PLAYERS: Rex RyanJosh Cribbs
TEAMS: New York Jets
Jets head coach Rex Ryan wants his players rested and ready to go against the Patriots and it sounds like he told his guys to relax at home and not do too much. Jets wide receiver Josh Cribbs told the media that Rex told them, “don’t do nothing for your wife.” Rookie Sheldon Richardson got the message. “Most definitely,” said Richardson, when he  was asked if Ryan was referring to sex, per the NY Daily News. Rex later claimed he wasn’t talking about sex. Later on Ryan stated that he meant chores, not sex. Once again that’s not the story Cribbs told. “He was like…rest your legs, you go home, don’t do nothing for your wife. Say baby, next week,” said Cribbs. “You’ll take out the trash next week. I’ll take the kids to practice next week but I’ve got to rest for this game. “I’m going to tell him to put him on paper so when I give it to my wife, I can be like, Rex said that I don’t got to take out the trash. So he might get a call.”   Need NFL Tickets? Loading... ZergNet The post Rex Ryan tells his players to avoid sex during Patriots week appeared first on Pro Football Zone.

Rex Ryan wants to beat the Patriots so bad he's telling players to abstain from sex, or maybe he isn't
