Rex Ryan swaps jobs with reporter at Jets press conference

BY foxsports • August 10, 2014

New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan never has a dull press conference. Saturday's post-practice conference shook things up more than usual.

Instead of fielding questions at the podium as he would normally do, Ryan acted as a reporter and allowed ESPN New York beat writer Rich Cimini to field questions.

Ryan initially asked about the Jets' injury report, to which Cimini replied with a typical Rex Ryan answer: He needed to check with the team doctor. Ryan also asked Cimini how tough it is to write an article when the team has a boring day.

"When we have a boring, flat day like you said, we come into the press conference hoping, counting on that you will give us something to write about," Cimini said laughing. "Giving us a good quote, or some news, a headline. But I think today is one of those days where we're really not helping the cause."

The two would go on to discuss what it's like to be a reporter and, of course, Tim Tebow and the infamous "Tebomania."

Check out the two videos below to see the full press conference.
