By the time you're reading this, the words "Sal Alosi" will be trending on Twitter. That's because Sal Alosi is the name of the Jets coach who tripped the Dolphins' Nolan Carroll during Sunday's game.

Alosi, a strength and conditioning coach in his fourth year with the Jets, stuck his leg out and took Carroll down, as you can see below.




"The team is reviewing the situation and looking into the appropriate next steps," a Jets spokesperson told members of the media.

Originally, the Jets took Alosi was "ushered away under security" but the team eventually confirmed he was the guilty party.

Dolphins players didn't take the whole thing too well either.

"That is so dirty," Dolphins linebacker Karlos Dansby said, before nominating the play for Monday night's "Come on, MAN!" segment.

"They're cheaters -- they do what they do," Channing Crowder said. "They cheat and talk junk and they do all that stuff but we beat the hell out of them today. I tell you the truth, I would have broke that old man's leg."

Carroll himself said he wasn't mad and declined to comment on it (and, seriously, go watch Jeff Darlington's "Miami Minute" with all these quotes. They're hysterical.)

Of course, the Jets have plenty more to fix than just dirty strength and conditioning coaches on the sideline, as CBS Sports' Ian Eagle and Dan Fouts point out below.

Alosi has been watching too many of those buffalo wild wing commercials.....Maybe he was just stretching his leg or got a cramp...You know how much those coaches have to be in shape on the sidelines....Good thing it wasn't Andy Reid or the Ryan brothers, otherwise that may have ended his career...

You must be very well educated with those comments.  You are the typical trash that the internet does not need.

Unbelievable!!  I honestly can say I've never seen anything like it!  Hey Sal, you're a NFL coach, this isn't the lingerie football league!  What isn't unbelievable is that this happened from someone in the Jets organization.  That franchise is full of dirty people, from the fat blob of a head coach on down to...oh yeah, the strength and conditioning coach.

Hmmmm ... Jets fans are a bit quiet when they are the ones finally caught cheating. Funny, the organization seems to have tried to cover it up. I think the investigation should include a potential cover-up from the Jets coaches, security, and/or management.
