The New York Jets actually won a game on Sunday.  (Yay!)  But of course, we can't go a week in the saga of the 2012 New York Jets without the biggest controversy and news story of the NFL season, win or lose.  The Jets are basically that one person in your life who can never be happy and depends on drama to surivive like it's oxygen.  You know those people.  You probably abhor those people.  The Jets are those people. This week, Bart Scott, who may or may not be one of the anonymous sources involved in bashing Tim Tebow, tried to lead a boycott against the media after the win over the Rams for publishing a report on anonymous sources ripping Tim Tebow.  He didn't succeed.  Yes, you can't make this up.  Via the New York Post... "Bart Scott tried to lead a media boycott in the locker room after the Jets beat the Rams on Sunday. But much like many of his attempted tackles, he failed. The Gang Green linebacker ordered every Jets defensive player to say nothing but “both teams played hard” to reporters, threatening anyone that don’t obey his wishes. Scott’s anger clearly stems from a report this week that published anonymous Jets players ripping Tim Tebow." Bart Scott also reportedly called one player, Yeremiah Bell, a sellout for talking to the media.  The Jets are the biggest clown show in sports this year and week after week they find new ways to take their own absurdities to higher levels.  At this point, the New York Jets should just go away for our collective sanity.  And i know the perfect solution - a media boycott of the New York Jets!  Of course that'll never happen as long as Tim Tebow is on the roster, but hey, a guy can dream, right?
