Unnamed Jets Player Calls The Patriots “Slow” And “Old”
Posted by Mike on November 13, 2008
If there could be anymore gasoline thrown onto the fire between the Jets and Patriots, one unnamed Jets offensive player just did. This Jets player told the NY Post ”
One Jets offensive player, who spoke under the condition of anonymity because he didn’t want to provide bulletin board fodder for the Patriots, talked about being “sick to our stomachs” about the Jets’ 19-10 loss in Week 2 at the Meadowlands. He felt the Patriots were vulnerable – particularly on defense. Not to mention it was the first game with Matt Cassel at quarterback, after Tom Brady was injured in Week 1 vs. the Chiefs. The player spoke matter-of-factly about how “slow” and “old” a number of the New England defenders are and how he believes the Jets should be able to put up “a lot of points” on them tonight”.
Our guess is that this player was Laveranues Coles. And expect Patriots coach Bill Belichick to have this quote printed everywhere across the Patriots facility today.
