Giants take shots at Jets

Justin Tuck cast away any lingering doubt about who is the best football team in New York.

As he walked onto the stage during Tuesday's Super Bowl celebration at the stadium, the Giants defensive end held up the Lombardi Trophy for close to 45,000 people to see.

"There's one thing you can be sure of," he later said to the MetLife Stadium crowd. "Whose house this is."

Of course, the not-so-veiled shot was aimed directly at the New York Jets -- and more specifically, Rex Ryan.

The Jets head coach wrote in his book, "Play Like You Mean It," that the Jets "are the better team. We are the big brother." And neither Tuck, nor Giants Chairman/Executive VP Steve Tisch took kindly to those words -- or the midseason assumptions that the Jets were on par, or even better, than the Giants.

"Nobody asked me if the Jets were going to take over this town," said Tisch. "I would have had my own answer. Actually, we answered it two nights ago."
