It didn't seem like things could get much worse for the New York Jets following their season-ending loss to the Miami Dolphins on Sunday and the ensuing drama surrounding wideout Santonio Holmes' end-of-game benching.

But then the calendar turned to Monday.

In a locker room scene that appeared to boarder on the surreal, Jets players gathered their things and took out the frustration from a disappointing season on the local media.

The Star-Ledger reported that multiple players refused to talk to reporters -- including the normally chatty Darrelle Revis -- while Bart Scott yelled at a photographer.

According to ESPN New York, Scott also gave the photographer an obscene gesture and said, "Get that out of my (expletive) face."

Newsday reported Sunday that it's likely the Jets will cut ties with Scott this offseason. Scott made just 66 tackles, his lowest total since he with the Baltimore Ravens in 2004.

"All I know is I got a guaranteed contract for $4 million," Scott said when asked about his future with the team.

Holmes, who Jets coach Rex Ryan named a team captain before the start of the season, also did not speak to reporters Monday. The Star-Ledger reported that Holmes was escorted out of the locker room by public relations staff.

Cornerback Antonio Cromartie entered the fray with a dig against the Jets' offense. When asked if there was sufficient effort on Sunday, Cromartie told the New York Post, “Maybe on one side of the ball.”

All of this transpired following Ryan's tearful end-of-year speech to his team, during which he reportedly pleaded with his players to be a team.

"He was crying because he loves us," Jets guard Matt Slauson said, via ESPN New York.
