Can’t stand bland quotes? Tired of hearing clichés from Antrel Rolle like “at the end of the day.” Don’t appreciate the Derek Jeter or David Wright media PR blitz? Than listen to an interview by Jets backup QB Greg McElroy with Eli & Stan on 97.3 The Zone down in Birmingham, Alabama. The big quote was McElroy’s take on the Jets locker room.
“It’s definitely not a fun place to be [the Jets locker room], I can assure you. It’s the first time I’ve ever been around extremely selfish individuals. And I think that’s maybe the nature of the NFL. But there were people within our locker room that didn’t care whether we won or lost as long as they got theirs they had a good game individually. And that’s the disappointing thing.” (Transcript courtesy of Bob’s Blitz).
McElroy went on to give some good analysis of the coaching staff.
Brian Costello, Jets beat reporter for the NY Post, didn’t seem to think that McElroy’s comments were smart.
