Why are the Jets worried about the Patriots instead of taking responsibility for the trip incident Sunday? ->?
Here is the latest Jet mess up-> FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- Tripgate isn't over for the New York Jets, who could be subject to sanctions by the NFL for using inactive players in an illegal wall and publicly accusing the New England Patriots of the same tactic. All of these matters are under review," league spokesman Greg Aiello said Thursday night in an e-mail to ESPNNewYork.com, responding to specific questions about the team's use of the wall and the Patriots-related remarks by special-teams coordinator Mike Westhoff The controversy stems from Sal Alosi, the Jets' strength and conditioning coach, tripping Miami Dolphins player Nolan Carroll in Sunday's game at the New Meadowlands Stadium. The Jets suspended Alosi for the remainder of the season without pay, but they increased the penalty to an indefinite suspension after determining Alosi instructed five inactive players to stand shoulder-to-shoulder along the sideline. The wall formation was designed to act as a deterrent to Carroll, the Dolphins' gunner on punt coverage. The NFL sent a letter to the 32 teams Thursday reminding them of the rules and restrictions for the bench area and sidelines. Ray Anderson, the league's executive vice president for football operations, emphasized the responsibilities placed on each team to appoint a "get-back coach" to ensure that players, coaches and other staff are in compliance with league rules. Both head coach Rex Ryan and Westhoff said they had no knowledge of the wall until they reviewed the tape, claiming Alosi acted alone. But Westhoff may have inflamed the matter Wednesday, telling Chicago sports radio station ESPN 1000's "Waddle and Silvy Show" that the Patriots also have used it. The league is checking into whether Westhoff violated a league rule by publicly calling out the Patriots. A 2008 league memo from commissioner Roger Goodell, printed in the San Francisco Chronicle and brought to light Thursday by ESPNBoston.com, warned every team that making false claims against other clubs could result in penalties http://sports.espn.go.com/new-york/nfl/news/story?id=5928044&campaign=rss&source=NFLHeadlines

I think they're worried about the Patriots cause they were tied for first in the AFC till 2 weeks ago when the Pats beat the Jets. The Jets are probably angry about having the conference lead stolen from them.

Because winning games involves the team. The tripping thing was one coach that was upset becasue they were losing so he did something dumb. By next season people with forget the tripbut if the Jets blow another season people will be upset for a long time.

maybe the Jets have been exposed this season. maybe they themselves doubt whether they can beat the Bears and even make the playoffs. The Chargers are surging.

He is still digesting the Patriots game ball he ate and is trying to make it look like he wasn't involved.
