Jets linebacker Bart Scott, on the heels of his team’s second loss to the Dolphins in less than three weeks, broke out the sarcasm stick when talking about the game.
“They’re a great team,” Scott said after the 30-25 defeat, per Tim Graham of ESPN.com. “They’ll probably contend for the
Super Bowl. They have a tremendous offense, great running backs, a
great quarterback, a great tight end. They are stacked across the
board. I’m serious. They are great.
“Like I said, they have a great team. They have a tremendous
offense and they showed it today. They are Super Bowl contenders and
they will probably take it all the way.”
The point is that Scott thinks the Dolphins aren’t very good. But what the hell does that say about Scott and his band of paper airplanes?
The Jets are now 4-4 — and they’re a pathetic 1-4 since starting with three wins. So even if the Dolphins won’t be going to the Super Bowl, the Jets by all appearances won’t be going to the playoffs without 53 tickets.
