    I can’t say I feel bad for pat fans. They sound like a bunch of sore losers. I think the Jets should some heart. I thought they we’re gonna lose but showed they wanted it more. Pats have been to the superbowl. It’s time to let another team get that chance. I will keep my fingers crossed that the Jets make it all the way but if not I will not be crying like the Pats fans are.
