MANHATTAN — New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan dodged questions on Wednesday about videos making waves on the Internet featuring the feet of a woman who is a dead ringer for his wife, Michelle.

The videos, which have been re-posted on YouTube after they were initially posted on sports gossip website Deadspin, show a woman displaying her feet in shoes, stockings or barefoot.

"I know you need to ask, but it’s a personal matter," Rex Ryan told reporters in a post-practice interview in Chicago on Wednesday, according to reports.

In one of the videos, the Michelle Ryan lookalike engages in a conversation with an off-camera male voice, which very closely resembles that of Gang Green’s head coach.

"You have really beautiful feet," the cameraman tells the woman who has her feet hanging out her parked car window.

She responds by saying, "Thank you. You know most men do think my feet are pretty because...well, they're soft and they're petite and, of course, they are very beautiful."

The cameraman then asks if he can touch and smell the woman's feet.

"I bet most men like to do a lot of things with those feet," the man says.
