Jets Players


January 7, 2024


Solomon Thomas, DL

(On playing in this weather)

“Oh yeah, that was a lot of fun. I mean you dream as kids growing up, those games growing up, by being to be able to be in the snow like that and it’s an awesome time. Obviously, it’s not ideal weather for traction, for being on your feet, and balance and everything but it is football weather.”


(On breaking the losing streak against the Patriots)

“It means a lot to this organization. It means a lot to the owners here and the fans here. So to get that streak done, it means a lot to the people and this community and this team of where it started. We’re all happy to get that done.”


(On the day Breece Hall had)

“Unbelievable, I mean to come back and I don’t think people understand coming back from an ACL, I came back from one in my career and it is extremely hard. To come back and have 178 rushing yards or whatever he had, and to get 1,000 yards for the season post-ACL with the struggles we have had on this team, unbelievable. I think people need to pay more attention to that and praise him for what he has done this year. I am extremely proud and so is this entire team.”


Sauce Gardner, CB

(On the celebration after the Tony Adams interception)

“That was a little thing on Twitter, the thing with the President and someone shaking hands. We tried to reinvent that, but you know the defensive line was already running off the field. We had some people who were running on the field and we had the numbers to do it but, they were just doing snow angels. AD [Ashtyn Davis] was really one of the only ones, but that is the most iconic one anyway, so at least we did that one.”


(On snapping the 15-game losing streak against the Patriots)

“It feels great and it’s a true blessing. You know with things like that, it’s the little things that matter.  That’s a part of history, if you ask me. It happened to end a 15-game losing streak on our end and that’s another blessing. I wouldn’t want to do it with any other guys or any other coaches, so it’s just a blessing to do that”


Michael Clemons, DL

(On dominating in the snow)

“It was a beautiful opportunity. I used to watch these games on television as a kid. To go out there and play in an environment like that, it really is a blessing. I didn’t get to make a snow angel! Never in my life [did I play in the snow] but it was a blessing for sure.”


(On the Jets)

“We have a group of fighters, it’s really a family over here. Our guys banded together, get out there and go to war every day and I am just blessed to be a part of it.”


(On beating the Patriots)

“A win is a win, and it always feels good to get a win.”


Jayln Holmes, DL

(On his sack)

“It was a team effort. Our end just flushed him my way and I just finished the job.”


(On playing in the snow)

“This is my first time since college. I played in the snow at Minnesota my freshman year. So this was my first time in the League. It was definitely fun, especially when they started throwing the ball a lot and you’re winning, and everybody is trying to get something. It was definitely fun.”


(On the play of the defense)

“We just played together as a defense and we played to win. We didn’t care about how the season went. We played as hard and fast as we could. We all had individual goals but we also had team goals and we just wanted to play hard and fast and just dominate. It starts at the top, you’ve got guys like Quinnen Williams, JFM [John Franklin-Myers], C.J. Mosley, they made good money and they easily could have gone, ‘I don’t want to play’ but we have those guys at the top and they treat every game like a Super Bowl and it is hard not to follow suit.”


Tony Adams, S

(On his interception)

“It was simple. I knew MC [Michael Carter] was going to hit the ball so I didn’t want to run up for it. I knew it was going to be a bounce to me. I looked at the ball the whole time and it just fell in my hands and that was it. It was the simplest thing. We got to make snow angels at the end. My snow angel was fire, the best snow angel the NFL has ever seen!”


(On the defense)

“We just dominated. We did what our coaches told us to do. We just dominated our one-on-ones. It’s that simple. Do what your coach tells you to do and dominate your one-on-one matchup and I think we did that today.”


(On if he’s ever played in the snow)

“Maybe a little at Illinois, but not like that. Today was really fun, but kind of bittersweet because some of these guys won’t be back next year. You build a bond with these guys. At the same time it’s sweet because we got to go out one last time and play as brothers and as a brotherhood.”
