    Look Ahead: Patriots v. Jets

    This weekend the New England Patriots will be back in the Meadowlands to take on the NY Jets with Tom Brady under center for the first time in over a year and they will be ready. The team isn't talking much, because as is usual with this team, they let the opponents run their hole for the run up to the game and they will do their talking on the field.

    As if Tom Brady and company needed more bulletin board material, let's revisit some of the ridiculous statements that Rex Ryan has made about the New England Patriots in his first off season of his career with the Jets. He obviously came in with the intention to stir the pot.

    "I never came here to kiss Bill Belichick's rings," Ryan said Wednesday in an interview on WFAN. "I came here to win, let's put it that way.... I'm certainly not intimidated by or anybody else."

    “People think that New England, well this is a win for them,” Ryan said. “Oh, yeah? They’ve won eight in a row at the Meadowlands. So, you’ve got all that information. You’ve got that history, but I’m not conceding anything. I promise you, we are going to give everything we have, and I’m sure New England is going to give everything they have. If they don’t, that’s fine with me. But at the end of the day, we’ll see who the better team is right now.

    “And again, I have a lot of confidence in our football team.”

    "We will hit him more than six times (like Buffalo did). I promise you that," Rhodes told the N.Y. Daily News. "I'm sure if somebody is around his leg, or he feels pressure below, he's not going to step into his throw."

    Tom Brady, in his usual Tom Brady way, dismissed all the chatter, saying "talk is cheap."

    If the Patriots come out and play the way they did in the second half against the Bills on Sunday they will likely come home with their ninth win in a row at the Meadowlands, but if they play like they played in the first half against the Bills, the streak might be in danger.

    One thing is for sure, you won't hear any talk from the Patriots organization, but you might...from their fans.

    GO PATS!!

    I think with or without Mayo, this is going to be a tough game in the Meadowlands. The rivalry is enough to get both sides hyped up without the trash talking. As any great fan I'm pulling for the Pats to win, but I must say that I am impressed with the Rex Ryan has done with the Jets. I just hope Ryan brings his chapstick so he can get ready to kiss Belichick's rings.
