I have enough to do keeping up with the Giants when they make their weekly radio appearances, like the one Antrel Rolle just made on WFAN. So far this week it’s been pretty quiet in terms of talking points coming from those paid spots.

But apparently Jets linebacker Bart Scott was on with Michael Kay yesterday and said some non-inflammatory things about the Giants. sent along the transcript as Scott talks about the rivalry between the Giants and the Jets and compares it to when he was in Baltimore and the Ravens and Redskins were fighting over, well …

“When I was in Baltimore I could remember with the Redskins you had guys fighting over strippers and all kind of stuff,” he said. “I don’t sense that here. I think it is a mutual respect. I think the town is big enough for both of us. I think we were just trying to make a statement that hey we wanted a little bit bigger piece of the spotlight because when I got here my sense was pretty much all Giants type of town. We played in Giants Stadium. We just want to get our piece of the pie. We respect them, but we would definitely love – we look forward to that game. I believe it is the 24th of December for bragging rights and hoping that’s the game that could help us win this division.”

Luckily, Kay backtracked.

“Bart you gotta help me out,” he said. “You guys fought for strippers? What does that mean?”

Apparently exactly what it sounds like.

“When you are in a small place like Baltimore and the temperature is relatively cold, hey, you compete over the same chicks,” Scott said. “That’s a football player’s favorite spot. Especially young football players. It was always a rivalry. Guys fight about ‘Hey, that’s my girlfriend’ and ‘That’s my girlfriend.’ But here? Five million people, maybe more. There is plenty for everybody.”
