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."

Why does the media continue to give Ryan all this coverage? He's nothing but a classless tub of lard with a big mouth and nothing of significance to prove he is a good coach. Yeah, yeah, all you Jets fans will no doubt bash me, but you'll see I'm right soon enough when this charade continues year after year. 

Oh, Rex, BTW, the phrase is "I couldn't care less". What a tool.

If the NFL wants to prevent this in the future, it should consider the original idea of a downtown stadium for the Jets.  The largest market in the NFL with two teams cannot afford another staium?  Poppycock!
Maybe the Jets do not have enough fans to warrant their own stadium.

what's amazing is that the jets are owned by the same family that owns J&J.  That company has been known for being a class standard in the corporate world.  how is it that the team they own is so classless.  their coach is a jerk, their players talk so much crap, and then their management decides to cover up our championship banners in our stadium.  note to jets fans: it will always be giants stadium.  you will always be the team that borrows it when we are on the road.  just accept it.  
J&J is a master at marketing. Johnson knew that the Jets were insignificant with a losers label, so he hires Tubby big mouth to attempt talk the world into believeing that the jets are significant, with a mediocre team. However, at the end of the day, the only road to significance is winning a championship. Now that Tubby embarrased the entire organization, Johnson will use him as a scapegoat and make him crawl under the rock he came from, and start all over again. Its all about marketing and perception!!!!!
What do you think the jet fans are going to do with all those Sandchez jerseys that Johnson convinced the sad fans to purchase, when they dump him next year. Maybe wash the car with them?????

It's Christmas and it is nice to see everyone spending time with their families and exchanging season's greetings and pleasantries with their brethren on this thread.  Rex and Brandon were probably dicussing what they plan to do today.

Rex is the coach and the alleged more mature of the two.  He should act like a leader, say nothing other than congrats and get off the field.  Why stir the pot?  The trash talking is funny when you are winning.  When you lose, it makes you sound like a sniveling whiner and could cost you your job.

As for Jacobs and the Giants, they should grow up and recognize that the Jets were the home team and they can cover the championship banners.  There is probably something about that in their agreement to share the stadium.

If the NFL wants to prevent this in the future, it should consider the original idea of a downtown stadium for the Jets.  The largest market in the NFL with two teams cannot afford another staium?  Poppycock!

Rex Ryan is a great coach (at least as a DC...not sure about as a HC), but he shows very little class when he boasts all week, then loses, then can't take the come-backs that always come in that scenario. What he should have said is something along the lines of, "Nice game Brandon, you got us today big guy. We'll get you next time. Good luck from here on out." He should have said something similar to Coach Coughlin and any Giant player who crossed his path.

When does the fatboy job watch start? The Jets are going nowhere with The fatboy and Sanchez as QB. They are a team that is getting older by the month and no better. There window of opportunity is pretty much up with this group. Cut you loses Jets and there is still a chance to get Bill Cower and dump the classless fatboy. I'm not a Jets fan so I hope you stick with the fatboy to the bitter end and it will be bitter you can be sure of that.
