Earlier this month Jets coach Rex Ryan found himself in a scandal when “foot fetish” videos were released featuring his wife Michelle. On Thursday (Jan. 13) Patriots’ wide receiver Wes Welker had a press interview where he worked in the words “foot,” “feet,” and “toes,” 11 times. And so the war of words has begun.
Even though Rex Ryan refuses to discuss the leaked videos, he goes on to say this. “With Wes Welker, well, I think this is a huge rivalry type game and anything goes. I can take it,” Ryan said Friday. “I’m not going to discuss it, but I can take it.”
Since the first images appeared last month, the topic has been taboo for the coach. He has steadfastly refused to comment on it, calling it a “personal matter.”
Ryan and Welker will come head to head in Sunday’s divisional playoff game. Who thinks this isn’t the end of their feud?
