Rex Ryan on Braylon's comments: I'm not the idiot

Braylon Edwards called the New York Jets a bunch of "idiots" last week for their handling of Mark Sanchez. Now Edwards is a member of the team again, and there's a disagreement over who exactly Edwards was talking about.

"(General manager) Mike (Tannenbaum) and I both are doing this (points): 'He's talking about you ... no he's talking about you,' " Rex Ryan said during his Thursday news conference. "So we are both OK with it."

Love him or hate him, comments like that are why Ryan makes such good newspaper copy. We also can't imagine Bill Belichick or Jim Harbaugh ever going out of his way to sign a guy that just publicly called him an idiot.

(That's why we'd like to wish Ryan a happy 50th birthday. Here he is in more awesome times.)

In actual football news, Rex confirmed that Edwards is healthy enough to suit upMonday night against the Tennessee Titans. Tim Tebow will remain the No. 2 quarterback, with Greg McElroy potentially active as No. 3.
