Rex Ryan Claims Jets are Superior Football Team in New York…Who Cares?

(USA TODAY) Just like when he speaks in public, New York Jets coach Rex Ryan is bold and brash and takes no prisoners in a new book set being published next week. “Play Like You Mean It” is Ryan’s new offering, and he uses it as a platform to reveal his thoughts on many of his own players and rivals, including the New York Giants and New England Patriots. On the crosstown Giants, long seen as the bigger team in New York: “When people ask me what it’s like to share New York with the Giants, my response is always, I am not sharing it with them — they’re sharing it with me,” Ryan said. “I know it’s going to piss off every Giants fan to hear this, but here you go: We are the better team. We are the big brother.” Ryan said the Jets would be better than the Giants for the next decade.

Doesn’t Rex Ryan realize that he lost all credibility last year when he guaranteed the Jets would win the Super Bowl? Sorry bro! No one cares about what you have to say. We know you’re going to guarantee championships even if you don’t have a championship caliber team. We know you’re going to try and stir controversy to get people riled up. But Rex, here’s the thing. Giants fans don’t give a fuck about the Jets. You want to claim you’re the big brother? Go ahead. Giants fans don’t listen to AFC coaches blabber during the offseason. This is just like saying Yankee fans hate the Phillies. In reality, Yankee fans don’t give a flying fuck. Have fun in the National League dude. The Yanks don’t even play the Phillies this year, so unless they meet in the World Series, I don’t care.

Back to Rex: Why does Ryan have the urge to say this about the Giants? I know that his father hated the franchise, but does he really have to sink this low? If you’re a Jets fan, you should feel embarrassed. This is like the JV team claiming they are better than the varsity cause they’ve had a better record the last two years. Maybe if Rex (or any member of the Ryan family) ever wins a Super Bowl, maybe I’ll consider taking him seriously.
