Denver Broncos coach Vic Fangio wanted nothing to do with shaking hands with anybody associated with the New York Jets following Thursday night’s win. He was also seen instructing his players to do the same. As the clock hit zero, cameras captured him jogging off the field and telling Broncos players to go “right to the f—ing locker room.”
After the game, Fangio said his goal with that was to avoid confrontation.
“There were a couple of personal fouls at the end and our sideline was pi-sed off and I wanted to avoid any confrontation and have it get ugly,” Fangio said, via Ryan O’Halloran of the Denver Post. “I thought it was the prudent thing to do.”
The Broncos had a 4th-and-18 with 13 seconds left and the Jets jumped offsides. The Jets defense punished Broncos quarterback Brett Rypien with a big hit on the play. The very next play, Steve McClendon nailed Rypien with a huge hit. The hit resulted in a roughing the passer penalty.
Angela Rypien, Brett’s cousin who played in the Lingerie Football League, blasted the Jets for one of the hits.
