Yes, it appeared legitimate -- their constant struggle for tabloid back pages and the Jets' past humiliation at playing inside old Giants Stadium -- but it lacks that special something, according to Jets linebacker Bart Scott.
"Like I said, when I was in Baltimore, I could remember with the Redskins, you had guys fighting over strippers and all kinds of stuff," Scott told WEPN-AM. "I don't sense that here. I think it is a mutual respect. I think the town is big enough for both of us."
The Jets and Giants can live peacefully in New York, but -- bear with us as we do the math -- the greater Baltimore/D.C. metro grid isn't wide enough to house the appropriate number of exotic dancers for its two pro football teams.
Sounds like a burning civic issue asking for immediate attention.
