NFL won’t look into Ryan-Jacobs scrap

The NFL will not look into an altercation involving New York Giants running back Brandon Jacobs and Jets coach Rex Ryan after the Giants’ 29-14 victory Saturday, the New York Daily News reported, citing a source.

The two engaged in a heated exchange, with Jacobs telling Ryan, "Time to shut up, fat boy," after a week in which the Jets coach repeatedly trash talked the Giants, the New York Post reported.

Prior to the confrontation, Jacobs had referred to Ryan as a "disrespectful bastard," and said, "The Jets have a big-mouthed, big-bellied coach that talks too much."

He added, "He’s a great coach, and I take nothing away from him. Comes from a great coaching family, but he just needs to shut up."

After delivering that message through the media, he then delivered the message in person.

"I know he told me, ‘Shut the ‘F’ up. Wait ’til we win the Super Bowl,’" Jacobs said, recalling the confrontation, according to the Post.

"And I told him I’ll punch him in his face."

Jacobs was asked if he had said something to Ryan prior to that exchange.

"I told him out of all of these Giant players on this football team, you’re talking to the wrong one," Jacobs said.

Jacobs also said that he did not initiate the exchange.

"I wasn’t talking to him … He just came out of nowhere and started at me," Jacobs said. "It was a great win for us. I don’t want to harp on that.

"We’re gonna celebrate this win, and I’m gonna let him have the worst Christmas he can have."

Reacting the rift, Ryan said, "We had a private conversation. That’s all I’ll leave it as. Whatever. He doesn’t like me. I respect him but I could care less about him."
