“I know everybody else on the team doesn’t like it”

thomas_jonesNew York Jets’ running back, Thomas Jones, participated in a radio interview on Tuesday and was asked about the conclusion of his team’s season. Jones held nothing back and told it like it was, which I completely agree with. Some may listen to Jones’ words and say that he was throwing Brett Favre under the bus – I would say that he’s speaking the truth.

Jones told Hot 97 FM, “If somebody is not playing well, they need to come out of the game”, implying the play of his quarterback. He also stated, “If I were to sit here and say, ‘Oh, man, it’s OK,’ that’s not reality. … I don’t like it, I know everybody else on the team doesn’t like it”.

So I’m glad that someone agrees with me, but I also believe that many of the Jets’ players feel this way. ESPN’s coverage of the interview also went on to say that many of the Jets’ players felt that Brett Favre was a “distant” teammate who kept to himself in his own place and never participated in any team dinners or off-the-field activities. I understand that Brett Favre is viewed and treated as an all-mighty figure, but give me a break. Favre has the same attitude that Roger Clemens did when he came back to baseball – the thought that they’re too good for the others. Brett Favre ruined the New York Jets’ 2008 season and he influenced the firing of a good football coach. The Jets’ front office claims they want Brett Favre back, I wouldn’t think that they share the same opinions with the actual team.
