Bart Scott’s Mom: If He Wasn’t My Son I Would Have Been Scared Too! And Other Post-game Gems

By now everyone has seen Bart Scott’s post game interview in which he gives some classic quotes (CAN’T WAIT!) and nearly scares the bejeezes out of Sal Paolantonio.

Well Scott’s mom reacted to his interview and said she hadn’t seen him that riled up since the 242lb line backer was in high school.

After Scott said the Jets represented themselves poorly in their 45-3 loss to New England in December, he continued: “We were ready to come back and show what kind of defense, what kind of team this was, what kind of character we have. We take a lot of slack. People gave us no chance. Like we barely made it in the playoffs. We’re a good football team.”

Adams said that Paolantonio looked uncomfortable at that point. She sympathized. “If that wasn’t my son, I would I have been scared of him, too,” she said.

Scott, who talks as much, if not more, trash as any N.F.L. player, declined to further comment Monday. His mother said one of his high school football coaches called her and said he had never seen Scott that mad. (Adams had; when Scott was in high school, but not since.) The calls started pouring in after that.

She said she told her friends, “That is the Madbacker right there!” The Madbacker is Scott’s nickname, a fitting one on Sunday.

“He’s a little sensitive to certain things,” Adams said.

Funny, he doesn’t seem sensitive at all!

After watching Scott’s interview for the 50 billionth time, I decided to recap some of my favorite post game moments from this season.

Who can forget when Randy Moss decided that going forward he would only be asking questions posed by…HIMSELF.

Little did we know that that would be one of the last times he’d be interviewed after a game this season.

Then there was the press conference that Eli Manning attended alone…

And finally, I can’t forget when Terrell Owens finally admitted, the Bengals are “just…just terrible.”

Any other favorite post game moments from this year?
