Default Jets linebacker Calvin Pace says Pats run “borderline illegal” offense

Jets linebacker Calvin Pace says Pats run “borderline illegal” offense

Calvin Pace says the Pats’ fast paced offense has always been a challenge, and now stopping it is even tougher.

“It’s borderline illegal because sometimes the guys aren’t always set when they snap the ball,” Pace said Wednesday. “But it’s smart. Why not hurry a team up? I wish we would do it. For a defense, it just puts pressure on you.”

The Patriot’s no-huddle tactic kicks the offense tempo up a notch, leaving some teams scrambling. The Patriots have run 473 plays, 39 more than the next.

“It’s very difficult,” linebacker David Harris said. “You’ll see defenses not even lined up and they’re already running a play. They get a lot of extra yardage because of it. It causes guys to lose their mind. You can see it on film.”
No huddle / hurry up offense has been around for decades.

Is this guy saying it's not "fair"? Kinda' sounds a little whiny for an NFL football player, if you ask me.
