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."

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!!

Wonder how it feels to be the little sister to the Giants in metro NY area?


Just ask the Jets. They arent wondering that, theyve always been little sister to the Giants. I'll tell you the main difference. Jets fans and the organization get excited about losing back to back AFC championship games. Giants fans and the organization get excited about Superbowl wins.
RIGHT ON!!!! NOW WHERE IS BRIAN8NOBALLS???????????

Rex's act is reminiscent of Ozzie Guillen's during his run in Chicago.   Even though everybody knew that Ozzie's behavior was annoying, when the team was winning everybody laughed and said that's just Ozzie being Ozzie.  When the club started losing those same people grew tired of the act.  The same is happening (or will happen soon) with Rex.


Ozzie brought a championship to Chicago. What has Rex done again? Oh yea, 2 AFC championship Losses. Impressive...  When you get excited about back to back big losses 2 years in a row then you know you have a problem.

Please explain hoe back to back Championship games and still alive this year is hurting his team???

No but worthless guarantess 1 after another and an average defense at best are sure hurting the team. Do you really want Rex Ryan coaching if he doesnt even have a good defense? Isnt this guya  defensive wizard? How do you not build a dominating defense when you have Revis to build it around?

Rex have anymore predictions on how good his team is or how they will make playoffs & win SuperBowl.  C'mon man......learn to shut up and try concentrating on getting a GOOD QB for your team in the future.


SPOT ON LARRY... The Jets will always be the litle sister to the Giants.. The coach acts like he is looking for attention by opening his LOUD mouth.   Hey REX we know you can run your mouth, what we also know is you CAN'T run a team... To bad you spend so much time tearing down your fathers good name.

Thank you Brandon.
Your professional restraint is evident, and should be rewarded.
At this point it is evident Mr. Commissioner that there is a series of problems with the soon ex-coach of the NYJ. When are you going to have the balls to act like a commissioner and clean up the game? Or are you too worried about oppressing players and taking the fun out of it?
No one is bigger than the game sir. And in the last two years, there is enough hard evidence to suggest that the game is way too big for you to effectively manage. This poster child for mandatory sterilization masquerading as a coach is going to actually do more damage to the game, the very thing you profess will not happen under your watch.
Four teams are 'under water'. Three team owners cannot field a competitive product, coaches that are insesitivie and indignant to any brand other than theirs, violence in a violent game that is no longer acceptable, scandals, labor disruption, insolvencies...

As the eminent President Bush so elegantly oted...Job Done. Well done Brownie.
