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 have followed me into Patriots threads in the past. You follow RedWings almost everywhere he goes. You have hounded Wings, Sklaos, Millpounder, MikeD and others on every Lions and Tigers thread in the last few months. You have gone to Steelers, Broncos, Patriots, Lions and several other football and baseball threads just to harass people. You favorited tomebrady and a few others that YOU yourself have accused of trolling YOU. Why ??? Because YOU are the one rolling people and making more and more new enemies every day.

Brian, The only reason the Jets were the home team against the Giants is for the same reason as any other team. They ROTATE games as home and road ! In 4 years, when they play again, the Giants will be the home team !! It's got nothing to do with superiority. The NFL tries to do it that way with all games involving teams from the opposite conference. And where possible with teams in the same conference.

And while you're pointing out that Mai got a warning, I noticed that you have been warned twice in the last 3 days. And one of them was for "trolling". Something you have accused only others of doing.
