“Tormented Rex Bares ‘Sole’ Over Kinky Feet Vids” (New York Post)
“Men Just Follow In Rex Ryan’s Footsteps” (Los Angeles Times)
“Trouble A-Foot” (Boston Herald)
“Open Mouth, Insert Foot” (Boston Globe)
“Foot-Bowl: Rex Ryan vs. Bill Belichick” (Larry Brown Sports)
“Jets, Pats Dance Around Wes Welker’s Foot Comments” (Sporting News)
