Belichick puts clamp on Pats players talking?

It's Patriots-Jets week, which means plenty of talking. At least from Rex Ryan's crew anyway -- Ryan tried to move the rivalry from the field and into the minds of the respective coaches, citing the "personal" nature of the matchup between he and Bill Belichick. (Of course, he's already said that he came to the Jets to "kick [Belichick's] ass, so there's that too.)

Unsurprisingly, Belichick didn't take the bait, and he's apparently ordered a bit of a media gag on his players re: sparring verbally with the Jets.

"Definitely," Jerod Mayo said, laughing, when asked if Belichick had warned the Pats players about engaging the Jets. "That's why I'm hoping no one asks me those kinds of questions."

Alge Crumpler pointed to the similarity between the teams and their respective coaches.

"Here we go," Crumpler said about hearing Ryan's initial comments. "I thought we’d get a few days before the banter starts. But it is what it is. Like I said last time, they take after their coach, we take after our coach."

So, yeah, this is how things should be until the Patriots and Jets kickoff on CBS (and random reminder: if you're tweeting about the game, throw the #onCBS hashtag; you might land yourself a special little retweet) at 4:30 PM EST Sunday.

The Jets will talk -- a lot -- and the Patriots won't talk -- a lot. Then they'll play football. The only difference, as usual, is that if the Jets lose, everyone will remind them how much of a bluster they put up beforehand.

UGA ...  They were NOT penalized for filming.  The penalty was for filming on the sideline.  If the camera holder stepped back 20 feet to the wall and stood up at seat 1,  No problem.  EVERYBODY FILMS.  With todays 100x zooms,  does 20' really matter?

How exactly are the Jets a completely different team?  And dont say because they beat the colts last week.

The Patriots win but saying they have more class than any team in the league is bogus given the fact they were caught filming their opponents.

No, maybe if you did the Jets might be able to possibly get a TD in this game. I love BB coaching and how he handles our pats....Shut up play ball and get it done. WHen you win, you still keep your mouth shut. This team has more class than any team in the league. Period...Ryan can work on his Foot Fetish right after Sunday's game.....

I guess Big Rex didn't learn his lesson about running his head before playing the Pats. Last time the Pats gave 'em the business on national TV so bad Ryan buried the ball. Now they'll have to pack up and watch the Superbowl from home,lol.

Also, there was a 5% chance of the Jets actually winning the game and all of the talking by Rex Ryan has dropped that down to a 0% chance.  Who in their right mind is going to give bulletin board material to the Pats?  Ryan runs his team like Romper Room.
