Best to handle internally or go public?

After the Jets’ upset win over Green Bay on Sunday, a negative angle became one of the top stories.

ESPN’s Rich Cimini tweeted: “Of all the eye-popping stats/factoids today, this one is hard to understand: Elijah Moore: 0 targets. #Jets.”

The Jets, a big underdog, won 27-10 at Lambeau Field, so some might argue that a stat like that didn’t matter much.

But Moore, 22, a very prideful young man, decided to respond on Twitter to defend his honor:

“If I say what I really wanna say, I’ll be the selfish guy…we winning,” Moore tweeted in response to Cimini. “Grateful! Huge blessing! All I ever wanted. Butter sweet for me, but I’ll be solid. So I’ll just stay quiet. Just know I don’t understand either.”

Robert Saleh was asked about this tweet on Monday:

“He’s fine. He’s a competitive young man,” Saleh said. “He wants to contribute. I’ve got no problem with Elijah. He’s one of our high-character individuals.”

If a player tweeted this kind of thing in New England, they might be inactive for the next game.

Not saying that Saleh should make Moore inactive. Bill Belichick is old-school. Players have changed. Saleh is very good at connecting with the new generation of players. The Jets play very hard for Saleh.

However, some might argue it would have been best for the player to voice his concerns about his role privately with his coaches, not on Twitter.

But some would argue it’s fine to go public with this. It depends on what your worldview is in this ever-changing world.
