New York Jets' Aftermath: Things Turn Ugly As Jets Clean Out Lockers

The Jets appear to be imploding following an 8-8 season in which they failed to make the playoffs

It is apparently an ugly day in Florham Park as the New York Jets deal with the aftermath of losing to the Miami Dolphins Sunday and falling short of the playoffs, as well as with Santonio Holmes' bad behavior and benching near the end of Sunday's season-ending loss.

Jason LaCanfora of the NFL Network tweeted that the Jets "are imploding on all levels right now -- players, coaches and front office."

Rex Ryan apparently cried this morning when addressing his team, pleading for unity that does not seem to exist.

The Santonio Holmes situation is one that won't go away soon. One player said today that "He's [Holmes] a cancer. It's like dealing with a 10 year old." Mark Cannizzaro of the New York Post pointed the finger directly at Ryan for the Holmes debacle, since it was the coach who made the opinionated Holmes a team captain. Cannizaro wrote:

"Ryan giving Holmes the title of captain was like a father handing the keys and a bottle of booze to his 16-year-old son and telling him to "party on'' with the new sports car."

Then there was Bart Scott flipping off reporters on his way out of the locker room today, as well as Holmes being ushered out without being allowed to speak to the media.

The Jets may not be the 'Big Brother' of their playoff-bound city rivals, the New York Giants. What they definitely are, though, is the best circus in town.
