If you watched yesterday’s New York Jets win over the Buffalo Bills, you are aware of the train-wreck called Matt Mulligan, which almost derailed the victory.
First Mulligan was flagged for a holding call which negated a 41 yard run by Shonn Greene. That earned Mulligan a tongue-lashing from Guard Brandon Moore.
For Mulligan’s second penalty call, he received a similar punishment from offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer.
For his part, Mulligan was all mums on the incidents.
“Brandon had a really good game yesterday. Schotty coached a realy good game, a lot of play-calls. So I think there’s a lot of positive things, never any negative,” the tight end said.
“A lot of guys had a good game, we all played well,” he said. “There’s a few things we could work on this week, little things we could fix.”
And that’s that.
Mulligan is tied for Wayne Hunter for the team lead with five penalties against this season. Of course Hunter plays about 95% more than Mulligan.
Mulligan replaced Dustin Keller in the second quarter after Keller left the game with a head injury.
