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.
