Rex Ryan made headlines in 2010 as coach of the Jets when his wife allegedly posted foot fetish videos online. He leaned into that reputation a little this morning, dropping an epic opening line.
“I’m a toe expert,” he said, which clearly sent the set into an uproar, then claiming Aaron Rodgers injury was fine.
The NFL MVP candidate seems to be on the other side of the conversation, saying that it is not getting better.
“It feels worse,” Rodgers told CBS Sports. “I don’t know what kind of setback that I had tonight, but we will look at it tomorrow, but I definitely took a step back tonight.” Rodgers hasn’t ruled out having surgery on the toe. But he’ll hold off on that until the pain gets to him. “I can’t make that call right now. We’ll look at it tomorrow and do a film.
“That would be last resort for sure, but I’ll have to see what kind of setback it was tonight.”
Do a film, you say. Now you have really piqued Ryan’s interest…
Rodgers most recently led the Packers to a 45-30 victory over the Chicago Bears on Sunday night, and is making a case for challenging Tom Brady for the top qb honor following a performance that saw him throw for 341 and four touchdowns with a 141.1 passer rating.
Through 12 games, Rodgers has completed 67.3% of his passes for 3,219 yards and 27 touchdowns against just four interceptions.
It was not the first time Rodgers reference Rex, TO THE TAPE:
With his poor decision to get engaged to Shailine Woodley, and publicly argue with the Packers, the offseason was tumultuous to say the least. He then got in some public trouble with his Covid situation, where he said he was immunized against it but not vaccinated, and then caught the virus.
Well, whatever, it’s Rex and his expertise versus Rodgers and what he feels. Clearly, Rodgers would know, but we love Rex for this.
