Jets Congratulate Giants With Full-Page Ad In New York Tabloid

Thanks mostly to the words of head coach Rex Ryan the New York Jets organization has had to eat a lot of crow since the team failed to make the playoffs in the just-completed season. The New York Giants fourth Super Bowl title was just the final insult.

Well, the Jets -- in a move that must make the bombastic Ryan cringe -- have taken out a full-page ad in the New York Daily News congratulating the Giants on defeating the New England Patriots in the 2012 Super Bowl. The ad reads as follows:

"Congratulations to the Mara and Tisch families, Jerry Reese, Tom Coughlin and the entire organization on winning Super Bowl XLVI. You played with passion and toughness, capturing a hard-earned and well-deserved championship."

In case you had forgotten, NFL.com reminds us exactly what Ryan wrote in his book, "Play It Like You Mean It."

"I have news for you: We are the better team. We're the big brother. ... 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."

Obviously, Rex stuck his foot in his mouth here. At least his bosses had the decency to acknowledge the Giants' accomplishment.
