There’s never a dull moment in the world of Rex Ryan.
On Friday, the New York Daily News published a picture of Rex Ryan relaxing on vacation. Doesn’t sound unusual, right?
Where the picture gets a little strange is the tattoo that was discovered on Ryan’s right bicep. The drawing of a woman, presumed to be Mrs. Ryan, wearing a football jersey seems normal at first. However, when taking a closer look at the tat, it is clear that his wife is wearing nothing but a Mark Sanchez jersey.
The tattoo has been the talk of the sports world for the last two days. Some are wondering why this is even a story while others are wondering how Ryan has kept his job with the Jets.
There’s no issue with a man getting an erotic tattoo of his wife. It shows loyalty to the woman that he has sworn to spend the rest of his life with. The real issue with the tattoo is that he Ryan put a Sanchez jersey on her.
It shows the man crush that Ryan has with Sanchez and might explain why he didn’t pull the plug on his struggling quarterback earlier in the season. The Jets were not a good team this year, but if they had just decent quarterback play, they would have had a realistic shot to steal a wildcard spot.

Because of this, Woody Johnson should take a closer look at his head coach. As a coach your main job is to win football games, not to play favorites and that is clearly what Ryan has done with Sanchez.
After two very successful seasons to start his tenure in New York, Ryan has had two terrible years that have filled with lies from everyone in the organization and mediocre play on the field.
This year has shown a lot of things about Ryan. The lies he has told the media and fan base dating back to last season when he claimed he didn’t know what happened with Santonio Holmes in Miami to this year when he called this “the best team” that he has coached in New York.
He has shown serious flaws as a head coach and his brash personality that was loved at first when the team was winning has gotten old quick. This may not be the direct reason as to why Sanchez was kept at quarterback for so long, but it proves that he favored his first draft pick and it may have cost them this season.
We will have to wait until Tuesday to hear from Rex and the organization because of their media hiatus, but there is no doubt it will be an interesting press conference. The tattoo is just the latest news from the head clown of the world’s biggest circus, and unless the Jets want to keep that image, it is time to part ways with Rex Ryan.
