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.”

The New Orleans Saints had one of the worst defenses in the NFL this season, which of course reflects poorly on defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo. It was a hectic year in New Orleans between the bounty scandal and the suspension of head coach Sean Payton, so it’s tough to judge anyone based on the past 10 months.
At least one Saints player feels as though Spagnuolo is to blame...
The 2012 NFL season will not be one in which the New Orleans Saints will wish to remember. Take away the losing record and failure to make the playoffs, coupled with all of the player and coaching and executive suspensions, and this past season is one to forget in The Big Easy.
