We can remember when Rex Ryan called out the entire NFL to beat the New England Patriots.
Now, the worst defense in the history of the football, called out the Jets. Jonathan Vilma, a former Jet himself, blasted reporter Larry Holder of the New Orleans Times-Picayune, who quoted an anonymous source that they should fire defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo.
Obviously ticked by the move, Vilma let it fly challenging the unnamed player to step up, or shut it down.
Holder contacted Vilma and was told frankly: “I’m bothered you reported it,” Vilma said. “We’re not the Jets who run to the media for everything.”
Ouch, when asked if the player was incorrect, Vilma replied: “That’s not the question or the point. If he’s man enough to tell you, he should be man enough to put his name on it. And you should do the same.”
