Rex Ryan holds confusing conference call following Jets 'nightmare' loss

Jets coach Rex Ryan followed up a "nightmare" of a 49-19 loss to the Patriots Thursday night with a somewhat confusing press conference call Friday morning.

Ryan revealed he didn't know quarterback Tim Tebow had two fractured ribs until Wednesday of this week, 10 days after Tebow claims he initially suffered the injury in a loss to the Seahawks. Tebow was dressed for the Patriots game but did not play a snap.

Ryan's statement that the Jets offense is improving and his handling of others questions left many members of the media shaking their heads as to just what his answers meant:
