Jets Brandon Moore Not A Fan Of Collinsworth Or Being Butt Of Jokes
The New York Jets were embarrassed by the New England Patriots on Thanksgiving evening.
One particular play of embarrassment for the Jets was quarterback Mark Sanchez running into the rear end of lineman Brandon Moore, fumbling, and that turning into a long touchdown return for the Patriots.
That play in particular has been talked about and the subject of jokes for days now.
Moore for his part does not like being the butt of jokes, no pun intended, and voiced his opinion about all subject matters via ESPN New York.
“I really don’t know what to say about it,” the New York Jets right guard said in a quiet moment Monday at his locker. “It’s the weirdest play I’ve ever seen and I’ve seen a lot of plays over my time in football.”
“The littlest things nowadays turn into Internet sensations. It’s not surprising.”
“Yeah, to be part of something like that is … it’s not something you want to be part of.”
Moore then turned his frustrations to NBC analyst Chris Collinsworth, who again made Moore the butt of more jokes.
“The Collinsworth guy, I’ve never been a big fan of his,” Moore said. “To portray it that way and to see it on TV, somebody slides into the back of you, that play happens a lot. … I didn’t know what was going on until after the game. During the game, I didn’t know, and good thing I didn’t know.”
“Just as a commentator, I don’t particularly care for him,” Moore said of Collinsworth. “That’s just as a fan watching the games in general.”
