After the New York Jets 41-3 loss to the New England Patriots, Leonard Williams, Sheldon Richardson and Brandon Marshall all spoke out.If you thought couldn’t get any worse for the New York Jets after their humiliating 41-3 loss to the Patriots in New England on Saturday, you’d be dead wrong.
The continuing madness in the locker room rages on. This time it comes in the form of a familiar face.
According to Rich Cimini of ESPN New York, Sheldon Richardson called out teammate Brandon Marshall.
As if he still doesn’t understand what he says to the public matters, the troublesome fourth-year pro decided to question B-Marsh’s football integrity.
First, Marshall called the loss “embarrassing.” This prompted a head-scratching response from Richardson.
“He should be embarrassed,” said Richardson, confirming he meant Marshall.
“No reason,” Richardson said, in response to why Marshall should be embarrassed. “He just should be. He knows what he did.”
Richardson did not provide specifics on the matter.
“I don’t care what that guy says,” Richardson said, commenting on whether he was upset by Marshall’s take on the Snapchat.
Asked if he respects the receiver, Richardson said, “Personally? Yeah. Professionally?”
If that wasn’t enough, stud defensive lineman Leonard Williams added a little insight into the team’s readiness to take on Tom Brady‘s squad on Saturday.
“Guys just weren’t ready to play,” Williams, the team’s most promising star, told ESPN.com. “We didn’t really play with a lot of passion, a lot of enthusiasm. It seemed like we were out there, going through the motions.”
“Me, personally, I play hard every game. I know a lot of other guys on this team do, but some people are probably looking past the season, thinking that it’s over and stuff like that.”
While numerous reports have the second-year head coach safe for 2017 with the organization, his players’ words and actions are steadily painting a gloomy picture.
The 4-11 Jets will wrap up the 2016 season next Sunday at MetLife Stadium against Rex Ryan and the Buffalo Bills.
