    I won't. It's freak conditions.

    Although you can expect to hear that the Pats were stupid for building a pass based offense (I know, I know they're 'really good' at running it) for a team that will be playing in NE in January.

    If the game turns out to be the snow struck disaster it looks like it might be its not possible the Jets win this game.

    That being said many would turn on the Patriots if they lost probably a good 1/3rd of the fans are only on for the undefeated ride anyway.

    Followed the team since they were founded and never turned on them no matter how bad the season. Why start now?

    Yeah, I'll turn on them faster than Superman going through a revolving door.

    We're talking a turn of Benedict Arnold proportions.

    If they lose I'm taking my Bruschi jersey and lighting it on fire in the snow and then logging on to Colts.com to order my Peyton Manning jersey.

    If the Pats lose they are a disgrace to anyone who's ever put on a football uniform!

    I'll never watch another game.
    I will burn every Pats artifact I own.
    I shall delete the Patsfan bookmark from my fav list.
    I shall disown them utterly and completely.

    I'll never turn on the team or stop being a fan.

    But this would be, by far, the toughest loss to swallow I've ever seen... maybe tied with the AFCCG last year.

    Why would anyone turn on them? It's not like they've never lost a game before. :confused:

    Conditions have nothing to do with it.
    Even if they lost in perfect weather,I will still cheer for them.

    Actually, it's more confounding than curious. Sad, what some define as a fan.

    Yeah! I'll ******' freak out because we'll only be 15-1 and have home field throughout the playoffs. As much as I would hate losing to the Jets, it really wouldn't set me back that much. Gimme a freakin' break!

    Ya it is freak conditions in the middle of December, in New England to have snow, maybe some rain and wind. Never heard of anything like that before.

    Considering the number of people here who have already "turned on them", even though they are 13-0, more is inevitable. Real fans won't though.

    I definatly will for sure, I mean I've only been following them for 13 years now, you know since I started watching football and all. So really I'm just a fair weather fan anyway.

    Why would I turn on them if they go 15-1 when I didn't turn on them when they were 1-15? :)

    I guess if they lose, I will have lost all faith....

    I could always become a Chargers fan...:bricks: :bricks:

    Who the hell really would turn on the pats for not making a perfect season?

    What a joke of a thread, who cares if we lose a meaningless game? Why would anyone turn on them? Why would you turn on them if they lose any game? You are suppose to be a fan of the team right? I really don't understand why you would be even thinking about this.

    I can see the point of this thread -- it's hard to root for a 13-1 team.

    I would trade losing in the next 3 games for a guarantee of making the super bowl.

    I know others on the board wouldn't, which I find bizzare, but to each his or her own.

    I would personally trade a win today and the last two games for a guaranteed SB win myself... dunno why, but it just seems foolish to not have HFA all the way through since we've come so far lol.
