The Giants and Jets share a stadium, and that’s about it.
But as part of the process of putting his team on notice, Giants General Manager Jerry Reese said he was installing a clock in the Giants locker room, to count down the minutes until someone is playing the Super Bowl in their building.
It was almost Jets-like in its bold confidence, harkening back to Rex Ryan guarantees, even if it was far more subtle.
While the Giants disappointed down the stretch last year, they are certainly a better bet to host a Super Bowl on their home field than their neighbors. And perhaps living so close together has caused a little bravado to creep into the normally mature Giants offices.
