(NEW YORK) — With both the New York Jets (8-6) and New York Giants (7-7) playing for more than just bragging rights of the city on Saturday, the trash talk continued on Wednesday, a day after Jets head coach Rex Ryan said his is the better team.
“I just say, regardless of the talk, it will be decided at one o’clock Saturday afternoon,” Giants coach Tom Coughlin said. “Regardless of what is said. Talk is cheap, play the game. That is the way I’ve always believed.”
And after that statement, would Ryan stay quiet? Of course not.
“That’s the old saying, ‘Talk is cheap, money buys whiskey,'” Ryan said at Jets practice. “I understand all that and that’s the truth. But I don’t care about Tom Coughlin or anybody else. I know how I believe. I don’t care what’s acceptable in everybody’s opinion. I really don’t care. I’m worried about my opinion and this is how I feel. Quite honestly, I don’t care what anybody thinks.”
Kickoff is set for 1 PM Eastern Time.
