Eric's red-hot Jets ice Pack (RICH CIMINI, 12/04/06, NY DAILY NEWS)

The Jets' first act of defiance yesterday occurred during pregame warmups at Lambeau Field, where the temperature was 19 degrees and the wind-chill was 2. B.J. Askew, responding to taunts from the bundled-up Packer faithful, went shirtless for 15 minutes, revealing a tattoo on his back that captured his team's mind-set:


"It was just to send a message to them that we're not afraid of the cold, that we're here to play football," said the Jets' fullback, explaining his brrrrazen act.

The Jets maintained that attitude for the next three hours, acting like they owned the place.

Even more satisfuying for Jets fans was watching Herman Edwards chunder a game his team had to win.
