NY Jets -- 12 Linemen Eat 48 Breakfasts in 1 Sitting

8/20/2010 8:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The NY Jets defense has an appetite for destruction ... they also have an appetite for pancakes ... and TMZ has learned twelve D-linemen dominated a NY buffet last weekend -- putting down 48 breakfasts in one sitting.

It all went down at Hairy Tony's restaurant in Cortland, NY -- located right near the Jets training camp -- when All-Pro nose tackle Kris Jenkins decided to take his boys to brunch after their morning practice.

Sources inside the restaurant tell us the guys took down "48 breakfasts" -- including, but not limited to:

-- 12 bananas foster pancakes
-- 3 steak and eggs
-- 4 omelets
-- 3 french toast
-- 3 orders of chicken wings
-- 1 waffle
-- hamburger
-- fries
-- fruit crepe
-- 4 extra sides of eggs
-- apple cinnamon pancakes
-- buttermilk pancakes
-- nachos

We're told the bill came out to $225 -- and Jenkins took care of the whole thing ... even leaving a $75 tip.

We asked Jenkins about the gut-busting gathering and he told us, "As a veteran, sometimes it is great to build a bond with fellow linemen through food. Hairy Tony's has a great brunch so I decided to treat the guys to show my appreciation for all they do".

Who's hungry?!

That's a lot of food. They need it for all that they work out. Have you ever seen anyone get bigger and stronger by not eating? Didn't think so.

There's nothing more annoying than people who are annoyed by comments posting a comment about how they're annoyed by the comments. If you're annoyed, just don't post a comment!

Oy.

"Pro Football Players Eat a Lot" is news like saying "Drug Addicts Like Drugs, New Study Claims" is news.

I imagine the breakfast plates were pretty small. A lot of these breakfast places only serve like 3 pancakes/french toast with 3 pieces of bacon or 2 pieces of sausage. I can easy see a 300-pound lineman eating 4 orders of that.

TMZ should never, ever cover sports. This is not sports, what happens on the field is sports. Of course, would never expect anyone affiliated with thsi garbage site to understand that.

To the person who made comment #3. You're complaining this isn't news? You're on TMZ.com genius....when and why the hell would there ever be news on TMZ.com? My god....
