    Why does everyone try to "fake spike" the Jets?

    Does this happen more often than I think it does? We painfully remember Marino back in the mid-90's victimizing us, but I think I've seen it attempted twice on us this year (Brady, Roethlisberger).

    What gives?

    Brady tried the fake spike against miami, not us.

    Ahh, you are absolutely right! I chalk up my bad memory to post victory traumatic shock syndrome.

    But still, is this happening more often now or just a weird coincidence that we're seeing several teams attempting this in 2010?

    Yeah, they do it to us every 16 years.

    BTW, Pennington executed a great fake spike against Buffalo in 2007 that put the Jets in FG range near the end of the first half. Unfortunately, Nugent missed the FG and the Jets went on to lose.

    I think it's rarely successful so you don't see it on highlight reels or anything and you don't remember it when it happens in games between teams we don't know.

    Perhaps Dan Marino has been getting in the ear of some people whining about how he "victimized" the Jets with that play and how effective it could be since it is a play rarely run.



    He's a Jackass.

    Credit the two Jets Defenders for not being fooled and staying with Wallace there.

    The Marino fake spike was actually Bernie Kosar's idea and was probably one of the worst games in Jets history considering the tailspin the team went into afterwards resulting in the hiring of Rich Kotite.

    If that play is going to work on anyone after that it isn't the Jets.

    Because we're the only jackwagons who would fall for something like that.

    When something works, people stick with it.
