3 NFL Players, Coaches and Personalities We're Absolutely Sick of Hearing from
Sometimes it can get to be too much.
I cannot listen to these guys anymore.
This irritating group is a mix of NFL players, a media member and a father of two star quarterbacks.
Can you guess who I'm referring to?
It shouldn't be too hard.
We've had our fill and we're all sick of hearing from them.
Let's take a look.
Anyone on or Associated with the Jets

It all starts with Rex Ryan.
While I understand his bravado and outspoken nature coupled with his defensive mind made him a hot head coaching commodity in the NFL, it's time to scale things back, Rex.
No more "guarantees" on the Super Bowl.
No more smack talking to opposing players.
As someone that covers the NFL, it's great to hear honest, straight-forward answers. But most of the time Ryan needs to think what is in the best interest of his team before he opens his mouth in a press conference.
It wasn't hard to figure the Jets were a total mess in the locker room before the season came to a close. And now that many of the players confirmed the dysfunction and turmoil, we've heard enough.
At least rookie quarterback Greg McElroy was man enough to tie his name to his quotes. What's up with players anonymously bashing Mark Sanchez and the rest of the team?
The most classy, closed-lipped team in the NFL?
The New England Patriots.
Not a bad team to emulate.
About a month ago, in reference to Andrew Luck and Peyton Manning being on the same Indianpolis Colts club, Archie Manning said he didn't "think it'd necessarily be great for either one". He finished off his quote by saying the following:
"I think Andrew's the type of mature player ... he can walk right in. I mean, these other three or four guys that are playing this year, [if] they can walk in and contribute, Andrew can, too."
Maybe that's true.
However, it's not Manning's decision what team Luck plays for and when he's inserted to a starting lineup.
Now, an Indianapolis Star column stated the following about Archie's current stance:
"The father of the Colts' quarterback also said 'without a doubt' that Manning and Andrew Luck could co-exist if Indianapolis chooses the Stanford quarterback in the NFL draft."
It's time for Archie to let Peyton talk for himself.
He's 35-years-old and has been in front of NFL media member's microphones and recorders for over a decade.
No more speaking on Eli's behalf, either.
Skip Bayless on Tim Tebow
I'll start by saying that I don't include myself in the overwhelming majority of fans, media members and others who despise Bayless' opinions on ESPN's First Take.
Does he continually take a contrarian view in what seems to be an attempt to spark debate and boost ratings?
Is he prodded to be that way by ESPN producers?
I feel the need to respect a guy with such a vast and successful career in sports journalism.
His views certainly mean more to me than Rob Parker's.
However, I don't overlook the fact that Bayless has become a better arguer than anything else.
The Tebow madness is being fueled by Bayless and his ESPN show.
I can't deal with hours of debating about the polarizing quarterback from every possible angle.
There are many other interesting subjects to discuss in the NFL, as well as in other professional and collegiate sports.
Smashing fists on to the table to make a point isn't necessary, either.
Enough is enough.
