Rex Ryan and B. Jacobs had a confrontation after the game today (US Presswire).

By Josh Katzowitz

As we all know, Rex Ryan loves to talk trash. Sometimes, it works for the Jets. Sometimes, it doesn’t. Today, during his squad’s 29-14 loss to the Giants, it didn’t work at all. And Giants running back Brandon Jacobs was happy to tell Ryan exactly what he thought about him afterward.

B. Jacobs and Rex Ryan yelling at each other (US Presswire).After the game was complete, Ryan and Jacobs had a verbal altercation in which cursing from both sides was exchanged and an insulting “fat boy” was thrown around by Jacobs.

According to Jacobs, via Newsday, he did nothing to provoke Ryan, but Jacobs certainly felt the need to defend himself once the two met during postgame handshakes.

"I didn't say too much to him," Jacobs said. "He told me to shut the f--- up and wait until we win the Super Bowl, and I said I would punch him in his face . . . I told him, 'Out of all of these Giants football players on the team, you're talking to the wrong one.'"

Then, apparently, Ryan told Jacobs to go “f--- himself.” Later Jacobs said that Ryan had a “big, fat mouth.”

Aside from the acrimony about the Jets’ trash-talking (though Giants receiver Victor Cruz did some of his own this week), was the report that the Jets, who were the home team, placed black curtains over the Super Bowl championship logos that were painted on the walls of the New Meadowlands. Those curtains are there for all Jets home games, but the Giants thought that the move was disrespectful. Ryan was asked afterward about his confrontation with Jacobs.

"We had a private conversation," he said. "That's all I'll leave it as. Whatever. He doesn't like me. I respect him, but I could care less about him."

Mr. Jacobs, we’ll give you the last word.

"You need to shut up," Jacobs said. "That's that. He's a great coach, comes from a great coaching family, but he needs to shut up."

Running your mouth off about your opponent, before or after the game is a coaching tool that works....SOMETIMES. When you do it day in and day out, week in and week loses it's ability to inspire anyone but the other team. And shame on them for blacking out the Superbowl logos - that was just class-less. You know, much like Ryan himself.

It's refreshing to finally hear a player tell Ryan to shut the hell up. Jokes are better left for comedians to tell, threats are better left to bullies, and empty promises are better left to politicians. Ryan is neither one of those. He's simply a big fat loser without the excercise regimen.  After this Sunday's game his players will hang up their cleats, hopefully he hangs up his mouth.

As soon as the New York Jets fire this joke of a poor excuse for a football coach, I will become a fan.

Keep spouting off about those two straight AFC title games, which were losses, by the way, and keep saying you're the better team even AFTER you lose to an opponent.  It's very, very endearing to a long-suffering fanbase, I'm sure.

No wait, they want you to WIN something, not show what a complete @$$ you are week in and week out.

I'm a huge Jets fan, both Jacobs ,and Rex went over the line,but at the same time spoke the the truth both called the other (Jacobs he is a good coach but need to shut his mouth, Rex I respect Brandon but don't care about him But nor should he) nothing terribly wrong with the first half of each comment but both needed to add a jab at the end not the first or the last, outside of the jabs both are correct in there assessment. Rex has a chance to redeem himself with a FULL offseason something his teams need, his system is complicated and will take some time to learn in the offseason with some new acquisitions on the D side of the ball, and hopefully a new O coordinator who can bring the best out in Mark.

Just an outsider looking in, I'm not a NY fan in either conference.   but I've gotta add a little perspective:  After Jacobs has "graduated" from pro football, and coached a few years in the NFL, he may be validated in his opinion.  Until then, he has neither the qualifications, nor the priviledge to stand toe to toe with an NFL coach, Rex Ryan or otherwise... 'What's his name' Jacobs is the ONE who needs to shut his mouth.  I hope someone shuts it for him.

Players play and coaches coach....Ryan should spend more time coaching up his team instead of in front of the media shooting his mouth off and making empty promises about superbowl victories.  It's one thing to show that amount of confidence to your team in the locker room but to put it out there for moviation against your opponent is just bad coaching.  Acting like going to two straight AFC championship games gives you the right to proclaim your team "New York's Best" is a joke....especially when the other NY team is only 4 years removed from one of the most dramatic superbowl wins in history.  Blacking out the Giants Superbowl championship wonder why Jacobs called Ryan out.  Maybe the Jets should have asked Buress how well that was going to go over.  It was a huge sign of disrespect to do that and you can't fault any of the Giants players for confronting Ryan after his comments. Ryan obviously is not too bright mouthing off to Jacobs nor does it show any class no his part acting like a sore loser. But I will say this about Ryan...if anything his antics are sure entertaining....especially when he loses.

This just in on CBS Sports:

For the first time in his career, quarterback won’t be playing in an AFC title game after the knocked their city rivals out of the postseason on Saturday. Now, there’s a report that the Jets are questioning whether Sanchez is actually the team’s quarterback of the future.

That’s the word from , which reports that the Jets are internally asking themselves whether Sanchez is the right answer for them.

Almost from the moment Sanchez entered the league as a No. 5 overall pick in the 2009 draft, he’s been the subject of criticism from media and fans, and though he’s been impressive during the past two postseasons -- especially in road games -- his regular-season performances have been spotty.

So what is the other Option.BRUNELL
Maybe Brunell is the answer. Sandchize SUCKS!!!!! Don't be suprised if Tubby Kotite + 50 lbs pulls Sandchize if he throws more than one INT pr Pick 6 in the first half against Miami. The whole house of cards is crumbling!!! Tubby blames Sandchize, Johnson blames Tubby, Sandchize and Tubby disappear and the Jets enter rebuild mode again!!!!!

43 years and counting!!!!!!

No one gives a rats a** what you do on christmas, or any other day for that matter. Angry???? Nah, my team embarrassed your team yesterday, i'm as happy as a clam. Your team sucks, and the rest of the world loves your misery and pain. In fact it was quite a joyous holiday thinking how Tubby Kotite + 50 lbs is eating crow all weekend instead of the fat christmas goose. Oh Wait, Tubby IS the fat goose. And you are just a pathetic f*dgepacking stool pusher. And you WERE warned already for trolling. However, this is a NY GIANTS thread. The Jets are insignificant now, as they have been for a while, like:
