Once Mark Sanchez was let go by the Jets, as soon as the peals of laughter subsided, the big question of everyone’s mind was what would happen to the Sanchez tattoo on Rex Ryan’s shoulder. Well, some enterprising reporter managed to buttonhole the Jets coach and ask him about it and the answer is… he doesn’t know yet.
“Guys, the tattoo is still there,” Ryan said. “I’m not going to say anything about the Sanchez tattoo. It was my tattoo and it’s still my tattoo.
“I may alter it. Who knows? I’m going to put (No.) 75 on it to honor Winston Hill (His dad, Buddy was Jets defensive coach when Hill played). That’s the idea. That’s what I’m going to do.”
So there you have it. Keeping the tattoo as a cautionary tale wouldn’t be the worst idea, but I can’t blame him for wanting to purge the memory of the buttfumble for good.

— The latest DeSean Jackson rumor was that the Eagles decided to move on without him after his home was robbed, which is ridiculous but still somehow in the realm of possibility of dickishness by an NFL team.
— NFL is banning teams from selling playoff tickets before they actually clinch the playoffs so as to avoid situations like what happened to Lions fans last year. Though if you’re a Lions fan still silly enough to have hope, you deserve what’s coming to you.

— NFL Owners voted approved the measure to allow consultation between referees and the league office on reviews, according to the hundreds of NFL reporters who went to league meetings to report the same news.
— Bill Belichick, however, doesn’t understand why cameras can’t do everything for the refs and grumpily proposes the most grumbly bake sale to buy more cameras.
