(Newser) – Jets coach Rex Ryan sure likes to make a statement, sometimes even figurative ones: This morning, he gathered his team on sidelines of its practice field and buried a game ball used in Monday's 45-3 loss to New England, reports the New York Post. He told the players he wants them to forget about the game.

“He told us to go outside and we were all saying, ‘What are we doing? Going on a field trip or something?'" said cornerback Darrelle Revis. "The hole was right there, already dug, there with the dirt on the side and he threw the ball in the hole. It was a funeral for a game ball." And somewhere in New England, Bill Belichick had a big smile on his face.
