In life, sometimes we try to make jokes. Sometimes, those jokes are great, and sometimes, they fall flat.
On Sunday, Logan Ryan’s joke about Dolphins QB Tua Tagovailoa after the Giants’ 20-9 loss to the Dolphins fell flat.
Ryan said the following about Tua:
“Look, I don’t know if you guys saw my high school quarterback tape, but I’m going to put it out there, emergency,” Ryan said Sunday. “A lot like Tua, a lefty. I can throw 2 yard passes to the left. I’m accurate. I’m smart. I’m going to put it out there. But, look, we’re going to do what we’ve got to do.”
Dolphins WR DeVante Parker did not like those comments, and he said the following about Ryan’s remarks on Instagram.
“Hold that L boi keep quiet,” Parker said.
On Thursday, Ryan apologized:
Hey guys, I’m just going to start by clearing it up. I want to apologize to (Dolphins Quarterback) Tua (Tagovailoa). I didn’t mean any disrespect. I made a light-hearted comment about me playing quarterback,” he said. “I think he’s a good player. He’s humble. He approaches the game the right way, and he made game-winning plays to beat us, and they won the game. I’m not a sore loser. I don’t hate on players in the league. I have a lot of respect for players in this league. I’ve been in this league, and he’s doing it the right way. I wish him the best, and I want him to know there’s no disrespect there or any bad beef there. Just a comment that went the wrong way, and I was trying to be funny, and it wasn’t funny, and I don’t want to disrespect him.”
New York might be able to use Ryan at the quarterback position as Daniel Jones(neck) will be out for his second consecutive game, and backup QB Mike Glennon is in concussion protocol. However, Giants head coach Joe Judge expects Glennon to be good to go as New York will go on the road to battle the Chargers. If Glennon can’t go, Jake Fromm, who was signed off the Bills’ practice squad last week, could get the start for the Giants.
