You didn't think Bart Scott would keep his mouth shut, did you?

The New York Jets outspoken linebacker ripped Detroit Lions coach Jim Schwartz, who responded with "consider the source" when told Monday that Scott had called the Lions the dirtiest team in the league.

“Listen, I don’t have to play Detroit for another four years,” Scott said Wednesday. “I couldn’t care less what that man has to say. Don’t even exist to me anymore. Does it really matter? I don’t have to see him ever again. Do I have to see him at the Super Bowl? Playoffs? Probably not …. In the parking lot?”

And there was this from Scott: “We’re playing the Browns. I’m not going to oblige (Schwartz). He’ll be watching TV in January.”

SLAUSON WILL BE OK: LG Matt Slauson (knee), hurt on the final offensive play of Sunday's game, didn't practice Wednesday. But he expects to practice Thursday and vowed to be ready for the game. It's rare for a Jets offensive lineman to miss a game.

"I don't plan on being the first," Slauson said. "I'm not about to mess that up."

ICE MAN: QB Mark Sanchez was wearing an ice pack on his throwing shoulder as he fielded questions from the media in front of his locker. It was the first time in a long time that he had been spotted with ice on his shoulder. Sanchez claimed there was no injury, and that he routinely ices his shoulder, usually in the trainer's room.
