All 32 teams do it every week.

Even the Saints.

Re: Jet's warn officials Pats had cheated

We really need to get an official clarification from the NFL about this rule, if it truly only applies to second level defenders, make it clear to ALL that is the case and eliminate/minimize confusion going forward.

Even if this is the intention of the rules, 15 yards seems like way too many yards. Maybe 5 and a first, but 15 seems retarded.

If Graham and Meachem had caught the balls that slipped off their jerseys, we would not have been robbed of anything.

The ruling came out after the annual Competition Committee meeting and all teams knew about it. If Special Teams coaches didn't do their job and Coach the the new rules that is their fault.

The patriots KNEW this and Belichick has admitted it.

My guess is it was thought of as one of those rules no one was going to enforce... until it was enforced...

Re: Jet's warn officials Pats had cheated

One of the biggest exploits of this game is exploiting the refs.

How? Some crews wont call certain things, others will, and you can pretty much adjust your game plan around it.

The Patriots cheating goes back before Bellichek ever came into the picture, someone once said to me that right when you walk into the Patriots HOF, you see the snowplow used to clear the field to kick a game winning FG, I think this was back in the 70s or 80s, but it pretty much summed up what the Patriots organization was about.

From what I understand the rule was revised this year. It used to be from the second tier. But they changed it to make it illegal to push no matter where you line up.
