An angry Rex Ryan faced the media after his New York Jets were manhandled 34-0 by the San Francisco 49ers sounding more like Chef Ramsey than Vince Lombardi.  The slow-boiling head coach opened up his press conference by saying:

"I apologize for my language because  I was going to say we got out butts kicked,  but we got our asses kicked. Here's a recipe for getting your asses kicked.  Two-for-13 on third down ... four turnovers, a blocked punt when they rush one guy and giving up 245 yards rushing.  How's that for a recipe?"

The simmering Ryan went on to say he would give his team a couple of days to "soul search."

"It's obviously unacceptable," he fumed.  "It starts with the coaches.  The players are not going to be in on Monday or Tuesday.  They've got to dig deep, look down at themselves ."

What must really have Ryan steaming is the fact that the 49ers represent a team he wants the Jets to be  — a beefy stew containing a stout defense,  a grinding running game with a dash of Wildcat offense — but it was the Niners who served it up to the Jets fans in MetLife Stadium.


Ryan could only watch as the 49ers rumbled for 245 yards on the ground and even used his Tim Tebow-style Wildcat for a touchdown to rub salt in his wounds.

"It's not something I ever want to go through again," said Ryan.  "I can tell you that much."

The Jets coach bristled  when asked if he would finally replace Mark Sanchez — 13-of-29 for only 103 yards and a costly fumble —with Tebow to shake up the tepid offense.

"Mark is the answer," said Ryan, adding.  "But time will tell."

It's hard to tell if the sporadically used Tebow can do anything to shake the team from its doldrums.  The Jets backup quarterback ran twice yesterday and completed his only pass which ended up as a fumble.  He looked flatter than a Denver omelette.



Seeing his best offensive weapon receiver Santonio Holmes carted off the field  probably has Ryan losing his appetite anyway.

The 34-0 drubbing was the worst home loss in Jets history and, if that chant for "Tebow-Tebow-Tebow" Sunday afternoon was faint, it's only because there were so few masochistic Gang Green fans left in the stands by the end of the game.

Still, Ryan has to be hearing those words in his head today.
