Jets linebacker Bart Scott took the Patriots-Jets rivalry to another level Friday when he threatened to intentionally injure Patriots wide receiver Wes Welker for his comments about New York coach Rex Ryan.
"I'll tell you what," Scott told Newsday Friday. "Be very careful what you say about our coach. His Welker's days in a uniform will be numbered. Put it like that."
Welker's press conference Thursday was laced with references to feet and toes, an apparent reference to Ryan's foot fetish, which surfaced recently on the Internet.
LeBron James and Paul Pierce were among those to voice their support for the Patriots during their AFC Championship win over the Steelers Sunday night at Gillette Stadium.
Pierce seemingly took a playful jab at Matt Ryan after tweeting throughout the Pats’ win. Pierce posted multiple pictures of himself during the AFC Championship, tweeting at the end of the game that he didn’t love the former BC quarterback’s odds against Tom Brady.
James, meanwhile, gave props to Pats running back LeGarrette Blount, who had a rushing touchdown in the third quarter.
