Jets Players Used to Defend Mark from Mr. Anonymous, Where are they now?

Mr. Anonymous, hope you had a good offseason so far.  It’s been a while.  But seriously, take this with a grain of salt when it comes from an anonymous source.  Here’s what an unnamed player had to tell Mike Freeman of recently:

“Everyone on the team likes Mark personally but there’s a general feeling among some of the players that maybe it’s time to give someone else a chance.”

The player went on to say that he estimates that 80-90 percent of the team feels the same way he does.

BlkSportsOnline Jets lead the league in anonymous quotes saying someone is on their team is terrible 5/23/13 1:52 PM

If you read this blog, you know how I feel about anonymous quotes.  I guess I’m just numb and don’t care about this tactic.  It sucks.

The difference when it was happening to Mark about more than a year ago was that his teammates were coming to his defense.  Are they not coming to his side because it’s true or is it that they are numb and just not commenting is the way to go.  Who knows, but I do know one thing:  Jets fans are sick of this.

 Where are the Jets players defending Mark now?

Nick Mangold came to his defense in 2012.

    The concept of unnamed sources has its roots in politics. Where gutless cowards used it to manipulate public opinion. It seems to work the same way in sports journalism, and has become a sickening habit of the scumbag dickheads who cover the jets.

      Be that as it may, the players should know better not to be baited by the media to say a quote like that… if you do, put your name on it.

    Why do people actually expect that someone would put their name to a quote like that? It’s almost suicide to do that and no one is gonna put themselves in that predicament. IMO comments like that don’t help a situation, but they’re probably true. Just based on the poor performance last 2 years, i’m sure their are vets on the defense who are worn out from being on the field all day with no breaks cuz Sanchez can’t sustain a drive.

      I expect someone to NOT say something anonymously. Keep it behind closed doors. Why is it that no other team has this repeat problem? It’s the culture. It needs to change.

    They finally realized his qbr and stats in all 4 years are God awful and not starting qb material. Only thing that kept Sanchez from getting cut was a great defense and running game and a horrible extension by Mike T., which is why he’s unemployed right now.
