Rob Ryan on his brother: 'He is a little freaky I guess'

Whether Rex Ryan likes it or not, his much publicized (and alleged) foot fetish is back in the news.

The New York Jets are preparing to square off with the Dallas Cowboys in the season opener this weekend and so the Ryan brothers are getting ready to do battle. Rob Ryan is in his first season as the defensive coordinator of the Cowboys.

Rex Ryan came under scrutiny when alleged foot fetish videos involving his wife Michelle came to light late last season. He repeatedly called it a “personal matter.”

His brother was a little more revealing, shall we say, when the topic came up on Monday.

Aw hell, who cares?" Rob Ryan said Monday, according to Clarence Hill of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. "Believe me, everybody has whatever screwed up thing going on. I don't care. I'm sure you do, and everybody else that points fingers. Who cares? Everybody has a life off the field. Who gives a crap? I'm sure I'm worse than he is. So big deal."

Rob Ryan called his brother freaky and more or less confirmed the videos.

“Naw, I mean hell, he is a little freaky I guess," Rob Ryan said. "Hell, I don't know. I like everything about my wife. She got great feet, too. She got everything nice. What the hell."

What the hell?
