ROBJETS Icon : (16 November 2014 - 08:04 PM) With only two wild card spots I doubt they will even make the playoffs. They have to have a better record than the 49rs because they have the tie breaker over the Eagles. They also have the Seahawks who they need to beat to have a tie breaker plus they have two games against Dallas.

ROBJETS Icon : (16 November 2014 - 08:06 PM) odds are its going to be the 49rs or the Seahwaks getting the 2nd wild card spot and either the Packers or Lions getting the other
ganggreen2003 Icon : (16 November 2014 - 10:24 PM) I hate how the referees continue to help the CHEATriots
ganggreen2003 Icon : (16 November 2014 - 10:24 PM) they bow down to this classless organization week in week out
santana Icon : (16 November 2014 - 10:36 PM) they don't need help offense is scoring very easily
ganggreen2003 Icon : (16 November 2014 - 10:53 PM) they are still a classless organization who still gets special preferential treatment from the league and refs
ganggreen2003 Icon : (16 November 2014 - 11:03 PM) just like that last play when that goon gronkowski pretty much shoved that Indy DB right into the camera dolly...any other team or player does it, they eject them...but the CHEATriots just get a penalty
ROBJETS Icon : (17 November 2014 - 03:14 AM) I here you gg. I doubt they favor any team though. We just hate the Patriots so much every bad call we see that helps that team we remember. My only hope is when Brady finally retires or gets injured or whatever that the Patriots dont turn out like the Colts going from Manning to a qb like Luck. Can you imagine how us Jets fans would feel like then?
ROBJETS Icon : (17 November 2014 - 03:17 AM) It has to really suck for the other AFC South teams.
ROBJETS Icon : (17 November 2014 - 03:22 AM) I just hope the Cards can make it to the bowl and win with Stanton. He looks ok but after watching the game he isn't on the level of Palmer. Thats what worries me if they have to face a team we dont want in the Bowl from the AFC
Chaos Icon : (17 November 2014 - 12:15 PM) Stanton winning the SB would be something.
Chaos Icon : (17 November 2014 - 12:16 PM) Jets got rid of the guy to get Tebow lol
azjetfan Icon : (17 November 2014 - 06:19 PM) It's not the QB its the coach. I was screaming for Bruce Ariens
azjetfan Icon : (17 November 2014 - 06:20 PM) I was told he was a QB killer by some on here.
azjetfan Icon : (17 November 2014 - 06:20 PM) I was told his QBs hated him by some on here
santana Icon : (17 November 2014 - 06:22 PM) Everyone is against my amazing opinions!!!
santana Icon : (17 November 2014 - 06:23 PM) I'm the best driver on the east coast! Everyone else is terrible
ganggreen2003 Icon : (17 November 2014 - 06:52 PM) The biggest mistake was made today
ganggreen2003 Icon : (17 November 2014 - 06:53 PM) Stanton for $325 Mil
ganggreen2003 Icon : (17 November 2014 - 06:53 PM) after he got hit in the face who said he'll even be the same player ever again
ganggreen2003 Icon : (17 November 2014 - 06:54 PM) but the Marlins throw $325 million at him like nothing ever happened
ganggreen2003 Icon : (17 November 2014 - 06:55 PM) I predict he'll be a shell of himself and in 5 years he will be horrible player and the $ will still be weighing down the Marlins for the remainder of the contract
ganggreen2003 Icon : (17 November 2014 - 07:06 PM) 3 years ago I would of considered this kind of contract but after what happened to him this season and how he might be shocked to step into the batters box in 2015 is a HUGE risk when a team gives them $325 million
ganggreen2003 Icon : (17 November 2014 - 07:07 PM) these monster contracts are ridiculous to begin with
ganggreen2003 Icon : (17 November 2014 - 07:32 PM) So who thinks the JETS will win this Sunday?
a1elbow2.0 Icon : (17 November 2014 - 08:29 PM) Ryan is terrible after byes. 2-9
azjetfan Icon : (17 November 2014 - 10:22 PM) Titans may pull this one out!
azjetfan Icon : (17 November 2014 - 11:17 PM) Or not
azjetfan Icon : (17 November 2014 - 11:18 PM) Mettle burger a 6th rounder played better than Geno or Sanchez
ganggreen2003 Icon : (18 November 2014 - 05:34 PM) all these players that got cut today cause they bitched about touches
ganggreen2003 Icon : (18 November 2014 - 05:35 PM) Ben Tate, LaGarret Blount and Jason Avant
Jetsfan115 Icon : (Yesterday, 01:37 PM) aldaon smith did too, but he didn't get cut
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Yesterday, 06:51 PM) ALDAON SMITH
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Yesterday, 06:51 PM) TEH MILBER

Tomlinson: Rex Ryan joked about punching Bill Belichick 'in the face'

Patriots-Jets is Thursday night and while the enduring image of that rivalry may be last Thanksgiving's buttfumble, the matchup is usually much more competitive than that holiday shellacking was. In fact, Rex Ryan's teams usually square off against New England pretty well. And on NFL Network recently, former Jets running back LaDainian Tomlinson gave us some insight into one of Rex's motivational tactics.

Rex, per LT, once fired up the team by saying he would "set the tempo" by walking up to Bill Belichick and "punch[ing] him in the face."

"We were playing the Patriots one time," Tomlinson recalled. "As I mentioned, Rex is a master motivator, and it was going to be a big game, a heated rivalry game. Rex got in front [of] us and he said, 'I'm going to set the tempo today, I'm going to set the tempo when I meet Bill Belichick in the center of the field. I'm going to start it off and punch him in the face.'

"We loved that, I loved that from Rex."

Rex was joking. We think. Tomlinson was laughing about the story and obviously Rex was just looking to fire his crew up. But it's certainly a story that calls for a double take and confirmation.

"Yeah, he was motivating his guys and wanted to jump it off," Tomlinson said laughing. "We won [the game]."

In Tomlinson's discussion of Rex on NFLN he routinely mentions that Ryan is a "master motivator," but there's an interesting line that Ryan toes. Does his braggadocio cross into excessive chatter? Or do his players appreciate him covering up their flaws and concerns in public by routinely spouting off?

And is there some concern about having to back up the claims? The answer to the last question, according to Tomlinson, is often "yes."

"That was part of Rex growing up as a first-year coach, as a first-time head coach," Tomlinson said of Rex's infamous guarantees. "He didn't know obviously all of the things that need to happen as a head coach, and some things you can say and some things you cannot say. I credit that to him being a young coach, but absolutely there were times where we had to back up what Rex Ryan said. A couple of years he came out and said we were going to win a championship.

"We didn't really like that but as players we had to back it up."

The great part about Rex Ryan as a coach is he's got his players backs. Look no further than Mark Sanchez to get an idea of how far Rex will go to cover someone's hide. But the bad part about Rex is that he's spent considerable time with his mouth writing checks that his butt can't cash.

Rex has toned down his act a significant amount since his early days. Maybe that's because of concerns over his job or maybe he started learning lessons about what happens when you guarantee something and it doesn't happen.

The guess here is that he isn't long for New York -- though starting 1-0 isn't a bad way to shake off the critics -- but that he'll eventually end up getting a shot to run another team. Two AFC Championship Game appearances will do that for you. And it'll be fascinating to see how Rex approaches his players and the media in his eventual second go-round based off of what he learned at his current spot.

In the meantime Belichick should probably be careful at midfield on Thursday.
