The Jets Locker Room Is A Piping Hot Mess
In one of the least surprising stories of the entire NFL season, it turns out that the New York Jets locker room is a complete disaster.
According to multiple outlets, Jets wide receiver Brandon Marshall went on a halftime tirade in the locker room during his team's blowout loss to the Patriots in Week 16; a rant that didn't seem to go over well with some of the Jets other prominent players.
“He should be embarrassed,” Richardson said when speaking about Marshall.
“There’s no reason, he just should be.”
When asked to elaborate on those comments, Richardon whipped out a classic.
“He knows what he did. It’s cool, bro. … It’s irrelevant. Scratch that comment.”
Ah yes, the old "he knows what he did." It's almost as good as "It's not even worth talking about." These Jets players really know how to act out a cliche, I'll give them that.
Longtime Jets safety Calvin Pryor was also a tad miffed over Marshall's halftime antics.
“When we’re getting blown out at halftime, there’s no reason to be fighting amongst each other,” Pryor told ESPN.com. “I think that’s why guys were upset, because we needed to be fighting against the Patriots, instead of the Jets."
For his part, Marshall believed that his mid-game rant actually helped.
"It was good because a lot of people got involved after that," Marshall said. "It was mostly for the offensive guys, but being in the middle and as boisterous as I was, other people got involved."
Not sure how anything that happened in the locker room was good, but needless to say, the fight on the field that Pryor wanted to see never transpired. The Patriots demolished the Jets 41-3, leaving the last place team in the AFC East to take needless jabs at each other via the media.
Considering the way that these guys have responded on and off the field to getting their asses kicked by their biggest rival, it's no wonder that they've resorted to trading petty insults.
Good luck to the Jets media this weekend!
