The New York Jets have fallen so far outside of functional that calling their locker room dysfunctional doesn't begin to define what ails this team.
The Jets are a mess, but they aren't the only team with locker room troubles.
We'll take a look at the five most turbulent locker rooms in this feature—not a distinction teams aimed for when the season began a few months ago.
The Bears have a "crankapotamus" (a word my wife and I use when our toddler is acting up) for a quarterback—a guy who doesn't understand that body language does make a difference or how to communicate frustration with respect.
Early in the season, he got in the face of J'Marcus Webb and then shoved him after being sacked by Clay Matthews a few more times than he liked.
That didn't sit well with cornerback D.J. Moore. Via Michael C. Wright of ESPNChicago.com, Moore said:
Cutler "is what he is" and "he's always been that way so I don't expect him to change. What did he do? Did he shove the guy? I think so. I don't think you can act like that, though, to make it seem like it's just my fault or whatnot.
Furthermore, the interactions throughout the year between Cutler and offensive coordinator Mike Tice have not been pretty at times.
After starting out this season with a 7-1 record, it was easy to overlook these problems, but now that the going has gotten tough, it'll be interesting to see what happens down the home stretch.
The 2012 season hasn't been kind to the Tennessee Titans or their fans.
After finishing the 2011 campaign with a 9-7 record and just missing the playoffs, the sky was supposed to be the limit for this young team.
Jake Locker was supposed to be ready to take the next step, and Chris Johnson was going to have a monster year behind him.
That didn't happen.
Not only that, but when the going was tough for Johnson early, he pointed the finger at his offensive line, via ESPN.com's Paul Kuharsky:
I wouldn't sit here and say I'm to blame. I wouldn't think so, but I'm not the guy to sit here and be the guy that points fingers and things like that. It's just a situation where I'm going to be only as good as my line's going to be. So we've got to work together and get better together.
That's not contradictory, right?
With a record of 4-9 through 13 games, this team is due for some major changes in 2013.
The Andy Reid era in Philadelphia is inevitably coming to an end.
Any time you have a situation like this when a veteran team is about to be torn asunder and rebuilt from the ground up, it's going to create chaos in the locker room.
Furthermore, the way the Eagles cut Jason Babin and shelved Michael Vick can't sit well with some of the veterans—players who know they might be next on the chopping block.
And the coup de grâce for this team was when Vick suggested that the Eagles were using his concussion as a convenient excuse (h/t Ryan Beckler) to keep playing their rookie, Nick Foles.
Change is never easy, and this team is going through the ringer right now.
Winning in the NFL is founded upon discipline and teamwork.
It's safe to say the Detroit Lions have struggled in these two areas in 2012.
Titus Young has been a canker all year, first fighting with teammate Louis Delmas last May and then purposefully running the wrong routes and lining up in the wrong spots against the Green Bay Packers in Week 11.
Ndamukong Suh continues to give credence to the notion that he's a dirty player, as his latest kick to the groin of Matt Schaub may or may not have been intentional.
The biggest issue for the Lions, though, is that this team hasn't been winning despite the overwhelming talent it has on both sides of the ball. With a record of 4-9 and a current five-game losing streak, the Lions are on the verge of a total collapse.
Of all the teams on this list, none can match the chaos of the New York Jets.
This locker room has been cancerous for a couple of years now, and things are getting exponentially worse by the day, it seems.
Rex Ryan has cultivated a culture of brash, irresponsible behavior. He lets players say whatever's on their minds—a strategy that continues to bite him in the behind.
I've been around some locker rooms and quarterback-receiver situations and what-not, but it was as bad as I've been around. There was nothing that the players could do. So when it gets to that point, there are certain changes that need to happen. Can it be fixed? I think absolutely it can be. But they're going to have to make some tough decisions.
Then, the Jets brought in Tim Tebow just to spice things up a bit. We all know how that worked out.
Now, Braylon Edwards has been brought back into the fold—the same man who called the team's decision-makers "idiots" a week before being brought on.
Let chaos reign.
