Giants Vs. Jets: Rex Ryan Responds To Tom Coughlin's Remarks

You can be forgiven for thinking that the New York Jets and the New York Giants were playing in the Super Bowl based solely on the level of trash talk happening this week. Giants head coach Tom Coughlin responded to Rex Ryan’s blustery about the Jets being a better team earlier in the week with a simple “talk is cheap” statement today. Ryan responded in kind, as he is wont to do.

Ryan defended his assertion in the face of Coughlin’s remarks at his Wednesday press conference.

That is the old saying. Talk is cheap, money buys whiskey. I understand all of that. You know, that’s the truth. I don’t care about Tom Coughlin or anybody else. I know how I believe. I don’t care if it’s acceptable in everybody’s opinion. I really don’t care. I’m worried about my opinion. This is how I feel. Quite honestly, I could care less what anybody thinks.

Both teams will have their backs up against the wall on Saturday. The Jets, at 8-6, are battling for a wildcard spot in the AFC. The Giants, at 7-7, have a tougher route to the playoffs, trailing Dallas by a game for the lead in the NFC East.

If the level of chatter ahead of this game is any indication, it should be fun.
