TODAY IS NOT ABOUT THE M-E-T-S, IT’S ABOUT THE J-E-T-S

As a NY Football Giants fan, my main enjoyment this past weekend should be that the Dallas Cowgirls choked again in the NFL post season (how about a great big Kranepool Society  FUCK YOU to Jerry  Jones the owner of the Cowgirls and how about that fat fuck Flozell Adams, left a playoff game with a boo-boo on his calf, fucking coward!) but in fact I am actually happy with the Jets winning yesterday in San Diego.

The Giants fans-Jets fan relationship is strange by New York sports fan standards. As a NY Ranger fan, I hate the Icelanders immensely (da-da-da-dada da-da-da-dada da-da-da-dada da-da-da POTVIN SUCKS!!!!!!!!!!!)  and as most local hockey fans, I’m blasé about the K.C. Scouts/Colorado Rockies/NJ Devils. They only player well known in Newark is their over weight and overrated goaltender. As a Boston Cletics fan the good thing about having the Knicks and Nets around is I get to see the C’s in person four times a year. As for the Bronx Bastards, the hatred between us and them is well documented. But as far as Giants-Jets fans go, we just go about our business come football season.

I got wrapped up the Jets game yesterday because the style of football they play is the antithesis of what the NFL is all about these days and a style I love. It’s all about spread offenses and quarterbacks throwing 35 times a game Wildcat formation (which is a basic Pop Warner offense) and high flying wide outs and games in domes under controlled climates but then here come the Jets with a page out of” simple still works” playbook. Pound the ball on offense, control the clock, have your QB mange the game and not have to make a big play, then on defense attack the line of scrimmage like a jail break and make the QB as uncomfortable in the pocket as you can, hit the wide outs hard early to get them out of their rhythm  . Add in a few turnovers and you have a wining formula.

During the season Jets coach Rex Ryan annoyed me with his big mouth and bluster. The reason being I was so used to the Same Old Jets who are great in April on Draft Day and then again in August in games that don’t count in the standings but then come the regular season, well Same Old Jets. But Ryan has taken that Same Old Jets stigma and turned it into a positive, a rallying cry. Last night on the SNY Jets Post Game show the played a clip of Ryan and his team in their jubilant locker room. Ryan gathered his team around him and said something that has converted me to be a Rex Ryan fan:

“ok fella’s listen up, great game today, great effort and you should be proud of everything you’ve accomplished so far. But tomorrow the headline in the papers will be THREE FIRST PLACE TEAM ADVANCE……..AND THE FUCKIN’ JETS”

With that his players roared in delight. This is Rex Ryan’ team  and the story of the Jets season so far is an unbelievable one and as crazy as this sounds from a Giants fan, I hope they win the Fuckin’ Super Bowl.

  1. I wish I could be like that. As a Giants fan, I can’t root for the Jets. But I know many Mets brethren are Jets fans, so I’m neutral and just enjoying the playoffs. Ryan is quite the Mets fan, himself. He was at Citi and KB talked to him in the stands. Said when his dad coached the Jets he became a Mets fan, so there’s a positive. Also, Mangold claims Mets loyalty, so they’re not all that bad.

  2. And, yes, seeing the Cowboys lose was all the happiness I needed from the playoffs. That tool Jerry Jones someday has to realize he has no business being on the sidelines. Get up in the box, Mr. Botox. Your self-proclaimed America’s Team has gone down in falmes once again! Yes!

  3. and why not give the J-E-T-S a little love Mets/Giants fans? We Mets/Jets fans certainly gave you all a lot of love when you ruined the New England Traitors “Perfect Season”. Remember, the Enemy of my Enemy is my Friend except for the Dallas Cowgirls and Cry Baby Farve.

  4. Rich/Krane, As a Giants’ fan myself, I have absolutely no problem rooting for the Jets. It is the Cowboys/Redskins & Eagles that I hate, passionately. And yet, those pricks (okay, just one old one) actually made me almost feel bad for the Cowboys yesterday. I will be rooting hard for the Saints, next Sunday. My brother-in-law is a huge Jets’ fan, and having him watch the game at my house yesterday was better than actually watching the game itself. I have not watched what would be the equivalent of an NBA game (48 minutes) since Drazen Petrovic was killed. As for the hockey version of the evil empire (NY Dolans) I dislike them, a lot, but not nearly as much as I hate the Flyers. And while I hate those obnoxious Highlander fans (we all know the type…we are entitled to every all-star and World Series) there are teams I hate more…Braves, Phillies, Cubs, Cardinals, Giants (i.e Chris Russo) & the actual Dodgers (not the ones that the Wilpons are trying to make the Mets into.

    Jets’ fans, enjoy the ride, you are among the best fans around and deserve the ride. Hell, maybe I will even get another side show from my brother in law…maybe even two.

    This Giants fan was glued to the set yesterday, screaming and yelling for the best player in the NFL this year, Darrelle Revis, and those gutty, battling Jets. The only team left that plays REAL football. Not that pansy pass-every-down game. And can we relax the pass interference rules a little bit? This isn’t the girly NBA for God’s sake. The DBs should be able to at least touch the other guy.

    It is weird that Mets fans loath the Highlanders, but most Giants fans that I know like the Jets as well. I moved to Toms River awhile ago where New York is equidistant from Philly, and there are enough Eagles (and Phillies) fans here to hate that Jets fans are nearly brothers. Or at least distant cousins.

  6. I’m a rabid Mets/Giants fan and I’m rooting HARD for the Jets. While I don’t follow the exploits of our former roomies, I enjoy it when they do well. I’d love to see one more celebration in the old swamp…even if it is green and not blue.
