The Tattoo

There was some major breaking news yesterday involving New York Jets Head Coach Rex Ryan. Wait for it, Ryan has a tattoo. Incredible, I know. Ryan doesnít only have a tattoo on his right arm but it looks like itís his wife wearing a Jets jersey. The number also appears to be 6. Who is number 6 on the roster? That would be Mark Sanchez.

This news is stunning and it was all over the media yesterday. The crazy part is this wasnít a TMZ story where their field people tracked Ryan down in the Bahamas and captured the photograph. The story was all over the New York newspapers and radio. What has happened to journalism?

We really have to ask ourselves, how is a story like this news? I hate to say it but weíre not in the early 1900ís where only sailors or criminals had tattoos. If you watch any sporting event the majority of the players have them. Go watch your favorite band in concert Iím willing to bet most of the band members have ink. Your doctor or dentist can easily have a full sleeve underneath their work attire. Why is it front page news that a football coach has a tattoo?

Are we really supposed to believe Ryan refused to bench Mark Sanchez because he might have a tattoo of him on his arm? That has to be the most asinine thing Iíve ever heard. As bad as Sanchez was this season he probably is the best quarterback on the roster which isnít saying much. We know Tim Tebow plays better in games than in practice but if Tebowís such a great team player why doesnít he change positions? Thereís this notion that he carried the Denver Broncos to the playoffs last season but no one seems to remember that the Broncos defense was playing out of their minds and was holding every team to low points in their wins.

The Broncos went 7-4 with Tebow as the starter. In their seven wins the defense held teams to 15, 24, 10, 13, 13, 32 and 10 points. That averages out to just less than 17 points a game. An NFL quarterback should be able to get his team to 17 points a game which he did to his credit. It doesnít mean it would have worked this season for the Jets.

There was also sentiment that Ryan could lose his players because of the tattoo. How is that even possible? For all of Ryanís faults, his players love playing for him. Did anyone even think that maybe Ryanís wife wanted him to get the tattoo and since he loves his wife he obliged? You think Darrelle Revis is going to be upset because Ryan didnít get a number 24 for the jersey number? Is it possible 5 could have been Bubby Brister? You could look at anyoneís tattoo and think itís bizarre or comical. Tattoos are oneís own preference and style. The great part about this is we donít even know if itís real.

The Jets have a press conference scheduled for Tuesday where Ryan will talk to the media. Itís been uproar because the media claims every team is supposed to have their year-end press conference within one week of their season ending. The Jets have been getting killed for four years because they talk too much but now theyíre quiet and theyíre getting killed. They really canít win and itís due to the gossiping New York media. The fans donít care what Ryan has to say right now because we donít even have a general manager. What is Ryan going to tell us that is newsworthy at this point?

Itís sad that a man canít even go on vacation without causing a media firestorm due to body ink.
