Mark Sanchez (Cummings/AP) is he is right leader for the Jets?
Another fight, you’re kidding right? Sadly, no, the New York Jets once again lost their cool and another fight happened. Even though head coach Rex Ryan had a forceful speech with them. Is this a reason to be concerned with? Or, just a bunch of men ready to hit someone else?
It may be both reasons, but the fact is the need to control their tempers the best they can. Maybe it starts with the leadership on the team, let’s look at the captains. Oh wait, Rex Ryan has decided not to name captains. Usually leaders of the team will just step up. Which may have happened, Mark Sanchez has tried to step up and lead this team. However, is following him? Looking at the situation yesterday, a 20-man brawl happened, and if you watch it you see Tim Tebow throwing people off of other people and trying to keep the peace. Meanwhile, you have Sanchez has far as away as possible, but when someone puts a microphone in front of him he wants to be a leader. A leader is defined in adversity, and not when he wants to be.
Another issue that happens to many teams is they get tired of hearing the same thing from the coaching staff, maybe that’s the case. Look at the last few years and who the Jets have brought in. Have they brought in any true leaders? Santonio Holmes isn’t much of a leader; Antonio Cromartie likes to run his mouth. Tebow would be a great leader, but let’s be honest since when is a backup quarterback a team leader? The Jets better figure this out fast. They went from a dominate defense to the “joke” of the league within a year. Maybe the Tebow circus has something to do with it, but the last few days the fighting has made sure everyone has noticed them and not in a positive way.
Some players think this a good thing; it shows that they are willing to fight anyone. Even though he has been sidelined with an injury Santonio Holmes thinks so “They’re taking their frustrations a little bit out on each other, which shows what happens in training camp around this time all around the NFL. You look at other teams, I’m pretty sure some guys have gotten into fights throughout their practice days. The same thing here with us guys. We’re ready to hit somebody else. We’ve been doing it long enough with ourselves, and Cincinnati can’t come fast enough for these guys right now.” Homes is most likely out for the first preseason game.
Either way you look at it, maybe it’s not the players fault, but the situation. After all the media has made huge deals out of nothing so far this year.
