The last time Gang Green traveled to Foxborough it was a fiasco — the Patriots won 45-3 — but fans in New York aren’t worried. “Everybody has a bad game,” one man said. “That was ours and that’s the last one this season.”
“We have a lot of things going on right now, and Rex is gonna show them a lot of new looks and it’s going to be a whole different story,” a fan said.
“We’ve got two more games and then we’re going to the big dance,” another fan said.
Even Mayor Michael Bloomberg has no doubts about how the Jets will do. “The Jets are going to the Super Bowl, you heard it from me,” Bloomberg said on his weekly radio show with John Gambling.
The excitement is building for what is shaping up to be a trash talking (and singing) rivalry game to end all games. The winner gets this season’s bragging rights and moves one step closer to Super Bowl XLV in Dallas.
Players on both sides were getting into it with Coach Rex Ryan leading the charge for the Jets. He has brought it down to almost a personal vendetta between himself and Patriots Coach Bill Belichick.

The fans aren’t holding anything back either. “I think Rex should bet Belichick a foot rub on this one,” a fan told 1010 WINS’ John Montone.

The Jet juice has been flowing at bars across the boroughs and at the Landmark Diner in Roslyn, L.I. where fans said they love Ryan’s big mouth. “We wouldn’t have it any other way,” a fan said. “He’s gonna back it up this week, we’re gonna show you what he’s been talking about, we’re ready for the Super Bowl.”
And fans are also sending out a warning to Tom Brady: be careful because the defense is hungry.
