Give me a break. JM didn't throw anyone under the bus, do you even know what that means? In the context of sports, throwing someone under the bus is when you blame and individual for a specific team failure. He didn't blame them for anything in particular, he just said they needed to play better, like the rest of the team.

As far as them not being happy (Cole, Price and the rest of the team), thats the whole point. JM knows this and hopes that it motivates them to prove him wrong. These guys aren't children, they can take the criticism and turn it into motivation. And if they can't, then there is something wrong with their attitudes. Nothing wrong with what he said IMO, it is a stategy used by good coaches all the time.
