New York Jets’ Rex Ryan Takes Unprovoked Shot at Giants RB Andre Williams

The rivalry between the New York Giants and New York Jets in general tends to get rather chippy, especially when the two teams meat annually in their preseason MetLife Bowl game.

The rivalry and public shots through the media continued this week, as New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan decided to take a shot at rookie running back Andre Williams, who earlier in the week had said that the Giants were the real team of New York, especially since they have won two Super Bowls in the last eight years and in their last Super Bowl run, knocked off the Jets on Christmas Eve of 2011 to propel their Super Bowl XLVI run.

Ryan decided to take a rather unnecessary cheap shot at Williams when asked about his comments made on who was the real team of New York was.

The comment Ryan was referring to was when Clemson defeated Boston College 24-14 back in October of this past college season; Williams was part of the Boston College team who rushed for 70 yards on 24 carries in that game.

Williams though, was the leading rusher in the nation this past year with 2,177 yards and 18 touchdowns for Boston College and many consider the Giants selection of Williams to be one of the steals in the draft and Ryan's defense may find out first hand on Friday night why Williams has a lot of people talking about him this summer and heading into the regular season.

    At the moment, everyone on the Giants should just shut up as we are looking like a mighty bad team right now.
    Brag when you have something to brag about.

    I also don’t think Rex’s shot was unprovoked
    sounds like williams struck first unnecessarily
    and the shot wasn’t cheap either
    sounds factual — 70 yards on 24 carries is getting shut down
    and didn’t Rex’s son play for Clemson?

    all in all, a rather misleading article

    Looks like they are shuffling and Schwartz got a chance at RG

    From Graziano article
    “Coughlin continues to tinker with his offensive line. Right tackle Justin Pugh played some left tackle again Wednesday, for the second straight day. Geoff Schwartz, the presumed starting left guard, shifted to right tackle at one point, after playing some right guard Tuesday. The starting five, and their alignment, is far from set in stone.”

  4.  Nosh.0 says:

    At some point (like the day after Snee retired) they need to pick 5 guys and let them gel at their positions. Part of the reason last years line was so terrible is because there were new guys at new positions every week. Maybe aim for some continuity Tom. Or not. It’s only your job that’s at stake.

    •  James Stoll says:

      last year’s line stunk because all the starters were horrible before they got hurt; then they got hurt; and the back-ups were even worse; there simply was no talent to gel

      this year we theoretically have better talent that hopefully will gel
      we haven’t seen it yet
      let’s hope Friday gives us a glimpse of what might be possible

    Well, the best six are clearly Beatty, Pugh, Mosley, Walton, Schwartz and Richburg. So all they have to do is align them right. It’s a group with talent. VERY different from 2012-2013.

  6.  Dirt says:

    I always hear that the Jets allegedly have an inferiority complex regarding the Giants, but man do Giants fans get easily worked up about it or what?

    •  skinnydoogan says:

      Rex is a yo yo, everyone, including himself knows this. Not even noteworthy what he said (not directed at you Doug) Rex Ryan is his own biggest fan and will likely be looking for another job after another miserable failure of a season.

    •  Nosh.0 says:

      Yeah I don’t get the frustration with the Jets. For the most part I just feel sorry for their fans. The only time they ever bothered me was that little 2 year AFC title game run they went on and got a little too happy with themselves. Then Cruz took a pass 99 yards and they’ve been irrelevant since.

  7.  BBWC says:

    I think the jets run their mouths in an attempt to draw attention to the team. God knows they can’t draw attention from their play on the field.

  8.  James Stoll says:

    One thing that has not really been talked about this summer is how awful a camp Eli has had. I just read another practice report where once again Eli was erratic with plenty of ugly throws and INTs. Is it learning a new offense, the continuation of his last 24 game slump, or a steady decline in his physical abilities? Hard to know but no matter what else anyone does this season, if the Eli of the last 24 games is who shows up this year, the Giants are going nowhere but to the basement

  9.  Chayden Sovocool says:

    it wasn’t unprovoked williams says the giants are the real team of new york so when they asked rex about that, that was his response
