According to after the Jets win over the Patriots, Jets wide receiver David Clowney posted: "1 play in the 1st Half, 4 plays in the 2nd half . . . A bit disappointed about my playing time but very happy and satisfied about the win."

Head coach Rex Ryan apparently found out about the comments, and then decided to bench Clowney completely for Sunday's game against Tennessee.

One thing to point out was shortly after that Tweet he posted, "My team always comes first so I'ma just keep grinding . . . And we gonna keep winning."

I didn't think it was that bad, but they apparently really have to watch what they say. The Jets went on to beat the Titans without him 24-17.
