In the second quarter of the Jets' 30-21 loss to the New England Patriots on Sunday, Ferguson found his cleat stuck in Patriots player Patrick Chung's helmet.
From there on, he proceeded to play a game of tug-of-war with the officials, attempting to pry his cleat loose like a kid who had just gotten his favorite toy taken away from him.
Of course, Ferguson would have rather the stomping incident been a symbol of what was to come for the Jets against their bitter rivals, but that wasn't the case.
Patriots running back BenJarvus Green-Ellis ran all over the Jets, racking up 136 rushing yards and two touchdowns, and receiver Wes Welker pranced for 124 receiving yards.
Ferguson was able to take the odd incident in stride, however, not letting it ruin his day too much. The offensive line did a decent job in all against the Patriots, allowing quarterback Mark Sanchez to complete 61 percent of his passes for 166 yards and two touchdowns and running back Shonne Greene to scamper for 83 yards and a touchdown.
But you can only imagine the fun Rex Ryan and Co. would have had with Ferguson after the game if they weren't in such a foul mood from losing. Probably would have said something about him having a black belt in karate.
Yet another odd moment in Rex Ryan's legacy. Fortunately for him, this one made YouTube for a different reason.
