08:01 AM ET 11.21 | So much for the vitriol that often accompanies a Patriots-Jets game, as Rex Ryan had some kind words for Tom Brady on Tuesday. "The thing about him, he's a machine yet he's passionate and a fiery leader. You wish he was just a machine. His competitive side elevates his team as well. That's what you get from those once-in-a-generation-type quarterbacks." ... [The Jets held New England in check for much of their meeting in October], but Brady found his stride late in the game, driving his offense to a game-tying field goal then setting up another kick from Stephen Gostkowski for the winner in overtime. "When it mattered most, he delivered and got the victory," Ryan said.

More likely Rexy is gushing over thoughts of his Thanksgiving dinner table.

Oh boy... Here we go.

Welcome to 2012, Rex.

Given Brady's been around since 2001, 11 years is a long time for someone to figure something out, even someone in the Ryan family.

Rex also said that he really loves Tom's feet --almost as much as he likes his wife's feet

In fairness to the Rexster, he said he was not there to kiss BB's rings, he never said anything like that about Brady.

Loved the movie where Rex had a Brady poster on his office wall!

I'll be interested to hear Ryan's opinion if NE drops 50 on them tomorrow. Also, isn't he worried about hurting Sanchez's feelings?

IT'S A TRAP!!!!

I used to like Rex's bravado but now I just wish he'd S T F U!! PLEASE!

Trash talk is working.....might as well try a little kiss & hug angle.

A lucid moment for Rex. Mark this day on the calendar.

He is just looking for a job next year as NE DC. He will need one. Who knew hiring Sporano as OC, getting Tebow (when you have such a sensitive QB in NEW YORK no less) and having a coach who lost control of his team LAST YEAR would not lead to success on the field this year. Baffling.

Maybe he's hoping Brady can hook him up with a pair of Ugg boots for Christmas.

I think that's his point. He wants to instill more locker room turmoil in the belief that it's key to making the playoffs this year. Best I can figure anyhow. Nothing else makes any sense.
