Forget victory, Rex is all about da-feet

For once, Rex Ryan didn’t put his own foot in his mouth.

For once, Rex Ryan didn’t put his own foot in his mouth.

Instead, Ryan spent Wednesday refusing to comment on whether his wife Michelle posted foot-fetish videos online. The first video, believed to be taken several years ago, resurfaced late Tuesday night and featured a woman who looks a lot like Michelle. There is no one else in the scene, but the man behind the camera, clearly fascinated by the woman’s bare feet, sounds an awful lot like the Jets’ second-year head coach.

“Obviously, I knew these questions were coming,”?Ryan said. “This is a personal matter and I’m not going to discuss it.”

Well, everyone else certainly will.

The first bizarre video, which runs two minutes, 16 seconds, shows the woman with her feet dangling out of a parked car. Another segment catches her drinking a beer, once again barefoot, on a sofa in a living room. Deadspin.com first reported the story, which includes user information, such as date of birth and location, on alternative websites that matches up with the Ryans.

Ryan repeatedly called it a “private matter” at his daily news conference before a team spokesman stepped in after eight questions from the media, calling for an end to all inquiries over the fetish flick.

“My wife is beautiful,”?Ryan said. “We’ve been married for 23 years. She’s awesome.”

Ryan looked glum throughout, and perhaps for the first time during his head coaching tenure, was at a loss for words. Still, he has received support from his team.

“[Owner] Woody [Johnson] and I have met with Rex,” general manager Mike Tannenbaum said in a statement. “This is a personal matter and he has our full support.”
