New York Jets’ quarterback Mark Sanchez who started 15 games for the team had a 6-9 record as the starter and had a very poor season with an embarrassing 66.9 QB Rating, a 54.3 completion percentage, and a whopping 32 turnovers in the 2012-13 NFL season (18 INT’s and 14 fumbles).
Yet, with all the hardships under center, Jets’ coach Rex Ryan did not budge and instead allowed the slumping Sanchez to continue and play throughout games. Many New York fans were left stunned, but we may have finally solved the reason as to why Rex Ryan had been so adamant about starting QB Mark Sanchez.
While on vacation in the Bahamas, a photograph was taken of coach Rex Ryan and his arm, which showed a tattoo of his wife wearing a Mark Sanchez number six jersey. Apparently, Ryan has had the tattoo for years, but has managed to keep it under wraps.
After taking the picture, Rex Ryan supposedly scolded and scared away the reporter, but damage was unfortunately already done.
The fact that Rex Ryan would even get a tattoo of one of his players is insane. If Ryan was so determined to get a tattoo, why not of Raven’s future Hall of Fame linebacker Ray Lewis? At least the tattoo would’ve been commendable. With Rex Ryan, you just never know what you’re going to get.
Talk about the Jets continuing to hit the newspapers for all the wrong reasons. Even with the season done, the “Gang Green Circus” seems to still be open.
