Peyton and Eli fan

Classy Jets

Recommended Posts

I always find it so interesting how fans throw around the word classy in one of the more violent sports we have in this country. I just find it an odd mix that fans want their players especially the defenders, tough, aggressive, mean, and violent, but then act appalled when things are not "classy."

I can't wait until the Jets lose/don't make the playoffs and people question Rex on his preseason guarantee of "We will win the Super Bowl this year". Not with Mark Sanchez and your slightly above average defense and running game

Jets aren't going to win with Sanchez. That is how the Jets always roll. Sub-par QBs throughout their history. Joe Namath wasn't even a good QB. No HoF QB should have more interceptions than touchdowns.

He only made it because of his guarantee. If you ask me, he is very overrated

I seen a report where he said he didn't guarantee it. He just went along with it. It was a news cast or something, but it was only ran once.

Hah, nice job Giants sticking it to the face of the Jets. Look like the Jets were just as expected, all hype, all bark and no bite.

Ha. Jets actually took the trouble to put a curtain up over the Giants' superbowl logo outside their lockeroom. Tynes and Jacobs took the curtain down and the Jets put it back up with security to protect the curtain from the Giants removing it again.

Anyway, Jets aren't out of it, but need a lot of things to go their way.

While I am very happy that the Giants won, it's not a good move on Jacobs' part to say what he did. You won, let it go, move on

I'm happy. I don't know what he said but the two NY teams fighting is a good thing. And anytime you get in Rex's face.:>

If I were Coughlin, I wouldn't be happy about what Jacobs did/said

lol....big man starting a fight with a 50 year old man. Perhaps he should get tough and jump into the stands and whoop an old lady for heckling him too?

It doesn't matter how much money some of these guys have, the street punk always comes out. You can take a player out of the ghetto, but you can't take the ghetto out of the player.

Maybe classy was the wrong word. Disturbing might be better

Yes it's a violent sport but that kind of crossed the line into blood thirsty don't you think?

True.

How are coaching staffs supposed to teach their players not to lead with the helmet or hit defenseless receivers, while glorifying the drawing of blood? A picture of the Giants slamming Eli is one thing, but the grotesque closeup of a gushing head wound is a bit over the top.

I just watched it. I approve even more. Ryan asks for it with his big mouth. You reap what you sow. Players don't like that kind of talk. And he said it again.."just wait until we win the SB. My gosh..the proverbial kid mouthing off over and over after each failure. If they had won the first time he mouthed off...well I guess you can say they backed it up. But this is what the 3rd year.

I suspect some of his own players might be tired of it.

Thats not motivation by a coach always yapping how we're going to win the SB. I bet some players around the league are quietly glad someone told him off.

Players just don't like that kind of talk and is why the Patriots are told to shut up..like most teams do.

I agree with you. Personally, I am very happy someone told him off. But if I was Coughlin, I wouldn't be happy. As an external fan, I'm fine with it and in fact, I love to see it. If I was someone working internally with the Giants, I wouldn't want to see it happen with my players

Yeah BB would be livid if one of our players did that. Just glad it was someone else:)

Ryan's already succeeded in some way, in that he's made the Jets relevant in NY again. A few years back, the Giants wouldn't have gone out of their way to get involved in a peeing contest like this with the Jets' head coach. But he does need to tone it down when talking about Super Bowls and that kind of thing.

He didn't ask to go to the HOF.....

He just wanted a kiss

    • This either tells me that they are making a lot plays or people are getting to our next level with ease.  The way our DLine played this year, it's probably the latter.     I'm proud of these guys.  Once we get our Dline straight, we'll see them elevate to another level.
    • UNFAIR comparison.   We literally lost our franchise player the week before Game 1 of the season.
    • Maybe.  Just thinking for myself.  If I was a ticket holder, I'd be more interested in investing in the ground level of a team that had a new young QB and to be a part of their growth.  Our own LA team.  A true LAC rather than a leftover SD QB who didn't want to be here or a leftover NE QB who's here just because of personal reasons.  Herbert's a west coast native too.  Just thinking about where I would place my allegiances. 
    • Eason, Fromm, and Tua were not available to be evaluated during SB week, so its an Incomplete for them through 1/26/2020.    I guess Burrow had a good season and is the consensus #1 pick.  Nobody has suggested that he might be available for the Colts, so I really haven't looked at him much.  Based on the QBs I paid attention too:   Herbert Love Gordon.   Herbert is a plug in day 1 starter right now, and can learn on the job.  Love and Gordon need some developmental work on how to play the game, IMO, and will cost a team too many games if inserted day 1 at this point in their development.  Gordon is probably ahead of Love at this point in terms of day 1 readiness, but might be held back due to physicality issues.  I'm not too interested in Gordon.   The combine will tell us more, and either assuage or enhance physicality concerns for the QBs.
