Default Patriots down poor J.E.T.S.

Well, hats to the Patriots for a quite awesome display on offense and ST's.

Brady had all the time in the world to pass because the Patriots O-Line was utterly dominant - 3 TD's 0 INT's.

Randy Moss silenced the detractors (for the week at least) by having the 3rd best game of his carer in terms of yardage - just wait til he hits his stride.

Sammy Morris looked like an excellent option as Dillons replacement - made some hard yards up the middle.

Wes welker lived up to his reputation (apartt from one drive killing drop on 3rd down) with 6 catches for 61 yards and a TD,

Ellis Hobbs breaks the NFL record for longest kickoff run back with a 108 yard scorcher.

The Patriots D shut down hyped offseason acquisition Thomas Jones to the tune of 42 yards at a lowly 3ypc.

The Jets threw everything they had at the Patriots - inclding some very inventive offensive play calling L.Coles out of the backfield on the swing pass was a great call.

So lets not 'crown their ass' just yet - but this was a nice start.

Bring on San Diego.

Looks like picking up Moss on my fantasy was a wise move.

As for Jones, he was questionable with an ankle and not 100%. I think he was a quality pick-up for the Jets and will help them down the road.

Moss was really impressive today. But I thought they would give more the ball to Maroney, he seems like he can carry the load.

Anyway, I had both Moss and Brady on a fantasy league and they helped me a lot

Maroney did okay-ish - he's still learning the game.

If he repeats todays production all year then he's on target for approx 1200 yards which isn't too shabby.

Its also the first time he carried 20 times - they are building him up gradually.

Im glad you had a good day with Brady and Randy - they look to be hooking up nicely - Moss made some truly outstanding catches where all Brady did was throw the ball up and let him him go fetch it - something that Brady has neevr had with previous WR's.

I sat here in my office all week telling anyone who'd listen to pick up Randy Moss because he was going to have a monster game against the Jets.

Everyone told me I was crazy.

Who's crazy now?

Pats looked unstoppable versus the Jets. The rest of the AFC East teams looked average.

That's why we play the games...

Any team seems unstoppable when your stealing signals from the other side. If this is true the patriots and there coaches are slime ball.

Sources: Camera confiscated after claims of Pats spying on Jets

By Chris Mortensen
ESPN.com

Updated: September 10, 2007, 6:39 PM ET

NFL security confiscated a video camera and its tape from a New England Patriots employee on the team's sideline during Sunday's game against the Jets in a suspected spying incident, sources said.

The camera and its tape were placed in a sealed box and forwarded to the league office for investigation, the sources said.

"The rule is that no video recording devices of any kind are permitted to be in use in the coaches' booth, on the field, or in the locker room during the game," the league said in a statement from spokesman Greg Aiello. "Clubs have specifically been reminded in the past that the videotaping of an opponent's offensive or defensive signals on the sidelines is prohibited.

"We are looking into whether the Patriots violated this rule."

The Patriots' cameraman was suspected of aiming his camera at the Jets' defensive coaches who were sending signals to their unit on the field, the sources said. The league also is investigating some radio frequency issues that occurred during the game.

The league's competition committee could conduct a conference call about the incident, which violates NFL policy, and ultimately recommend a penalty that could cost the Patriots a future draft pick or picks if it verifies that the team was spying on the Jets.

It's not their first time.

-- A member of the NFL's competition committee
"It's not their first time," a member of the committee, who did not wish to be identified, said.

In fact, Green Bay Packers president Bob Harlan confirmed a similar incident that occurred when the Patriots played at Lambeau Field last Nov. 19. The same cameraman who was questioned by NFL security on Sunday was also the one whom the Packers removed from the sideline and escorted from the field during their 2006 game, according to Packers security official Doug Collins.

"From what I can remember, he had quite a fit when we took him out," Harlan said. "We had gotten word before the game that they [the Patriots] did this sort of thing, so we were looking for it."

A Jets official declined comment Monday, directing an inquiry to the league office. The Patriots also did not have immediate comment.

"With anything along those lines, those are all league-related matters, and anything that deals with an issue like this or anything on a team-by-team basis, those all go to the league," coach Eric Mangini said in his news conference Monday.

New England cornerback Ellis Hobbs said he was unaware of the controversy, and unwilling to believe his team had cheated.

"We put too many hours in as individuals and a team to have to go out and cheat," he said. "If it's true, obviously, we're in the wrong. But I'm standing behind my team, my coaches. I don't think we do that stuff."
