NEW YORK -- With the ink not even dry on the New York Jets' dreadful season, Rex Ryan fled to the Bahamas only to be photographed lounging poolside at a resort hotel, book in hand, with an interesting tattoo gracing his right biceps.

It showed his wife, Michelle, wearing an unmistakably green Jets jersey emblazoned with the unmistakable No. 6 of embattled quarterback Mark Sanchez.

And nothing else.

The Daily News ran a front-page photo Friday and by lunchtime it was an Internet sensation. That's pretty much the way the NFL team's soap-opera season played out.

Ryan was criticized for sticking with Sanchez despite losing efforts when Tim Tebow was available.

The Jets finished the season 6-10.

When approached by a Daily News reporter, Ryan cursed and bolted with his wife. There were no other jersey numbers tattooed on Ryan's arm, based on the photo.

But it did sport a large shamrock with the names of his children
