Report: Bart Scott tries to lead media mutiny after Jets win

This isn't the first time Scott has had problems with the media. This picture was not taken Sunday. (US Presswire)

You would think a team that just ended a stretch in which it had lost five of its last six games and kept alive its slim postseason hopes would be a happy, loose bunch in the locker room afterward.

But this is the Jets. It seems like every time they win, disaster is soon to follow.

That was the scene described by the New York Post’s Bart Hubbuch after New York dispatched the Rams on Sunday with an easier-than-expected 27-13 win.

Most likely upset by a story that ran in the New York Daily News this week in which unidentified sources ripped backup quarterback Tim Tebow, Jets linebacker Bart Scott reportedly tried to lead a media mutiny in the minutes after New York’s win.

According to Hubbuch, Scott told his defensive teammates to tell the media nothing but, “Both teams played hard.” He was threatening anybody who didn’t comply.

Yeremiah Bell and Bryan Thomas refused to participate, which led Scott to yell that Thomas was a “MFing sellout.” Bell reportedly responded, “Stop it. Just stop it.”

Luckily for everybody involved, peace seemed to prevail after Bell and Thomas broke the mutiny.
