    Jets' Scott sees new Patriots: 'You know they want to be us'

    • By NFL.com

    The low-key New England Patriots and loudmouth New York Jets are polar opposites. Or are they?

    Jets linebacker Bart Scott believes that's changing, citing New England wide receiver Wes Welker's now-infamous news-conference mocking of New York coach Rex Ryan as an example.

    "That's doesn't sound right, that kind of talk (coming from the Patriots)," Scott www.metro.us/newyork/sports/article/833618--yes-rex-can-scott-likens-ryan-to-obama--page0" target="new">recently told Metro in New York. "That's when you know they're buying into us, when they start sounding like we talk. Wes Welker start trying to be us, sounding like we do. That's how you know they want to be us."

    Scott's comments are the latest volley in the increasing back-and-forth between the AFC East rivals. The Jets had the last laugh, beating the Patriots, 28-21, in the divisional round of the playoffs. No-nonsense New England coach Bill Belichick www.nfl.com/goto?id=09000d5d81db93b3" target="new">didn't start Welker, a three-time Pro Bowl pick, in that game as punishment for his references to a foot-fetish video allegedly linked to Ryan.

    Scott also had words for his old team, the Baltimore Ravens, whom the linebacker said lost some of their identity when he, safety Jim Leonhard and coach Rex Ryan left for New York in 2009.

    "The Ravens don't operate like the Ravens anymore," Scott said. "(Head coach John) Harbaugh changed everything. The Ravens aren't that loose anymore.

    "We laugh, we joke, but then we go out there and put in a defensive system. We have our fun, and then on the field, we know what to do. If you study for the test, there's nothing to be nervous about, right? If you don't know what you're doing, that's when you can't have fun. We know what we're doing, but on the field, we back it up, too."

    Former Ravens teammate Terrell Suggs chuckled Friday on NFL Network's "NFL Total Access" when informed of Scott's comments.

    "Billy Bart, really?" Suggs said "... Nah. We have fun. The first year, we had that change, and it was kind of weird. With change, there's a period of adjustment, but we have a lot of fun. You think me and (Pro Bowl defensive lineman) Haloti Ngata don't have a lot of fun? C'mon, now, I'm the most loose guy in the NFL. It's still a very fun, loose locker room."

    The Ravens and Jets are scheduled to meet in Baltimore next season, and Suggs -- to borrow a phrase from Scott -- www.nfl.com/goto?id=09000d5d81e9ddb7" target="new">can't wait to see Ryan, his old defensive coordinator.

    "I love to play him," Suggs said. "It's so fun."

    Scott shares Suggs' admiration for Ryan and is quick to defend his coach, comparing him to President Obama when explaining why some people don't like him.

    "It's how he talks and says what he's thinking and how he lets us be loose and talk," Scott told Metro. "People don't think the president is supposed to be black either. They think a president is supposed to look a certain way. It's the same thing with Rex. He doesn't look and act the way other coaches act. And we love him for it."

    Scott also loves it when Ryan predicts the Jets will win the Super Bowl, as he did this offseason after losing a second consecutive AFC Championship Game.

    "I wasn't surprised. That's how we roll," Scott said. "I mean, were you really surprised? It isn’t like we've had a cataclysmic meltdown or a failure. We're must-see TV."

    The Rex Ryan book of football coaching says to always force your players to talk nasty to your biggest foe, because if it's always you talking nasty to your foe, the press loses interest. 

    The 14-2 Patriots are the Jets' second biggest obstacle to them ever winning a division crown.  The biggest is themselves, but they're not into self-criticism so they talk trash elsewhere.

    Re: Scott at it again. What do you guys think of this article? Jets' Scott sees new Patriots: 'You know they want to be us'

    agree with you Paul_K that the Jets are not into self-criticism. Perhaps if they were they could improve. They will NEVER top the Pats as long as BB and Brady are involved with the Patriots. Jets will always be at least second to them.

    Can't stand scott almost as much as cromartie, edwards, suggs, lewis, and others.

    Big deal Jets won two divisional games. So what!

    They did NOT win the division either year the Pats did.

    They did NOT make it to the SB either year

    I just don't see how beating the Colts in a game and the Pats in a game is doing something. You still are just beating teams in a game. You still haven't WON any time of championship awards.  The Colts still won their division. The Pats still won theirs.

    Jets cant even get past the Pats to win the AFC EAST division so I don't get why they are all (including Ryan) acting like they did something when in fact they did nothing. Shouldn't they at least try and win the division first?

    But they won't cause they can't get past the Pats to do so.

    14-2 best record in the NFL last year. Let's make it even better this one.

    Pats are gonna fix the Jets good this year. Can't wait for it.

    so you lose and yet you are still better...I see...

    And I do understand that any team can lose on any given sunday but...

    Sanchez 3 - Brady 2
    Rex 3 - Little Bill 2

    Still a small sample size but I do see a trend developing with these teams as they are today.

    This may come as a shock to you, but the Jets have to do a little more than beat the Pats 2-out of 3 games to be considered to have done anything.

    But, please, keep up the Jets tradition of considering any game played against the Pats as your Superbowl. It just reinforces  just jealous you all really are.

    it is 3 out of 5 games of the jets current regime but 2 out of 3 last year is correct.  it is also correct that the jets gave you 2 out of the 3 losses you had all of last year.  what do you do for a living?

    also, if the jets are jealous of the pats does that mean they really wish they lost 2 of 3 to the pats or 3 of the last 5 meetings?

    If being the Jets means fading under the glare of the spotlight, then why in the world would the Pats want to emulate that?  The Pats are a young team learning to win.  The Jets have a lot of loud mouths with free reign to spout off in the media.  It's the offseason, and Bart Scott is already talking.   

    As far as I'm concerned, Welker's act got him rightfully punished.  I'd prefer to play for a guy who instills discipline in a team like Belichick.  Have fun on your own time.  Not saying Ryan's philosophy can't work, but it makes his team utterly unlikeable.  When guys like Bart Scott and Cromagnon are free to say whatever they want, which is mostly inane and clueless banter, it probably pis$es some of their teammates off.  I would't want nutters like that speaking for me.
