Brandon Jacobs to Rex Ryan: “It’s time to shut up, fat boy”
The Jets-Giants trash talk didn’t end after the Giants win on Saturday. According to multiple reports, Brandon Jacobs and Rex Ryan got into a yelling match after the game.
Jacobs said that Ryan went after him “The way his pops went after [Kevin] Gilbride.”
Nice recall by Jacobs there, although it sounds like Jacobs may have tried to provoke Ryan.
Mike Garafolo of the Newark Star-Ledger writes that Jacobs told Ryan, “It’s time to shut up, fat boy.”
Jacobs’ version of the events to reporters was a little different. But not by much.
“I told him to shut the f--- up,” Jacobs said via the New York Daily News. Ryan then told him “Go f--- yourself.”
In Jacobs’ view, “Rex Ryan is a disrespectful bastard. The Jets have a big mouth, big belly coach that talks too much.”
Meanwhile, even Giants public relations director Pat Hanlon got into the act after the game.
“Again, to our hosts. . . sorry about the mess we left behind. We’ll clean it up later. We have a big game in ‘your’ house this week,” Hanlon wrote on Twitter.
Ah, Christmas time in New Jersey. Feel the holiday cheer.
