Have you "observed" that the Patriots do the same kind of crap? May I refresh your memory back to 2003 at RCA dome in Indianapolis when several Patriots players faked injuries to stop the Colts drive in the 4th? The most blatant one was linebacker Willie McGinnis who faked an injury and was right back up a few minutes later.

Quit whining... don't be a sore loser, it's easy to be a good sport when you win but true class is being a good sport when you lose!

Poor coaching and some dropped passes cost the Patriots the game. Brady also froze up in the 4th which also hurt them. And what was with Belichick? He wore that weird hoody and looked like Emperor Palpatine right down to the pasty complexion and scowling face. Why the hood? Getting some extra "unofficial" advice and info from some source and had to hide it? I wouldn't put it past him.

seriously, zero bias here...just watched the game! but, i have no issue with the fact that it may happen all the time...i only took notice last night during that game, and i remember the announcers mentioning something as well.

You hush! Not a Jets fan, just had to address your <mod cut-personal attack>post.

C'mon Man ! ! ! All the markings of 'sour grapes', as you wrote a separate post on this same topic.

Patriots lost, Jets took them down, looks like big mouth sexy Rexy is walking the talk and you can't handle it
