Postgame Reactions: Jets Acted Like Kids Who Drank Too Much Soder At Dave And Busters…Sanchez, Holmes Went At It Last Week
The Jets began 2012 like a bunch of crackheads who couldn’t get their hands on any wallets Saturday night. They were yelling at reporters, talking smack about each other, crying to the media, crying to themselves…just an emotional wreck that was pretty hilarious, and SHOCKER it started with Bart Scott…
As players cleaned out their lockers at the training center in Florham Park, linebacker Bart Scott flipped the middle finger at a Post photographer and then said about his future with the team, “all I know is I got a guaranteed contract for $4 million” as he walked out of the locker room.”
As Scott flipped off the photographer he said, “Take a picture of this. Get out of my [bleeping] face.
HAHA WOW. I definitely want to get my right click on with that picture, and frame it in my room. But Scott should take that $4 million and shove it up his ass, because he ain’t going to be back next season.
Then Holmes, the man of the last 24 hours, had to be escorted out of the locker room by PR staffers. Why? Well because he was probably going to flip out on somebody/say something the organization would regret if he did not have PR guys right by his side, holding his hand. A 27 year old KID. Reminds me of the time my cousin got wasted at Calico Jacks in NYC, and had to be escorted by 3 bouncers and a police officer to the train station because he was a threat to lift up more skirts.
Now according to sources from the Post, the on field issues with Holmes and teammates on Sunday started last Wednesday during a players only meeting organized Sanchez…
“The problem escalated last Wednesday when Holmes and quarterback Mark Sanchez had words during a players’ only meeting organized by Sanchez. Sanchez held the same meeting a day later and Holmes was a no-show. This led to the blow up Sunday on the field when Holmes and Wayne Hunter argued in the huddle, leading to Holmes getting benched.”
Sanchez, in an attempt to rally the Jets’ slumping offense, addressed the unit in a meeting Wednesday and said he was planning to hold special after-hours sessions to fine-tune the game plan for the season finale against the Miami Dolphins.
Holmes showed up for the meeting, but stood in the back of the room and was “pouting the whole time,” one source said. According to another source, Holmes said, “Why do I have to do this?” Sanchez held the same meeting the following day, but Holmes was a no-show, sources said.
“I had a feeling it was going to explode,” one source said.
As LT addressed the media he let them know that Holmes is a shitty leader and you could tell Tone was clearly not into the game by his body language, which lead to his benching on Sunday…
“It’s tough for guys to follow a captain that kind of behaves in that manner,” Tomlinson told reporters after the game. “You’re a captain, guys looking at you. You’ve got to lead by example. You’ve got to play your tail off until the last play. And when that doesn’t happen, you will have guys look at you in the way that captains shouldn’t be looked at. You should always put yourself out there as a leader.”
“Let me just say there were some guys in the huddle that were unhappy with Tone’s demeanor. When you have a group of guys that’s fighting their butts off, and one guy, for whatever reason, their demeanor’s not with them, you’re going to get some guys to say something to him and tell them how they feel. That’s what you got today.”
Then LT was aked about why he thinks Holmes was upset…
“You know what, that’s something you’re going to have to talk to Tone about. He didn’t say anything. I think, once again, it’s demeanor. Body language tells players everything. I think that’s what it was.”
[...] and could it have been the bad passing game?
“I have no idea, honestly. I have no idea. But even if it was, we were still in the game. We were still in the game.”
After the game Rex was crying like a fatty, who had no more chicken cutlets left. Begging the team to keep their unity and stay together. Revis the only player worth jumping for on the Jets, refused to speak to the media and pretty much told the media to suck it cause the season is over [via Jenny Vrentas].
Now we @FLOPPINGOUT do know two things about this situation: 1) Holmes despises Brian Schottenheimer more than a fatty does egg whites and 2) Sanchez and Holmes lead as well as a drug counselor to a group of crackheads on the road to recovery.
The 2011-2012 Jets had 0 leadership. Revis is quiet and does his own thing, Harris is like a depressed man at church, Bart Scott is like a psycho in a mental institute/blows now, Sanchez couldn’t lead a horse to grass on a grass field, Holmes is a moron, Greene only shows emotion when he trips himself and punches the turf, Plax is still thinking about getting butt banged in jail, Keller does not realize he is playing football, the O line lost its swag cause they have Wayne “I shoulda been a squirrel” Hunter. THIS TEAM gets no LEADERSHIP from anywhere on the field. When things go bad or better yet when things aren’t ideal…this team collapses because they have no guy that will invoke confidence in others. Everyone does their own thing…
Now, Rex, the #fatty, tries to be that leader, but it is hard when you guarantee something that your players don’t even buy. At the end of the day GM Tannenbaum did an awful job at getting rid of leaders Tony Richardson and Damien Woody on the offensive end, and Kris Jenkins on the defensive end. These guys were experienced vets that have been there and done that. In the offseason the Jets better worry more about building AN ACTUAL TEAM OF BALLERS…and if they do get pissed who cares? At least you know they care…
