Did the Jets Beat the Pats due to an Atrocious call?

    I think not. Patriot fans can fixate all they want on the pushing call, but they have only themselves to blame for not being able to put Jets away after building a 21-10 lead. The game changed when Tom Terrific threw a pick 6 to Antonio Allen who returned it for 23 yards, and yes it was the touchdown that changed the momentum of the game.

    But lets get back to the "atrocious" call.  It is interesting to look at how the Pats used the same play last week when they beat the Saints. The play against the Saints came with 2:24 left and Garrett Hartley attempting a 39-yard field goal. Jones and Svitek were lined up on the right side of the defense, and Jones ran behind Svitek, giving him a shove into the line. No penalty was called on that play. But if it the officials had called a penalty, the Saints could have extended the drive and possibly run out the clock so the Patriots wouldn't have had a chance to win the game late.

    The rule is on the books and there was going to be a first time at some point.  Could it be a coincidence that Rex's brother Ryan (Saints defensive coach) alerted his brother to watch that particular part of last weeks film.

    For sure Rex Ryan alerted the refs to watch for this one. And just like against the Saints the Pats had Svitek and Jones (this time they lined up on the opposite side) run a nearly an identical play.

    The rule, adopted for 2013 and codified at Rule 9, Section 1, Article 3, subsection (b)(2), states that the defensive team on a kick from scrimmage “cannot push teammates on the line of scrimmage into the offensive formation.”   It was explained during visits to every team before the season, any pushing of players on the line of scrimmage — including pushing from other players on the line of scrimmage — constitutes a violation.

    Belichick admitted Monday his staff did not understand the new rule before Sunday. Yeah right, Belicheck touted as one of the greatest coaches in the league didnt understand a rule.

    If you ask me that is what is atrocious.

    Hey WG, I saw your tweets yesterday afternoon while the game was on. HA.  You sure love the game, don't you?  TB Bucs are looking so sad this year, I can't watch anymore.   I don't think the coach has much time left in Tampa.

    I hope someone comes along and can add to your thread.  I have not a clue what you're talking about.  smile

      rebekahELLE - thank you for that. I so needed a little reason to giggle tonight.

        I forget you are in Tampa Bay. My very very very most favorite player now plays for the Bucs. All you need to know is that Revis is on your team. He used to be a Jet but due to financial bs he was traded. Some say he is the best safety in the NFL. Sad when a great player  and a team opt to part company due to dollars. KInda like last night, it was sad to see Peyton Manning (Denver Brocos) lose in a stadium that used to be his home (Indianapolis Colts)

      Anyway glad you see my tweets on sundayfunday!! I must say its such a fun way to watch a game. Tune in tonight as my 0-6 Giants play the Vikings and try to get their first win! Whats really funny is how different the 2 NY fan bases are on Twitter. Just watch fans of the Jets trash talk the Giants tonight. Me, I root for them both. Some say Im a dysfunctional fan its impossible to be a fan of both teams.

      Whatever it is I have such a good time watching it. And I thank you again for the smile tonight!
