When it comes to facing the Patriots Rex Ryan isn’t fooling around.

As for his players well that depends on who you talk to.

Ryan in a team meeting Wednesday told the Jets they need to be well-rested when Tom Brady and Co. hit MetLife Stadium on Sunday and according to Josh Cribbs added “Don’t do nothing for your wife.”

To defensive lineman Sheldon Richardson that not only meant avoiding things like taking out the garbage it also included any activities in the bedroom.

“Most definitely” Richardson told the Daily News with an ear-to-ear grin when asked if Rex’s message included hanky panky.

Richardson’s comments sparked Jet mayhem reminiscent of the good old days forcing Ryan to come into the press room and tell the gathered media that sex is not part of his no-no list for the weekend.
