The New York Jets have at all times been and also will be considerably obsessed with the New York Giants. There’s no denying it — that’s simply the way in which it’s.
Being considered as second-best in New York/New Jersey has by no means sat effectively with the Jets and we’ve seen that manifest by their followers (see: Fireman Ed), head coaches (see: Rex Ryan), their gamers (see: Bart Scott) and even their social media group.
Shortly after the Giants chosen famous person operating again Saquon Barkley at No. 2 total within the 2018 NFL Draft, the Jets social media group readied their large jab. And after NFL commissioner Roger Goodell introduced Gang Inexperienced’s number of quarterback Sam Darnold, the tweet went out.

Oh, what a zinger! Or a minimum of that’s what they thought on the time.
Many believed Darnold was the participant Huge Blue ought to have chosen as an alternative of Barkley. He was extremely rated on most draft boards and considered as a “can’t miss” quarterback prospect who would take over because the franchise for somebody.
That’s actually what the Jets believed, however not even three years later, that whole scenario has modified dramatically.
On Monday, the Jets traded Darnold to the Carolina Panthers in change for 3 draft picks after a remarkably underwhelming three seasons in East Rutherford. Over that span, the Jets went 13-25 within the 38 video games began by Darnold, whereas he accomplished beneath 60% of his passes for simply 8,097 yards, 45 touchdowns and 39 interceptions.
For sure, the Jets’ tried troll job has not aged effectively and will function a reminder to get their very own home so as earlier than going after the Giants. In any case, what number of occasions are these jabs on the Giants going to explode of their faces earlier than they study their lesson?
