Patriots Perspective: Why We Hate the New York Jets

The rivalry between the New York Jets and New England Patriots has gained intensity in recent years. Perhaps it was the dramatic departure of Eric Mangini that triggered the feud, or the spiced up media frenzy upon Rex Ryan’s arrival in New York. The players on the field have brought their own drama to the […]

Rex Ryan to Play Patriots Fan in Adam Sandler Movie “Donny Boy”

If I say “Adam Sandler movies,” what comes to mind? Billy Madison? Happy Gilmore? Waterboy? The Wedding Singer? Big Daddy? Many of these movies were hilarious. But, the other common attribute these movies share is that they were released in the 90’s. All of them. Notable movies since? Little Nicky (ugh). Mr. Deeds (meh). The […]

Podcast: Jets vs Patriots Game Preview

Patriots! Jets! This week always has a special feel to it. We thought it would be appropriate to merge SoB and SoNY for a preview podcast. I had Kristine Reese of Sports of New York  on the SoB! Podcast to discuss every facet of the game. Is the Sanchize ready to take the next step? Is […]

Rex Ryan Puts “Foot” Down, Asks Other Teams to Beat Patriots

Rex Ryan is a lot of things: He’s motivational. He’s emotional. He’s charismatic. He’s creepy. But he’s also paranoid, and lacks self-confidence. “What’s that last thing you just said? Lacks self-confidence, are you effing kidding me,” you rave,  “This dude’s a boisterous clown with the self-confidence of Ron Jeremy and Justin Timberlake…combined.” You’ve been duped, and […]

Jets Lose Interest in Moss, Avoid Disaster

It’s been an interesting week for former New England Patriot, Minnesota Viking, Tennessee Titan and Oakland Raider Randy Moss. On Monday, Boston Globe reporter Greg Bedard reported that the New York Jets were interested in signing the free-agent wide receiver. Less than 24 hours later, Fox Sports reporter Adam Schein tweeted that the Jets had […]

Belichick v. Ryan: A Coaching Rivalry

It’s coach versus coach now. Belichick versus Ryan. After a tumultuous, competitive season in the AFC East, Boston sports fans have been introduced to a rivalry that is relatively unheard of in a city that loves its sports rivalries. As Boston sports fans, we are subjected to a variety of different rivalries sustained by media […]

The Birth of a Sanchize

If the aftermath of Sunday’s demoralizing defeat (no pun intended, I’m not Wes Welker) at the hands of Rex Ryan’s Jets, everyone in New England did what we always do, and immediately started looking for someone to blame. Brady was too flat, we said. Belichick got outcoached. To accept a loss to our (former) little […]

2010 Game of the Year: Patriots Beat Jets 45-3

To conclude our series of Awards for the year that was, we bring you what the SoB staff voted as the top game of 2010. Ironically, the Patriots-Jets rematch in Week 13, a 45-3 beatdown of the Jets in Foxboro, tops the list. This is ironic, of course, considering the Jets returned the favor, crushing […]

Rex Ryan Feet-ured on Metro Cover

Whether Rex Ryan can handle it or not, this “foot fetish” report will not go away. Boston’s free Metro newspaper took a swipe at Rexy, featuring the Jets coach with dozens of bare feet with the title “Why The Pats Will De-Feet The Jets.” The newspaper then goes on to point out spas while Rex […]

The Patriots: A Hornets Nest the Jets Poke at Own Peril

Ever since Monday, we’ve all been subject to what the media calls the “War of Words” between the New York Jets and the New England Patriots. But is it really a war if one side attacks and the other side doesn’t respond? Perhaps this should be re-named the “Bay of Pigs Invasion of Words,” or […]

So, IS Tom Brady an A-hole?

Noted etiquette expert and New York Jets cornerback Antonio Cromartie sparked controversy this week when he called New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady an “a**hole” for allegedly pointing to the Jets sideline after a touchdown during New England’s 45-3 victory in Week 13. “Everybody’s seen the tape of him pointing and taunting at the sideline […]

Dear Rex Ryan: A Letter About Tom Brady & The Playoffs

You’re right, Rex. Peyton Manning would have been watching your Wildcard playoff game this weekend. Manning is probably a big Colts fan, I doubt he would miss their first playoff game. Oh, is that not what you meant? Right, if Peyton Manning were Tom Brady, who had a bye this week because his team went […]

With Rex Ryan Foot Fetish Report, Deadspin Has Gone Too Far

A “story” broke on deadspin.com on Wednesday. I say “story,” because in my mind, this does not qualify as journalism. It is a series of videos of a man- likely New York Jets coach Rex Ryan- and a woman- likely his wife, Michelle- engaged in a police role-play where the man says the woman has […]

Patriots-Jets “Game” Rewind: Rex Nuts Up, Jets Don’t Show Up

Well then, I guess that settles that. Expecting a knock-down, drag-out fight in the Ward-Gatti tradition, we instead got Tyson-Spinks, except this bout had a predetermined, rigid time structure and no standing eight count. But 45-3? On Tedy Bruschi Night? Not even in Pete Sheppard’s wettest dreams did anyone see this bloodletting coming. You could […]

PATS on the Back: Week 13 vs. New York Jets

“Outcoached.” “Outplayed.” “A total butt whooping.” Yup Rex, that about sums it up. How fun was Monday night’s 45-3 blowout win over the hated Jets? I mean really, with all the hype leading up to that game… the “game of the year,” as ESPN and the NFL was touting it… how flippin’ sweet was that […]
