Life for a Jets fan must be tough. Something the folks at our Jets blog, Gang Green Nation, knows all too well.
On Sunday, New York lost the AFC Championship game, 30-17, continuing decades of futility.
Make it 41 years and counting. An unlikely run came to the end today in Indianapolis. The Jets fought their hearts out, but the best player in football had his way with the defense in the second half.
You can say it was an incredible run considering the team had a rookie quarterback and a rookie head coach. You can say all considered, it was a heck of a run, especially given the struggles the Jets had in the middle of the year.You can say this team has a very bright future with a promising young quarterback. You would be right, but it just wasn't quite enough this year. [...]
I'm sure in a few weeks, we'll be able to look back on this season with a smile and be proud of the team. Right now, though, it just hurts. It's another blown double digit lead just like that 1998 AFC Championship in Denver. The Jets aren't AFC Champions. The Colts were better today. Peyton Manning might be the best ever in football. And it hurts.
