Here is the Mcelroy radio conversation in alabama: http://www.973thezon...ayer/101201381/


I wouldn't call it "trashing". Just talked about some players caring more about stats than wins

The interesting thing he implied is that it was multiple players we all know Holmes is one of them who else would you speculate it was?

I've never seen a fan base so worried about what other people think of their team. Especially considering we've sucked for how long? Who gives a **** what some talking head who gets paid to stir up controversy says about your team. They know no more than you or I.

This place cracks me up with their Fancesca venom, waiting on pins and needles for Rex to speak at a presser, waiting to hear what Namath says...I could give a sh*t. When people tell me the Jets suck - I say tell me something I dont know. lol

I love Francesa, he's hysterical. But he was just speaking on what Mccelroy said. That's what was passed along to me- if it was incorrect my bad.

But what did Mccelroy actually say?

It was not Fatcessa who said it was Mcelroy (sp sorry). He is in the locker room every day you have to take what he says at face value. just listen to the interview.

They're not far off, but he didn't carpet-bomb the whole team, he called out "selfish individuals" and "certain guys" who cared about their own stats more than they cared about winning. That said, he did use the word "corrupt" to refer to the locker room atmosphere. Could be nothing more than imprecision of language, but if it was a considered choice it sure sounds a hell of a lot like a shot at Rex.

I'm curious to hear his opinion as well.

Rookie QB Greg McElroy says there was a 'corrupt mindset' in Jets locker room with 'extremely selfish individuals' this season

BY MANISH MEHTA



Two days after Rex Ryan admitted that he didn’t have his finger on the pulse of the Jets this season, rookie quarterback Greg McElroy revealed a toxic attitude that permeated the lockerroom.

“It’s definitely not a fun place to be,” McElroy told an Alabama radio station on Wednesday. “I can assure you.”

McElroy, who was placed on Injured Reserve due to a thumb injury, reiterated the vibe that several players talked about on Monday.

“It’s the first time I’ve ever been around extremely selfish individuals,” said McElroy, who was a seventh round pick out of Alabama. “I think that’s maybe the nature of the NFL. But there were people within our lockerroom that didn’t care whether we won or loss… as long as they got their… they really had a good game individually. And that’s the disappointing thing."

"It’s going to take a lot to kind of come together next year," he added. "I think the fact that we struggled at times this year really led to a really corrupt mindset within the lockerroom. But I think we’re going to regroup and I know that we’ll be a better team because of the trials and tribulations this year.”

On Monday, one player told the Daily News that “this place is a zoo.”

Bickering between Santonio Holmes and several teammates in Sunday’s season-ending loss to the Dolphins took center stage as the Jets missed the playoffs for the first time since Rex Ryan took over in 2009.

The combination of Mason, Plax and Holmes was street theather. WHO would want to play with those ghetto fools. Were lucky to have been able to unload Mason.

I’d say for a 3 rd string QB he was trashing, at least telling the truth

“First time in my life I’ve been around such selfish people”

“No reason we shouldn’t have made a Super Bowl run.” “Some people refused to buy in, we’ll see if their still on the team next year?”

Loves Schotty: “Thought he did a great job. He was put in a bad situation. Team (read Rex here) has to decide what type offense we will be.”

Pretty balsy statements for a 7th round pick

Love this kid and really think the Jets have found an excellent back up. I hate Bama and still feel that way

I will say this makes Sanchez look bad.. a rookie who was on friggin IR just put his name to it while Mark is too afraid to upset anyone.

Whether or not it was the right thing to do it takes some balls and I applaud him. I thought he was showing some heart in the pre season before getting hurt. He took a beating in a couple games and got up and continued to make plays.

Did you listen to the interview? He talked up Rex (and even Schotty) big time. He said he loves playing for Rex, and said when Rex talks up his players it's intended to help boost their confidence.

Listen to the interview. What he actually said is quite different than what people on here are "quoting" from the interview.

Jif I know you have seen this kid play a lot. He is going to be a good player. I'm glad he didn't take the PC route, spoke the truth, and put hisname to it.

That's what a leader does, Sanchez should listen to this interview

I only heard the excerpt Francesa played. Not surprising he'd cull the most damning portions.

I will say, it's alot easier to speak your mind to a hometown radio station in alabama where they love you, to speaking to the NY media who you can't trust.

Best as I can figure, he couldn't have been referring to anyone other than Holmes and Plax. He says more than 1, I'm at a loss as to who that would be.

Sanchez does not strike me as a guy that cares about stats more than wins. Greene? He didn't get that many carries and yet you never heard a story about him whining, you never saw him act upset. L.T. is definitely not "that guy." Obviously, O-linemen are pretty much exempt from that category. Kerley strikes me as a team player.

Keller? Eh, I dunno. I kinda doubt it was Keller, too. I think he's actually developing into a leader of sorts, and he was the one that basically held Santonio back which was to me a sign of "buying in."

Frankly, I can't think of anyone else who this would apply to other than Holmes and POSSIBLY Plax (though Plax has been on good behavior in public for the most part.)

Did he mean someone on defense? I don't think the d-line gives a damn about stats at all. I dunno...

Who'd think that a bunch of mercenaries on short-term contracts would be worried about stats? That's also weird.
