PLAYERS: Rex RyanMark Sanchez
TEAMS: New York Jets
Rex Ryan covered up his tacky tattoo of his wife clad only in a Mark Sanchez jersey with an even less subtle "I heart me" T-shirt. Yesterday, the New York Jets head coach was spotted at the same Bahamas resort wearing the faded black tee shielding the public from the infamous ink on his right arm. At least this fashion miscue can be removed without a laser. It's usually pretty hard to know what Ryan has up his sleeve but on Friday the whole nation found out about the bizarre tattoo and maybe his wife Michelle asked him to cover it up. The T-shirt is funny but the formerly clownish Ryan would have had us rolling on the ground by sporting a Sanchez jersey to cover it up. The big loser is Ryan — who can't show off his new slimmer beach body.

Caribbean storm: Rex Ryan has Mark Sanchez tattoo

With the ink not even dry on the New York Jets' dreadful season, Rex Ryan fled to the Bahamas only to be photographed lounging poolside at a resort hotel, book in hand, with an interesting tattoo gracing his right biceps. It showed his wife, Michelle, wearing an unmistakably green Jets jersey emblazoned with the unmistakable No. 6 of embattled quarterback Mark Sanchez. And nothing...

Rex Ryan’s fatherly love for Mark Sanchez

Mark Sanchez’s 2012 New York Jets season was full of interceptions and fumbles—and he even threw in an unprecedented buttfumble for good measure. Week after week, Jets Nation watched in horror as our starting quarterback severely underperformed, and even more alarmingly, was not benched. Rex Ryan stuck by his guy, saying that “Mark gives us the best chance to win.” We all...

Rex Ryan’s bizarre tattoo of his wife in nothing but a Mark Sanchez jersey

File this under “you have to see it to believe it.”  What on earth was Rex Ryan thinking getting a tattoo of his wife wearing nothing but a Mark Sanchez jersey?  Not only is this extremely weird, but it seems as though it would be a huge conflict of interest.  It seems as though Rex has labeled Sanchez as his favorite, and this could explain why he kept giving Sanchez so many...

C’mon Man!: Jet’s coach Rex Ryan has tattoo of his wife in Mark Sanchez jersey

Report: Rex Ryan’s Job Safe for Next Year, With Jets General Manager Candidates Told They Must Keep Coach

Just think of it like marrying into a family — except, instead of getting drunk uncle and that spunky sister-in-law, you get Rex Ryan. That’s apparently what the Jets are telling the candidates to replace recently fired general manager Mike Tannenbaum. Owner Woody Johnson said Monday, when he fired Tannenbaum, that Ryan’s job was safe, and Rich Cimini of ESPN now reports that...

49ers’ Tom Gamble Favorite To Land Jets GM Job?

Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports that 49ers’ director of player personnel Tom Gamble is the “front runner” to replace Mike Tannenbaum as the Jets GM.

Tattoo You

There's been a big hullabaloo on Friday about Jets head coach Rex Ryan sporting a tattoo of his wife wearing a Bubby Brister jersey. That's nothing. Why, just recently Jeff Wilpon was spotted in St. Tropez with his shirt off. I for one was horrified at what I saw: I shouldn't subject you to a closer look, but I had to know what that was on his chest. It couldn...
