Trash is our bread and butter

If fans watch the NHL for the fights and watch NASCAR for the crashes, they increasingly watch the NFL for trash talking, and the backing up of said trash talking with smash-mouth football.

Talk big, win bigger

Trash talk is good for the NFL, the media and football fans. Say what you want to say and prove your worth on the field, just as the Jets did Sunday night.

Rex's hype machine

All the trash talking from the New York Jets is a calculated tactic from Rex Ryan to hype his players up and make them feel the world is against them. It may be crazy, it may be genius or it may be both. Either way, it's good for the NFL.

Please shut up

It's time for Rex Ryan, Antonio Cromartie and the Jets to shut up and play football or risk alienating their fanbase and the rest of the NFL.

Walking the walk

Increased media coverage of the NFL has incited more trash talking than ever - the effects of which could be seen Sunday in New England.
