Popular Post KRL Posted April 7, 2015 Popular Post Share Posted April 7, 2015 How bad was lateness that a rookie who struggled noticed it and commented on it??? http://www.nj.com/jets/index.ssf/2015/04/jace_amaro_rex_ryan_didnt_hold_jets_accountable.html Jets players are eager to say how no-nonsense new head coach Todd Bowles seems to be. "He's a very stern guy, a very stern coach," quarterback Geno Smith said, per the team's website. "Strong-minded, and to the team he speaks his mind," defensive end Sheldon Richardson told the team's website. "We got to see him up in front of the team [Monday] morning," center Nick Mangold told reporters Monday. "He's got a great passion." But tight end Jace Amaro, now entering his second season, was the first to draw a distinction between Bowles and Rex Ryan, who was fired after 2014 and is now the head man with the Bills. In an interview with Sirius XM NFL Radio, Amaro didn't mention Ryan by name. But he didn't have to. "He's not really playing around with everyone being late," Amaro said of Bowles. "We had an issue with that last year. Guys just weren't accountable last year as much as they could be. I think that's the biggest thing. [bowles is] making sure everyone's gonna be 100 percent in or he's not going to be on the team." Smith had missed a meeting because of some time-zone confusion on the night before the Jets got drilled by the Chargers last October. But by saying tardiness was "an issue," Amaro implied the problem wasn't just about that isolated incident involving Smith. Amaro also implied that compared to Ryan, Bowles won't be messing around. 6 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
