    I read through the whole article last night and even though it would hurt a lot, SB 42 is absolute rock bottom (after plunging from atop Mount Everest). Losing a second-round matchup to the Jets would just be excruciatingly annoying.

    No way. I didnt watch sports for 2 months after that. They were 1 minute from being best ever.

    That's not accurate in the least. This team is young and improving, rebuilding, reloading. We will likely be better next year! Losing today would hurt a lot. It's the Jets. But we will be back.

    After losing to the Giants there was also the devastating thought that we would likely never be in THAT situation again, 18-0, chasing perfection.

    A loss today would hurt. It would be disappointing an embarrassing.

    For those of us who remember, with the exception of Game 6, Nothing, Nothing comes close to SB 42.

    I agree with this....

    After all the smack talk, emotion, the Boston/NY THING and the total dis-likeability of the entire Jets organization...(Seriously...Name ONE guy you like on that team.....I respect Revis....But I don't like him)...it would be a VERY DEPRESSING off-season.

    Totally agree. Losing today would be worse. We'd have to endure at least one more week of bloviation.

    The SB loss was earned by the Patriots coaches and players. Poorly prepared for the Giants up the middle blitzkreig and slow to adjust. The Giants were well prepared, smart game plan and executed on the field. Pats put themselves in a position where misplays (missed INT, failure to take down Eli...) and a fluke catch could screw the pooch. Lost to the better team that day.

    Unlike the class Giants org, the Jets epitomize everything wrong, starting at the top and drooling down all over the entire misbegotten enterprise. Losing today would be wimping out to the loudmouth bully. Time to punch out his lights.

    Not for me. I didn't expect much going into this season because of all the young players. I will be very excited about next season no matter what given the players we will be picking up in the draft and coming back from injury. I'm already excited about how good they can be next year.

    The article is pretty much worthless, playing off the sensationalist hype of the moment rather than looking at the big picture. For instance, the Jets were already supposed to have past the pats and yet here we are yet again. Why don't they win the division before we go ahead and declare them taking over the division. Because even if they do happen to beat the pats today I highly doubt they are good enough to win a superbowl (although stranger things have happened).

    No way. Nothing could ever be worse than that game. The only thing that could make it worse is if we went 18-0 again then lost to the Jets in the Superbowl and since that will never happen this game would have to settle somewhere in the top 10. But 42 will be the worst game and one of the worst days of my life

    No need to be prisoners of the moment, yes it would be AWFUL but it wouldn't even be worse than blowing the 21-3 AFC Championship game lead, let alone SB42.

    Totally disagree.Enduring one more week of the blowhards would be a pain in the ass but, I still to this day am depressed about 18-1, and probably won't get pass it until we win another SB.

    Are you fing kidding me? This team is playing with house money right now. Anything more is gravy. Don't forget this is a rebuilding year with a young defense. Not an experienced veteran playoff seasoned defense like others in the league. They should prevail today but losing would not even be close to the SB upset.

    Did this reporter take a payoff from Rex to publish this? Seriously, it sounds like a weak attempt to place more pressure on NE.

    I'm glad they only read the Belichick times! :singing:

    Depends on how much you hate the Jets, Ryanosaurus Rex and Dirty Sanchez. That crew (criminal pun intended) is the only gang (ditto) that will compell me to pull for a Peyton Manning victory.

    Exactly. It wouldn't even be worse than that 2006 AFCC where pats gift wrapped the first of two manning super bowls. Heck, the ben Watson/champ Bailey game might be worse depending on how this one plays out.

    And let's not pretend that the Bears and Packers SBs happened to some different team.

    What a completely idiotic article. A shift of power in the AFC? What is this guy smoking? We are a young team with four picks before the Jets even make their first pick, and they have a few key players they won't be able to resign because there are too many FA's after this season.

    A loss today would be bitter with the amount of crap we'd have to take from New York, but will not be the end of the world because, 14-2 or not, this was and still is a rebuilding year.

    That's about the dumbest thing ever.

    We were 18-0 going into a Super Bowl that was going to crown our team as the greatest of all time with the GOAT QB and Coach.

    And they want to say that losing to the Jets in the Divisional Round would be worse? With a team that no one had great faith in at the beginning of the season?

    That’s just irresponsible, sensationalistic journalism.

    Stupid Stupid Stupid.

    This is one of those things people say to get a reaction.

    I think going into the game the Pats matchup better against the Jets and it's at home, the 2010 pats are getting better, while the 07 pats slowing down towards the end. So I think this game is going to be easier to win, but you can't compare it to a game that would of changed Brady's Legacy.

    Completely STUPID.
    So losing a playoff game is worse than losing the SB in an otherwise undefeated season, because the team that beat us has big mouths?
    Anyone who has ever played a sport at a high level understands that losing is losing and it doesnt feel better if you lose to a classy team.
    This game would be the equivalent of losing to Denver in 2005.
    Biggest game in franchise history, are you kidding me? It isnt even top 10.

    By the way, what happens in this game does not change the direction the teams are headed in. When next year starts the outcome of this game is done and over, and irrelevant.

    A loss today would be devastating to say the least. Right up there with the loss to the Colts in the '06 AFC Championship Game, BUT nothing, absolutely nothing will ever match the feeling after losing to the Giants in the SB and everything that was significant had the Patriots won.

    The Patriots were 1 game away from 19-0 and were favored heavily against the Giants. I think it was the biggest statistical mismatch in NFL history. They lost on a fluke play made by a guy who's not even in football anymore. No loss will ever be as heartbreaking at SB 42

    ... same thing here in NY .. calling it biggest game ever ... we too are a young building team ... there will be some cleaning house of old age at the end of the year regardless ... LT, Taylor and Jenkins probably wont be back.

    I wouldn't say the loss would be more devastating but I haven't been this excited about a game since the '01 SB. Can't help how I feel.

    Since the Pats first won the SB and Sox won the WS it was such a huge sigh of relief that I just seemed to have lost that fire as a fan. I thank Rex and the Jests for bringing that back. I never wanted the Pats to beat a team so bad. OK, maybe I do feel it would be more devastating

    Not quite. They still have their first, so, should the JEST win today, the Patriots would have two picks before the JEST's first pick, and then another four before the JEST's next pick (at the end of the third round).

    Not even remotely close. Nowhere near.

    Perfect season on the line
    Superbowl championship on the line

    Please in 2 years nobody will even remember this game happened regardless of the result. (Nobody outside of NY and Boston)

    I didn't know a sporting event could make me feel so awful until the 07 season superbowl. I still get angry and sad to this day.

    Wake me up when it's a Superbowl championsip. Otherwise, can't even compare them. Heck this isn't even an AFCCG.
