According to ESPN blogger, Tim Graham. Jeff Ireland is sick of the distractions of this argument.
"It's about playing football, that's what I know," Ireland said of the Ryan-Crowder debate. "It's about playing football."
Ireland knows what's up. I'm all for the trash talking of Channing Crowder, but this organization takes no crap from its players. Though it seems like this argument is all in good fun for our starting middle linebacker, it is clear that the front office wants no distractions on this football team whatsoever.
When asked whether the club has spoken to Crowder about not making a national scene, Ireland replied "That's a clubhouse thing. I'll deal with that myself."
Im glad that the front office is keeping an eye on the attention the media may be giving us. This is what makes this team different than the Jets. We'll win a Super Bowl because the front office knows how to handle players. The Jets will be in a rut for the next year and a half or so because their head coach is an obese clown. It'll be interesting to see how the rest of this plays out.
