Rex Ryan seen with tattoo of his wife in a Mark Sanchez jersey

Now we know why Rex Ryan stuck with Mark Sanchez for so long

If you watched the Jets at all this season, you'd know that Mark Sanchez is one of the worst quarterbacks in the NFL, and he frequently did whatever it took to eliminate any hopes whatsoever of a Jets win.

Still, somehow, Jets head coach Rex Ryan stuck with him for almost the entire season. Much-ballyhooed backup Tim Tebow never got a chance, and 3rd stringer Greg McElroy only got one chance to show what he could do.

Everyone was wondering why Rex Ryan stuck with Sanchez for so long, despite it being painfully obvious that Sanchez didn't even remotely resemble a competent NFL QB.

Well... now we know, thanks to the New York Daily News:

Yes, that's a tattoo of his wife wearing a Sanchez jersey on Rex Ryan's bicep.

Apparently, Rex got inked up after Sanchez "led" the Jets to their second straight AFC Championship game appearance.

That means the Jets have gone 14-18 since he got the tattoo, and Sanchez has had an incredible 60 combined turnovers (36 interceptions, 24 fumbles).

Sounds like a curse to me. Rex Ryan needs to get rid of that tattoo, before things get even worse for the Jets.

Seriously, Rex?  Sanchez's number? Double zero that ish or something.
