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

Here is the latest PRESENT news:

NEW YORK -- rookie quarterback says there was a "corrupt mindset" in the locker room during a disappointing season, and the team included some "extremely selfish individuals."

The Jets' seventh-round pick out of Alabama tells 97.3 The Zone in Birmingham on Wednesday that The Jets locker room was "definitely not a fun place to be, I can assure you." McElroy missed the season with a thumb injury, but was around the team throughout as it finished 8-8 and failed to make the playoffs.

McElroy tells the radio station that some players cared only about individual achievements rather than wins or losses.

He didn't single out any players, but the comments come on the heels of being benched in the regular-season finale for arguing in the huddle.
