Rex Ryan walks into a Foot Locker wearing a Joe Namath jersey.
Namath, during a weekly radio appearance on The Michael Kay Show, hears about the homage via Rex's mall attire and was asked about it. His response was less than enthusiastic. "I'm just stunned that the jersey with No. 12 come in that size," he said.
That's despicable, Joe. How could you possibly make a joke about a man's weight when there were literally dozens of opportunities to make fun of the fact that he was walking into a Foot Locker?
Ryan didn't seem to mind the crack, probably because he knows he's large and doesn't need Joe Namath to tell him so. "Shoot, hey it doesn't matter," Ryan said when he was asked by Kay about the comments. "I'm still a huge Joe Namath fan."
Namath has been on Ryan's case all season. He criticized him for not preparing the Jets to play the Oakland Raiders and for being too nice to his players. Goodness, one can only ...

Joe Namath and Rex Ryan are the Bickersons.
5) Rex Ryan: I don't hate Rex Ryan as much as a lot of people do. Yes, he's a loudmouth, but honestly, I kind of find that refreshing. However, he's a little too much sometimes. The things that come out of his mouth about declaring Super Bowl titles multiple times come off as being the Boy who cries wolf too often . How about when he dresses up for press conferences...
Jets coach Rex Ryan went way back today in complimenting the Bills' defensive front, particularly rookie defensive lineman Marcell Dareus.
Said Ryan: "Dareus reminds me ... the way he's playing and the way Big Wiggle as I used to call him is playing - Dwan Edwards - they remind me of Ron McDole and Tom Sestak, the No. 70 that used to play in the AFL days."
Now Joe Namath is making it personal.
The former Jets quarterback fired another shot at coach Rex Ryan on his weekly Monday appearance on ESPN 1050 Radio. Namath was told that Ryan was spotted during the bye week wearing the Super Bowl III winner’s jersey.

Alright, here we go. Injury report. Mike DeVito with his knee and Kenrick Ellis with his ankle did not practice today. They were on the side with Bill Hughan our strength coach. Guys that were limited today, David Harris, ankle, Nick Mangold, ankle, Isaiah Trufant, hamstring, and then Calvin Pace, groin, was limited. Guys that were full, Marcus Dixon with a knee...
There may not be a coach Bill Belichick dislikes more than Rex Ryan, a guy who regularly takes shots at the Patriots' coach in his unceasing quest to beat his AFC East counterpart.
The Jets got a pretty big gift from the Steelers during their bye week.
By beating up the Patriots at Heinz Field, the Steelers gave the Jets a shot at vaulting themselves back into the race for the AFC East crown over the next two weeks.
It also helped that the Steelers made the Patriots' defense look about as vulnerable as a newborn gazelle in the Serengeti, although we...
