Rex wears Namath jersey; Namath zings Rex

Joe Namath has ripped Rex Ryan for many things this year.

But, according to a joking Ryan, "nothing has hurt more" than when Broadway Joe cracked on Rex's weight.

The subject arose after Ryan admitted to wearing a Namath jersey during a trip to the mall over the bye week.

Namath, on his regular spot with ESPN New York 1050's "The Michael Kay Show," said, "I'm just stunned that the jersey with No. 12 come in that size."

Namath has been critical of Ryan all year, saying his team wasn't prepared for their game at Oakland and claiming Ryan was too nice to his players.

"Shoot, hey it doesn't matter," Ryan said when asked about wearing the jersey. "I'm still a huge Joe Namath fan."

He added: "Any fan or any Jets alum is welcome to their opinion. It doesn’t mean I have to like it or agree with it."
