Report: Rex teared up after loss in Seattle

The New York Jets' offense was listless in Seattle, and that didn't sit well with head coach Rex Ryan.

There's no crying in football, unless of course you're Rex Ryan and your team is 3-6, self destructing before your very eyes.

According to ESPN New York's Rich Cimini, several Jets players indicated their head coach actually cried during his postgame address in the locker room following the team's 28-7 loss to Seattle. A fiery and emotional Ryan reportedly implored his team to "believe" in one another with their playoff hopes seemingly fading away.

Gang Green is currently mired in a three-game losing streak and is just 3-9 over its last 12 regular season contests. New York squandered yet another opportunity to halt its skid and get back on the winning track against the Seahawks this past Sunday.

Fresh off a bye week, Mark Sanchez and the offensive unit produced just 185 total yards, with the team's only points coming off defensive end Muhammad Wilkerson's 21-yard fumble return for a touchdown. Sanchez tossed a costly red-zone interception to Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman and lost a key fourth-quarter fumble that ultimately sealed the Jets' fate.

No wonder Ryan was weeping after what he deemed a "brutal loss" at Century Link Field in Seattle. Famed for his braggadocios behavior, Ryan showed a more vulnerable side this past Sunday, apparently trying to light a fire under a team that is definitely not living up to its preseason hype.

The Jets return to the gridiron next week to face the St. Louis Rams before preparing for a Thanksgiving Night matchup in Week 12 with their AFC East rival, the New England Patriots.
