The NY Jets are Trippin'

No this isn't the NY Post, it's just a headline that I couldn't resist.  Sorry.  However, the NY Jets are indeed tripping both literally and figuratively.  Strength Coach Sal Alosi (seen above) was suspended for the remainder of the season by the Jets organization after intentionally tripping the Dolphins special teams gunner, Nolan Carroll.  The Jets last two games have been terrible and although "slipping" would be the word most people use, it's not that big of a stretch to insert the word "trippin" instead, even if it's just for a bad headline. 

First I'd like to say that I am shocked at how mindless Alosi was to actually stick his knee out and interfere with a player involved in the play.  It's one thing to get in an opponents face if he comes flying out of bounds on your sideline, but to actually impede a player during a play is unthinkable.  He has to know that everything going on around the football field is caught on camera.  Imagine if he had injured Carroll?  He would be liable and could probably face assault charges.  It's acceptable for players to hit each other as hard as they want but for a coach to do it flies right in the face of the NFL's big push this season for increased player safety.  
The news today is that he actually ordered the wall of players and coaches seen standing on the sideline there to purposefully interfere with the punt coverage gunner.  In light of that news, the Jets organization announced that they have suspended Alosi "indefinitely."  He must be a very good strength coach because they have every reason to fire him.  I'm sure the NFL is also putting some pressure on the Jets about this situation given all the different controversies this team has burdened the NFL's clean image with this year.
