Moore miffed at Collinsworth
As if the "butt-fumble" wasn’t embarrassing enough, Jets right guard Brandon Moore called out Cris Collinsworth for making an even bigger deal of Mark Sanchez's errant slide into his rear end.
"The Collinsworth guy, never really been a big fan of his," Moore said, when asked if he was bothered by the media attention given to Sanchez's second-quarter fumble against the Patriots.
"To portray it that way, and to see it on TV and all of a sudden somebody slides into the back of you, you're going to fall. That happens a lot. Just in general plays. You don't know what's going on. I didn't know what was going on during the game. Good thing I didn't know until I saw it."
That, however, isn't how Collinsworth saw the play developing.
"Oh. My. Gosh," the NBC commentator said on-air, in between laughs. "Vince Wilfork just threw Brandon Moore into Mark Sanchez. I have never seen this before in my life.
Watch this. Vince Wilfork is going to throw Brandon Moore back into his quarterback, he's going to fumble the football.
"This is what Reggie White used to do to people: forklift'em and just lift them off the ground. Mark Sanchez is not expecting it, and it was the backside of Brandon Moore that knocked the ball out."
Here's the clip -- you be the judge.
