Unfortunately, it sounds like “its on”, in the Jets locker room.
Longest tenured Jet, G Brandon Moore, fired back at Santonio Holmes’ latest comments regarding the offensive line.
“He’s obviously got the green light to evaluate every position on the team,” Moore said. “I just didn’t think captaincy entailed that. I’ve never seen a captain do that. That’s not leading. That’s not being a leader. It actually fragments the locker room. It’s not productive.”
Brandon feels, as we all do, this sheds light on the chemistry in the locker room currently.
“Obviously, it’s OK to do that,” said Moore, alluding to Rex Ryan’s freedom-of-speech policy. “This organization let’s you say whatever you want. There’s no muzzle. But as a professional, there are some things you do muzzle. I’ve muzzled my mouth numerous times. It’s called being a pro. It’s called taking care of your brothers in the locker room, the guys who fight for each other.”
Asked if he’s upset, Moore said: “Yeah, I am. I’ve just never seen anything like this.”
Apparently, Moore doesn’t like the open door policy.
“Somebody at the top is telling him it’s OK,” Moore said. Turning sarcastic, Moore added, “He’s the captain. If that’s how the captain feels about things, that’s the psyche of the offense, I guess. Everybody takes their marching orders from that.”
Hang on, this could turn out to be a bumpy ride for the Jets.
