Bart Scott waves goodbye with one finger

The Jets don’t win quietly. That’s why it’s not a surprise they are full meltdown mode after their late season.

Bart Scott, who will reportedly get cut during the offseason, refused to speak to the media on Monday. A photographer approached and Scott flipped him off.

“Get that out of my [bleeping] face,” Scott said.

Darrelle Revis, who is usually very cooperative with the media, refused to speak as well.

Santonio Holmes, meanwhile, is still sitting on the team’s bench in Miami, unaware the season is over.

(Note: Holmes not actually in Miami. He was “escorted” past media Monday by the team’s P.R. staff.)

    “Can’t Wait” Scott, “Arm Bar” Revis, & “Wake and Bake” Holmes.

    What do you expect? He’ll be a Cowboy next year, by the way. Brooking’s gone, Ryan at DC… done deal.

  3. objectivenflfan says: Jan 2, 2012 11:05 AM

    Rex Ryan is like the dad who is best friends with his 12 year old son. Except there are 53 of them. And 12 of them are Antonio Cromarties.

    The Jets are classless from the head coach down.

  7. jetswin says: Jan 2, 2012 11:07 AM

    I hear “Can’t wait” tee shirts are real cheap on Bart’s website

  8. dirtdawg55 says: Jan 2, 2012 11:07 AM

    Now all of a sudden the Jests have nothing to say? Yeah, and then they and their fans wonder why everyone hates them.

    Big mouths and too much to say when it doesn’t matter. Closed lips and nothing to say when it does.

    Seriously. What a clueless and classless team. Grow a pair and man up!

  9. toledoohoh says: Jan 2, 2012 11:07 AM

    If their season is over, are they required to talk to the media?

  11. pastabelly says: Jan 2, 2012 11:08 AM

    . . . . . . and Rex Ryan just predicted that the Jets would win NEXT year’s Super Bowl.

  12. FinFan68 says: Jan 2, 2012 11:09 AM

    I guess he is reconsidering his “santa’s real y’all” commercial. He obviously can’t wait to get cut.

  15. tinopuno says: Jan 2, 2012 11:10 AM

    While definitely not ‘my team’, I have always kind of liked the Jets and even find fat Rex more entertaining than annoying. That said, the GM has certainly brought a large number of losers into the fold.

  16. clbrett06 says: Jan 2, 2012 11:10 AM

    This organization is screwed. It’s getting harder each day goes by being a Jets fan.

  17. thetooloftools says: Jan 2, 2012 11:10 AM

    I guess some teams can’t back up their coaches talk.

  18. tdk24 says: Jan 2, 2012 11:10 AM

    Hey Rexy, you reap what you sow, man.

  19. mrssmith says: Jan 2, 2012 11:11 AM

    No way Ravens take him back…

    First of all Harbaugh is not going to put up with him and second, McCLain is playing well and they have McClellan and Ellerbee who have both played well when they have gotten their shots.

  20. jrs1972 says: Jan 2, 2012 11:12 AM

    everything im reading about the jets is all signs the coach has zero control whatsoever over that team

  21. rambo08 says: Jan 2, 2012 11:12 AM

    Rex brought this all on himself.

  22. promin1 says: Jan 2, 2012 11:13 AM

    Brandon Marshall was right about Revis. There is no question he is a good corner, but if you watch replays, he gets away with murder on some of these WRs. Grabbing arms, jersey yanks and they never get called. Refs need to call a consistent game.

  23. coys10 says: Jan 2, 2012 11:13 AM

    Wow, this is a shock.

  24. patsgoingfor4 says: Jan 2, 2012 11:14 AM

  25. ravenator says: Jan 2, 2012 11:14 AM

    Meltdown!!! can;t wait to hear Tannenbaum justify this team’s performance. Great trade for Holmes, hahaha

  26. mrnick66 says: Jan 2, 2012 11:14 AM

    does anyone think the sexy rexy head coach will work out …just like his dad talk alot win alot less and then leave and be a DC like you are meant to do ps sorry rob you have no shot thanks to rex

  27. stlsteelerfan says: Jan 2, 2012 11:15 AM

    Remember last offseason when Bart Scott said, “We better back up our talk and win the Super Bowl this year, or we’ll be the laughingstock of the league.” Yeah, Bart, you’re right. 🙂 🙂 🙂

    Thanks for the laughs!!!!!!!!!!

    You and the Eagles both!!

  28. S says: Jan 2, 2012 11:16 AM

    Is this the end of the “swagerlicious” D in New York?

  29. ampats says: Jan 2, 2012 11:17 AM

    Florham Park,NJ….. BOOM

    The implosion has begun. The Captain was doing his best Ladanian T imitation yesterday on the bench after QUITTING on his team.. Bart Scott showed what a real POS he is. The jets are going to cut BS? CANT WAIT!

    What a great Monday it is here in New England.

    And to all the 28-21 posters, how do you like your jets now?

    Let the plans for the jets 44th begin.


  30. hunternuts says: Jan 2, 2012 11:18 AM

    @berniemadoffsides: So, Rex cuts him, his brother calls him up and asks his opinion, and Rex says he’s great, wish he was on my team, sign him? How does that make sense? Besides, Cowboys will have Carter starting next to Lee, I think they’re done with the “old vet” defensive philosophy.

  31. dienavinjohnson says: Jan 2, 2012 11:19 AM

    Stay classy Jets. You are every bad stereotype of NYC. You’re a bunch of big-mouthed, loud-talking, underachieving punks. You are the perfect reflection of your head coach and the crappy, sprawling, worn-out suburbs of Long Island where most of your idiot fans reside.

    The Giants are resilient, tough, business like and achieving. They are a great reflection of their coach and the Tri-State area where their fan-base resides.

    By the way, I am a fan of neither of these teams. But I do respect one of them.

    Go Pats!

  32. newenglandsports11 says: Jan 2, 2012 11:19 AM

    At least he didn’t throw an officials flag into the stands like he did in 2007.

  33. vikingdoode says: Jan 2, 2012 11:20 AM

    Love the fact NY Jets are crumbling with fat loud mouth Rex toes Ryan

  34. jbandit2116 says: Jan 2, 2012 11:20 AM

    What a bunch of bums this whole team is…when they win they shoot their mouths off like they won the Super Bowl. Now that they’ve tanked all year they all of a sudden get quiet. The Jets are a sorry excuse for a football team and they got exactly what they had coming to them. I have no doubt that most of the NFL is laughing and would gladly give crybaby Bart Scott a finger in return.

  35. algrls says: Jan 2, 2012 11:21 AM

    The team resembles the coach, their both a mess. Don’t stop with Bart, begin with Ryan!

  36. goblue714 says: Jan 2, 2012 11:21 AM

    CAN’T WAIT!…….till you get cut. Lol

  37. java49 says: Jan 2, 2012 11:23 AM

    He’s all mouth..he only shined in Baltimore playing next to 55 and 52

  38. mistrezzrachael says: Jan 2, 2012 11:23 AM

    Seems like anyone/everyone who…TALKS BIG NFL, gets thrown to the dogs sooner than later.

    That encompasses the entire jets organization…so screw everyone of them..and their fans too.

    They have this coming to them..cause of their big mouths.

  39. citizenstrange says: Jan 2, 2012 11:25 AM

    The Jets ran though the raindrops to even make the playoffs the last two years – especially the first year with the Colts and Bengals losing on purpose to keep the Steelers out of the playoffs – but their luck ran out.

    Leinart and Sanchez are essentially the same quarterback but Sanchez has had the advantage of a defense that could drag him to the finish line.

    Roethlisberger, Flacco, Sanchez, etc. would all have terrible records if they lost games every time they didn’t score 20 points …. or for example if they had the Patriot’s defense they would go 0-16.

    So the Jets either have to get better on defense or get a quarterback who can actually win games.

  40. purpleattack says: Jan 2, 2012 11:26 AM

    I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I am so thankful that Rex is not the coach in Baltimore. This idiotic game he plays cannot end well for anyone involved.

  41. rr2000k says: Jan 2, 2012 11:27 AM

    I love it. Can’t wait til Rex comes out and says they’ll win the Super Bowl next year.

  42. cdngatorfan says: Jan 2, 2012 11:27 AM

    Aren’t they going to the superbowl? Say it ain’t so Rexy! you told ’em so!

    Don’t worry Rexy, no one thinks you’re a loser, because you’re going to the superbowl next year for sure right?

  43. zenofobe says: Jan 2, 2012 11:27 AM

    He wasn’t waving good-bye. He was just showing off his imaginary Super Bowl ring.

  44. 8man says: Jan 2, 2012 11:29 AM

    I don’t have any particular love for the Jets as a Patriots fan, but I do believe they have the potential to be a quality organization and Ryan can be a successful head coach.

    Look ,they made it to the AFC title game two consecutive years and did it each time with all games on the road. My Patriots couldn’t win at home with a week off. So that is saying something.

    But they all just need to shut up, and concentrate on getting the job done instead of making themselves targets for the media and the rest of the league. Eventually, running your mouth catches up with you.

  45. addict2sport says: Jan 2, 2012 11:33 AM

    Embarrassing lack of character throughout that organization. Sad.

  46. texansfan2011 says: Jan 2, 2012 11:35 AM

    Hey Rob, this is Rex, we both F”ed up this year again as coaches, and are losers again. I want you to come to New York, and be my assistant head coach. Between you and I coaching this awesome team that I have here, we will win the Super Bowl for at least 5 years in a row. I know that Dad would love to see us coaching the same team together. I want to be able to slap my offense around like Dad did, and the Defense is all there for you to slap around and let them know you are the boss.

    Rex that sounds like a real good deal, and I know that you already know where all the good places to eat are located. Since you have some free time like me, why don’t you come to Dallas, I have a lot of good places to eat here and they let me bill it to Jerry’s account. Tonight I’m going to have for dinner is a lot of CROW, finished off with a few dozen HUMBLE PIES. Can you make it down for dinner, I will pick you up with the Hummer since it’s big enough for the two of us and a suit case or two.



    Eat and

    The silence is deafening at The Jets Hangar………I’m loving’ it!

  48. binarybulge says: Jan 2, 2012 11:39 AM

    Overpaid punk. To think these guys make millions and can’t give a simple exit interview. He’ll probably end up making some money somewhere else, too.

  49. bullcharger says: Jan 2, 2012 11:41 AM

    It’s so nice to know I don’t have to listen to Rex Ryan for the next few weeks.

    Holmes is a terrible locker room guy or he would still be with the Steelers.

    Plaxico was never that good, even in his prime.

    Derrick Mason was awful and cut.

    LT was over the hill.

    Shonn Greene is average at best.

    Sanchez is never going to be more than just an average QB.

    The Jets defense was still pretty good this year… athough they need a decent run stuffer after losing Jenkins.

    They had no offense at all. That was known before the season and it played out as expected. They didn’t under peform, they just weren’t very good.

  50. stevincinci says: Jan 2, 2012 11:42 AM

    Thanks you J-e-t-s. From all of us in Cincinnati. Kudos to our good friend Carson Palmer on that 16th int of the season in just 10 games. (Dalton had 13 in 16 games.) Thanks for the #1 pick for your int qb, Raiders. He’ll have 24 next year on a full season. And last but not least, Tebow sucks. Thanks for that loss too, Denver. 6 for 22 on passing. Yeah, that will beat Pittsburgh.

  51. rahavort says: Jan 2, 2012 11:44 AM

    Just a team with no class at all….actually, an organization with no class at all. When the Jets win: they talk about how good they are. When the Jets lose: they talk about how good they are but “missed opportunities” They’re missing a lot more than that, how about a QB that is actually a leader and doesn’t make terrible throws to try to save a sack? As for some of them not talking to the media, it’s a team of babies that can’t take a loss and congratulate the other team.

  52. rpiotr01 says: Jan 2, 2012 11:50 AM

    Amazing how a competent QB would have covered up for this whole mess. “The Sanchize” better not appear in anymore magazine spreads or TV commercials this off-season.

  53. richm2256 says: Jan 2, 2012 11:52 AM

    If the Jets truly want to be taken seriously, and truly want to be “winners”, this is a turning point for the organization as a whole ….

    There isn’t a player, a coach, a member of the front office, who can’t look in the mirror and say “I need to do a BETTER job, starting TODAY”.

    There is not a man on this team or in this organization who can say “I did my job as well as could be expected”.

    With every man dedicated to making serious improvements in their execution of their jobs, this team can’t help getting better.

    Ryan needs to realize that while “bluster” gets one “attention”, it only gets one so far. I’d have a lot more respect if the man just quit boasting, and committed to building a better organization…..

    When you’re NOT a loser, Coach, you won’t have to tell us.

    We’ll be able to see for ourselves.

    Jets fans have been waiting 43 years – now to be 44 – and they deserve that much from you.

  54. larry321 says: Jan 2, 2012 11:52 AM

    I’m sure the day you find out you lost your job, you’re stopping to chat with reporters on the way out. And BTW, all these comments about Scott to the Pats, Ravens, etc etc, are silly, the guy is completely washed up. Well, maybe he can ride the bench with Shawn Ellis up in NE next year for $4 million.

  55. John Paff says: Jan 2, 2012 11:53 AM

    Add Bart Scott to the list of Bmore defenders who owe one big payday to Ray Lewis and never make it in their new city.

    Should have signed with Bmore for less and would be getting a second contract now!

  56. 1historian says: Jan 2, 2012 11:54 AM

    jets fans – you have to admit that you had this coming – when you mouth off ALL THE DAMN TIME sooner or later you’re gonna have to deliver the damn goods.

    FYI – I don’t hate the jets, but I do find them amusing at times.

  57. steelerchicken says: Jan 2, 2012 11:55 AM

    What are the big wigs at the 4-letter network going to do? their favorite team is done

  58. melikefootball says: Jan 2, 2012 11:55 AM

    For a team I use to enjoy watching play but since Ryan has arrived that has really changed. It starts with the coach, and the players are acting just as he does. I have a hard time believing Jet fans as rough and crude as they want others to see actually enjoying paying their good money to see the crap on the field and actions of coaches and players off the field. Fans are washing their cars next weekend when they should be sitting in front of the tube watching the playoffs.

  59. rajbais says: Jan 2, 2012 12:00 PM

    The Jets offense is bad. How many 3 and outs?

    Look at the colts D with a bad O..Pure suck.
    Bart Scott, Good luck dude. Im sure you will land somewhere

  71. otis52gsh says: Jan 2, 2012 12:38 PM

    Their EXTREMELY OVERRATED coach and QB put them in this position. He just needs to shut his big trap. No Ryan’s in the playoffs is awesome. Neither is anything close to what their father is.

    I guess some teams can’t back up their coaches talk.

    And most coaches are smart enough not to keep their team constantly in everyone else’s cross-hairs.

  74. tothefellowshipofthemiserable says: Jan 2, 2012 12:39 PM

    This is a coach, that antagonizes opponents, with his brash, bold predictions etc. This put a tremendous amount of pressure on the players, and it’s obvious they collapsed. If Rex Ryan can just shut up and let them play the game, we as NFL fans would’nt have to be as hateful toward the Jets. Everyone loves to hit the big bull’s eye if you put one up !

  75. cowhawkfan says: Jan 2, 2012 1:07 PM

    Both Ryan’s have loud mouths and can’t walk the talk. They need to shutup until they do.

  76. johnnyb1976 says: Jan 2, 2012 1:07 PM

    Bengals > jets….. Wait I’m not done….. Tebow > jets…. I know that’s hard for jets fans to swallow… Wait I forgot… Dalton > Sanchez… Sit at home and enjoy the playoffs jets fans you deserve it

  77. huejackson says: Jan 2, 2012 1:12 PM

    i wonder if Bart Scott will be part of the New Defense in Oakland Next year,
    Its going to be the best Defense in the NFL.
    So far they got Jack Del Rio as the coach

  78. packerfanfordecades says: Jan 2, 2012 1:21 PM

    I’m really blessed to be a Green Bay Packers fan.

    The news coming from people who are part of the Lambeau organization isn’t uniformly heart-warming 100% of the time. But, I can testify that news never has this fan-discouraging character, thank goodness.

    Are you really a Bengals fan talking smack? Really? A Bengals fan? You are 2011’s version of the Bucs. You took advantage of a weak schedule. Difference is, you made it to the playoffs and will get punked by a rookie QB and Bum’s son….go back to eating your chilimac LOSER 😉

    New Jersey jets are in a New Year Melt Down, don’t worry, by tomorrow they will be talking about next year Super Bowl. Bill p.s. funny that its hard to find one jet ruining his mouth on the Dolphin blogs, of course its hard to brag when you just got your butt kick.

    Linebacker Bart Scott : “All I know is I’ve got a guaranteed contract for $4 million,” he snarled. He then used an expletive at a photographer and stuck out his middle finger, adding: “Take a picture of this.”

    A nice snapshot of the modern pro athlete. Stick it, Scott.

  88. tatum064 says: Jan 2, 2012 10:32 PM

    I’ll miss these guys..obviously the Jets have to mature and break up the team, but they got the Jets out of Pats shadow temporarily and punked them in the playoffs when it counted. Now they have to take the next step, which means more consistent play from the QB position, if not a change, and another OC.

    it was a nice run, J-E-T-S

    Can’t wait!!!!

    quote of the decade!!!
