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.

Now, this is more like it

This time, I agree with everything Doyle has written.  Most professional athletes who are actually professional have a code a lot like Vegas: what happens in the locker room stays in the locker room.  In the carnival and circus profession, the concept is called "kayfabe."  You may recognize this word because it has been popularized by professional wrestlers and their fans.  
 
Anyway, breaking kayfabe is "bad juju" all the way around.  I am not surprised that a team of underacheivers like the Jets is the one who is doing it the worst, though.  The Jets were 11-5 last season; now, they're 8-8.   They have to blame somebody, right?  It's a lot easier to blame the quarterback than it is to look in the mirror.  
 
It's too bad this isn't the "old days."  The players who broke kayfabe would be blackballed and never play another down in the NFL.  And really, that's what they deserve.  Let the spoiled, arrogant pieces of bleep pump gas for a living, which is pretty much all they are qualified for outside of football.
