If you were wondering what effect last months New England Patriots destruction over the New York Jets had on the Jets team, well here’s your answer:
Jets WR Braylon Edwards sure doesn’t seem rattled. “We knew we would get back at them,” Edwards said. “We always knew. In the back of our minds, we always felt as though we would get back to them and it would be about us. It’s not even about revenge. That’s the regular season. Who cares to be honest. Yeah, we got embarrassed. But that’s the regular season. This is the playoffs. We’re fighting for something so much different.”
“If we beat them by one point, it’s a win,” Edwards said. “They can have the 42-point win. . . . But we just want a one-point win.”
As for LaDainian Tomlinson: “The funny thing is, I remember late in the fourth quarter as the Patriots were talking and yapping about the game that night and I said to a couple of guys, ‘We’ll be back.’” “You guys got us tonight, but we’ll be back.”
Never one to keep quiet, Rex Ryan, after the Jets loss to the Patriots, said one thing to Patriots coach Bill Belichick during the handshake at the end of the game: “We’ll see you in Round 3,” Ryan said.
