Jets Coach Trips Dolphins Player
We know that the New York Jets are a team that likes to be loud and proud about their exploits. They’re a team with a lot of swagger even when things are not going well, which they haven’t been of late. Less than a week after losing 45-3 to the New England Patriots on Monday Night football, Rex Ryan’s bunch lost 10-6 to the Miami Dolphins, and did so in a much more embarrassing fashion.
Dolphins cornerback Nolan Carroll was tripped by the New York Jets’ strength and conditioning coach on the sideline while covering a punt in the third quarter of Miami’s 10-6 victory Sunday.
Sal Alosi confessed later that he interfered with Carroll.
“I made a mistake that showed a total lapse in judgment. My conduct was inexcusable and unsportsmanlike and does not reflect what this organization stands for.”
Carroll was surprisingly not angry about the incident.
“We got a W. That’s not my problem. That’s the Jets’ problem. We just move on. I felt contact, but I’ve got to watch film. I can’t comment on it right now.”
