Strength and Conditioning Coach Tripped Miami Dolphins Player

The Jets have given word that strength and conditioning coach Sal Alosi was the man on the sidelines who tripped Dolphin Nolan Carroll on a punt in the third quarter.

Coach Rex Ryan had just been briefed on the incident after the game and didn’t want to comment on "what ifs." A team spokesman said, "The team is reviewing the situation and is looking into the appropriate next step."

If the team review finds this was intentional, Alosi should be fired immediately. There is no room for something that bush league on this team. The Jets may or may not go far in the Playoffs to back up their talk this year, but they should send a message that they have standards and won't tolerate behavior this embarrassing to the organization.
