Steve Weatherford did some damage control on Friday.  For anyone who didn’t see it, the Jets former punter had a lot to say about the development of Mark Sanchez.

Steve took to Twitter to offer some clarification:

If it got out of control Steve, that is because of the comments that you made.  The comments were negative, and you have been around NY long enough to know that a big deal would be made ouf of them.

I think the moral of the story is that the opinion of a punter that USED to be on the team just isn’t relevant.  Pipe down Steve, keep it to yourself next time.
