08:04 AM ET 08.08 | If Rex Ryan thought taking his team out for a movie Tuesday night would help diffuse the tension that led to a brawl earlier in the day, he was mistaken. Jets practice got feisty for the second straight day and coach Rex Ryan is clearly annoyed about it. Ryan halted practice Tuesday twice. First, to deliver an expletive-filled warning to the Jets to stop fighting. Then, to make them run sprints after another fight nearly broke out. All of this comes a day after a major brawl at practice nearly spilled into the stands. "I'm glad we're playing somebody else on Friday. It will be good. It's that time," Ryan said. ... "I think sometimes you're trying to be physical, but being physical is one thing. Going past that is something else and that's what I didn't like."

"I'm glad we're playing somebody else on Friday. It will be good. It's that time..."

I guess we will watch to count the fights Friday night.

Famed circus producer P.T. Barnum is credited with the saying "There's a sucker born every minute."

This works on so many levels with the Jets.

Rex's team won one more game last year than the last Jets team Mangini coached and was fired from. Two play off teams will buy you some time, but Woody has to be just a little nervous about the organization. If this thing blows up again on Rex, then he will reappear as a DC next year.

Watch the team introductions. Instead of running out on to the field from the locker room, the whole team will pile out of one tiny car.

Time for Jets fans to start wearing bags.

"I'm glad we're playing somebody else on Friday. It will be good. It's that time," Ryan said. ... "I love going out there, failing to live up to the hype, and finishing 8-8. Hopefully this first preseason game sets a tone for a lack of camaraderie and an overall tension in the huddle."

They should all show up for the games wearing Giants jerseys.

I think we're at about 14:58 of Rex's 15:00 minutes of fame as a Jets coach.

August 8, 2012  08:47 AM ET

The jets truly are a gift that keeps giving.....laugh ,after laugh,after laugh. It seems there may be more than training camp friction, one could get the impression they can't work and play nice together...

I think only the NY faithful would disagree with that.

you would think with all the nonsense in the offseason and now training camp the 'faithful' would just be saying - s/t/f/u and just play! If it was your team wouldn't you?
