Bart Scott Interview Video: Rant After Jets vs Patriots Game 2011
You have to hand it to Bart Scott: he is intense. In an interview worthy of Randy 'Macho Man' Savage, Bart Scott ripped into the New England Patriots after the Jets AFC divisional playoff win.
The Bart Scott post-game interview was an extended rant about about how the Jets had to deal all the haters and people who doubted their defense. He questioned why the Jets defense was being criticized when the Patriots defense was ranked 25th in the league and, in Scott's words, "couldn't stop a nose bleed."
""We know we were a much better team than we came up and represented ourselves," said Scott. "And we were pissed off."
"We were ready to come back and show off what kind of a defense, what kind of a team this was, what kind of character we have ... We take a lot of flack. People gave us no chance like we barely made the playoffs. We're a good football team."
"For all you nonbelievers," he said. "Disrespect us. Talk crap about the defense like we ain't the third-best defense in the league.
"All we hear is about (the Patriots') defense. They can't stop a nose bleed. Twenty-fifth in the league, and we the one that gets disrespected."
When asked about the Jets matchup with the Pittsburgh Steelers in the AFC Conference Final, Bart Scott shouted, "I can't wait."
Neither can we.
