We know mfers in New York are clownin right now:
Shonn Greene placed the ball on the ground and used it as a pillow, resting his head on it after scoring the Jets’ final touchdown of a stunning upset.
A quiet climax to a very loud week of non-stop jabbering, poking, berating, and then some, mostly by the New Yorkers. On Sunday, they proved that they weren’t all talk — trash talk — after all.
Now Rex Ryan’s rowdy bunch is headed to its second straight AFC championship game after New York backed up its coach’s boasts with a 28-21 win Sunday over the New England Patriots — the team with the best record in the NFL. Mark Sanchez threw three touchdown passes and the Jets sacked Tom Brady five times in the most-hyped of the weekend’s four postseason games following a week of verbal potshots from both teams.
“Maybe everybody else never believed, but we believed,” Ryan said. “We’re moving on. Same old Jets, back to the AFC championship. The only difference is this time we plan on winning.”
The Jets, who lost that game to Indianapolis last year, will try to win their third straight postseason game on the road, against the Pittsburgh Steelers, next Sunday. The Steelers beat the Baltimore Ravens 31-24 on Saturday.
Late in Sunday’s game, Ryan was true to his exuberant self. He ran down the sideline and celebrated with his players after Greene’s 16-yard score with 1:41 left. And, when the game was over, Jets wide receiver Braylon Edwards did a backflip.
“We don’t care what people say or whether they like us,” cornerback Darrelle Revis said. “We just focus on what we need to do to win games.”
Poor Tom Brady….first he gets called an a$shole by Antonio Cromartie and now this…
