    I will be home

    I sold my tickets. I didnt ask if they were Jets fans (really, would Jets fans be buying tickets to this game??), I dont really care. I will be home with the family, maybe get a fire going, watch it on tv. I will be there with my whole family,

    not just the one I have the 2nd ticket for, because 2 is all that I can afford.

    I will not go to Shop-Rite and spend money on food for the tailgate. No loading up the truck with my Jets canopy, Jets chairs, tables, and grill, no bin with all the tailgate essentials, plates, tablecloths, all that.

    I wont be bothered with making sure I get to the game early so that I can get my favorite spot along the blue fence in 17E.

    No getting searched by security guards for me this week.

    No buying a $4.75 bottle of soda and having the vender remove abd keep the cap, thus ensuring my 7 year old will spill it in less than 5 minutes.

    I wont be there for the National Anthem, making sure my son learns to remove his cap and place it over his heart.

    And most importantly, I wont be there to watch this joke of a product that has annoyed and frustrated me every single year since 1977. If my Father had not answered that newspaper add that announced Jets season tickets were available back then, today I would still be a pretty content Pittsburgh Steeler fan.

    Thats ok, Dad, the time we have spent together at these games has been more important than a winning team. And the thrills I got as a kid, even as an adult, meeting alot of these Jets over the years is something I will never forget.

    Its my son, he's the one I have to apoligize to. 7 years old, went to his first pre-season game at 6 months, been going with me regulary since he was 5, even works the grill....he's the one who got screwed, a Jet fan because of me, I'm sorry buddy.

    is there such a thing as losing with honor??? maybe in certain aspects in life but definitly not in the nfl...... teach your son what matters in life and he will understand why he is a jet fan at heart...... because through all of this we still hold our heads up high and we fight until there is no fight left in us... god bless you and all the jet families this holiday year!!!!!

    Hey, whatever floats your boat.

    But you know deep down that you are going to REGRET it when the Pats lose to the Bills and we are playing for the division. With all of the doom and gloom going around the boards this week, people forget that there is a possibility of a division championship with a GB 2002 type of atmosphere.

    Of course, there's always the possibility of disappointment as well. But never say never. The Jets always seem to do best when they are down and everyone is counting them out.

    I fear that this will be the angriest Meadowlands crowd in recent history, on Sunday.

    I think so too... This has all the makings of a legendary "Fire Eric" chant... or a legendary Jets making the playoffs against all odds.

    Either way, I'm not missing something this amusing.

    Other predicitions:

    If the NE/Buff game is close early... "LETS GO BUFFALO"

    No doubt. My uncle is also a season ticket holder (now living in Houston, but still has the tickets) and he always packed his heat to games. He was with the DEA and now he's with Homeland Security. God bless ya.

    I don't blame you one bit Jim and was thinking of you & your family last week as I was decorating my little NY Jets tree with the ornaments you gave me for Christmas. How sad & upsetting that a die hard fan and loyal family like yours is throwing in the towel.

    Merry Christmas guys and have a frosty cold, one on me in front of the toasty fireplace and big screen TV. ;) I'll be out at Troop 16H, maybe for the last time & honoring my commitment to my fellow tailgaters and the Pat Tillman Foundation.
