Talk Is Cheap

Posted: December 24, 2011 by Keith Stone in football, Giants, Jets, Joe Namath, NFL

After both teams turned in pathetic performances last week, you’d figure the Giants and the Jets wouldn’t worry too much about the trash talking and concentrate on what’s going down on the field. For the most part, that’s been true. There’s been a little, “We’re classier,” “Our fans are better,” “Revis is overrated,” “I can’t wait to shoot my former team in the leg” talk but it’s been pretty subdued.

The only thing that bothers me is that Joe Namath got involved and is telling everyone the Jets are going to win 27-16. What does Joe Namath have to do with the 2011 Jets? Shut up, Joe. Shouldn’t you be in rehab or embarrassing yourself on national television? Rex Ryan is the biggest loudmouth of them all and even he’s sick of your yapping. You don’t see Frank Gifford talking about the Giants-Jets game. He’s busy slapping around Kathy Lee. The fact of the matter is that this game is important because both teams are on the brink of missing the playoffs. I couldn’t care less about bragging rights. Talk is cheap. Play the game.
