Dolphins linebacker Channing Crowder loves sparring back and forth with the Jets — notably coach Rex Ryan — in the media

And now that Crowder's former teammate and friend Jason Taylor is on the other side of the battle, he's making sure to give Taylor the business.

When asked if he was going to watch HBO's Hard Knocks, which features the Jets at training camp, here is what Crowder responded: "I want to see JT [Jason Taylor] and laugh at him. I was talking to him the other night and I was making fun of him, so I just want to see him out there embarrass himself.

"He's a real pretty boy," Crowder continued. "He had makeup with Dancing with the Stars and all that, so he might put on makeup. ...He's gonna perform for the cameras, 'cause he's a showman. ...he's very womanly."

Wow, so that's walking a fine line between good-natured ribbing and emasculating a friend. We'll see if Taylor, who usually flies above the trash talking, responds.
