Jets Coach Rex Ryan On Feet... Devin Hester's And Others

Bears return specialist and sometime wide receiver Devin Hester set an NFL record Monday night with his 14th career return touchdown, in the 40-14 blowout of the Vikings.

Teams say this all the time: “We’re not going to kick to Hester.” And then they do. Chicago Breaking Sports says that Jets coach Rex Ryan is determined to kick away from Hester:

“I think it’s pretty safe to say we’re planning on not kicking to him,” Ryan said Wednesday in a teleconference with Chicago media. "I think you can write that down as everybody else I’m sure doesn’t want to kick to him.

“I don’t think you can deal with him. As a returner, it’s ridiculous. He’s got to go down as the best punt returner in the history of the game.

Hester has fast feet — perhaps the fastest in NFL history, and Ryan doesn’t want those feet to hurt his team on Sunday afternoon.

Ryan has some other things to worry about regarding feet this morning. According to Deadspin, a YouTube user called “ihaveprettyfeet” posted a video of her sticking her feet outside a car window, while a man whose voice sounded very much like Rex Ryan’s egged her on in a vaguely erotic way. The Deadspin post goes on to “investigate” whether the woman is a “twin sister” of Michelle Ryan, Rex’s wife, and concludes that the woman is likely, in fact, Rex’s wife.

There’s nothing wrong with any of this, of course; it’s just something that spices up the week for Rex, whose comment, according to a Chicago Breaking Sports article on the subject, was:

“To be honest, and I get it, I know you need to ask and all that stuff,” Ryan said. “It’s a personal matter and I’m really not going to discuss it, OK?”

Here’s the video if you want to look for yourself (c’mon, you know you want to):
