Jets get nasty with reporters in locker room

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

This disaster of a season couldn't have happened to a nicer bunch... LOL!  What a bunch of loud mouthed A-holes who don't know the first thing about playing as a team.  I guess this is what you end up with when you go out and hire a loud mouth head coach and a group of "all star" caliber (albeit talented) individuals. You will never win a championship with that type of team NY Jets, so you might as well just blow up your team as soon as you can.

Jets get nasty with reporters in locker room

Well, this raises a lot of questions for the Jets. Questions like...
1. Since Holmes is a crybaby punk that somehow was made a captain, was Bart "CAN'T WAIT" Scott made a captain immediately after bullying a reporter?
2. Why aren't the the punk Jets as tough on the field as they are in the locker room?
3. What will Ryan now tattoo on his other leg?
4. Is a crying Rex Ryan funnier than the bold Rex Ryan that will never shut the **** up?
5. When will little brother Ryan kiss the ring?
6. To distract from his Tebow-ish ability to throw the ball, does Sanchez up the ante and parade around in a neon mini skirt and clear heels in his next "Ace and Gary" photo spread?
7. Is Tannenbaum's resume on now or does he have to wait a few days?
8. How soon until Ryan picks the Jets to win the 2013 Super Bowl?
