On Sunday, the Jets had the ball deep in Arizona territory and a one-point lead. The directive came in from the Cardinals' sideline: Let them score a touchdown, so Arizona could get the ball back down eight with more than a minute remaining. Sound advice, though it was mooted when Shonn Greene intentionally slid at the one-yard-line rather than score, and the Jets knelt to run out the clock.
DE Darnell Dockett wasn't happy with the strategy, and he made it known to his teammates. Safety Kerry Rhodes came over to try and convince him letting New York score was the right thing to do. Dockett and Rhodes got into a heated argument on the field—Florio says Dockett spit on Rhodes, Rhodes denies it. It doesn't really matter, because the Cardinals have much bigger problems, but Dockett has apologized to Rhodes for the run-in.
