“It seems clear that right now we are the better team and we are going to remain the better team for the next 10 years. Whether you like it or not, those are the facts, and that’s what is going to happen…We are going to take over the town whether the Giants like it nor not, so those fans on the fence that like both teams are going to be Jets fans in the end. The truth is, if I am going to watch one game, I am going to see the Jets, without a doubt. We are better.”
Rex Ryan began stirring the pot on the Christmas Eve Jets vs. Giants match-up way back in the summer when his book was released. He hasn’t slowed down recently either with his comments yesterday to the media about refusing to be the Giants little brother and reiterating his belief that the Jets are the better team. Outside of Ryan’s words, the crosstown rivalry and all the hype that comes with that, this is basically serving as a near elimination game for two team’s playoff hopes. You couldn’t have written a better script.
