New York Jets special teams coach Mike Westhoff had nothing but nasty words for ex-Jets punter Steve Weatherford.
Talk about letting the door kick you on the way out.
Weatherford signed with the Giants as a free agent, has said he did not want to come back to the Jets. For Westhoff, the feelings were mutual.
“I was disappointed in some of the poor performances that he had at the end of the year,” Westhoff said. “It wasn’t very good. You were there. You were up in New England? The ball went straight out (of bounds). … There were times when he just didn’t do the job. I was looking to get better than what he did at that point in time. … Wasn’t good enough, in my opinion. It wasn’t. I don’t want to be 23rd in the NFL. That’s where he was.”
23rd, as in the Jets ranking with an average of 42.6 yards per punt last season.
“I was very happy with Steve in some things he did and very, very disappointed in others,” Westhoff said. “To tell you the truth, I don’t want to be 23rd. I’m not 23rd in anything else.”
