Since today is September 11th, before we mention anything football-related here at Acme Packing Company, we want to take a moment to remember the tragic events that took place thirteen years ago. Our thoughts are with anyone who lost a loved one during the events of that day.

Now to football.

Jets coach Rex Ryan was making some waves this week with some of his comments in a media conference call, so we have links to those comments and the reaction from one Green Bay Packers player in particular who was mentioned on the call. We've also got a look at the supposedly faster Packers offense and one set of Power Rankings in which the Packers come in at the top spot.

In response to Ryan's comment that Pryor will knock your face in, Clinton-Dix had this to say: "You're going to continue to see that out of me. If that's what they thought, hey, that's on him. I'm going to show him." I like it.
