Why do so many fans get sensitive and btchy about things that don't make a difference on way or the other in the end?
The Giants have been well known to talk trash (Jacobs, Rolle, Osi, etc), predict wins (Plax SB), and even had their Safeties (Rolle, Phillips) saying they have more talent than the Jets, and wish they could play for Rex cause he has been the difference, a obvious shot at Coughlin, intentional or not.
The Jets talked trash before big games, and have won some and lost some. It has not affected the outcome, and if you don't wanna take my word for it find an NFL player that thinks it does......good luck.
The only embarrassing part of this subject is the ignorant and whinny fans that cry about it.
Every team has winning and losing seasons......this is the NFL.......it's almost impossible to be and stay on top without a small handful of franchise HOF QBs, it's reality. If you can't handle it, I suggest you don't become a fan of any NFL team. Go root for the Yankees and GTFOutta here!
