Why any Jet is civil with this Dick, I don't get.
Because that is his job to drive interest, even when there is nothing compelling to report. What do you think his boss will say, if he tells them there is no story today with the jets?
Jet players go to the media to get their side of the story out, and to have a "friend" if they need one in the future.
I know jet fans hate this but i am going to do it anyway. This is one area where the patriots shine, They just defer media questions to the coach. This is also why the media hates Belichick, they have to give him props cause he wins. But they hate the fact that he understands that they are not part of the game and are more interested in a story than having a winning team.
