'Jets Turmoil': Greg McElroy Says Team Filled With 'Extremely Selfish Individuals'

It seems like everyone these days has something to say about the New York Jets, and Wednesday fourth-string quarterback Greg McElroy made his opinions about the 2011-12 season clear to everybody in the Birmingham, AL area -- or, so he thought.

"It’s the first time I’ve ever been around extremely selfish individuals," McElroy told WZNN-FM, as transcribed by NFL.com. "I think that’s maybe the nature of the NFL. But there were people within our locker room that didn’t care whether we won or lost as long as they got their … they really had a good game individually. And that’s the disappointing thing."

McElroy's comments have now become national and come the offseason season it will be interesting how head coach Rex Ryan will handles the backup quarterbacks comments.

"It’s going to take a lot to kind of come together next year," McElroy said. "I think the fact that we struggled at times this year really led to a really corrupt mind-set within the locker room. But I think we’re going to regroup and I know that we’ll be a better team because of the trials and tribulations this year."

McElroy was a seventh-round pick by the Jets and spent the year on injured reserve after undergoing preseason thumb surgery.
