Though the NFL Films cameras are now gone, potential distractions remain at Jets practice.

A female reporter from TV Azteca was present Saturday. Multiple sources with knowledge of the situation tell us that the Jets responded to her presence by "acting like frat boys."

Bart Hubbuch of the New York Post made reference to the situation via Twitter on a couple of occasions. Hubbuch said that defensive backs coach Dennis Thurman was reportedly overthrowing players in drills so that they could "accidentally" run into her. Hubbuch also says that at one point linebacker Jason Taylor volunteered to take reps in the drill.

Hubbuch described the scene as "hilarious," but that sentiment wasn't universal. We're told that the reporter went into the locker room after practice, and that some of the players behaved like construction workers and/or prison inmates.

Nice avatar Stu. Is that the projected look after a day of chips, wings, & beer? Or did Weis "let himself go" after leaving Notre Dame?

Just another reflection of the h.c. Nice!

Howdy, Canuck. There were some folks talking about what the posters on here really look like. I thought I would be a smarty-pants and tell them this is a recent photo.

LMAO. Who in their right mind would post actual photos of themselves? With the crew that's on here I wouldn't give out my dog's name. LOL

Totally agree, this is not news, how were they expecting guys like that to act around a female, like perfect gentlemen? I don't think so.

how does this reporter know what prison inmates act like?

Or in Cromartie's case, the names of my kids for that matter.

Randy fellows.

Isn't this just a very weird situation? A female reporter, presumably attractive, was at a football practice and the men acted in an immature manner. In other news, bears do poop in the woods; Charlie Weis, despite his decided schematic advantages over all other college football coaches and God himself, is fat; and the Pope is a German wearing a funny hat. Come on, folks; this is newsworthy?

Only two threads? Come on, FN. How am to practice my smarta.s.s skills on only two threads?

Boy, I'm a Debbie Downer today. Sorry

You have to know their names to give them out and I highly doubt that Cromartie can cite their names or for that matter give us an actual total. Hell-he probably can't tell you the mother's names.

LMAO. Morning CF long time my friend. He probably just calls them all Daddy's little squirt.

Well, when you're raising an army like he is, I could see how they'd be hard to keep track of...

Sounds as if the New York Jets are talkin' football now.... Rex Ryan and his coaches have the Jets believing now with a little swagger...
Think Rex Ryan's Baltimore Raven Defense's had the same type of swagger As did Buddy Ryans Chicago Bears Defense.
Nothing New--Just a part of developing a winning attitude and being a winning football team

Humans have destroyed evolution within the species by this case in point. The dumber the genes, the more copies that are being made.

He probably uses that name for the kids he can remember, and for those he doesn't it's Daddy's little misfire.

Have you ever seen the movie Idiocracy? It's totally silly, but the writer makes a very good point.
