Spectators who are no longer in a coma Monday night will notice a fun sequence at the beginning of the fourth quarter of the Patriots 'victory over the Jets' spectacularly inept team . A pair of denied penalties against the New England casino team created the ultra-rare scene of Bill Belikick, whose default expression is sour sniff, smiling and mocking the sidelines of an NFL football game.
That the Patriots even gave an indication of how diligently they were not created by the Jets at this point in the game. It was the fourth and second of the 33-yard line in New York, a downsizing and distance scenario that not only enormously favors this, but one that Tom Brady can transform with his eyes and hands closed tied behind his back. If the Patriots played percentages against a team they even vaguely respected, they would have gone through a fourth-down conversion. But Belikik seemed to mean that he kept the barrier above all other considerations, and the point would have made it much more difficult for the Jets' amusingly painless offense ̵
But having made the decision to give up the 33, Belikik decided that the best course of action would be to give his player a few extra meters of space to work with, that would only be possible by taking penalty, and what better way to take a penalty shot late on impact than by burning every second available outside a running game clock. The unsuccessful third-down game ended at 11:04 of the fourth quarter – the Patriots simply lined up at point formation and dropped the game clock to slow the game down.
That's where things got goofy. Brain genius Adam Gus identifies that Belikik may choose to give his traveler more space and, in a fit of pettiness, decides to deny his colleague this smallest award. Gus refused to delay the penalty game, holding the Patriots back to 33. But in the end it was a hollow victory and one, probably reinforced by Belikik – by marveling at the rules, the game clock was restarted after resetting the ball and the playing clock whistled to life. which allowed Belihik to let go for another 25 seconds before punching. Thus, Belikik won the prerogative to burn more than a minute outside the clock between games, deciding that the fun thing would be to make a second crack by giving his stunt team five extra yards and instructing his team to take
But this one damn Adam Gasse, more determined than ever to save that moment and win this incredibly stupid and senseless battle of wills against a team and coach who had spent the evening diligently tracing him and his football team, denied the fake the beginning of . Belikik, after really renting a stay in a penthouse in Gusse's mind for free, could only smile and giggle with disbelief:
Subsequently, Belichik admitted that he had deliberately used a loophole in the rules to escape the extra clock with his team ahead. Five yards out of space may have been a nice bonus, but from the sound of things, what Belikik really wanted was to take the opportunity to bend his big brain and take advantage of a little bad advantage:
“It was just the way, who set the rules, Belikik told reporters at his post-game press conference. "We were able to get a lot of time out of the clock without actually doing anything."
Belikhik closed by saying that this little trick of consuming a clock should and probably would be banned from use.
"This is probably a door that will be closed," Belichik said. "Probably needs to be closed, but is currently open."
This is the shit you can handle when you are light years ahead of your opponent and have spent your career tossing out every rule and regulation for every possible vulnerability. This is what makes Belikik the best, and also what makes him pure evil.
