Rex Ryan: I didn’t tell Jets players not to have sex

Story Topics

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. — Rex Ryan has provided plenty of memorable quotes during his four-plus years as coach of the New York Jets. This one, though, might have topped them all.

No, it wasn't a guarantee or bold prediction. In an attempt to clarify what he told his players at a team meeting earlier this week, Ryan offered this declaration Thursday to avoid some apparent confusion:

"I did not tell our players that they couldn't have sex," Ryan said.

Newly acquired Josh Cribbs said Wednesday he could tell how much Ryan wants to beat New England, telling his players to put off doing chores around the house until next week. Some players mistakenly thought Ryan implied that sex was also on his banned "honey-do" list.

"Somebody misinterpreted the message apparently," Ryan said with a smile.
