Return Of The Jet-I: Jets Vs Patriots Trash Talk Is Fun

The Eagles are out, but the NFL playoffs do continue to roll on and those of us here in Philly need to find something to enjoy this weekend... So I nominate Jets vs Patriots. While Steelers vs Ravens is undoubtedly the better on-field rivalry, nothing comes close to Jets vs Patriots off the field. The rhetoric between the two teams this week has been off the charts. The characters on each side make it almost inevitable that the talk would bubble over. Jets coach Rex Ryan is a blustery loudmouth who lives for attention and headlines. Tom Brady, while the best QB in the game, is a complete and total jerk who loves to trash talk other teams and seems to take everything as a personal insult. Of course, the Jets were happy to make personal insults to Brady this week with Antonio Cromartie calling him an "a-hole" this week. Patriots WR Wes Welker even got in several jabs at Rex Ryan's apparent foot fetish.

The teams were the only ones talking trash this week... The local NY and Boston papers got in on the act as well and might I say... Bravo! Two very funny covers. Rex Ryan as Han Solo has to take the cake...
