Offensive line coach Dave DeGuglielmo isn't the only one who has an issue with members of the media.

In the wake of the now infamous "butt fumble" and "RibGate," Calvin Pace's comments to Arizona writers during a Wednesday conference call got lost in the shuffle. (My apologies.)

The Jets veteran linebacker -- who was drafted 18th overall by the Cardinals in 2003 -- said during his time out West he never had to worry about certain reporters "just making up random stuff and blowing a lot of stuff out of proportion that really is nothing" during his time in Arizona.

Pace did clarify that he didn't feel that way about every member of the New York media.

"I'm not saying it's all the reporters up here, but its two or three people who come into the building, and their whole goal is to try to start controversy," he said. "That's probably the most hassle that I have to deal with being here. But, it's part of the territory. You've just got to go out and be professional, and go out and try to win games.”
