08:05 AM ET 08.26 | Rex Ryan has Christmas circled on the calendar for a reason outside the holiday. The Jets face the Giants in a preseason game on Saturday, but that's nothing compared to the team's regular-season matchup Christmas Eve. That's when Ryan will find out if his team really can take over New York for the next 10 years, as he believes it will. "Absolutely. Absolutely I do. I guess we get to find out, you know, on Christmas Eve," Ryan said Thursday. "I'm not backing down from one comment. I believe we are the best team in New York. "My goal is to be the best team in the National Football League, not just in New York. I'm not backing down one bit from that statement. I believe that will be the case."

Theme of the day........"JETS SUCK!!!"

Rex is neither an imbecile nor a moron, and he probably has the best team in New York by default. But before he gets to be the best team anywhere else, he's got to prove he's the best in the AFC East, and I don't think he's going to do that.

Hurricane Irene should make this game in the Meadowlands on Saturday a mess.

Rex vs. Irene - the Battle of the Blowhards. You call it.

And just in case you forgot, JETS SUCK

The way Rex talks, putting his own foot in his mouth must turn him on too.

The Jets are a dangerous team. I just love the bitter flavor of Haterade first thing in the morning. Much better than coffee.

This makes me wonder....

Did they stop making Gatorade gum? That was good stuff.

Yikes.....the hate parade has begunI never understood though how a team thats gone to 2 championship games in a row can 'suck', cause what does that mean for the rest of the league?

Mostly cause it's fun to hate the villain... Coach Fatty Fat McFattersons has made sure to put the Jets in that position with all his blowhard declarations... as well as all the thug players who also talk endlessly. So while they may not really "suck", they are easy to hate. On side note I think they have taken a pretty big step back while the Patriots have taken a step forward. 8-8 for the Jets this year.

I haven't seen that in years. They must've stopped.

We all said that about the Jets last year, remember? How they were going to self-destruct with all the diva signings and Revis's holdout? So, I think they'll be in the hunt, unless they lose a couple early and get sp00ked.

Pats, though, do look better. They're came out ready to play in pre-season. Not too many other teams can say that this year.
