Todd Bowles: I really don’t have time for a bunch of BS

Todd Bowles didn’t mince words when he was asked about Sheldon Richardson‘s shots at former teammate Brandon Marshall on Monday. The Jets coach is fed up, essentially telling Richardson to shut up and move on.

“I really don’t have time for a bunch of BS that happened a year ago,” said Bowles, via Connor Hughes of NJ Advance Media. “We had six months to talk about it. All that sh– is over. [Richardson] has been well informed of it, and we’ve moved on from there.”

Richardson and Marshall nearly came to blows in the locker room last season. Their discord continued into the offseason even after the Jets released Marshall at his request, and he signed with the Giants.

Richardson renewed the verbal assault this week, saying the receiver was “drama queen-ish” and “quit on his team.”

“That whole situation was sticky because we were losing, and he did little things that were drama queen-ish,” Richardson said on the Michael Kay Show on ESPN New York 98.7. “Dogging out this guy, that guy. It’s everybody’s fault except his. And there’s a reason this, a reason that, and everybody pointing the finger when you losing, and then no one wants to say something to him. Then I say something to him, and I’m the criminal, the bad guy, and the media just ran with it.

“That man knows what he did to the locker room a little bit, and I was the one who addressed that and still will address it to this day. So if he can’t come out to the media and tell them what he did and how he actually quit on this team well before the season was over, well that’s all in itself.”

  1. Just another day in Jet land , Bowles let this happen last year and lost the team , worst coach in the NFL , worst owner , worst QB , worst WR , I hear crickets at the Jet games this year … Hope Joe Namath is there doing jello shots with the cheerleaders

  2. irritable bowles.

    getting irritated or losing composure from a media question is a sure fire sign his days are numbered.

    he’ll be gone next year, new coach, and new qb.

  3. Regardless of what Marshall did or didn’t do, Richardson needs to shut up, GROW up, and stop with the petty backbiting. Since his breakout rookie year, he’s been known much more for his arrests, suspensions and poor attitude/mouth than his play. I can appreciate a little fire, but he really needs to take care of HIMSELF and his own play/ behavior before sounding off about others. Its divisive

  4. As a Dolphin fan, it would be very easy for me to use this as an excuse to poke fun at the Jets, but Richardson is dead right. The crap Brandon Marshall pulled last season is the same crap he’s been dumping on every locker room he’s been in for the past eleven seasons. That’s why, despite being a talented player, he’s now with his fifth NFL team. His act wears thin very quickly. Is it time for Sheldon Richardson to let bygones be bygones ? Yes, it is. But he’s not wrong, not one bit.
