New York Jets strong safety Marcus Maye pulls off an incredible interception down in Maimi with his team down big to the Dolphins.
It’s just not worth it. Why say it?
Opting for the low-hanging fruit is something better left for the other folks involved. When it’s this obvious, what’s the point?
New York Jets strong safety Marcus Maye pulled off an incredible interception Sunday, yet it reminded so many folks of a certain Thanksgiving night nearly a decade ago that hangs around this organization like a bad odor.
I'm not gonna say it; it's just too easy. (To this day, Brandon Moore was unfairly called out on that fateful Thanksgiving night.)

Nearly eight years after Mark Sanchez ran into Brandon Moore‘s backside, the witty Twitter pundits are out in full force, calling Maye’s play the “butt interception.” (Although, if I was in charge, “butt pick” would more aptly describe things.)
With the Jets trailing 24-0, Maye robbed former Jet Ryan Fitzpatrick in the fourth quarter. It’s his first pick of the season and first while playing his new position in 2020 (strong safety as opposed to free safety).
Nothing’s gone right for the Jets on Sunday other than this sole play.
