lost and now you move on. Thursday the Jets will probably throttle the Bronco's but that won't stop me from cheering for them, and in the AFC West, that will hardly end the Broncos season
