FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (CBS) — As the NFC North champion Bears prepare to take on the New York Jets at Soldier field Sunday, Jets coach Rex Ryan is trying overcome a strange scandal involving foot fetish videos.
On Wednesday, Ryan called the issue a “personal matter,” and declined to talk about the foot-fetish report posted by the sports website Deadspin that shows four videos of a woman who bears an uncanny resemblance to Ryan’s wife, Michelle.
The videos show a woman displaying her toes to an off-screen cameraman who sounds a lot like the coach. The two are having an intimate chat about her feet. They were posted by someone using the handle “ihaveprettyfeet.”
This is not the first time the Jets have turned up on Deadspin this season.
In October, the site reported that Minnesota Vikings quarterback Brett Favre sent racy text messages and photos to a former game hostess while he was the Jets’ quarterback in 2008.
The NFL is still investigating the allegations.
