"I talked to an advance scout that told me if Joey Votto and Albert Pujols were on the same team he'd advise his team to do the unthinkable...pitch around Votto to get to Pujols." - Buster Olney, ESPN

In my opinion, the fact that The Jets ended up winning doesn't really make what Welker said any less funny.
The Jets are a bunch of mouthy guys and their coach probably has the biggest mouth of them all. Even if they end up winning the Super Bowl I'll still think they're a loathe-able bunch.
Rexy should learn that if you like to run your mouth, people are going to be extra mean when something embarrassing such as foot fetish tapes surface about you. It's to be expected.
I root for the Jets to lose every game. Because they act like immature punks... from the head coach to the conditioning/strength coach. And of course not all of their players act this way, but they get dragged down into the punk-hole b/c of their teammates and coach.
Small market fan... always hoping, but never expecting.
This week the Jets are doing nothing but throwing bouquets at Pittsburgh talking about how great they are, even though a couple of Steelers already have talked about how they were rooting for the Jets to beat NE.

The way the Jets act is a microcosm of why I don't really like football all that much.
I think all the chest thumping macho BS is stupid.
Get your nunchucks and the keys to your dad's car. I know where we can get a gun
Absolutely love Rex Ryan and the Jets. There's nothing like talking trash and saying your gonna beat another team down, and then doing just that. I hope the Jets win next week and Rex and his players have a field day at the Super Bowl media day.

I despise the Jets and have even before Rex was head coach. I normally wouldn't have any problems with PIT winning but what Roethlisberger did was reprehensible and I hate to see good things happen to him.
That said, Rex is good for the NFL. In a league devoted to blandness and homogeny he certainly stands out. He's like the classic wrestling heel in that he doesn't care about being loved and all he is interested in is getting a reaction and winning.
