From a thousand miles away, former Jets tackle Wayne Hunter knew exactly what was happening in his old locker room.
He didn’t like it then, and he doesn’t like it now.
Now with the Rams, Hunter said the culture that creates anonymous rip jobs like yesterday’s on Tim Tebow made it hard to be a Jet.
“I got sick of guys doing that,” Hunter said, via Kevin Armstrong of the New York Daily News. “I spoke about that. That sucks.”
At the same time, Hunter acknowledges it happens for a reason.
“But then Rex [Ryan] gives an open locker room,” Hunter said. “He knows the personalities.”
Another former Jet, Rams backup quarterback Kellen Clemens, said he also enjoys the tranquility of the Midwest.
“We’ve got a great quarterback situation. We’ve got a good room,” Clemens said. “We don’t have any of the stuff.”
The Rams are 3-5-1, barely better than the Jets at 3-6. But if you’re going to be bad, better to do it in peace.
