Jet Day of Mourning

BMF was so disgusted by the first half of that game it’s ruined ALL of sports for me - at least for today.

I couldn’t even enjoy what was actually a helluva second half because I was literally sick to my stomach at 24-0.

To me its obvious the team came out flat because they played their emotional Super Bowl last week vs the Pats. They weren’t properly motivated until the Steelers embarrassed us for 30 minutes.

I love Rex but I don’t think he sufficiently game-planned against a letdown.

I hate sports.

    I know what you mean. I felt physically ill as halftime approached, in a way that felt like nothing so much as how I felt from my seat up top at Shea the day Glavine spit the bit against the Fish with the division on the line a few years back.

    that was so frustrating to watch … Pitchers and Catchers report when?

    22 days MtMF…

    I was the same way. I was somewhere where we got free beer when the Jets scored. We were drunk the second half.

    What is it with this friggin’ NY sports curse that Met/Jet/Ranger/Knick fans live under? Did we not celebrate properly back in `69 for the Mets, Jets, Knicks’ wins? Or in `86 when our club owned the City?

    My steel cup is worn out from having my nuts kicked in so often.

    I feel like a prisoner on the “Island of Misfit Toys”… I’ll just cry myself to sleep and wait til next year.

    It’s probably the ghost of Robert Moses who put a curse on the Jersey Jets since they abandoned his “multi-purpose” memorial, Shea Stadium.
    Let’s face it, the J’ints had to leave skankee stadium (would’t you?) But the Jets could of stayed on the right side of the Hudson.
    At least the Bills went to the Superbowl in the las 20 years.

    At any point during the season, if you had to pick the hardest path to the Super Bowl, almost everyone would say…Colts, Pats and Pittsburgh…all on the road!

    While I’m disappointed…I’m not devastated…I knew this could easily happen…in fact, if it wasn’t for that early INT off of Brady, last weeks game would have been just like yesterdays.

    I seemed like the Jets D was more worried about trying to strip the ball away than making the tackle.

    I always feel this way anyways, but it seemed like the Refs gave the Steelers the benefit of the doubt on every call. especially that reviewed “catch”. How could they not over turn that play when you could see the ball bounce off the ground???

    There was some blatant helmet to helmet calls that they completely ignored too…

    I hate when it gets called one way during the season, but completely different during the playoffs.

    My only satisfaction is knowing my boss is a Pats fan and i got to watch him mope all last week. At least he feels worse than I do.

    Agree with BMF!

    To much talk and BS for ther Patriot game. The team peaked to soon because Rex tried to make the New England game the super bowl!

    Rex was right!…”Same Old Jets!”

    Agree with USMF about it being the hardest path. This should show the Jets the importance of winning the division. Having to win three on the road every year is really difficult.

    First off, I’m a Giants fan. Just want that out in the open. I was pulling for the Jets all season. I like Rex, Sanchez and the rest of gang green. I want to extend my congratulations in coming as far as you did and coming out and fighting hard in the 2nd half. I have a feeling the Jets will win it all in the next few years. They have shown a lot of promise and I wish them the best of luck. I agree with TDFKABL, if anything, winning the division should be their goal for next year, lets see the ass whoopin they give the AFC on their home turf.

    Here’s to the Jets & Giants reaching the SupderBowl in 2014!

    Also, LETS GO METS!
