The Lions and Bart Scott are still yapping

Post-game trash talk usually has a short shelf life.  By Wednesday after the game, most of the time players and coaches have moved on to the next opponent.  That hasn’t been the case this week with the Lions and Bart Scott.

To review: Scott called the Lions the dirtiest team in the league.  Lions coach Jim Schwartz responded by saying folks should consider the source.  When Scott heard that Wednesday, he started chirping again.

“I don’t have to play Detroit for another four years, so I could care less about what that man has to say,” Scott via the New York Post. “He doesn’t even exist to me anymore. I don’t have to see him ever again.  Am I going to see him in the Super Bowl or playoffs? Probably not. He’ll be watching TV in January.”

The cycle reached its unnatural conclusion on Thursday when Lions defensive coordinator Gunther Cunningham went off.

“So I don’t want this one-trick pony going, ‘Oh, the Lions are dirty,’” Cunningham said via the Detroit Free Press. “We hit you. And I told you that in the beginning of the year, or last year, we’re going to hit you. And we’re not going to push you out on the sideline. We’re going to hit you. You’re legal, we’re going to hit you.”

Cunningham said a Jets player got off the bench to hit Lions safety Louis Delmas on a play near the sideline.

“For them to call us a dirty football really [ticks] me off. We play tough, we play hard, and we’re going to continue to do that, and we’re going to get better at that. And mister what’s his name? Scott? Maybe he can read that if you write it.”

    Bart Scott is full of it. The Lions are 2-6. If they were the “dirtiest team” they really suck at being dirty.

    I hate the Jets and all their players. What a bunch of jokes. Whine whine whine. Talk talk talk. They made an improbable run and won two playoff games last year after being 7-9, and have yet to stop running their mouths. Win something that counts besides the preseason superbowl before you talk. What a bunch of ignorant, entitled pricks. Just play and respect the game.

    The Lions are a good, upcoming team and have gone about their business without whining. (They should have beaten the Bears obviously, and my Packers too. Heck they shoulda beat the Jets, all those games were very close and they had all three essentially) No whining though. No B*tching. No excuses. No complaining.

    Take notes Viking fans… And Jets players/fans.

    Wow, it sounds like Gunther absolutely OWNED Bart. That was pretty awesome.

    Consider the source about covers it.

    The only thing Bart Scott is good for is rest stop blow jobs. Wait…what?

    The Jets are like the Miami Heat of football except that their record is better. They’re similar in the fact that no one wants to see them win because everybody hates them.
    Here’s to Cleveland humbling them this weekend, especially #17.

    Bart Scott will not be in the league in 4 years.

    And no one knows better than Bart Scott about watching TV in February.

    You are what your record says you are.

    Leave it to the Greenbay fan to talk start the hate, how about you tell 12 to win a game when it counts. I watched the game and their were clearly a number of late hits by the lions, and one that was on the final drive of regualtion to give us an additional 15 yds. Yea we talk $h%& get over it, thats just who we are. Aaron Rodgers talks crazy every when he does the motion with that dumb a$$ belt he puts on. Before we anoint him best in class how about he win a game when it matters. That is all.

    Bart Scott doesn’t know when to shut it. He was annoying in Baltimore and he’s annoying in New York. He’s a mediocre linebacker who road Ray Lewis’ coat tails and is riding on Harris’ production now.

    The Lions aren’t even relevant……..end of story.

    The Jets talk big, but they fckin back it up. Yea, they were lucky to reach the playoffs last year, but once they were there, they left their mark. This year they’re 6-2 with the toughest part of their schedule behind them (not that the 2nd half is particularly easy…), and they’re gonna continue to get better.

    Keep on hating, and they’ll keep on winning.

    Yea we talk $h%& get over it, thats just who we are.

    I’m trying to figure out what bugs me more…guys like Scott and Edwards who just can’t shut up, or fans who use the first person when referring to the team.

    I give up. I’ll call it a tie.

  14. bbb82 says: Nov 11, 2010 5:52 PM

    I somehow doubt Scott will still be on the Jets in 4 years.

    Always love to see ex Ravens like Bart Scott and James Harrison making headlines.

    Yes….James Harrison was cut by us.

  16. Deb says: Nov 11, 2010 6:01 PM

    Yes, ravenmuscle, and then Harrison went on to earn two Super Bowl rings and become the NFL defensive MVP. I’m sure he’s very grateful.

    Bart Scott was yapping back when the Jets played the Bills. Yeah, the Jets won, But Bart didn’t keep his promise during that game…. He said that Ryan Fitzpatrick was fair game once he crossed the line of scrimmage and that he can get hit like any other player. I think Bart had like 2 tackles and no hits on Fitz. Fitzy also ran for like 50 yards! Bart Scott is only good at one thing… running his mouth.

    Yeah like shutting out the Rexual healers JETS JETS JETS. Ha ha way to show up in that big game. You talk when you lose, you talk when you win. How can we take your team or fanbase seriously?

    regular season counts…..right?

    Bart Scott is like the kid on the playground that picks on all the scrawny kids. This guy needs to shut his yap, pronto. Him and Rexy make a good team, though… those who talk excessive smack with little to no hardware to call their own.

  21. jetsarestacked says: Nov 11, 2010 7:56 PM

    haha i love bart scott. anyone who doesnt think he is a damn good linebacker shouldnt be allowed to talk about the nfl. moreoever, i watched the jets/lions games and there were a lot of dirty plays.

    keep up the jets hate, dbags. 6-2! taste it!

    He’s barely above the talent level of Channing Crowder but talks just as much. Enjoy watching your coach in costume, what’s next drag?

    The New Jersey Jets are a sideshow attraction. They will never be relevant. Their spokesperson is an elderly, drunk bisexual, who got into the HOF the old fashioned way… on his knees.

    Also, my guess is that 90 year old Gunther would still stomp a mudhole in Bart Scott.

    Go Lions!
