LOL. I don't think the Jets vanilla offense had anything to do with Carolina's dirty play. And yes, I think they crossed the line. And adding insult to injury, none of the plays were flagged.

If he wasn't hurt no one would have made a single comment on the hit.
If he wasn't a favorite here no one would have said much.
When the owners and the commish try to rid the NFL of meaningless injuries like this we get thread after thread about the pussification of the NFL.
That's why I mentioned #24's attempt to take Sanchez' head off later on as evidence that he had intent and was out there to hurt someone.

Of course, I always thought McDermott's defenses with the Eagles were a little cheap-shot prone.
Didn't Wilkerson elbow Cam Newton when he was on the ground? I believe these type of actions occur quiet often and are ignored by the referees.

That pick in the endzone that almost knocked Bush out was fine worthy, no need for that crap in pre-season.
