Leave it to Rex Ryan to make headlines without saying a thing. The embattled head coach of the New York Jets is on vacation in the Bahamas where he was spotted poolside with an interesting new tattoo. It appears to be a shot of his wife sporting nothing but a Mark Sanchez Jersey. Now another interesting aspect is the positioning of the pose his wife is in – is that a Tebow-like kneel down? (Larger version of photo after the jump).
With the Giants missing the playoffs for the second time after winning a Super Bowl you would think reporters would be more interested in that failure, but the Jets can one up their stadium buddies when it comes to headlines. As Woody Johnson searches for a new GM to replace Mike Tannenbaum, has to fire Tony Sparano still, already fired the strength and conditioning coach, and has to have a long talk about the direction of the franchise I can’t see this being something he wants to answer questions about.
I like Rex Ryan. I think he gets his team to play every week even without having any really talent on the offensive side of the ball, but this types of headlines really do paint him in the wrong light which is unfortunate. This will be an interesting press conference next Tuesday. I would like to think their will be more tattoo questions than Tebow questions, but I just don’t think that will happen.
