A: He probably owes Rasheed Wallace royalties. The New York Post’s Bart Hubbach on Scott’s behavior after the Jets’ defeat of St. Louis earlier today.

The Gang Green linebacker ordered every Jets defensive player to say nothing but “both teams played hard” to reporters, threatening anyone that don’t obey his wishes. Scott’s anger clearly stems from a report this week that published anonymous Jets players ripping Tim Tebow.

Safety Yeremiah Bell refused to participate in the boycott and Scott yelled at Bryan Thomas for breaking it, calling him “a [expletive] sellout.” Bell told Scott: “Stop it. Just stop.”

Scott ended up speaking calmly and openly to the media after his attempts fell flat.
