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."

This is not a Jets thread. It involves the Giants as well, so it is a sports thread. And maybe if Rex didn't run his mouth and brag about nothing all the time, people wouldn't respond to him the way they do.

Category6. Hunter has really regressed following his strong performance in 2010 playoffs. OT opposite Brick is an obvious draft need. I do like Slauson at Guard however. A lot of the sacks aren't all on the OL. Sanchez holds onto the ball too fricking long !!!!!

Brian8Ball, I disagree with you saying the Jets shouldn't be ashamed. They absolulely should feel ashamed of the missed opportunities this season. This team is trying to win now and isn't in a rebuilding phase. I consider this season a huge disappointment. I take little solace in an 8-8 or 9-7 record given the money dished out to some players on this squad. The last 4 drafts have been underwhelming in the first round. Kyle Wilson was a big mistake. Wilkerson has been underwhelming too.

How do you know how much I weigh son ??? You've never seen me !!! How childish can someone be ?

One thing is for sure Brian. You need professional help. You can't do anything but make up lies and insult people about gender, weight, family, job, etc. I can get along with 99% of the people on this site. Even when I disagree with them. You can only get along with a handful of people. You challenge people to fights and then don't show. And then you try to blame them for not showing. I can disagree with anyone on this site other than you and it is soon forgotten. I don't repeatedly insult a person over and over. You make a living out of it.

Sanchez has his flaws...   but as a Jet fan my biggest dissapointment is how the O line has degraded

Wayne Hunter is not an NFL tackle.  Sanchez has taken some hellacious hits this year,  and while you can question his skills, you cant question his toughness.
