San Diego Chargers tight end Randy McMichael's comments that it was the Chargers who beat themselves and not the New York Jets didn't play well with Gang Green, as Coach Rex Ryan and some players responded in the aftermath of New York's 27-21 victory Sunday. The San Diego Chargers beat the San Diego Chargers, McMichael said. Nothing to do with the New York Jets. Ryan, who is almost never at a loss for words, responded with the Ron Burgundy line from Anchorman: "Stay classy, San Diego." But according to the Newark Star-Ledger, former Chargers and current Jets cornerback had even more to say about his former team, implying that nothing had changed with the Chargers' inability to hold leads in big games. "When youre up by 11 points in the fourth quarter, and you cant even finish the game up, that shows what kind of team you are: a team that cant finish, Cromartie told the newspaper. And thats been San Diego the whole time. There it is. Stinging words from a former employee who certainly sounded disgruntled enough to rub it in a little bit against the Chargers.

The New York Jets currently sit at 4-3, likely a game or two behind the place many people thought they would be at this point of the season.
