New York Jets coach Rex Ryan apologized for the second time in as many days for his comments toward San Diego Chargers coach Norv Turner.

On Wednesday, Ryan insinuated he would've won two Super Bowls with the kind of talent Turner had in San Diego the past few seasons. Turner obviously didn't like the swipe and fired back with a small jab of his own.

But Ryan called Turner to apologize Wednesday and said he was sorry again during his news conference on Thursday.

My take: This was unnecessary and Ryan knows it. His Jets have had enough distractions the past few weeks and things were finally quiet for a couple days after they stopped their three-game losing streak. This week, Ryan is causing the distraction. He's providing bulletin-board material for the Chargers (4-1) and has no one to blame but himself.
