Brandon Moore was the butt of many jokes over the past few days following the play where New York Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez did a face-plant into the right guard's rear-end causing a fumble returned for a touchdown in the Thanksgiving Day rout by the New England Patriots. The Jets lineman can be accused of accidentally giving his quarterback the Dirty Sanchez but Moore won't accept the blame for being manhandled and causing the widely-ridiculed mishap. Moore targeted NBC analyst Cris Collinsworth who criticized Moore for what he perceived as the guard being pushed around by Patriots defensive lineman Vince Wilfork on the play. "Oh my gosh, Vince Wilfork just threw Brandon Moore into Mark Sanchez.  I Have never seen this before," Collinsworth said on the broadcast, "Watch this, Vince Wilfork is going to throw Brandon Moore back into his quarterback, he's going to fumble the football.  This is what Reggie white used to do to people — forklift 'em, and just lift them off the ground." Moore, who said he didn't even realize he had caused the fumble until after the game, disagreed with Collinsworth's exuberant assessment of what went down. "The Collinsworth guy, (I'm) not really a big fan of his," said Moore.  "He's a commentator I don't particularly care for." Moore may have grounds for an argument.  Replays show that Sanchez slid into Moore's legs and Wilfork never even lifted Moore off the ground.  Moore was actually pushing his foe backwards. "To portray it that way and to see it on TV, somebody slides into the back of you, that play happens a lot," said Moore.  "I didn't know what was going on until after the game." Why Moore would dwell on just one of the Jets' many low-lights in the 49-19 loss and on Collinsworth in particular was not clear.   When asked what he had against Collinsworth, Moore said, "I don't need to get into (specifics).  He's ... whatever."
