FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- A couple of days before the season opener, Rex Ryan delivered a fiery speech to the New York Jets, expressing his anger with the media's perception of the organization -- you know, the whole circus thing. Basically, he told the players: Let's go out and show 'em we're not a bunch of clowns. For one glorious afternoon, the Jets were nothing to laugh at. They were magnificent, blowing out the Buffalo Bills at home and restoring hope after an awful preseason.
