Rex Ryan’s Feet

The Con

If Rex Ryan weren’t a football coach, he would be called morbidly obese at 6’4” and over 300 pounds. The lap band surgery hasn’t helped much as Ryan, the coach of the New York Jets, still reportedly consumes over 7,000 calories a day.

A glutton of epic proportions, a man who can’t push himself away from the table or someone who is allergic to the gym? The answer probably falls to Rex Ryan’s love for food, which in the parlance of the current politically correct times is called an addiction or fetish depending on how successful you are in your chosen profession/business.

Ryan, it seems, has another addiction/fetish.

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. – New York Jets coach Rex Ryan says it’s a “personal matter” and declined to talk about a “foot-fetish” report posted by the sports website Deadspin that shows four videos of a woman who bears a close resemblance to Ryan’s wife, Michelle.

The videos show a woman displaying her toes to an off-screen cameraman who, in one video, sounds a lot like the coach. The two are having an intimate chat about her feet.

During his news conference Wednesday, Ryan declined several times to discuss the situation.

“I understand I’m going to get asked this question frontways, sideways, backways, and all this, but it is a personal matter,” he said.

When asked if the NFL might look into the situation, spokesman Greg Aiello said the league considers it “a personal matter.”

Jets general manager Mike Tannenbaum said in a brief statement that he and owner Woody Johnson have met with Ryan. They also are calling it a personal matter, adding that the coach has their “full support.”

This isn’t the first time the Jets have turned up on Deadspin this season.

In October, the site reported that Minnesota Vikings quarterback Brett Favre sent racy text messages and photos to a former game hostess while he was the Jets’ quarterback in 2008.

The NFL is still investigating the allegations.

According to Deadspin, the woman in the video goes by the handle “ihaveprettyfeet.”

A still photograph from one of the video clips was splashed across the front of the New York Daily New and showed a woman with her feet hanging out of an SUV. She is approached by someone who is not on camera and he tells her that she has “really beautiful feet.”

The other videos show the woman sitting on a couch, having a drink, reading a book and sitting on a porch and rubbing her feet…(from

I wonder if Ryan’s foot fetish comes from him not being able to see his feet.
