    The clock needed lubrication and thats why it froze. The grounds keepers have since applied some oil to
    old big ben and shes running fine now. Problem solved!

You would know the clock didn't freeze at 2:01 if you watched the following play. The clock immediately changed to 2:00 meaning that 9-tenths ran off of 2:01.

    On a side note; good to see you on the board. Hope you made it through Sandy without any major damage.
    I've seen the play a million times and I have never seen a clock stop faster than on that play. Again, in the Giant game Witten went OOB at 7 secs clearly but the clock went to 6 secs after he was out, we jump on the ball at 2:01 roll over and the clock stops at 2:01.

    The clock should not have gone to 0:06 since Witten was out of bounds after the catch at 0:07. The Giant fans that are whining that too much time passed are wrong. Just because an extra second ran off (that should not have) in the Giants game, does not mean that an extra second should run off (that should not) in the Jets game. The Jets jump on the ball at the end of 2:02, and the clock stopped at the very end of 2:01. (2:01.1) A full second passed after the Jets touched the ball when the clock was actually stopped.

    an extra second always runs off, sometimes more than 1. It's the lag btw the whistle blowing and the human pressing the stop button. The jets jumped on the ball at 2:01 and rolled over and miraculously it stopped the moment we touched the ball. The fastest clock stoppage in NFL history.

    Clearly you've reviewed every clock stoppage in NFL history....
    Angry Deniers. A bunch of agenda-driven whiny clowns whose sole mission is to deny anything good that Tannehill has done and deny anything bad that the "gods of quarterbacks" have done.

    show me an example of a quicker clock stoppage? heck when NE won their first SB I think 4 seconds ran off the clock after the FG went through.

    ?? You're the one who made the ridiculous claim. Review every clock stoppage in the history of the NFL and get back to me.

    find me one where the clock stops the second a player touches a ball to recover a fumble. You know the clock stopped too quickly but again your hatred of my team clouds your judgement. It's sad adults act like this.

    Sorry, but I don't agree. Did the Jets file a complaint? Sure seems like they would if it were a historic event like you claim......

    what would a complaint do? it was obvious to anyone watching they got screwed by the clock. AGAIN, they still should have won. NE took advantage like good teams do but that extra second was huge as it meant playing w/ 1 TO vs. zero TOs on that game tying drive.
