JETS MISS GIANTS WITH COVER UP OF GIANTS' SUPER BOWL LOGOS AT STADIUM
"Yapping at the New York Giants during the week
wasn't enough for the Jets.
Coach Rex Ryan's team stepped up the tactics hours before their New York metropolitan area showdown at MetLife Stadium by
putting black curtains in front of the Giants' four Super Bowl logos outside
their locker room.
Giants kicker Lawrence Tynes and
running back Brandon Jacobs both
removed the curtains, only to have a Jets official move them back in front of
the logo. A security guard was put in front of the curtains to prevent further
"They just decided to cover the logos," Giants co-owner John Mara said.
When asked if the Jets might have taken the higher road, Mara smiled.
"No comment," he said.
The Jets said it was simply their standard practice as those logos are
covered for every one of the team's home games, regardless of opponent, because
it is the players' entrance.
Hall of Fame quarterback Joe Namath, who hasn't been
afraid to criticize Ryan and Jets, liked his former team's move, tweeting during the game: "Anything to get under the opponent's
skin...all's fair on gameday!"
Because it's a Jets home game, they control the displays seen in the stadium,
which is co-owned by both teams. Both end zones had the Jets' logo, and the
MetLife logo was lit in green."
