Rex Ryan: Jets Are Giants 'Big Brother'

It figures that a Rex Ryan book would be full of the same bluster and balderdash that so many of the press conferences held by the New York Jets coach are. I guess no one should be surprised that Ryan takes some swipes at the New York Giants in his upcoming book "Play Like You Mean It."

"Some people like to say the Giants are the big brother team and the Jets are the little brother team. … I have news for you: We are the better team. We are the big brother." ...

"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 are sharing it with me. … 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."

Oh, Rex. Be quiet and go actually accomplish something.Or, better yet, just go right on talking and writing books without actually having done anything.

Give the Jets the last two years as they have made the AFC Championship Game and the Giants have not made the playoffs. The Giants are the ones with the rings on their fingers, and with history on their sides. No denying that the Jets are good, but until Rex can wave a ring in Tom Coughlin's face the Giants are still the Big Brother.
