The regular season? No sense in even talking about that now, not with so many unanswered health questions on Tom Coughlin’s blackboard.
One can only hope Saturday night’s game reaches some representative level of excitement, if only to counteract the abject dullness this week at training camp.
New York bragging rights were on the line on Friday night when the Jets and Giants squared off. When the grills heated up on Friday so did an undeniable football rivalry.
Geno Smith and Michael Vick each threw touchdown passes with the New York Jets’ starting offense, and the defense mostly shut down Eli Manning before the Giants’ backups rallied for a 35-24 preseason victory Friday night.
Rex Ryan has not-so-fond memories of the last time the Jets faced the Giants. Well, other than winning a preseason game that earned his team a Snoopy-topped bronze trophy.
“Yeah, last time I saw him he was getting smoked by Clemson,” Ryan said with a big smile.
