Ryan jokes Sanchez tattoo could change if quarterback’s play doesn’t improve

Jets coach Rex Ryan promised the team will be "dangerous" next year. "You're not going to want to play the Jets."

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. — The big, bold statements are back — and so is Rex Ryan.

"We are going to be a dangerous football team," Ryan warned Tuesday. "I can promise you that. I'm going to tell you: You're not going to want to play the Jets."

Ryan's much-discussed tattoo of his wife wearing a Sanchez jersey — photographed while he was in the Bahamas — also came up. The coach said he has had it on his right arm for nearly three years, and was able to joke about all the commotion.

"I know what you're thinking: Obviously, if Sanchez doesn't play better that number is changing," Ryan said, smiling. "I've been married 25 years and, in my eyes, my wife is the most beautiful woman in the world."
