Jets get nasty with reporters in locker room

Holmes

By Josh Katzowitz

For a team that likes to talk so much trash, the Jets certainly didn’t want to speak to reporters a day after their playoff hopes were dashed by a loss to the Dolphins. And they made themselves extremely clear about that.

Santonio Holmes, who actually talked Sunday after he was benched for the final few minutes of the game, was escorted out by the Jets PR department and refused to comment, according to the Newark Star Ledger.

Linebacker Bart Scott also refused to talk, and when a photographer got in his way, Scott yelled, “Get out of my f------ face” and flipped the bird. Cornerback Darrelle Revis also uncharacteristically declined comment.

It just goes to show how acrimonious that locker room has become and what a disaster of a season it was for the Jets. Coach Rex Ryan will meet with the media today at 3 p.m. ET, and the Jets said today that general manager Mike Tannenbaum will join him. Which might mean there will be some team and/or coaching personnel decisions to discuss. 

But say this for Ryan, who apparently cried in front of his team while giving his last speech of the season and pleading for team unity. As blustery as he is, he answers all questions after an opponent makes him look foolish. It’s called being accountable. Sounds like his team is exactly the opposite.

Jets get nasty with reporters in locker room

Brian, you say you're through fighting and such, but you still can't resist a parting shot(validate my shortcomings ??).

I'm not here to fight and I will discuss sports with you. But like Montweet said, when someone offers an opinion of the Jets or whomever or whatever, and you disagree with it, don't insult or call people names. That is what draws everyone's fire.

So please keep up with the present.The PRESENT is the Pats have lost BACK TO BACK home playoff games
Not exactly.  The present would be the Patriots are in the playoffs as a #1 seed and the Jets are a medicore 8-8 team that is not in the playoffs.  That would be the present.
