The veteran clarified his statement on Wednesday.
"I wasn't trying to say that we've quit, that any of the players quit," he said. "I don't think any of us have quit in this (locker) room. But it seems like those above us, they've quit on this season. You can't do that. Players need to make a living, get stuff on tape, play for that next year. But it seems like that isn't important, that winning this year isn't a big deal to them anymore.
"Like they're already looking at 2015 and beyond. Maybe they felt that way earlier this year and stuff, but I don't know."
John Idzik won't win any popularity contests in New York, whether that's with the fan base or in the locker room.
