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."

As a Jets fan, Rex got what he deserved ! I was a Division 1 athlete myself and there was a code to keep your fire inside and not piss off your opponents. If Rex Ryan was an opponent, I'd want to beat his ass. Trashtalking doesn't intimidate me, certainly it doesn't intimidate the Giants. Rex got what he deserved. 2012 is a real crossroads for him. I do not believe Sanchez is good enough. Jacobs suggested that when he said Jets offense basically isn't that good. That's an indictment on Sanchez. Unfortunately, Rex and his stubborn pride for drafting Sanchez will ride this guy even if a better option is out there this offseason.

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.

I respect both guys.  However, Jacobs would beat the brakes of Rex.  I like seeing players and coaches getting into it, especially when the coaches start it. 

I don't respect Tubby and his chubby father and Fat Slob brother. They are all just blubbery white trash, loudmouth AHoles. The Jets are insignificant, aside something they did once, 43 years ago, and Tubby knows it, and that is why he runs his mouth. After next week, its all over--again--- just like the last 2 years. This is a sad, pathetic classless organization with no hope, especially with a trumped up, 2nd rate QB. This team has had way many more  losers (like Kotite, Gastineau, Sandchize, Blair Thomas, Revis, etc.,etc.) than winners like Ebanks and Namath over the years!!!!

Think what you want about Rex! Jacobs is a PUNK and always will be, if this came from Tuck, or someone who had a bit more class it would have been great. Jacobs os over-ratted and just out of his league. Bradshaw is what makes them go, not Jacobs who may want to look in the mirror, I have seen pear shaped lineman before but RB? Show up for everygame and maybe he would get more respect!!
I think that tubby Rex Ryan really sucks and Brandon Jacobs is bound for Canton. He has a ring and no Jet has one, aside , or WILL have one ever!!!!!!! 43 years and counting and NOTHING!!!!!!

First, I'm a giants fan... I must clearly state it... I also must state that Jacobs is a bit too loose lipped and nonsensical for my taste and at times I wish he'd just keep quiet. Having said that, 2 things puzzle me about the perception of him... 1) he's soft or doesn't run hard... The O-line has been in shambles all year and any back was seeming to have trouble getting the run game going... But when your game is plowing, it's even harder (ie, Jacobs).... 2) he's fat... I mean, this I just don't get... Please someone define to me what fat is (picture evidence would help) because I just don't see it when I see Brandon Jacobs. Is he Terrell Owens ripped, no... But "FAT", I just don't see it.

Have to totally agree with this post. Not a Giant Fan but a fan of class organizations like the Giants. If you must know, I am a Steelers Fan and last year when they (The Jets) tried some reverse psychology the week before the AFC Championship, you already knew they were going to lose! Nobody cares about "almost" getting there. Mr. Ryan should learn to be quiet and allowing Sancheez to throw 59x's, WTF? This was suppose to be the best team over the past 3yrs, and they will need some serious help to back-in to the playoffs.
