"Bunch of smoke, man," Boley said. "That's why he's an ex-teammate, man. It's one thing if you leave a team, you go somewhere else, if you didn't like it there, keep it to yourself. There's no point in trying to bad-mouth another team just because they let you go."
Boley -- who generated headlines Monday night for whipping a football into the face of an unsuspecting video intern on a fumble return for a touchdown -- went on: "I don't think I've ever had a coach who ever said anything remotely close to that."
Boley's claims aside, Fewell's enigmatic nondenial Thursday did little to extinguish the matter, telling The Post: "I can't say I've ever done that and I can't say I haven't done that."
We see little that's been accomplished via the mudslinging -- beyond tedium. Feigning injury to stall the no-huddle remains a part of the game, nearly impossible to police under the league's current rules. Until the trend becomes readily punishable, the truth remains veiled behind a haze of white noise and misdirection.
