When EX-PATRIOT traitor Ty Law KNOWINGLY drew an illegal contact penalty to nullify his own team's interception, I thought it might just be a coincidence.
When Reggie "Who would suspect the punter?" Hodges mishandled the extra-point attempt, I became a bit suspicious.
But when Brett Favre's pass went RIGHT THROUGH the arms of whatever cheater receiver it was that oh-so-innocently failed to catch the pass IN THE ENDZONE, it was CLEARLY OBVIOUS that the FIX was in.
It took an entire league's collusion (from the first week when EX-JETS head coach Herm Edwards called the hit on Tom Brady from the Kansas City sideline, to the final mockery of patriot-hater commissioner Goodell's schedule shifting shenanigans) to take down the world's pride of sportsmanship and competition. I hope you're all happy.
If there's any silver lining, that should be Coach Mangini's last game ever in the NFL.
The one problem with these conspiracy theories is that this is same sort of stuff that the Jets have been doing for most of the season, and especially over the last month. If the Jets really were trying to purposely lose the game, they probably would've bumbled their way into winning it.
This is a Jets team that somehow managed to lose to Oak, SF, and Sea, and came very close to losing to KC. They also got blown out by SD early in the year when Chargers weren't playing very well - and they lost to Den which was at the beginning of a season-ending swoon. They won a game vs Buf when the Bills handed them a TD in the last minute of the game.
The Jets are probably glad they didn't have the Lions on their schedule.
