    "It's borderline illegal because sometimes the guys aren't always set when they snap the ball"

    Sensationalist headline - reading the entirety of what he said, it wasn't that bad.

    Pats are going to go all-out trying to set as many tempo records as possible in this game. It's going to get ugly.

    Goodell allowed the story to be planted in the NY press...so that when the refs call the Patriots 10 or 15 times during the game giving his Jets the chance to sub, he can hide behind the officials...again...he should have immediately come out and lambasted Pace and the Jets for making false statements that give the league a black mark.....of course, having seen the joke excuse he came up with to NOT sanction the Jets or Ryan for REAL CHEATING(the Alosi scumbag incident), it's no wonder THIS is being allowed and actually SANCTIONED AND PROMOTED by Goodell through his ESPN mouthpieces.

    Joker mate, your obsession with Goodell is unhealthy!

    The guy is a pathetic excuse for a commissioner but you need to try get over it a little :D

    Pace also mentions how he wishes the Jets would do it too. I think he means expanding on their existing one-word plays like "Interception" and "Fumble" and "Groundball."

    Well, if it's "illegal," I guess it's not "borderline."

    Couldn't agree more. Anything to paint the Pats in bad light. Even better when it comes from that green garbage.

    I expect the Rats to use the same tactic they did in the 2010 playoff games vs the Pats, where the defense had a rash of phantom injuries to their defenders.

    These injuries are characterized by the game having to stop while the injured player is helped to his feet, followed by a slow laborious shuffle off the field, and then on the sidelines experiences a miraculous recovery so that the player only misses one play. You'll even notice big smiles on the Rats' players faces as they recognize that their "recovery" was truly miraculous.

    The OL has to be set before we snap the ball. Set doesn't mean your motion is paused. It means set. We're pushing the envelope on that at times. Keep doing it until called. I would like to see us hurry up to the line and then backoff at times. We can pass better when we do it like that. You really have to run the ball in our hurry up. I think teams might see that and be better prepared. Bring the safety down and put 8 in the box

    Eh, it's cheap, but it's smart. If you're overmatched, you take any break that you can possibly get, collect the troops, and go back at it. Turns out that it worked for the Jets in 2010.

    Could Pace please explain to us the rule that the offense must wait until the defense is set to snap the ball?

    Agreed, but wasn't there a memo send out about this as well (faking injuries). Granted, they can't do much about it during he game (unless it's completely obvious and cramps would be the easiest to fake), but afterwards, there could be repurcussions.

    I have to wonder if this has become a point of emphasis for the league because somebody pulled a Polian and complained about it. The Pats were called for it once and Dallas 3 times over the last weekend and it's really not call very often in general. I wonder if we'll see a lot more illegal shift two men in motion without coming to a complete stop penalties going forward. It's possible the calls over the weekend and these comments are unrelated and an anomaly but I find that a little odd nonetheless.

    It would be an unusual move for the league to try to limit the offense in any way since the slant is definitely in this direction but if it is the case it wouldn't be a surprise for the Jets to try and plant the seed early. In a way thanks for giving us the heads up so we can focus on it in practice.

    I absolutely agree, and it IS smart to push the envelope to your team's advantage.

    While this is true, it is more of a dig at the Rats' and their fans' hypocrisy when they like to bring up Spygate or other perceived Pats' wrongdoings.

    The "Once a cheater always a cheater" line can be seen often on Rats boards, yet they are really good a "finding the specks in the Pats' eyes while ignoring the beams in theirs".

    As you said, faked cramps are going to be extremely hard to prove.

    The funniest thing about that is the Jets fans called the Pats cheaters for years for McGinest "faking" an injury to slow down the Colts. Now they think it is gamesmanship.

    Oh come on. Take off the homer glasses and take the quotes off of "faking". McGinest obviously faked that injury. Especially since on replay you can see Ty Law also got simultaneously "injured" but miraculously recovered when he saw McGinest was the one staying down.

    I thought it made the win over Dungheap and Goober even sweeter, actually.

    Yeah I posted this topic in Cromartie praise thread earlier today. Seems like No-Huddle is in Pace's head along with Jets staff. Tryin to plant a seed in refs heads about moving before snaps. Keep poundin'm with NH and they'll have oxygen tanks on sidelines not gatorade.

    If he had said, "Mr. Brady can we please get a chance to line up," everybody here would be laughing and saying what a great sport the guy is. Saying that something is "borderline illegal," but you wish your own team would do the same thing is about the highest praise you can give.
