Cowardly Jets rear their cowardly heads

As if the Jets could be even more dislikeable, we have this: Multiple players ripping starting quarterback Mark Sanchez in the most gutless way possible. No, not on Twitter. See, using Twitter would have required attaching their name to it.

The Jets? They ripped Sanchez anonymously through the New York Daily News.

And this is not me defending Sanchez. It's not. He could well be "lazy," as one gutless wonder told the newspaper. He could be a "baby," as another gutless Jet said. It's entirely possible that "he goes in a hole when someone tells him the truth," as someone sniveled.

But there's a right way to do things, and a wrong way, and damn if the Jets don't take the wrong way every ... single ... time.

No need to list the transgressions here -- CBSSports.com's server holds just 14.74 kajillion megabytes -- but idiots are aplenty. Rex Ryan, Santonio Holmes, Bart Scott and all these gutless wimps ripping Sanchez anonymously ...

The only person in the organization with any gumption is the backup quarterback, Greg McElroy, who attached his name to some fierce criticism last week. Everyone else? Gutless. No wonder the team choked all season.

This is a sign of a team on a steep decline. When everybody is cheapshoting everybody anonymously there's some serious problems in the locker room and you can start with the coach. Ryan is all about the hoopla and not about the punishment. Let players be themselves. Problem is that most of the players in any sport are egotistical babies and that will end up killing your team. Manning won't help this team, only a slap in the head to make these guys smarten up will, or this team is going to be a bottom feeder quick.

Well, there was the assistant coach who stood right by the sideline so he could knee the Miami gunner.  That's not cheating?

Please shut up cscoot, you're so right, it's way better to rip him in front of the whole world, that's way more productive than telling it to his face like a real man.

Really? And what good would that do? Tell him the truth to his face. then what? You think that will change his behavior? All this gutless coward crap, you folks don't have a proper read on this. His teammates did the only thing they could do to affect change. Maybe they want to win really bad and know he isn't the one to help. If you think a locker room where everyone speaks their mind openly is a good thing, think again!!! Yes, tell him to his face, that'll be productive, idiots!

Correction, the only cheaters that got caught were the Pats.  All teams 'cheat'

No reason not to come out and tell the truth.  Sanchez sux.  Everyone knows it.  He can't throw beyond 20 yards, he looks scared in the pocket and on the bench he puts on his ballcap and acts like he doesn't give a damn.  Compare him to other QB's (even new ones like Tebow and Dalton) and you'll see guys who are hungry, passionate and driven ~ pouring over charts with their OC's on the sidelines, reving up the fans and their teammates.

Sanchez just wants to sit around with his millions and nail Kate Upton.  Only problem is, if you want that kind of life, you have to earn it.  Every day.

I am disgusted by this, and I agree that it is a top down problem. The issue I have is that when Rex speaks out love him or hate him it is about getting people into the game of football, it is done for entertainment. But when his team speaks it is something else entirely. Whether it's McElroy or the annonymous twits you do not aire your internal team issues in the press. I think they are all idiots. Mcelroy is this how you take leadership in that locker room by talking out to the media about the selfish teammates you have, I am sure they will happily follow you into battle and these selfish stat mongers will block for you as well. If you have issues be a man stand up in a team meeting and aire your issues. Leave it out of the press. Period.

If a true teammate has a problem with someone...you tell them to their face and move on, the gutless coward who hides behind a biline hungry sports writer is no teammate and certainly not a "professional" athlete.  If you hear 1 person say something derogatory you can blow it off as sour grapes, but when you hear a bunch of people saying the same thing, then there may be some truth to it. Sanchez may be lazy and a baby, but then you tell him to his face, this crap reeks of high school note passing and writing things on the bathroom wall.  Those who spoke really need to grow up and grow a set and let their teammates know what they think.  Its a donward spiral from here for a team who resorts to airing their dirty laundry via the press. I am a green-bleeding Jet fan, and even I am ashamed of all this.  Rex really has control over his team right now.....
