This morning, 3rd string quarterback Greg McElroy of the Jets spoke out about what really went on in the Jets locker room this season on a Birmingham, Alabama radio show. Watch the clip and listen for yourself, just skip to the 2:25 mark to about the 3:15 mark:
This is exactly what I would expect the Jets locker room to be like. You have Plaxico Burress at his locker calling his boys to see which bar he needs to bring his glock to, Santonio sitting at his locker reading his stats sheet, Rex in his office trying to decide what he wants to say about Bill Belichick and which guarentee he wants to make this week, and Mark Sanchez reading ‘Football for Dummies’ at his locker. Oh and not to mention LaDanian Tomlinson icing one of his fake injuries that he acquired because it was a big game and he couldn’t handle it. This has got to be one of the craziest groups of offensive guys I have ever seen on a football team. I was never really a fan of the Jets, and I honestly do feel bad for anyone who calls themselves a Jets fan, just because one person can only take so much heartbreak in their lives, but come on. You can’t honestly put this group of players together and think you are going to win a Super Bowl. How do you even fit all of those inflated heads in one locker room?
I give McElroy props for coming out and saying this. Many other NFL players are not so happy about the remarks but frankly its not their place to say anything about this kid. You have Ryan Clark of the Steelers tweeting “
@RealRClark25 Who cares about Greg McElroy ! He wasn’t even good at Alabama. Why do we care what he says? Isn’t he 3rd string? Who’s his dad again“. Are you serious buddy? You are doing the same thing as him this week and sitting at home because you can’t even play in the first round of the playoffs. Someone needed to say something, and you know the Jets “leader” Mark Sanchez wouldn’t say anything because he can never pull the trigger and do anything, so maybe Plaxico should handle that…pun intended. In all seriousness, the Jets should probably start this guy next year at quarterback. You gave Sanchez his chance, and he has blown it, and in my eyes was lucky to even get to two AFC Championships. McElroy obviously isn’t scared to step on toes and put guys in their place so give him a shot.
