Rex Ryan Has a Tattoo

Al Bello

The biggest story being covered by the media on the Jets today has nothing to do with the team's general manager search. It has nothing to do with potential shakeups in the coaching staff. It has nothing to do with potential offseason moves. It's that Rex Ryan was photographed with a tattoo on his arm of his wife in a Mark Sanchez jersey by the Daily News.

Since it's such a big story about the Jets, I figure we should have a post about it. And now we do.

Actual things said by members of the media about this:

Gary Myers:

Obviously, there was another reason Ryan was reluctant to play Tim Tebow this season aside from Tebow’s inability to throw a forward pass. Who wants to go through having the No. 6 replaced by No. 15? Maybe if Tebow played better, Ryan would have displayed him on his left arm.

Okay, make all the jokes you want, but the issue now is how this plays out in the Jets locker room. How does Sanchez feel about his coach having a tattoo with his jersey being worn by the coach’s wife, who is wearing nothing else, permanently drawn on his coach’s arm?

This classic work of art could affect Ryan’s credibility with his players. Will they tease him about it? Will they be jealous of Sanchez? Will they think of Sanchez as the teacher’s pet? Couldn’t Ryan have expressed his ever-lasting love for the Jets with just a generic green jersey without a number?

Jane McManus (I am generally a fan of McManus):

Re Ryan's tattoo: There wouldn't be a Daily News photographer in the Bahamas if the Jets had held their end of season presser Monday.

I'm not making that up. Those were things actually said.
