This was a surreal development even by Jets standards. Ryan opened his late-morning news conference by saying, "You're not going to believe this, but ... ."
Ryan said he was "stunned" when McElroy, with a towel wrapped around his head, walked into his office at 9:30 a.m. accompanied by trainer John Mellody.

Ryan defended the decision to start Sanchez.
"When you look at the circumstances we're in, I think without question this is the right decision," he said.
"Any competitor would be excited about getting another opportunity against Mark," Ryan said of Sanchez, whose future with the team is in doubt.
