TEAMS: New York Jets

It can't be easy trying to manage 53-plus overgrown children with six- or seven-figure bank accounts, and the New York Jets PR staff is trying as hard as possible. It's arguably the toughest job in the NFL, given the history of problem children the Jets have produced in recent years. Plus, there's that whole "media capital of the world" thing. In order to help their players with the media process, they've handed out "media bridge" cards that contain suggested phrases to use with reporters. Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News took some shots: Jets have given players "Media Bridges" card: List of phrases to use with reporters. Here's front: pic.twitter.com/T73EGZ9aDe — Manish Mehta (@MMehtaNYDN) August 21, 2013 Here's the back of "Media Bridge" card given to all Jets players: pic.twitter.com/ljdBJZm51h — Manish Mehta (@MMehtaNYDN) August 21, 2013 "Your audience would be interesting to knowing [sic] that" is a personal favorite. The rest aren't too bad, but nobody will ever use that with the media. Besides, who in the media wants to get a quote with that in it? You realize we're looking for sound bites and statements that don't sound manufactured, right? Again, I can see the rest of it being said, but it also seems like common sense. Just more silliness from Gang Green.
