It's not just New England and Patriot fans that dislike Rex Ryan. Even members of the New York Giants organization are revealing their displeasure of the Jets head coach's ego.
Following Ryan's new book, Play Like You Mean It, in which he writes that the Jets would have beaten the Packers in the Super Bowl and are better than their "big brother," a Giants player and representative have fired back, asserting that "Talk is cheap," according to ESPN.com.
Pat Hanlon, the Giants' vice president of communications, tweeted his opinions about the book, saying "You gotta be in it to win it," and, "Talk is cheap."
Hanlon later tweeted, "Tom Coughlin [Giants head coach] wrote a book too, It was about a team and an HC that won a Super Bowl."
Giants defensive end Justin Tuck also sounded off on the book, and pointed to his Super Bowl ring in response to questions about Ryan's writing.
"The last time I check, I have a Super Bowl ring and he doesn't," Tuck said, according to the New York Post, "so if he's proud of coming up short, I guess he should be proud of that."
Earlier this year, Ryan predicted a Super Bowl win for the third year in a row. However, in the last two years, his team has fallen short in the AFC Championship game.
The Giants and Jets are scheduled to play on Christmas Eve, and Ryan is still out to prove his team is the real "big brother."
