The media has had an interesting agenda so far this offseason. ESPN has led the charge, camping out in Cortland like it were Woodstock. Their interest in creating controversy with the Jets is obvious.
However, they are not the only ones. There is a large anti”Jets agenda in the mainstream media. After this week, it’s clear that Mike Florio and the folks at Pro Football Talk are near the front of the line.
Take a look at the reports by them over the last couple of days.
There was a lot of talk at draft time, as we all remember, about drafting Quinton Coples over Melvin Ingram. Not too many people were in favor of the move the Jets made, all saying that the Jets should have taken Ingram.
Fast forward to Thursday night, the opening game of the preseason for the Chargers. Melvin Ingram played well, recording 2 tackles (per nfl.com), but getting good penetration on almost every play. He played well, no doubt. Mike Florio heads to the computer and writes an entry that is titled “Melvin Ingram Makes Mark….Jets fans likely already grumbling“(click on the title to read)
Oh, we were Mike? We were grumbling after Ingram played well in one preseason game, after Coples hadn’t even played yet? Glad you told us, because we weren’t aware we were supposed to be grumbling.
