And per usual with Ryan verbal matches, his opposition had no problem firing back a response. This week was a bit different than usual, however, as it was all in good fun.
Ryan has been joking around with his twin brother Rob, who is the defensive coordinator for the Browns, all week leading into their Sunday matchup. Most of the jabs from Ryan have been directed at Rob's weight, but he's also involved Cleveland head coach Eric Mangini into the mix.
According to a report by ESPN.com, Rex Ryan jokingly announced he placed a bounty on his twin during a news conference earlier in the week. When asked if he did the same for Mangini, Ryan said Mangini is "small right now. It would be hard to hit that kind of target," alluding to Mangini's recent weight loss.
Not letting an opportunity like that slip by, Mangini shot back at Ryan, complimenting him on his attempts at a slimmer figure.
"I think everyone in New York is happy about that," Mangini said, "except maybe Macy's losing one of their floats."
The Jets and the Browns will meet up at 1 p.m. at Cleveland Browns Stadium on Sunday.
