Such dispassion from the Jets fanbase for a Pats game would never have been allowed to stand were Rex still alive.

Murder them all.

Directv is showing that I get the game in Los Angeles!!! Best non purchase of Sunday ticket ever. Think I got every game but one or two this year.

Merry Christmas everyone.

Kill them in the eyeball.

Merry Christmas everyone. Well, except to our resident Jets fans.

My theory is that CBS sends Dan Fouts to games where the announcing teams are most likely to be muted, so that the rest of the country won't have to listen to him. I don't have any proof, though, so it's mere conjecture.

Wasting internet packets...bah, humbug!

Jam the Jets.
I was having trouble getting my head and ass wired together post Christmas...……….was trying to make a point about how Jets fans are like the French Army in WWII; both are finished before they start, but it went sideways...…………….

Anyway, beat these sad sacks and get the #2 seed locked down already.

Oh, we can handle those Germans no problem (well, we beat them in WWI, right?).

Um..16K KIA, 40K POW keeping the germans off the BEF at Dunkirk....quibble about their leadership (kinda like the US in every war since WWII), but the French soldier was as brave as any other soldier in WWII.

Um.....not so sure about that; through no fault of the average French soldier, they took a beating in WWI and were tapped out in 1940.

Right; leadership, just like in the Franco Prussian War, another war they got demolished in where their weapons, namely the chassepot rifle and milletrause gatling gun were far superior than anything the Prussians had, the French did a poor job of mobilizing their forces/using the railway network in place like the Prussians did.

The French Char B tank was far superior than any German tank at the time in 1940, yet the Germans went right through them on the way to Paris.

"WR/KR/RB Cordarrelle Patterson was a limited participant in practice all week -- including Wednesday's light walkthrough -- which would seem to give him longer odds of playing in Sunday's finale against the Jets. The Patriots are officially listing him as questionable along with TE Dwayne Allen (knee), swing OT LaAdrian Waddle (illness) and core special teamer Brandon King (knee), while No. 3 TE/core special teamer Jacob Hollister (hamstring) has already been ruled out."

Jets are down two of their better pass catchers, Kearse and Enunwa. Also won’t have Claiborne at corner.

Darnold has been playing well enough to make do, but it’s gonna be tough to feed the ball to Roberts and Herndon all day. Pats are gonna wipe Anderson off the map and say ‘good luck’.

On offense, I wanna see some signs of life from the passing game. It helps that they aren’t facing a top passing defense this week; Buffalo is legit.

Darnold has played like a top 5 QB the last 3 weeks.

Time to put the rookie back in his place.

WIN

It’s likely that Trumaine Johnson will be inactive and Darryl Roberts will miss the first half both for disciplinary issues. This is on top of Morris Claiborne already being inactive due to injury. If they can’t put up numbers on this secondary they have real issues.

Okay, first time I checked this thread in a few days. Suffice to say this back-and-forth cannot be found at thegangreen.com.

For instance...
[New England is to the NFL what Ted Kennedy was to Mary Jo Kopechne. Think about it: they've cheated the game at ever turn just like Teddy-the-drunkard cheated M-Jo out of life. But since you provincial, racist sots excused 'The Lion' back then it stands to reason that you'd have no problem giving the Foxborough Frauds the same pass. Wicked.

Your pill-popping owner's disrespecting poor ashes-to-dust Myra and your coach???.....he's a philandering, home-wrecking cheat who taught his affected QB how to cheat as well.

Stop cheating.

For onCe.
Or...,referring to post from a self-proclaimed 40-year Pats fan non-aggressively musing about the Jets’ motivation for winning today because draft pick...
Haha,40 years huh? Love hearing this type of crap locally.As if the fact yall couldnt even name a player on the team & couldve cared less about football till Parcells.And guess what? THAT STILL MEANS YOUVE BEEN ROOTING FOR A CHEATER FOR ABOUT 20!! Dont talk to us about loyalty,decency & the like.You have no idea.

There isnt a Jet fan alive who would root for that crooked cheat Brady or the rest of the reptiles off 495. Get over yourselves & quit hiding under a rock.Your team is despised by anyone w a brain & any sense of reasonability. Any percieved fan of 40 years would realize that.40 months is more like it.

CBS could go pick two random people off the street and they would be better than Eagle and Fouts. We can only hope they aren't brought back next season.
