Jets Coach Mike Westhoff Would Rather Beat Patriots ‘Than Go to Heaven’


March 15, 2011

Jets special teams coach Mike Westhoff reached out to the devil Tuesday in the hopes of making a deal.

Westhoff was appearing as a motivational speaker at a Daytop, N.J. drug and alcohol treatment program for adolescents when he brought up his rivals to the northeast.

When speaking about the Patriots, Westhoff said, "I'd rather beat [them] than maybe go to Heaven," according to The Star-Ledger.

Westhoff, you may remember, made comments last season accusing the Patriots of forming a wall on the sidelines to block special teamers from running out of bounds. The NFL later fined the Jets $100,000, both for Westhoff's comments and Sal Alosi's sideline tripping incident.

The NFL probably won't be fining Westhoff for this comment, but he might have someone else to repay later on.
