Four days in the Florham Park Zoo

By Rich Cimini

Just in case you missed it, here's a recap of the Jets' soap opera from the last few days. This stuff is juicier than the storyline from ABC's "Revenge."

• Capt. Santonio Holmes sulked in the huddle. Wayne Hunter told him to get the f--- out. They nearly came to blows.

Brian Schottenheimer, in perhaps his final act with the Jets, benched Holmes. Rex Ryan didn't know what was going on.

• The Jets got eliminated.

• Holmes got eviscerated by LaDainian Tomlinson, who, in perhaps his final act with the Jets, assailed Capt. Holmes' character.

• Ryan said he didn't know what was going on.

• Ryan cried in front of the team.

• Ryan, doing his impersonation of the Soup Nazi, declared, "No more captains."

Bart Scott, in perhaps his final act with the Jets, cursed reporters and flipped the bird to a news photographer on his way out of the locker room.

• Details of the Florham Park Zoo came to light.

• Former Jets QB Boomer Esiason compared Mark Sanchez to a skittish chihuahua on the corner of a busy Manhattan intersection.

• Fourth-string QB Greg McElroy ripped the "corrupt" attitude in the locker room, saying there were too many players who didn't care about winning.

• What next, a tell-all by Tanner Purdum? A from-the-grave screed by Sal Alosi?
