Rex Ryan reprimanded his team on Wednesday for anonymous comments trashing Tebow in a newspaper article. Ryan said it is okay to have those opinions and speak on them, but called doing it anonymously is “cowardly”. No one has stepped up yet, but it isn’t looking so good for a Jets locker room already filled with controversy.
The Jets’ running back Shonn Greene also spoke up on Wednesday. He has grown tired of the on-field struggles his team is facing and stated, “Something’s got to change. You feel bad for Mark, but at the same time you want to win games. We’re not here to protect people’s feelings. If you want to win games, you’ve got to try something. If somebody’s not getting the job done, you see if somebody else can do it.”
