[N]ow that we know the Jets were lining up personnel on the sideline in a shoulder-to-shoulder, foot-to-foot formation, it’s safe to assume that others have engaged in similar tactics. Jets special-teams coordinator Mike Westhoff, in a Wednesday visit with the Waddle & Silvy Show on ESPN 1000 in Chicago, said that the Patriots engage in similar tactics. "A number of teams do it," Westhoff said. "There is a pretty good team up north that lines their whole defense up when they do it, so it’s something that just kind of happened." Asked if he’s saying the Patriots line up players to impede punt coverage teams, Westhoff elaborated. "Well, if you watch them, their defense when the opponents’ punt team is out there," Westhoof said. "They’re up there pretty close to the line so it looks like they are trying to do it. Now are they doing anything illegal? Are they tripping anybody, heck no. I’m not saying that. That’s not the point. But, yeah, they’re lined up there. Is it making a difference? I don’t know. I really don’t know, because to tell you the truth before this happened I never really looked at anybody’s sideline in all my years."
