And that is enough, according to Mike Francesa. The big guy says it is time to stop clapping back at the Broncos coach.
“Hackett, Saleh and Rodgers should all shut up about Sean Payton,” Francesa tweeted. “Let your play do your talking when you travel to Denver on October 8th. Make your statement there.”
Is this Francesa running a little interference for Payton given they are both branches on the Bill Parcells coaching tree? Perhaps. But that does not necessarily mean he is wrong. We are approaching the point where the Jets doth protest too much. Talk is cheap, as Tom Coughlin used to say. Play the game. And in this case, the game is Week 5 in Denver. Get your popcorn ready then. But in the meantime, keep your mouth shut. Back after this.
