Tony Dungy and Rex Ryan both get their fair share of attention and criticism when they speak their mind, so perhaps it shouldn’t be so surprising that Dungy’s comments on Ryan’s love of the “F”-bomb created such an uproar.
Ryan weighed in on the issue Wednesday morning, only after his father, among others, had their say.
Ryan said that Dungy “unfairly judged” him and those on the scene said Ryan was emotional about it and seemingly hurt.
“I’m a good person,” Ryan said.
He said he a lot of respect for Dungy, and left a message for the former Colts coach inviting him to camp to meet the “real” Ryan. You can argue with Ryan’s methods, but it’s hard to make the case that he’s phony or somehow not “real.”
In that respect, Ryan and Dungy have a lot in common.
