Bart Scott attempts to lead teammates in media boycott after Jets win

From the "We can only imagine what would have happened if the Jets lost" file ...

After his team completed an impressive 27-13 victory in St. Louis, Jets linebacker Bart Scott -- peeved by a New York Daily News report earlier in the week that cited anonymous Jets players ripping Tim Tebow -- tried to organize a media boycott in the postgame locker room.

From the New York Post's Bart Hubbach:

According to Hubbach, Scott was "blaming everyone in the media for the Daily News" story. In that report one unnamed member of the Jets' defense was quoted as saying that Tebow "is terrible," while a second player added that "we don't look at him as a quarterback." Last January, the Daily News also ran a story with several members of the organization bashing Mark Sanchez anonymously. That report coincided with Peyton Manning's anticipated arrival on the free agent market.

Hubbach tweeted that Yeremiah Bell was not participating in Scott's attempted boycott:

Making the situation in the Jets' locker room even harder to believe, Scott eventually caved and began answering questions as he normally would following a game.

This is far from the first in-house incident that has occurred during Rex Ryan's tenure as the Jets' head coach -- in addition to the Daily News reports, the Jets endured multiple fights during training camp, despite Ryan calling for better discipline among his players.

Scott's outburst came after one of the Jets' best wins of the season, a victory that kept the team's dwindling playoff hopes alive. New York is now 4-6 and returns home to take on the Patriots on Thanksgiving.

Who knows what might happen with the Jets between now and then. One thing's for sure: This team, regardless of its record and performance, never ceases to be entertaining.
