    Checked out Jets Insider this morning and they had an "official Pats suck' thread going on over there.

    But, we are better than that. We are more grown up . We may even feel sorry for them.

    So, I thought that we might list why we feel sorry for them and there are plenty of reasons.

    Here's some of mine:

    1. They haven't even been to a Super Bowl since after the actual merger of the AFL-NFL. Neil Armstrong had not walked on the moon when they played in their last Super Bowl.

    2. They call themselves the "New York Jets". But they practice in Long Island and play in New Jersey.

    3. They play in a stadium called "Giants Stadium".

    I have more reason to feel sorry for them. What are yours?

    The Jets aren't even the number one football team in their city.

    The all time face of their franchise (Namath) made an ass of himself on national television.

    Their awful draft history.

    They actually thought they were getting one over on us by leapfrogging us to draft Dewayne Robertson a.k.a. "the beach ball with butter knives".

    Honestly, just because they partake in this sort of behaviour doesn't mean I feel comfortable doing it. Especially before the game. And especially since they're tied for first at the moment and a division rival. They can pre-game hate all they want, but I'll save my energy for Sunday.

    They don't have entertaining exchanges between the saintly PATSNUTme and the cosmopolitan Alk (AKA: HuskerAlk).

    how about the fact that their team is 69 games under .500 all-time?

    how about the fact that the colts, who have been out of the division for years, still have more AFC EAST division championships than the jets?

    how about the fact that they have spent the last 35 year making complete fools of themsleves both on the football field and in the media? I mean, just last year, their fans were DEFENDING herm edwards as a viable coach!

    oh I can do this all day...

    Re: The Official: Reasons to feel sorry for Jets fans Tread

    Sympathy for the Devil:

    They had to endure Rich Kotite
    They had to endure Pete Carroll (we can really sympathize there)
    They had Parcells coach them and then spurn them without any AFC title games, SB apearances or SB Championships
    BB quit as HC of the NY Jets after one day
    They had to endure media whore Herm Edwards and his clock management fiascos
    Many of their fans live in the NY and NJ
    They get the emotional roller coaster as the press over-hypes their players (Penny in 2002, D Rob the BBWK) and then they go on to fail
    They lost the Border War with the Pats...bigtime

    haha, good point. They're somewhat responsible for our title in 2001, that has to sting.

    Kotite was the WORST. How about when they tried Tony Meola (usa world cup goalie) out for punter? :eek:

    There is no reason for us to hate the jets. For the last couple of years they have consistently given us two guaranteed wins and the biggest reason to love them Mo Lewis.

    Hell Mo should be an honorary member of the Patriots hall of fame.

    Sorry to be a negative voice. If the Pats passing game isn't a heck

    of a lot better than in the Buffalo game, the Jets will win.
