Rex Ryan couldn't resist.
The Jets face the Eagles Sunday, and that means defending explosive punt returner DeSean Jackson. When asked Wednesday about Jackson, Ryan referenced one of the most painful moments in Giants history.
"I think there are people around here that might be able to answer that question better than us," Ryan said, taking an obvious shot at the Giants.
Jackson's 65-yard TD as time expired punctuated an epic collapse last season by the Giants, and basically cost them a playoff shot.
"Let's face it, he doesn't make that return, Green Bay doesn't even go to the playoffs last year so he is that kind of guy — game on the line, he can break it any time," Ryan said. "The average doesn't look that great this year, but he's one of those guys where you have to hold your breath every time he gets it. He is a special returner."
Can't wait for Jets-Giants next week.
