The guys delve more into the two terrible "Roughing the Passer" calls in the NFL yesterday.

New York Jets v Tennessee Titans

Geno Smith and the Jets can’t even lose correctly. (Wesley Hitt/Getty Images)

NY Post Sports aren’t supposed to be this exhausting, this conflicting, this confusing, this schizophrenic. …

All day, back and forth, your heart arguing with your brain, the fan who pays rent in your soul at war with the realist inside your skull. You are a Jets fan, so you want them to win every game you watch. You are a Jets fan, so you want them to lose every game the rest of the way. …

No NFL game had ever ended 16-11. This one would. The Jets would win it. Of course they would … with a win that was really a loss, one that probably puts Heisman Trophy winner Marcus Mariota in another team’s uniform next year.

“Tough,” Rex Ryan said.

The poor Jets. I swear if I was capable of actual human emotions I might almost feel bad for them. You keep thinking this franchise has hit rock bottom, then it falls off the continental shelf, drops down into the Marianas Trench and start drilling further down.

Consider Sunday. Here the Jets could finally put their genius for losing winnable games to good use. They could have joined Jacksonville, Oakland and Tampa as the only 2-12 teams in football and given themselves a puncher’s chance of getting Mariota with the No. 1 pick. But they just had to go and blow it with a win that doesn’t help them in any way. They can’t even Suck for the Duck. Now about the best they can hope for is that they lose enough in the last two weeks to get Jameis Winston. Or hope everyone else is so scared off by Winston that they pass on him, he falls into their lap and becomes the latest in their proud traditions of failed franchise quarterbacks.

Come to think of it, given Jameis Winston’s history at Florida State, he’s probably the perfect fit in New York. So while this win is a loss for the Jets, that Jets loss is a win for me. They may have dropped the ball on Suck for the Duck, but they still have a shot at Race to Jameis, and that’s even better.

The Age, AustraliaThey say disasters bring out the best in people. Not in everyone, it seems.

Cheerful onlookers have been snapping mobile phone “selfies” at the perimeters of the Sydney siege as a still unknown number of hostages remain prisoners of a gunman. Several photos being shared were originally uploaded to Instagram. One man shared a photo with a fire truck in the background and the hashtag #hostagesituationselfie. The photo has since been deleted from his account.

In another happy snap, three men likely to be tourists pose in front of the police tape marking off the exclusion zone around the terrifying hostage situation in the Lindt cafe in Martin Place. One of the men gives the peace sign. … On Monday afternoon BuzzFeed reporter Mark Di Stefano took a photo of two blonde women leaning together to take a selfie “100 metres from the Lindt cafe.” The photo has since been shared more than 450 times on Twitter.

If you’re keeping score, the fall of civilization is right on schedule.

As I’m writing this, the hostage situation is over after 16 hours. Most of the hostages are safe, some are wounded and it’s unclear if any failed to make it out alive. What we do know is that none of the police who stormed the cafe are hurt, and the crazed lunatic gunman is dead. I don’t know enough about this stuff to know if this qualifies him for his 72 virgins in the afterlife. I certainly hope not. And if it does, I hope they’re the wrong kind of virgins. The kind who sit in their rooms all day eating Count Chocula and playing World of Warcraft in “HAN SHOT FIRST’ T-shirts.

What I can confirm is that the dopes who were outside the police lines posing for selfies like grinning monkeys while innocent people were fearing for their lives are only marginally better people than the nutjob who took the hostages in the first place. I mean, really? This is how far we’ve come as a species? There’s a real-life, gut-wrenching, life-or-death crisis going on, so that’s an excuse to pose a goofy picture like you’re a tourist pretending to swallow the Washington Monument or something?

Since the dawn of time, humans have wondered what they would say if they could deliver a message to the world. From Socrates to Confucius to Christ and beyond, great thinkers have pondered this question. And now in 2014 everyone does have that chance, and the message is this: We are horrible narcissists. Here’s a picture of my dinner. This is my cat taking a nap. Here’s me lucky enough to be outside a cafe where a deranged psycho is about to murder a dozen people. Peace! Duckface! #lol!

I mean, do you think for one second this would’ve gone on a generation ago? Or longer? If you could do back in time to Dealey Plaza, 1963, and handed out cell phones, do you think people would’ve posted selfies in front of JFK’s limo? Or in the ’30s they’d be instagramming the Nazis taking families out of Warsaw at gunpoint? The ‘net has given us such a sense of self importance that there people among us for whom no tragedy is so horrific it should get in the way of a really good social media post. I weep for mankind.

Here’s hoping everyone made it out alive, that they’re safe and somehow have the strength to handle the ordeal they’ve been through. And going forward, I propose a rule. The next time something like this happens and you’re caught taking selfies of it, you trade places with a hostage.

The Dolphins’ Week 1 postgame comments gave the Patriots plenty of bulletin board fodder for Sunday. (M. McKeown/Getty Images)

NESNThe New England Patriots usually are pretty good about ignoring the noise.  Not this week.

Patriots head coach Bill Belichick reportedly put quotes from Dolphins players all around the Gillette Stadium facility this week, reminding players what Miami was saying after beating New England 33-20 in Week 1. Apparently it worked, since the Patriots beat the Dolphins 41-13 on Sunday, scoring 27 unanswered points in the second half.

Cornerback Darrelle Revis was asked about that motivational tool after beating the Dolphins. “I don’€™t know what they were saying after the first game, but there was a lot of talk — those guys were chirping,” Revis said. … “The one thing you gotta understand is, you get a second stab at them, because we’€™re in the same [division]. You might need to watch what you say.” …

[I]n September … wide receiver Mike Wallace told the Miami Herald that the Dolphins could have scored 50 points against the Patriots. “Honestly, it’€™s not bragging or boasting, but I honestly feel like we could have scored at least 50 points,” Wallace said after Week 1.

You know that old hackneyed cliche that says the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results? Well, I’m adding a new meaning. Insanity is shooting your mouth off about the Patriots in the Bradichick Era and expecting that they’re not going to use it as motivation to exact revenge until you’re begging for a quick death. When is the rest of the NFL going to catch on to the fact that this coach works in grudges like some artists work in oils or clay? That he plays the “no respect” card the way Johnny Chan plays a pair of pocket aces?

The Patriots of this millennium feed off the disrespect. It’s one of the sources of their strength. They’re fueled by it the way Superman draws power from our yellow sun. And the road to their fourth Lombardi trophy is littered with the professional corpses of guys who dared to give them bulletin board fodder like this. Remember Freddie Mitchell of the Eagles, who popped off before Super Bowl XXXIX that he didn’t know who any of the Patriots defensive backs were? Don’t feel bad; not many people do. The highlight of his career was being shut down in that game and having Belichick say afterward, “We were glad when he was in there.” Or how about Steelers safety Anthony Smith, who in the 2007 season guaranteed a victory over the unbeaten Pats, only to have Brady go up in his grill mix after repeatedly targeting him in the end zone. There was the Jets celebrating a September win over New England and calling it their “Super Bowl.” It’s a fond memory they’ll all have when their coaches are clearing out their offices in a couple of weeks. Then there was the time the Browns rolled over the Patriots in a midseason game in 2010 and celebrated by giving coach Eric Mangini a Gatorade bath. He was fired at the end of the season, never coached again and now exists only as a hollow, Mangini-shaped shell of a man on ESPN 27 or somewhere. There are dozens of other such examples.

The point being, it never works out to talk smack about this Patriots team. They will always, always make you pay in the end. As Quintus told Maximus, “A people should know when they are conquered.”

@JerryThornton1

P.S. Since the Patriots are supposed to be such a classless team, run by an allegedly dour, angry coach who has no respect for anyone, I defy you cite me one example — just one — of a Patriots team yapping the way this 7-7, third-place Dolphins team did. It’s never happened, never will.

P.P.S. Broncos defensive tackle Terrance “Pot Roast” Knighton just gave the Patriots more fodder for their board. From The Denver Post:

“It doesn’t matter what happens. At the end of the year, we’€™re hoisting that trophy,” Knighton said. “I don’€™t care if New England doesn’t lose again. I don’€™t care where we have to play. I don’€™t care who our opponent is. We’€™re not going to be satisfied until we hoist that trophy. So if we’ve got to go to New England [in the playoffs] and win somewhere we’€™re not used to winning, we’€™re going to make it happen. … Write that. And put a big period after that one.’€

He then considered his punctuation options and decided on: “Exclamation point!”

On behalf of Patriots fans everywhere I say, “Thanks, Pot Roast.”
