New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan never has a dull press conference. Saturday’s post-practice conference shook things up more than usual.
Instead of fielding questions at the podium as he would normally do, Ryan acted as a reporter and allowed ESPN New York beat writer Rich Cimini to field questions.
Ryan initially asked about the Jets’ injury report, to which Cimini replied with a typical Rex Ryan answer: he needed to check with the team doctor. Ryan also asked Cimini how tough it is to write an article when the team has a boring day.
“When we have a boring, flat day like you said, we come into the press conference hoping, counting on that you will give us something to write about,” Cimini said jokingly, via NJ.com. “Giving us a good quote, or some news, a headline. But I think today is one of those days where we’re really not helping the cause.”
The two would go on to discuss what it’s like to be a reporter and, of course, the infamous “Tebowmania” that took over when quarterback Tim Tebow was a member of the Jets during the 2012 season.
