    Giants' Steve Weatherford Rips Ex Jets' Assistant Mike Westhoff

    http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com...thoff/related/

    Excerpt: "Giants punter Steve Weatherford is not done ripping his former Jets special teams coordinator, Mike Westhoff.

    Weatherford has said in the past that he didn’t like playing for Westhoff, and in an interview with the Star-Ledger, Weatherford answered a question about comparing the Giants and Jets by explaining that Westhoff was the one problem he had when he played for New York’s other team.


    It’s been a dream come true,” Weatherford said of playing for the Giants.

    “I enjoyed playing for Rex Ryan but the special teams coach [Mike Westhoff] was very difficult to get along with both on and off the field.

    Here, the Giants have treated me great since the moment I walked in here. I show up early and leave late and give everything I have. I think the Giants have an appreciation for that. I absolutely love being here. I’d play for free.” Read more...

    Westhoff took an unkind shot at Weatherford when he signed with the Giants. Payback is a *****

    he made fun of/criticized his directional punting and down inside the 20. i forget the exact remark but it was def. an insult.

    and weatherford is prob as good a replacement for feagles as there is in the league. both have that passion and desire to win that they display on their sleeves, which is rare for punters/kickers...weatherford gets amped lol

    .........thanks for this RF. Again, while most would simply say we wish him the best and chose to move in a different direction, Westhoff in typical Jets coaching fashion had to take the cheap shot when the cheap shot wasn't necessary or called for.
    No one remembers who came in second.

    Westhoff is part of that Jets culture that takes shots at former players and even current players through unnamed sources. How tough would it have been for Westhoff to say "we wish Steve all the best and thank him for his contributions to the Jets during his time here?" That is what just about every coach and team would say about a guy they chose not to re-sign. Instead Westhoff says (my paraphrase) he didn't have what it takes to be a Jet and was particularly poor in big moments. What an incredibly unclassy guy he is. He sure did have him some swagger though (like all of Rex' entourage).
