You know what teams are hated? Patriots, Steelers, Cowboys, Giants.
What's the common theme there? They win Superbowls.
I wish we were hated for that reason. But we're not. We're irrelevant to most NFL fans. The last thing we should be doing is caring how our team is perceived by the rest of the country based on our own misguided perceptions of the rest of the country.
This is so true. All my friends around the country who root for NFL teams actually feel bad for us. They keep asking me what is going on with our team. They want us to go back to the old Jets from a couple years ago. They don't hate us at all. But, they do hate the Giants.
