I dont get why the Jets were declining. Other than the obvious "Its the Jets" answer.

 

I really wish Belichek had kept committing penalties. I wonder how many times it would have taken Gase to understand what was happening. I found it amusing.

Why did those idiots decline the penalties?  If they accepted them I am assuming the clock would have stopped?  Not that it matters when you are getting blown out 33-0

One word: Gase

My question is how do you fix the rules.  If you change the rule so that the clock stops for penalties, it allows the losing team to save time by deliberately committing a penalty. 40 seconds could easily be more valuable than the 5 yard cost of a false start penalty to a team that is three points behind with no timeouts and 45 seconds on the game clock.  Could you actually write the rule so the clock only stops for penalties if the team committing the penalty is ahead?

You really cannot get away with that. If the Referee deems that you are intentionally and repeatedly delaying the game they can absolutely hit you with an Unsportsmanlike Conduct penalty and attribute it to the bench. End of controversy.

Bellichick is a smart guy operating in a league full of dolts.  Its like if you went back to 8th grade as an adult. You would be a school all star!

So genius...he used it in a game he was winning 33-0.  And I guess he made Gase decline the penalties.

 my guess is that it happened against belichick in a previous game that went unnoticed by most. he didnt like that.

 

so he just wanted to expose the flaw in the rule...seeing as he did it at a time that was of little value

Go through these threads, read some of them, and look me in the eye and say with a straight face what you state above.  🤨😒😠

I also don’t think BB’s thought there was to run out the clock. My guess is Gase declines, and BB was like “wait, what? You need the clock, I need the 5 yards. Let’s try this again Adam” then facepalm laughter ensued. 

 

That was the speculation I heard - Bill wanted the extra space for his punter, and didn't expect Gase to decline.

 

But maybe Gase didn't "need the clock" - maybe at that point he would have been happy if Belicheck could have just run the clock down to 0

Belicheat does it again! This time with a loophole, takes 1 min 22 sec off of the clock.

 

Nobody goes through the rulebook quite like him. I'm surprised he wasted it against the jests.

for almost 50 years I have wondered why the clock starts on a delay of game call

 

especially if it was intentional to take it

In the end the fix seems so simple - anytime the flag is thrown the clock stops (if it was running) and the team accepting or declining the penalty has on option to either leave it stopped or have the refs wind the clock with an automatic 10 second run off (or longer up to 30 seconds if you want) for the delay.

 

That way the Jets while behind - they can still decline the penalty, but have the clock stop.

 

Conversely - if the Jets were ahead and there was a false start (like the second Pats penalty) - the Jets could accept or decline the penalty, but they could choose to wind the clock and there would be a 10 second (or more) run off as a penalty.  
 

@papazoid - I agree - I think this happened to Belichek before and he wanted to expose it and use it to embarrass someone in the AFC east and was happy to do it to the Jets and Gase/Williams.

Proving yet again who is the smartest guy in the room.

Simple solution to this: Make it an unsportsmanlike like penalty and if it repeats throw the coach out of the game.

Rules are vague enough they probably could do it with current rules.

:censored: Belicheat

:censored: Brady

 

 

if the D Bag was so worried about playing time   .............    Why was Brady playing in the 4th Why even int he 3rd QTR? 

 

The commentators inferred that Brady was overriding any decisions to put in backups. He wanted starters getting the reps.

 

Then Michel got injured.

I said to my friends last night that the Jets should have taken cheap shots at Brady since he was still in the game.

Gregg Williams should be fired for not getting his boys to do what he was brought in to do.

Because they wanted the game to end as fast as possible.

I've been waiting for a team to snap and do that for more than a decade. When the DBAG BB left Brady in the game when they crushed the Bills on Sunday night football during the Jauron era and they kept going for two deep in the 4th Q I was screaming for old Dick to call an all out blitz and kill Brady but all I got was Jaurons 1000 yard stare.

BB was a fool to waste any advantage like that on the NYJs.

No one knows the rules like Bill Belichick.  It's part of what makes him the GOAT.

There's no excuse for all teams in the NFL not operating on the same level, but they don't.


Which is where BB finds and gains a genuine advantage.

Heard this week he sits in coach and gets first class seats for star players and performers of the week

 

This is HUGE for team morale and loyalty, almost all coaches take first class for themself and leave players in coach

Not to be outdone, it is rumoured that owner Kraft gives those high performing individuals gift certificates to the spa...
