- The disappearing head coach
Blink, and you’ll miss him.
Rex Ryan, speaking to reporters Thursday during a media blitz in New York, announced that he has dropped 106 pounds since having lap-band surgery in 2010.
Ryan, a paid spokesman for lap-band surgery, is down to 242 pounds. He’s actually lighter than QB Tim Tebow, whose prescribed weight for the season is 250.

- Holmes whines about media coverage
Now I know how Wayne Hunter felt in the huddle that fateful day in Miami: I’ve got Santonio Holmes coming after me. Well, not me alone, but rather the entire New York media.
