The clock should have stopped at 2:01. That is exactly the time when #39 (Allen) recovered the fumble and was touched down by a NE player. The official was 5 feet away from the play and could clearly see the recovery, and him being touched down by NE.
You don't think Wilson interfered? It was strange that it was called by the official down the field instead of the one closer to the players, but he did interfere.
Bottom line is, the Jets blew that game, not the officials. There is nothing to whine about when they had so many opportunities to win the game.
they started the clock late and the clock stopepd the 2nd we jumped on it, when does it ever stop instantly? we got screwed there.
The PI was 50/50, I wouldn't have been upset if the ref right there threw it and threw it right away but it was from across the field and thrown late. There were other times NE Dbs did more than that w/ no calls so I think that was a bad one.
The Jets had chances, i didn't blame the officials but it's hard enough to win in Foxboro when things are equal which they certainly were not late in that game. We still should have won but we got screwed.
The same applies here. You can give all the reasons you want. Jets still lost. Accept it and move on.
Forgive my spelling. This was sent from my phone.
isn't that what I wrote?
The clock starts when the player touches the ball. It should stop when the player recovered the ball and was down by contact. Get a stop watch out and try it yourself.
There were times when the Jets did things that were not called and were called on NE. Hill pushed off on one play with no call, but Lloyd got called for doing less later in the game. Just becasue the Hill push off was not called does not mean that the Lloyd push off should not have been called. Wilson interfered, and it should have been called. It doesn't matter to me if the flag is late or if it came from the guy further away from the play, as long as the right call is made.
The Jets screwed themselves, not the officials.
