It’s getting very interesting in Jets land. VERY INTERESTING. So how bad was that locker room? Some players have been talking slightly about the locker room and gave some hints that maybe it may have been split or that some players had given up.
Only teammates that would have a problem with his comments, would be the ones he’s talking about and really they could care less obviously

Greg Takes Shots at the Jets Locker Room
“It’s definitely not a fun place to be, I can assure you,” McElroy said. “It’s the first time I’ve ever been around extremely selfish individuals, and I think that’s maybe the nature of the NFL. But there were people within our locker room that didn’t care whether we won or lost, as long as they got their … they really had good games individually. That’s the disappointing thing, and it’s going to take a lot to kind of come together.”
“I think the fact that we struggled at times this year really led to a really just corrupt mindset within the locker room. But I think we’re going to regroup, and I know we’re going to be a better team because of the trials and tribulations this year.”
Here is my take. Players should not go on the radio and talk about what happened in the locker room. That is an in-house issue and let’s hope Rex can resolve it. Now I like what Greg said. He’s a high quality guy with nothing to lose. He’s a 7th round backup pick. If the Jets wanted to get rid of yet another quality player with a character, I’m sure Greg will be more than glad to move on, but did he tell the truth here?
What does he have to gain by lying? NOTHING.
So I believe what Greg is saying, my only issue is that the way he talked about it publicly. Keep it in-house.
I’m not the only one not happy he spoke out but I don’t believe there is any reason to get personal and attack. Former Jets backup QB Erik Ainge tweeted his opinion:
ErikAinge3@nyjets Someone tell McElroy to keep his mouth shut about the NYJ “Locker Room” speaking in the media about your teammates, entitled brat!

Entitled Brat? Based on what Erik?
Former offensive lineman and current ESPN analyst Damien Woody also put out a tweet.
Everyone on the team needs to STFU! 2011 will never go away if ppl keep snitching! #nyj1/4/12 4:11 PM
I wonder if this is going to continue, or will the Jets organization stop the 2011 bleeding.
