Did you guys hear about the shots being fired back and forth between Rex Ryan and Norv Turner as the Jets and Chargers prepare to play each other this Sunday?
Jim Rome was talking about it this morning, first thing on his show. Apparently Rex had been asked what kind of success he thought he would have had if he had been hired as Chargers head coach after he interviewed for the job at the same time Norv did in 2007. Ryan responded by saying,"Well, I think I would have had a couple of rings," Ryan said with a laugh during a conference call with San Diego media. "I'm tellin' ya. Those teams were loaded." Then after he thought about what he had said, he called Norv to apologize. Norv hadn't heard Rex's quote, and didn't understand what Rex was apologizing about. After he hung up the phone, he found out what it was all about, and had a comment of his own. He said, "...I was wondering if he had those rings with the ones he's guaranteed the past couple of years."
Jim Rome said, "NORVEL! ....I didn't know you had it in you!" Pretty funny stuff.
