As the Jets prepare to face the Chicago Bears Sunday and move closer toward securing a second consecutive playoff berth, another off-field storyline has emerged.
The sports website posted that a woman who bears a physical resemblance to Jets coach Rex Ryan's wife, Michelle, appears in a number of videos described as catering to the "foot-fetish world."
The videos, which have been re-posted on YouTube after they were initially removed and posted on Deadspin, show a woman displaying her feet in shoes, stockings or barefoot. In one video, a voice that sounds like the Jets coach can be heard.
Asked about the report during a conference call earlier today with Chicago media, Ryan replied, "I know you need to ask, but it's a personal matter." Ryan will meet with local media later today.
The Jets are 10-4 after Sunday's victory in Pittsburgh against the Steelers, but have drawn attention as much for actions that have taken place outside the sideline stripes this season. Recently, an assistant coach was suspended indefinitely for tripping a Dolphins player along the sidelines. Receiver Braylon Edwards was arrested on alleged drunk driving charges. And the team earned negative headlines during the preseason for inappropriate remarks allegedly aimed at reporter Ines Sainz in the locker room.

Other than that pretty boring season.

None of my business. It is a sad state of affairs in journalism and sports as we head into the playoffs and the last two weeks of the season that this sort of sports reporting will dominate the headlines. Is the NFL sliding into the realm of "just entertainment" rather than "sports entertainment"? Will this sort of sensationalism get the fans of Oprah, Maury Povich, Dr. Phil, and National Enquirer off the couch and into football? If so I would rather they stay out of my interests because their prurient fascination(s) are just an indicator of their own lackluster lives. I could give a "****" what a married couple does at home in their private lives, even less when that sort of sensationalism invades my NFL expereince. pfffffhhhhhh to the NY tabloids dragging this forward and the coward who stole and posted these videos. Not an honorable bone in the bunch.
