Karen Guregian notes Rex Ryan was asked if he would have made the same call as Bill Belichick.
If I would have made that decision and it wouldn’t have worked, I’d be hanging from the Empire State Building.
Bill Belichick responds to whether the Jets defense surprised them in week 2.
No. We knew they were a pressure team. They're a good defense. They've done a good job. They're one of the best defenses in the league. They haven't given up very many points at all on the defensive side of the ball. They have a good scheme. They've got good players. They've played well against everybody and they certainly played well against us down there in Giants Stadium. We know they're a good defense and they do a good job. For us to win, we're going to have to be more competitive in all three phases of the game, but certainly offensively we're going to have to get the ball in the end zone. I don't think you can expect to beat the Jets just by kicking a couple of field goals. That's not going to be enough.
Chris Baker on if the Patriots have contempt for the Jets
I don't think so. I thought there was when I came up here, but it's really not. It has everything to do with one game at a time. Obviously, it's a rivalry. They know us. We know them. It was nothing that I thought it was being on that side of the rivalry. I always thought that they didn't respect us. It couldn't be further than what is in here. We have more of a healthy respect for what they do.
