07:05 AM ET 09.11 | Something to keep an eye on Thursday night when Rex Ryan and Bill Belichick meet at midfield to kick off Week 2 action? On Tuesday's edition of NFL Network's "NFL Total Access," NFL Media's LaDainian Tomlinson recalled a pep talk the Jets coach gave to his players before a showdown between the AFC East rivals. "We were playing the Patriots one time, and as I mentioned, Rex is a master motivator," said Tomlinson, who played under Ryan in 2010 and 2011. "It was going to be a big game, a heated rivalry game, and Rex got in front of us, he said, 'I'm going to set the tempo today, guys,' he said, 'I'm going to set the tempo when I meet Bill Belichick in the center of the field, I'm gonna start it off and punch him in the face.' I loved it."

That would be fun to watch but it'll never happen, Ryan is just a blow hard like his daddy.

Ladanian Tomlinson has to tell inside information to stay relevant with that broken up english.

And after he said that, his sphincter closed up and he put on 50 pounds. Doctors could not fgure out what was wrong.

You don't eff with the Dark Lord.

Good Lord, I hate Ryan and Tomlinson. At least they won the Super Bowl with the Jets together.

What's that?

Ray Lewis has nothing on Rex.

Tub o' Lard really set the tempo.
