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."

The guys won exactly NOTHING and yet he's always mouthing people. He got the Jets into the playoffs as a wild card twice and thinks he's a superstar. Jacobs is right, Ryan should shut the hell up until he can actually accomplish something. Rings:Jacobs 1, Ryans Jets 0.

Rex Ryan does need to shut-up. His constant talking has got to be getting old in NY, wearing on and alienating people like his players, team management and the league. He may be a good coach but come one, shut your stupid mouth.

what you bloggers don't understand is that Rex was hungry and when you don't have your 9 or 10 meals a day it makes you irritable besides the best trash talking was in the parking lot between the two fan bases who have to GO HOME TO NEW JERSEY,STATEN ISLAND,QUEENS OR BROOKLYN imagine having to wake up there on Xmas Morning!!

I think we all know what kind of 'bag games' you like play. Don't click the link if you know the article is about two 'mediocre' teams.

 "He told me to shut the f--- up and wait until we win the Super Bowl."

I find this quote coming from Rex Ryan directed at Jacobs to be quite hilarious. Perhaps he should take his own advice.
