FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) — Rex Ryan thinks his New York Jets secondary is second to none, no matter what anyone thinks. And that includes Randy McMichael.

The bitter San Diego tight end said the Jets' defensive backs aren't "anything" after New York's 27-21 win Sunday, and added that the Chargers beat themselves and "it had nothing to do with anyone on their team." That amused Ryan, who was asked Monday what he thought of McMichael's comments.

"Stay classy, San Diego," a smiling Ryan said, stealing a line made famous by Will Ferrell's character, Ron Burgundy, in the movie "Anchorman."

Ryan opened his press conference Monday by praising his defensive backs, including Darrelle Revis, whose interception set up the go-ahead score for the Jets. Kyle Wilson's pick a few minutes later sealed the win.
