Rex Ryan And Beat Reporter Switch Places At Press Conference (VIDEO)


The grind of daily football press conferences is an experience NFL coaches and beat writers alike know all too well. There simply aren't as many sensational scoops or headline-grabbing quotes to report as there are deadlines. Perhaps knowing that it was a dull news day, New York Jets' coach Rex Ryan decided to spice up his Saturday presser by switching places with ESPN New York's Rich Cimini.

Ryan seems genuinely interested in asking some questions from the other side of the podium. The two traded barbs about everything from injury reports to the Tim Tebow controversy, with Rex admitting he "absolutely did" get tired of dealing with questions about the former backup quarterback.
