New York Jets coach Rex Ryan just can't resist taking jabs at the New York Giants. The Jets play the Giants NFC East rival Philadelphia Eagles this week and Ryan took a shot at the Giants when asked if they would punt away from Philly return man DeSean Jackson.
"I think there are people around here that might be able to answer that question better than us," Ryan said, obviously referencing Jackson's 65-yard game-winning punt return against the Giants on the final play of a 2010 game. "Let's face it, if he doesn't make that return, Green Bay [the Super Bowl champion] doesn't even go to the playoffs last year."
So, here is a question Giants fans. Are Ryan's never-ending jabs enough to make you do the unthinkable and actually root for an Eagles victory on Sunday? Both teams can't lose, so pick a side.
Also, remember that the Jets and Giants play each other in a week in a game that will have playoff implications for both teams. The buildup for that game might even be more fun than the game itself.
