As the New York Jets head into rebuilding mode for the next season, they were trying to put the recent drama that surrounded them to rest. However, a member of the organization shared some insight into their locker room chemistry.
Only a few short days have gone by after a dismal showing in the Jets locker room on Monday after a team meeting following a loss to the Miami Dolphins. Players were not very media friendly and LB Bart Scott actually gave a photographer an obscene gesture, telling him to,”Get that (expletive) thing out of my face!”
It was announced today that Scott was fined $10,000 for his actions that probably came from pure frustration as to how the season ended for the Jets and what has been reported as certain players being strictly out for themselves and not the team. One name that keeps getting mentioned is WR Santonio Holmes.
While the Jets PR people ushered Holmes out the door quickly before he could be asked questions on Monday, a few players have come forth on the issue of team chemistry and what it was like in the locker room. The first was RB LaDainian Tomlinson who pretty much said Holmes quit during the end of the game on Sunday.
Now it seems that third string quarterback Greg McElroy also wants to give his take on the matter. McElroy was drafted by the Jets in the 2011 NFL Draft out of Alabama during the seventh round.
Rookie third string quarterbacks don’t usually carry much weight in interviews, but in light of the recent drama surrounding the Jets, people were all ears when he spoke with 97.3 The Zone in Birmingham, AL.
