Jason WhitneyJonathan Vilma took at dig at the New York Jets
New Orleans Saints linebacker, Jonathan Vilma is not happy and this time it has nothing to do with NFL commissioner, Roger Goodell. After the ol’ “anonymous” source was quoted of saying defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo should be fired, Vilma sounded off.
“@larryholder:Saints player: Steve Spagnuolo should be fired | NOLA.com nola.com/saints/index.s…” dont give me “anonymous source” bs

Then the fun started. Vilma who was drafted by the New York Jets out of the University of Miami, took a jab at his former team that he played four seasons with prior to joining the New Orleans Saints.
“I’m bothered you reported it,” Vilma said. “We’re not the Jets, who run to the media for everything.”
After a tumultuous season the Saints just endured, this seems like the last thing Vilma and the Saints should be engaging in. The Saints’ organization should be worried about improving their football team for next September and leave the drama behind.

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...
Sean Payton's contract extension has been a huge relief and added some future stability to a team that had anything but that during this 7-9 season. But just how stable are the Saints as we enter this offseason? The fact that Payton is coming back is big not only huge because this season proved how desperately the Saints need him but also because the team may be going through...
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...
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.
Unfortunately, it appears as if the damage control is nowhere near complete for Sean Payton and the Saints...
After catching a glimpse of Rex Ryan‘s arm tattoo, his bizarre calf ink suddenly looks less insane.
All of Ryan’s hard work this season — one that saw the Jets go 6-10 — is paying off, as he was spotted Thursday catching some rays down in the Bahamas. One glimpse of the sunbathing coach, however, revealed that he actually has more body art than originally believed.

Put yourself in the position of an NFL head coach who undergoes intense media scrutiny every day. Your team just finished a seriously disappointing season with a 6-10 record, your general manager has been fired, and your job security is in serious doubt...

The New York Jets have violated the NFL's media policy by not making coach Rex Ryan or other team executives available within a week of the end of the regular season.
Ryan and owner Woody Johnson will meet with the media on Jan. 8. The season ended Sunday, Dec. 30.
The Professional Football Writers of America lodged a complaint with the league on Wednesday.
Check out the ink that New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan apparently sports on his right bicep.I'm no expert, but it appears to be a tattoo of his wife wearing nothing but a No. 6 New York Jets jersey -- the same as much-maligned quarterback Mark Sanchez. Oh, and did I mention that the tattoo's likeness also resembles Jets quarterback Tim Tebow's signature "Tebowing...
Relieved of his general manager duties this week, Mike Tannenbaum bid farewell to the Jets ownership group, players and fans in an official statement to the media
We at Down and Distance have discovered the reason behind Mark Sanchez not being benched until late in the season for the New York Jets!
No, it isn’t Ancient Aliens nor the Mayans, but rather because Jets head coach Rex Ryan has a Tattoo of number six! Well, sort of..
Rex was spotted in the Bahamas Vacationing (While other non-playoff teams are getting their end of the year work...
The New York Daily News has caught up with a vacationing Rex Ryan in the Bahamas. Photographer Andrew Theodorakis snapped the above picture of Ryan, and in it, you can see a tattoo...of Ryan's wife...wearing a Mark Sanchez jersey....while potentially Tebowing.
This is more than likely either a Photoshopped effort by someone at the Daily News, or a tremendous troll job by...
Wrecks Ryan?No matter how you spell Rex Ryan, the Jets are still a train wreck.Football fans have long regarded the Cowboys, with its owner Jerry 'Botox Surgeons Gone Wild' Jones, as the league’s ranking dysfunctional circus of a team, but over the last four years, and especially with the addition of Tim Tebow this year, that distinction is now a trademark of the New York...
