Rex Ryan was not pleased about Sanchez’s hot dog eating on the sideline and he let it be known following practice. When asked about the incident by a reporter, the following dialogue took place.
Ryan: “At first I was so frustrated. I asked him where he got the dog and he would not respond to me.”
Reporter:” You are winning the game at this point, what was going through your mind when he would not respond.”
Ryan: “A mix of emotions, hunger.”
Reporter: “Hunger? Anyway is everything okay now?”
Ryan: “Yes, You know I had a few hot dogs right after the game myself. I just wanted a bite so bad and damn before I got over to him he had finished the damn thing. I calmed down because I knew I would get a couple after the game. It was only a moment when I got real angry. At that point I had not had a hot dog since half time. However, we all know this cannot happen again.”
Reporter: “What will you do to make sure this does not become a distraction again?”
Ryan: “I pulled Mark aside and I said, you really have to realize your surroundings before you do things you do not want others to see. However, I told him I see everything. Next time, just be smart about it and get me one too.”
