Rex Ryan says Jets would have beaten Packers in Super Bowl XLV

Rex Ryan, Mike Tannenbaum, Muhammad Wilkerson AP

To little surprise, Jets coach Rex Ryan’s gift of gab translates well to the written word.

In his new book, Play Like You Mean It: Passion, Laughs and Leadership in the World’s Most Beautiful Game, Ryan applies a twist to his habit of predicting that the Jets will win any and every future Super Bowl by declaring that, if the Jets had advanced to Super Bowl XLV, they would have emerged victorious.

“I thought Green Bay was to going to have the upper hand on Pittsburgh,” Ryan writes, via Bob Wolfley of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.  “Their passing attack was giving everyone problems.  But I truly believe we would have beaten Green Bay.  We only lost to them 9-0 during the season, and we gave them two of the field goals because of mistakes.”

We’re starting to wonder why the NFL even bothers to play the games.  Just declare the Jets to be the champions of all past and future Super Bowls and be done with it.

Actually, given the manner in which the 2011 offseason has unfolded, that might not be a bad approach.

    this fat windbag wont learn till hes out of the league

  2. obxastronaut says: Apr 30, 2011 12:18 PM

    Yeah… and Rex weighs 100 pounds…

  3. njdevil7 says: Apr 30, 2011 12:18 PM

    What do you expect him to say? You want him to say they were going to lose?

  4. clawledge says: Apr 30, 2011 12:19 PM

    I hope Rex Ryan gets a chance to play the Packers in Super Bowl XLVI just to prove him wrong again.

  5. myasylum11 says: Apr 30, 2011 12:19 PM

    Well, of course… duh!?

  6. cliverush says: Apr 30, 2011 12:20 PM

    Rex is a big fan of John Lennon’s song “Imagine”.

  7. jameswestphal says: Apr 30, 2011 12:20 PM

    But they didn’t. Because they haven’t won a Super Bowl since 1969. That is all.

  8. dwinsgames says: Apr 30, 2011 12:21 PM

    Don’t coaches usually wait until they win something before writing a book? Not this insufferable blowhard. Can you imagine what it will be like if he actually wins someday? Luckily, that probably won’t happen…

  9. txbearmeat says: Apr 30, 2011 12:21 PM

    Child please. The only reason NYJ were even IN that game back in Oct was the complete lack of a running game GB had at that point. Do you think just maybe Starks’ emergence would have changed the fact that you did nothing but sit back in coverage against GB back in Oct? And perhaps AR would have been better able to thread passes to 1 on 1 WR’s instead of facing cloud zones every single play?
    -
    Let’s throw in the fact that the GB/NYJ game happened on the heels of all those season ending injuries GB had, and the replacements were just starting to get in a groove? Child please.

  10. frojo112963 says: Apr 30, 2011 12:21 PM

    Simply put…Who cares what Rex Ryan has to say? He has predicted they would win the Super Bowl the last two years. So why dont’cha show us those World Champion rings Rexy?

  11. jimr10 says: Apr 30, 2011 12:22 PM

    If Rex Ryan ran off at the bowels as much as he does at the mouth, he would be in terrible shape.

  12. dbellina says: Apr 30, 2011 12:22 PM

    I remember back in high school I could throw a pigskin a quarter mile. If coach would have put me in, we would have gone all state.

  13. akhhorus says: Apr 30, 2011 12:22 PM

    Can we all agree that Rex should keep his mouth shut until he wins…something?

  14. mandyross84 says: Apr 30, 2011 12:23 PM

    Rex Ryan is an idiot. Try making the super bowl first. Stop talking.
    “i thought green bay was to going to be to duh to to to to… i’m retarded.”

  15. dfeltz says: Apr 30, 2011 12:23 PM

    Rex Ryan was once endearing, now is an ass who loves the sound of his own voice.

  16. jennstergersburnedretinas says: Apr 30, 2011 12:23 PM

    Unreal. Rex the Clown get back to what you do best, making excuses when your team craps the bed and shooting gross videos with your wife.

  17. edmazeing1 says: Apr 30, 2011 12:24 PM

    Yea & my raiders would have won the superbowl the tuck rule year, ever team can talk like that rex!!!

  18. tjp2033 says: Apr 30, 2011 12:25 PM

    Maybe you would have Rex, but the problem with that is you need to make the Super Bowl. You lost to Pittsburgh.

    Im so tired of this Jets trash talk. Win something and then talk.

  19. techvet says: Apr 30, 2011 12:25 PM

    Hey, Rex: you got shut down and shut out at home by the Packers. You had your chance.

  20. pigeonpea says: Apr 30, 2011 12:27 PM

    Rex sez:

    “We only lost to them 9-0 during the season, and we gave them two of the field goals because of mistakes.”

    That’s right, Rex. Green Bay SHUT. YOU. OUT.

    Maybe someday, if his team actually wins an AFC Championship, someone may start taking his “shoulda, coulda, woulda” routine a little more seriously. Until then, speculating on the outcome of games never played is as ridiculous as guessing how many Super Bowls Green Bay could win if they were able to bring Vince Lombardi and Curly Lambeau back from the dead.

  21. pervyharvin says: Apr 30, 2011 12:29 PM

    For once I totally agree with Rex Ryan. The Jets would have spanked Packers and we all know it!

  22. dstaples89 says: Apr 30, 2011 12:30 PM

    ‘We only lost to them 9-0 during the season’

    Yeah, and you only scored 0 points. That’s not going to win you a superbowl. Green Bay would have smoked you by 30 Fat Rex

  23. patriotswin says: Apr 30, 2011 12:30 PM

    But I truly believe we would have beaten Green Bay.  We only lost to them 9-0 during the season, and we gave them two of the field goals because of mistakes.”

    You still lose feet man. Please stop talking.

  24. TurdSandwich says: Apr 30, 2011 12:31 PM

    Enough already Rex. Can we stop paying attention to this guy’s “predictions” now?

  25. tony420 says: Apr 30, 2011 12:31 PM

    What a fat jerk. Perfect for that team. His father was an a-hole and so is he.

  26. rtmus53 says: Apr 30, 2011 12:31 PM

    Yeah yeah yeah Rex- IF your team had passed the test to actually get to play in the Super Bowl..as I recall, they did not.

    Preseason champs yet again..even during a work stoppage

  27. bmue42 says: Apr 30, 2011 12:32 PM

    cant stay on the rex train any longer, its turned from funny to dumb. he should get to the superbowl before he opens his fat mouth about winning anything

  28. willycents says: Apr 30, 2011 12:32 PM

    Cannot fault Rex for his comments and beliefs. Would rather a person be brimming with confidence/over-confidence than the opposite. As for the awarding the super bowl, etc, the Tebow fans in Denver have already done that, and no criticism of their stand. WTF!!! lets be evenhanded here…lol…

    ps: I am a Broncs fan….:(

  29. dragonfly99 says: Apr 30, 2011 12:33 PM

    What a clown. Action speaks louder than words.

  30. dixon29 says: Apr 30, 2011 12:34 PM

    Stop asking Rex questions. The Jets suck, they will not win the Super Bowl this year, and 95% of us could care less what Rex thinks or has to say.

  31. 1stngoal says: Apr 30, 2011 12:34 PM

    Woulda, coulda, shoulda…

  32. txchief says: Apr 30, 2011 12:35 PM

    Blah, blah, blah! Rex should be sucking his someone’s toes rather than flapping his lips about what could have been.

  33. b1unt3d says: Apr 30, 2011 12:35 PM

    only lost 9-0?

    so you couldn’t even make a single field goal in an entire 60 minute game?

    what a ‘tard.

  34. hedden93 says: Apr 30, 2011 12:36 PM

    Can Rex Ryan ever shut up? This is why I will never respect him and the jets, all they do is brag and gloat.

  35. whitetail28 says: Apr 30, 2011 12:36 PM

    ummmmm….. but they did, loose, to them 9 to 0, rigggght?? Im confused that he would say he could beat them in the sb because they got beat by them in the regular season.
    Rex Ryan has officially lost his mind……………

  36. bengals2012 says: Apr 30, 2011 12:37 PM

    Shut up Rex.

  37. paulieorkid says: Apr 30, 2011 12:38 PM

    Rex, it’s easy to claim you shoulda woulda coulda been the champ …. than to ACTUALLY be the champ.

    What a self-serving comment from a very unsurprising source.

    Rex also predicted a Super Bowl Title after he lost the 2009 AFC Championship – and guaranteed yet another after he lost the 2010 AFC Title Game. Then he has the stones to say they’d have won over the Packers in the Super Bowl had they played. At least on the last one, he can’t technically be proven wrong.

    Give the Pack credit – they won despite more than a dozen players (many of them key guys) out on I.R.

    Ryan reminds me of “that guy” in everyone’s fantasy league who runs his gums about how he’s going to kick ass and take names. Then he goes 4-9 and blames it on injuries, poor NFL coaching, bad calls, inclement weather, he got too busy with “real life”, … etc.

    Best clip ever: watching Rex rip off his headset in the ’10 AFCC Game – and slam it to the ground. His face contorted in slow motion like that Simpsons episode of “Choo Choo Choose Me” when little Ralphie heart got broken by Lisa.

  38. promin1 says: Apr 30, 2011 12:38 PM

    For the love of Christ, shut the F up you stupid fat blow hard. F*ck.

  39. thereisalwaysnextyear says: Apr 30, 2011 12:38 PM

    Blow Hard.

  40. sincitycheeze says: Apr 30, 2011 12:38 PM

    Pretty tough talk from the coach who’s team got shut out at home by the Pack during the regular season.

  41. kevo126 says: Apr 30, 2011 12:39 PM

    “Just declare the Jets to be the champions of all past and future Super Bowls and be done with it.”

    haha well played.

  42. nyjalleffingday says: Apr 30, 2011 12:39 PM

    Rex, i’m your biggest fan and you’re most likely right, but we didn’t even *make* the SB this year. Let the Pack enjoy their win, and tone it down just an eensie bit. We probably would have beaten them, but we didn’t. The Packers are.old news, focus on winning it this year.

  43. kusheadpotman says: Apr 30, 2011 12:39 PM

    So what you’re saying is that you lost. Great stuff here Rex.

    You know, had the Bucs not gotten a BS call vs Detroit we would have gone all the way to, and won, the Super Bowl. But I’m sure everyone’s team has a story like that, we’re just not as pompous as you.

    I think the kush has gotten to his head ;)

  44. dapell says: Apr 30, 2011 12:41 PM

    Will that obese blowhard just go away? It’s hard to respect someone who can’t shut up and doesn’t back it up.

  45. p4ck3r5 says: Apr 30, 2011 12:42 PM

    This guy is just too funny, glad we didnt play the jets in the superbowl otherwise the packers would of lost. Whoa! Thank GOD!!

  46. kenchambers says: Apr 30, 2011 12:43 PM

    There is an old Chinese proverb that says: It is better to keep your mouth shut and have people think you’re a fool than to open it and remove all doubt.

  47. djteknision1200 says: Apr 30, 2011 12:43 PM

    Please STFU!! 15 other AFC teams could proclaim the same BS.

  48. lbpackfan says: Apr 30, 2011 12:45 PM

    Maybe you should’ve taken out the Steelers, than you couldve had your chance to beat the Packers.

    Pretty bold prediction, Rexy. Didn’t you have a home game against Green Bay and couldn’t score any points?

    Living in Minnesota, I heard a lot of the same thing in 2009 … “…we would’ve beat the Colts in the Super Bowl”

    Too funny.

  49. wannabeqb says: Apr 30, 2011 12:45 PM

    Shut up and go away

  50. scudbot says: Apr 30, 2011 12:45 PM

    Green Bay Packers 9, New Jersey Jets 0. New Meadowlands Stadium, East Rutherford, N.J. NY Post: The spooked look on Rex Ryan’s face in the postgame press conference told you all you needed to know about the Jets’ frightful 9-0 loss to the Packers yesterday at the Meadowlands.

    STFU, Ryan.

  51. iamtalkingsolistenandlearn says: Apr 30, 2011 12:47 PM

    The foot fetish freak is the laughingstock of pro sports and is slowly turning the J-E-T-S fans into as well. He is an embaressment to the ownership, league, and other coaches also. I wonder how many of his players have caught him peeking at their feet in the showers?

    If he spent half as much time getting some professional help for him and his wife as he does running his mouth, maybe he wouldn’t be such a weirdo. In any event, he has no class, is overrated as a head coach, is a hypocrite, and a freak.

    I thought he was a phony before the J-E-T-S hired him, and now I KNOW he is a phony.

  52. JimmySmith says: Apr 30, 2011 12:48 PM

    Let me see if I get this straight, the Jets lost to the Packers at home, after a bye week and now he is saying they would have won the Superbowl had they not choked two weeks before?

    I would like to ask Rex a follow up question, like, Who would be playing Qb in this fantasy Superbowl win? Because Sanchez stunk against the Packers in the regular season game and has a history of choking in big playoff games with no game being bigger than the Superbowl?

    Rex needs to go back to playing with his wife’s feet because this other fantasy of his is even more bizarre.

  53. minnesconsin says: Apr 30, 2011 12:51 PM

    hahahah. oh, rexy. stop being silly. you couldn’t even put a point on the pack during the regular season, how do you expect to beat them in the super bowl?

  54. backindasaddle says: Apr 30, 2011 12:51 PM

    Well I suppose you can claim the outcome of any event….if the event never actually happened. After all, I could have won the Heisman Trophy….

  55. cromags says: Apr 30, 2011 12:53 PM

    Who’s more proud of falling short over and over than Rex Ryan? Tuck is right.

  56. shibbyleigh says: Apr 30, 2011 12:54 PM

    I swear, the media dangles Krispie Kremes just out of reach of old Rex and only give it to him when he says something stupid.

  57. gixrider says: Apr 30, 2011 12:55 PM

    -We’re starting to wonder why the NFL even bothers to play the games. Just declare the Jets to be the champions of all past and future Super Bowls and be done with it.-

    Classic. lol!

  58. thetooloftools says: Apr 30, 2011 12:56 PM

    Hey… Rex… shut the hell up and win something.
    You don’t know where visionary ends and dulusionary begins.

  59. bpjensen says: Apr 30, 2011 12:57 PM

    One problem Rex, you needed to beat the Steelers to get to the Super Bowl.

  60. peanutbutter&jelly says: Apr 30, 2011 1:02 PM

    rex has got to find a way to KEEP HIS MOUTH SHUT! does he not understand that there are 2 types of people in this world-talkers & doers and we all know which one of these he is

  61. Gordon says: Apr 30, 2011 1:03 PM

    I’m starting to lose count of all the championships Rex says the Jets won.

  62. tashkalucy says: Apr 30, 2011 1:08 PM

    This guy is like his father — all talk.

    This guy should coach the Miami Heat, and in the offseason he and Jame, Wade and Bosh should wrestle in the WWF.

  63. shaggytoodle says: Apr 30, 2011 1:09 PM

    I can tolerate a lot of what Rex Ryan jokes around hes a pretty funny guy.

    When he has got the Jets winning 6 superbowls in 3 seasons.

    Its flipping old. Less talk more action.

    Jets would not have beat the Packers, they were playing indoors, not outside on a windy day. The Jets would have got CARVED UP.

  64. southyank7 says: Apr 30, 2011 1:09 PM

    someone take that bag of hot air & stuff him into the hole in the OZONE layer… sour grapes…L for LOSER….

  65. davikes says: Apr 30, 2011 1:10 PM

    Blowhard, go play with someone’s feet. The Packers earned the right to play in the SB and won it. So shut up until you actually win it. I can pretty much guarantee you that you’ll never hear McCarthy say “you’re looking at the next champion” or “we would have beat blah blah”. I’m a Vikings fan, and hats off to the Packers. They won it the right way, by playing well, and with class.

  66. thefiesty1 says: Apr 30, 2011 1:11 PM

    A-hole! Could’a, would’a, should’a.

  67. danimalk82 says: Apr 30, 2011 1:12 PM

    HAHA what a moron! “Winners do it, and Losers talk about doin’ it.”

    Hey Rex,

    Who’s to say that ragtag team of idiots wouldn’t have made mistakes in the Super Bowl? Also, you have to score points to win games. Before you start running your fat mouth about beating a team, make sure everyone knows that you can score a point on them first. Worst thing about it is you’ll pull at least 3 more epic choke jobs in the playoffs before the Packers get to whoop your ass in Lambeau.

    Regards,

    A Packers Fan.

  68. deathspiralx says: Apr 30, 2011 1:12 PM

    Woulda, coulda, shoulda… Shut the h*ll up, Rex, until you have something to crow about. (Man, this bird loves to hear himself chirp.)

    I liked Rex at first, but he’s turned into a classless crybaby. All he does is run his punk mouth, constantly.

    The only thing that makes it tolerable is watching him lose and choke out in big games.

    -DeathSpiral

    PS. The foot thing makes sense now. Shoving her foot in his mouth is probably the only thing that shuts Rex up for 5 minutes.

  69. poodawg says: Apr 30, 2011 1:13 PM

    I’ve said this before about Tom Brady vs Rex Ryan, but it needs an update for this scenario.

    Pittsburgh – Super Bowl Rings.

    Green Bay – Super Bowl Rings.

    Rex Ryan – Onion Rings.

  70. pakrguru says: Apr 30, 2011 1:20 PM

    No shocker there….what’s to be surprising about Rex Ryan sticking a nylon clad painted toes foot in his mouth. Dude probably needed a sheet of Bounty just thinking of the toe jam he’d be sucking after making that type of comment.

  71. keramidas21 says: Apr 30, 2011 1:21 PM

    Steelers are a much better team than the Jets. The Packers lost to the Jets in the beginning of the season, right when they were still adjusting to the injuries. Does Rex seriously think the Jets are a better team than the Steelers, Bears, Falcons, Eagles and not to mention the Packers!

  72. gbfanforever says: Apr 30, 2011 1:22 PM

    The jets couldn’t score a single point against the packers AT HOME in the regular season so how could they even make it a game in the SB? SYPH Rex!

  73. vbhall78 says: Apr 30, 2011 1:23 PM

    What a surprise, the yearly we would’ve speech from Fat Bastard. Well tubby the only way the Jets win the Super Bowl is if I use them in Madden. You only lost to the Packers 9-0… Well if the Queen had balls she would be the king! Jets S.U.C.K.!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Hey Rex you can always come to Lambeau Field and visit our Super Bowl Trophy showroom.

  74. vbhall78 says: Apr 30, 2011 1:25 PM

    Bartender, I want the same thing Rex is drinking, as a mater of fact I want double!

  75. calloustongue says: Apr 30, 2011 1:28 PM

    Well, there goes what little respect I had left for that moron.

    Can’t even respect the champions who went through so many guys on IR, and all road playoff games. If you can’t give respect you don’t deserve any.

    What a jerk.

  76. raiderspride says: Apr 30, 2011 1:33 PM

    Rex,

    Nine minus SIX = 3

    You still would have lost 3-0

    Your math is terrible. If you run out of fingers to count with, use your wife’s toes.

  77. nyjalleffingday says: Apr 30, 2011 1:35 PM

    Hahaha, I love reading all the stupid anti-Jets comments. One guy above me thought the Jets actually beat the Packers, yet goes on a self-righteous diatribe against Ryan and the Jets. It’s amazing that people who don’t even have the mental capacity to make an intellegent comment feel the need to spout off. (Just like Rex is accused of. Hypocracy much?)

    Lets face it, the Patriots were better than both the Packers and Steelers (as well as the Jets!) last year, and the Jets absolutley humiliated them. The Jets were very capable of beating both those teams. Unfortunatley for me and the rest of Gang Green Nation, they didn’t. But they could have. That’s what Rex is saying.

    P.S. The Packers were gifted into the playoffs

  78. giraffesturbation says: Apr 30, 2011 1:37 PM

    “To clarify my comment, IF we had been able to beat the team the beat us in the post season, we would have been able to beat the team that shut us out with scrubs and 3rd-stringers during the regular season. Why’s that so hard to accept?” -Rex Ryan

  79. whatthehellisgoingonoutthere says: Apr 30, 2011 1:50 PM

    Thanks for the laugh Rex. You lost to the Packers at home in a game that had 45mph swirling winds and was not conducive to passing. That benefited your crappy QB immensely and handicapped the Packers who have a QB that could carve up your defense.

    Your offense was stuck in the mud against the Packers and never had a chance. They would have decimated you even worse in perfect dome conditions.

  80. packerbacker12 says: Apr 30, 2011 1:50 PM

    Kind of like you beat us during the regular season? Sorry Rex but the Packers beat the Steelers, whom beat your overrated team.

  81. whatthehellisgoingonoutthere says: Apr 30, 2011 1:52 PM

    nyjalleffingday,
    The Packers were “gifted into the playoffs” by winning their last 2 must win games and going on the road and spanking every team they played in the playoffs? Your team should be so lucky. Your QB and your coach sucks. That’s the main problem.

  82. packerbacker12 says: Apr 30, 2011 1:53 PM

    “Rex Ryan – Onion Rings.”

    Or toe rings.

  83. jaggedmark says: Apr 30, 2011 2:00 PM

    Shut up Rex. Didn’t the Packers shut you out 9-0 in New York, when you were coming off your bye week?

    What an ass clown

  84. nyjalleffingday says: Apr 30, 2011 2:05 PM

    @whatthehell
    You mad, bro? Sure, they won the games, but Chicago laid down, and the Giants are pathetic at the end of the season. Carolina blew them out at the end of the 2009 season. Yes, that Carolina. Sure, you had a great playoff run and the Packers certainly earned their Title, no doubt about it, but you don’t see any of the morons here frothing at the mouth about how they were gifted in, like you do with the Jets.

    If going to 2 AFC championship games in the first two years as a HC/Starting QB is defined as sucking, I can think of plenty of teams that would pay big money to “suck.”

    Nobody here can come up with a legitamate critiscism of Rex (Like the fact that he’s not very good at managing the clock, or the fact that his team is wildly inconsistent). All you hear is “hurrrrp blowhard” or “Hurr durr durr fatty onion rings LOLOLOL SO FUN-E.” I hate to break it to you, but the Jets have been a dangerous team since the day Rex got the job, and now that we’re addressing defensive depth problems, (Yes, the players on our defense aren’t that good for the most part, Rex’s scheme is what yields those results, hate it or love it, it’s the truth) the Jets will be even more dangerous.

    P.S. The Packers were gifted into the playoffs
    ________________________________

    Let’s see here. The Pack loses 16 players to IR (many of them key players) & have to rely on their 2nd/3rd stringers as well as some practice squad guys to step up, they start playing playoff type, win or die games with two weeks left in the season, and finally have to play every playoff game on the road. If that’s a gift then Christmas must really suck at your house.

    Pervy, you’re a trip dude.

  86. johnnyb216 says: Apr 30, 2011 2:21 PM

    Fat windbag. He sure does a lot of talking for somebody who didn’t even make it to the superbowl. The guy couldn’t even lose weight with a stapled stomach.

  87. ilpackerbacker says: Apr 30, 2011 2:27 PM

    “P.S. The Packers were gifted into the playoffs”

    LOL, which means what? That you and your dumb friends sat around in your Favre Jets jerseys and Mets hats with your Jersey Shore barbed-wire tattoos and watched the Packers win world title number 13.

    Go run along, put some blue covers on your headlights, to go along with the spoiler on your 4-door Civic with your 20-inch rims, and go be a meathead somewhere else, LOL.

  88. nyjalleffingday says: Apr 30, 2011 2:34 PM

    @footballrulz

    Pervy? I am certianly not PervyHarvin. That’s going too far, good sir. That guy is a moron, and I clearly remember him talking smack about the Pack from the 2010 offseason on, then when the Vikes collapsed, decided to disappear. Weak. I extremely dislike the Vikings, and I have nothing against the Packers at all. I mean, I did root for them. Quite clearly you don’t understand my name. Just add some spaces, I’m sure you’ll figure it out, with time.

    And let’s not use injuries as an excuse, here. I’m looking at the Pack IR/Injury report, and nothing really jumps out at me. The Colts had the injury bug worse than the Packers, and they had a first place schedule to deal with on top of it. Injuries are a part of football and speculating what would have happened without them as about as silly as speculating as what would have happened in a SB you didn’t play in. (See what I did there?) Again, you played your last 2 weeks against a crappy opponent, then an opponent that laid down to let you in. Hence, you were gifted a playoff appearance.

    I don’t care about the Packers, really. I never have to deal with them, and I respect the hell out of what they accomplished, but let’s not pretend the Jets are sooooooooo far away from being in the Packers position, they were one game away, and they looked just as miserable as we did when they beat us. (After a bye week, which is important, seeing as Rex and co. haven’t been able to get the team ready after a bye week since he became head coach, another legit criticism that has nothing to do with feet.)

    And P.S. Christmas at my house was good this year, I got a pretty cool Jets toaster and an LT jersey, I resent your infrence.

    A JETS fan, of all people!

    Short memory, huh pal, can’t remember how the Jets made the playoffs in 2009?

    Ryan thinks the Jets could have beaten the Packers in the SB, despite scoring ZERO points against them AT HOME, and the point is moot any way because they couldn’t even beat the Steelers to get there in the first place!

    And Jets fans wonder why the rest of the world sees them as morons?

    What are you talking about? First of all, the Packers suffered a league-high 15 players on injured reserved, six of them being starters. As for names “not jumping out at you”, I take it you are not familiar with Ryan Grant, Jermicheal Finley, Mark Tauscher or Nick Barnett. The Packers also lost Donald Driver and 2010 Defensive Player of the Year recipient Charles Woodson DURING the actual Super Bowl. Then again, injuries didn’t seem to stop them from steamrolling over the Eagles, Falcons, Bears and Steelers on the road to come home with World Championship #13 and a fourth Lombardi to add to the trophy case. That being said, they don’t need excuses – they won it all. Your Jets on the other hand…

    Again, you played your last 2 weeks against a crappy opponent, then an opponent that laid down to let you in. Hence, you were gifted a playoff appearance.

    What a load of B.S. Lovie Smith fielded da Bears starting lineups for the entire game in the hopes of defeating the Pack and bouncing them from the playoffs. In retrospect, it really isn’t difficult to figure out why.

    Precisely, good sir! That was the point! The Jets were mobbed on here for being gifted in, yet we hear none of that with the Packers. Nice moot point by the way, bringing up the score of the game like it means anything. If I recall correctly, the Jets lost miserably to the Patriots, and under almost the exact same circumstances, the Jets smacked your Pats all over the field. What am I getting at? The past doesnt mean anything.

    I can’t possibly be the only person who read this and had the name “Rex Ryan” pop into my head.

    @nyjalleffingday;

    the entire NFL world recognizes that the only reason the Jets made the 2009 playoffs was because the Colts laid down at haltime and rested their most valuable starters against New York.

    And the 2010 Jets backed into the 2010 playoffs after failing to beat the Bears to clinch their seat, only because Jacksonville couldn’t beat the Redskins.

    Your team made the playoffs two consecutive years, through no credit of their own either time.

    One can only wonder how a Jets fan – who should know more about a team being “gifted” into the playoffs than any other fans – can look at a depleted Packer team that overcame crippling injuries to several key starters to win three straight road playoff games, and say that they were “gifted” into the playoffs..

    The Packers need aplogize to NO Jets fan, and need only to remind Jets fans that New York couldn’t have beaten Green Bay in the Super Bowl, because they couldn’t even beat Pittsburgh to GET there.

  96. nyjalleffingday says: Apr 30, 2011 4:08 PM

    The NFL started in 1920, not in the ’70s so therefore everything won before the Super Bowl era counts.

  98. nyjalleffingday says: Apr 30, 2011 4:19 PM

    @pigeonpea: thank you for writing the only rebuttal so far that wasn’t moronic. ‘preciate it. Anyway, like I said,.injuries are a part of football. The pack is not the only team to overcome injuries. Sanchez screwed up his throwing arm, Revis had a tweaked hammy most of the season, we lost Leonhard (our “defensive QB”) right before playoff time, Kris Jenkins blew out his ACL, ect. I don’t have excuses for why the Jets lost. The Steelers outplayed us and outcoached us, i’ve said it before and i’ll say it again. And please, DA BEARS got to choose who they let in. Who are they gonna pick, the Giants that absolutley brutalized them earlier in the year, or the guys they get to play twice a year and are incredibly familiar with? Tough question.

    “@packerbacker: The NFL era consisted of a handful of teams. Nice history, but thats all it is.”

    Even if the pre-Super Bowl era consisted of 10 teams or 32 teams, it was still the NFL. They still played football and everything that happened then shaped today’s NFL.

    And all you needed to do was beat the Pittsburgh Steelers in the Championship game. But you couldn’t manage that, could you, Big Mouth? Sucks to come in second. Sucks more to come in third.

    @packerbacker

    Of course its important history, its shaped the way the NFL is today. To deny that would be ignorant and you wont ever catch me doing it with a straight face. That being said, are you really trying to hold ancient title over my head when the NFL today is so radically different from the NFL of yesteryear? Sure, hold the 4 Lombardis over me, (its nothing the flamers up north havent done before, i’m a Jets fan, i’m used to it.) but cut the 13 titles BS.

    Like I expressed before, I don’t have a particular bone to pick with the Packers, and I give them much respect for winning the whole thing, in fact they were my favorite to represent the NFC in the SB. But what I’m trying to say is that I agree with Rex that the Jets could have beaten the Packers in the SB, if they made it, which they didn’t, the decide to crap the bed against the Steelers instead.
    The Jets, for two years running have been on the cusp of making it to the Super Bowl, a feat not accomplished in 4 decades. In return, the fans finally have a team that can win it all. The general “the sky is falling” doom & gloom atmosphere of the Jets has been totally and abruptly reversed. In a mere two years, REX RYAN managed this. Yes, behind the brash predictions and scandals, there is a lot of football knowledge and coaching talent. Sure, Mangini built up our core, but Rex inherited basically the same team, and now he’s making something out of them. So no, we havent won anything yet, but this team isn’t even in it’s prime yet, and it can still tangle with some of the best teams in the NFL. Our best players, our home grown talent and a few coveted FA pickups, are all young and learning a relatively new system. We have yet to peak.
    tl;dr: The Packers have a great team with a great, rich history, and the Jets don’t but we do have a great team and we’re getting there. Also, Rex is the man.

    the Jets have corners that can shut down greg jennings and james jones. the real question is whether the jets offense would have scored against the packer defense at all.

  113. kevishu says: May 1, 2011 12:42 AM

    Rex doesn’t understand the purpose of actually playing games. It’s obvious that most teams probably could beat any Superbowl opponent if given the advantage of playing an absolutely perfect game, having every play go as desired. But no team EVER plays perfect. It’s how a team game-plans, then overcomes adversity when things aren’t going as desired. To say his team lost earlier in the season because of a couple mistakes is completely foolish. Doesn’t he think the Packers made a couple mistakes, too?

    I used to like Rex as that edgy coach that brings drama to the game. Now I just think he’s a d*mn fool.

    Sorry Rex … wouldn’t have happened.

    Sanchez was busy Super Bowl weekend … had to take his high school sweetie to the prom.

    That makes him the only Jet to score that weekend.

  116. possiblecabbage says: May 1, 2011 2:38 AM

    To be honest, the conditions that favor the Jets most against the Packers were the ones that they played in during the regular season (natural turf and windy conditions making for a slow track that’s not conducive to passing). Playing indoors in perfect conditions would allow Green Bay to exploit their considerable speed advantage, which would not play to the Jets strength at all. The Jets are good, but the one thing that they really lack is speed on defense, particularly at the linebacker positions.

  117. 1fembot2 says: May 1, 2011 8:03 AM

    “We only lost to them 9-0 during the season, and we gave them two of the field goals because of mistakes.”

    Then Jets would have lost 3 – 0. Or how about this one – Detroit would have beaten the Packers in the Superbowl because they beat them during the season. Or how about this one – Green Bay would beaten the Jets 23 – 0 if Green Bay had home field advantage….if their receivers hadn’t dropped those balls…if the moon was in the seventh house and Jupiter aligned with Mars….

    @nyjetsalleffinday…

    You can keep on saying the Jets would of beaten the Packers in the Super Bowl but saying that doesn’t make the Jets any better. The fact is that the Jets lost to Pittsburgh in the championship game while the Packers beat that same team in the Super Bowl. So please just accept that fact and stop embarrassing yourself by saying the Jets would of won in a game that happened over two months ago.

  124. packerbacker12 says: May 1, 2011 3:33 PM

    Maybe they would have. In face, let’s all agree that they would have. But they still lost to Pittsburgh so it really doesn’t matter at all.

    I think they would have matched up better with the Packers, but the Packers defense played a great game against a great QB. I doubt Sanchez would have faired better than Ben.

    But who knows? It’s all speculation, because they still lost in the AFCCG.

    I’d just like to thanks Rex for cutting Howard Green before GB played the Jets. I guess he was too fat, and I have to trust Rex on that one, he’s the expert.

    The previous week GB’s one NT (Raji) had to play the entire game versus the Vikings. In prior weeks Green Bay also played Josh Sitton (starting OG) in goalline defense because they had no other big bodies.

    And then Howard Green had a good playoffs where he squashed Cutler once, and hit Big Ben’s arm on a pass that was pick 6′ed to put the Pack up 14-0 in the Super Bowl.

    As Deb pointed out to you I did not mean to imply you were Pervy–you are wrong however about him doing a disappearing act. He’s the one Viking homer that stayed on here through it all.

    Nothing hard at all to figure out about your name. Pretty obvious you’re a Jets fan.

    There have been more than enough replies to your ramblings about being gifted so no need to reiterate.

    Enjoy your toaster.
