The NFL has a plan 锟斤拷 to consider a plan, that might help.

Troy Vincent, executive vice president of football operations for the NFL, announced Wednesday that the league will consider a targeting rule and re-examine how non-football acts are punished. The non-football acts part of this is in response to Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski being suspended for one game after a brutal hit on Bills cornerback Tre’Davious White that was egregiously and amittedly late.

There was some outrage at the lack of severity for Gronkowski’s actions, especially after the NFL had announced two-game suspensions for Michael Crabtree and Aqib Talib (before both were reduced to one on appeal). Then came a pair of nasty hits in the Bengals-Steelers game on Monday Night Football.

Frustration with inconsistency in the NFL discipline system has been a key theme throughout Roger Goodell’s tenure as commissioner, whether it is for incidents that occur on or off the field.

No doubt about it, said Riveron, who made the overturn from New York on Sunday. It was clear and obvious. We use that for every replay. Unless it is clear and obvious to us, we will not change the ruling on the field. This definitely met that criteria.

As for the Jets, the message from Todd Bowles was clear: Move on.

They’re not changing the call, Bowles said. We’re not winning the ballgame. We have moved on from that. I don’t really give two shakes about it.

Bowles emphasized that his attention was now on this week’s opponent, the Dolphins.

It wasn’t the reason we lost the game, Bowles said. We’ve moved on from that. It’s not changing. We’re not going to cry about it all week. We have to go play Miami.

It’s gone, it’s over with, and it’s frustrating and we’ll hate it and all that stuff, but for us to continue talking about it just does no good.
