The 2008 season ended with the Jets losing 4 out of 5 games (Denver, at San Francisco, at Seattle, Miami) after starting 8-3 and coming off wins at the 10-0 undefeated Tennessee Titans and at the 6-3 Patriots.
Easily one of the most painful finishes to a season for Jets fans in recent memory. Hell even the 1 game we won in that span we pulled out of our a** with a late fumble recovery for a TD (Ellis and Elam were the players that forced/returned it) playing at home against a half a$$ Bills team.
Those games make yesterday's loss in Pitt look like a day at the beach.
Probably the most frustrating / painful game in my 29 years on this earth as a Jets fan has to be Week One of the 1999 season against New England when Vinny tore his ACL, MCL, PCL, anyCL possible and was done for the year.
That team had so much potential, what a devastating loss. Tom friggin Tupa finished the game with more pass yards and TDs than Testaverde did......not even Nostradamus saw that one coming.
Lord some people are such drama queens on here. We've had much worse losses and we were playing a team we rarely beat. Yeah the offense sucked, but there's 14 games left in this season, we're tied for 1st in what appears so far as an up for grabs AFC East, and we play the dolphins this weekend.
Atlanta in December of 2009 at that time was the worst regular season loss ever...Only scored 7 points when we were in Atlanta territory over 50% of the game...3 field goal attempts screwed up, Kellen Clemens bad hold, one blocked and Jay Feely shank...Matt Ryan goes down the field with 2 minutes to go and hits Tony G for the winner on 4th down...our playoff chances were at 5% going into a 14-0 Indy team next week, Rex said we were out of the playoffs
I understand we made a ton of mental mistakes, but we were outclassed here in week 2...Only 26 years old but can remember 10+ more frusterating games than this
