Another game, another team whining about the Patriots beating them. I was taking a break due to the holiday but figured I had to come and post this ridiculous news.

Jaguars coach Mike Mularkey wasn't happy with with the patriots defense in a late goal line play.

Mularkey claims the Patriots were shifting and illegally calling out cadences, which forced Potter to move.

“That was disappointing because that was brought up to the officials before the game that they were going to do that,” Mularkey said in his post-game news conference. “They were going to shift illegally, not illegally, but line up and shift with the intent to draw the offense offsides and blurt out a cadence as they’re doing it.

To be fair, Tom Brady complained about this same sort of thing - the blurting out a cadence - back in 2010 when the Patriots were taking a knee against the Colts at the end of the game.

However, as Mularkey points out, this isn't illegal. Instead it's just another silly complaint from a long line of bitter players and coaches who've lost to the patriots. This particular instance hurt the Jaguars as Chad Henne was sacked on the next play and then Patrick Chung intercepted a pass the play after.

Still its not as ridiculous as the Dolphins complaining about the patriots running the clock out at the end of a game. That one takes the cake as most absurd whine.
