    GIANTS' RUNNING BACK BRANDON JACOBS AND JETS' HEAD COACH REX RYAN HAVE PROFANE POST GAME EXCHANGE THAT IS LOW POINT IN RIVALRY

    "Brandon Jacobs had a
    lot of bitterness built up after a week of Rex Ryan disrespecting the
    Giants, and when Big Blue took back control of New York after loaning it to the
    Jets for two years, he didn’t attempt to hide his rage and engaged in some
    vicious name-calling.


    The Giants had enough of Ryan’s incessant trash talking last week and were
    incensed when the Jets, as is their custom for all home games, put a curtain up
    to hide the Giants’ four Super Bowl logos and three Vince Lombardi Trophies
    painted on the wall outside their locker room. The Jets players pass that wall
    on their way to their locker room from the parking lot and management doesn’t
    feel they should have to see it.




    Shortly after the Giants’ 29-14 victory — they will win the NFC East if they
    beat the Cowboys at MetLife Stadium on New Year’s night — Jacobs and Ryan came
    face-to-face around the 50-yard line and about 10 yards from the Jets
    sideline.




    Their mouths were only inches apart and their left shoulders were
    touching.




    “We had a private conversation,” Ryan said. “That’s all I’ll leave it as. He
    doesn’t like me. I respect him, but I couldn’t care less about him.”




    Jacobs provided quite a bit more detail about the confrontation.




    “He told me, ‘Shut the f--- up, wait until we win the Super Bowl,’ ” Jacobs
    said. “I told him I would punch him in the face. I told him that out of all
    these Giants on this football team, you’re talking to the wrong one.”




    At some point, Jacobs reportedly said to Ryan, “Time to shut up, fat
    boy.”




    Ryan, who was fined $75,000 earlier this season for cursing out a fan at
    halftime of a Jets home game against the Patriots, needs to learn to walk away
    from these situations. He’s in a position of authority and arguing with a player
    on another team is something that could catch the league’s attention.




    This brought the Jets-Giants rivalry to a new low.




    It was not clear how this all got started, but we know how it ended. Jacobs
    was fuming. He told ESPN on the field after his chat with Ryan that Ryan was a
    “disrespectful ***” and a “big-mouthed and big-bellied coach.”




    When Jacobs came into the interview room next to the Giants’ locker room
    about 30 minutes after the game, it didn’t take much to get him started.

    When he was asked what message he would send to Ryan, he said, “He needs to
    shut up. He’s a great coach, I take nothing away from him. He comes from a great
    coaching family, but he just needs to shut up.”


    The Giants obviously felt put off by Ryan saying the Jets were the big
    brother and the better team. The last two years, the Jets have been the better
    team. They went to two AFC title games. But the Giants have been to four Super
    Bowls, winning three of them, since the Jets’ only appearance nearly 43 years
    ago. They won their last title only four years ago.




    Jacobs claimed, “We didn’t really pay attention” to what Ryan had to say last
    week. “We knew that’s what we were going to get as soon as he had the
    opportunity to run his big, fat mouth. We knew that. That was a home game out
    there for us. We had more fans than they had.”




    The Giants took control of the game on a 99-yard touchdown from Eli
    Manning
    to Victor Cruz, the
    longest offensive play in Giants history. They were trailing 7-3 late in the
    second quarter when they had a third-and-10 from their own 1. Manning dropped
    eight yards deep in the end zone, looked to his left and then found Cruz to his
    right in between Kyle Wilson
    and Antonio Cromartie
    at the 11.




    Cruz broke Wilson’s tackle, sidestepped Cromartie and headed down the right
    sideline. Eric
    Smith
    dived at him at the 50 and couldn’t bring him down. Cruz cruised the
    rest of the way and then fired a fastball at the wall behind the end zone where
    the Jets hang their logos.




    “That was a little anger I had inside of me,” he said.




    Cruz felt Darrelle Revis
    disrespected him when he made it seem he didn't know who he was after Cruz made
    some statements about Revis last week that Cruz felt were misinterpreted as
    derogatory.




    Manning said his wife told him Friday about the story of the Jets using the
    picture of them pummeling him in the preseason game last year on their defensive
    playbook binder last week. “I didn't think anything of it,” Manning said. “I
    didn’t worry about it. I didn’t feel disrespected.”




    The Giants made it clear the Giants Way won out over the Jets Way. “It feels
    good to be a BIG brother,” Justin Tuck
    tweeted.




    And Jacobs piled on. “I knew they were going to fold no matter what, to be
    honest with you, the way they’ve been playing,” he said. “And who am I to talk
    about the way they’ve been playing? We haven’t played great.”




    As David Diehl, Lawrence Tynes and
    Zak
    DeOssie
    pulled back the curtain to show the Super Bowl and Giants logos
    after the game, Diehl shouted, “This is Giants Stadium!”




    Ryan admitted after the game the Giants are the better team this year.




    “I don’t care what he said,” Chris Snee said.




    For now, New York is a Big Blue town once again."
