    Either way, I don't fault him.

    I don't fault him either, but if he had taken the offer that was made to him before he was injured.....

    I don’t fault Steve Smith. He had to take what he could get when he could get it. I wish him the best.

    Yeah, he should’ve taken that offer but he gambled and he lost. However, it worked out to our benefit that he didn’t take the offer.

    But it was not always that way. Plax, Tiki, and Shockey were some of the most selfish people, but all predated TC. SS12 didn't predate TC, but he flipped straight traitor on us going to Philly even though we had given him an offer, and called Reese a liar in public. No love there. But I look at guys more recently... Manningham, Jacobs, and now the three that were released now, and all of them have nothing but good things to say about the Giants. Jacobs said after his, uhh, experience at the hands of Jim Harbaugh that he would only ever play for the Giants (which means it's likely he's going to retire now). It's a far cry from the hate that other former Giants used to give...
    It's because they are leaving here with some hardware on there finger. They are greatful that they were here to win a championship. Of coarse guys leaving the Jets are gonna have bad things to say. They are a circus and have been mostly unsuccessful.

    Thank God. I'll save classiness for hipsters and wannabe politicians.

    Tiki might be the only exception. It was disappointing what he said about teammates and coaches.
