    What does this mean for team NYJ?

    As great as this is to see the Pats lose, it sucks seeing the Giants win. But as Jets fans we need to do what we always do as Jets fans...hope. The Pats will probably go 14-2 next year but if the Giants can start 0-2, get to 10-6 and then get on this run, we need to hope that we will be able to follow suit. The front office needs to do some serious work and the players are going to work their tails off, but if things come together, why can't we do it?

    If anything, tonight provides the blueprint for how to defeat the Pats. It comes down to what many here have said since the beginning of the season- enhance and reinforce both front lines.

    A capable defensive line to apply direct pressure on Brady and limit their run option is neccesary.

    We posses an already sufficient secondary. We can concentrate on obtaining one.

    With an often erratic and unpredictable Manning winning tonight, it proves that a decent QB with a better then average line will hold his own against the Pats. Concentrate on the line and all else will fall into place on offense.

    Best of all, it gives us confidence in our chances for next season.

    Tonight's game has zero significance to the New York Jets. Tonight is about teh Giants winning, and much, much, much, much more importantly about Belichick and co tucking tail in defeat and running away.

    Giant fans are way less annoying than pat fans. Most of them don't even wear Giant gear, they where suits. Besides I kind of feel good for Eli. He's so non theatening. Very humble, married his highschool sweetheart. Kind of like the anti-Brady.

    See, the Giants winning is a double edged sword. As happy as I am tonight that the Patriots lost, I am going to be equally pissed off and depressed tomorrow when again realize that we, as Jets fans, are pushed that much further down the NY sports landscape, and for that matter, the national spotlight.

    Kudos to the Giants and a much appreciated win, but it's a Band-Aid to the wounds that we call being a Jets fan.

    Afterall, is the Giants winning the Super
    Bowl for the 3rd time since we won ours (same as the Pats...) any better for our psyche?

    The Giants defeating the Patriots means absolutely nothing in terms of the New York Jets football team.

    The Patriots were still perfect in the AFC and they are the team to beat.

    IT was great watching them come oh so close to perfection yet falling oh so short.

    everyone i feel is hiding behind feelings of joy because the pats lost thier perfection. tell ya thats great and all but lets be honest we are going to play second fiddle to the giants now until we win a SB plain and simple and from the looks of things we look a ways off and the giants look young and talented.

    until we can prove we are a championship grade team the shadow of the giants that has been cast over this team will continue to grow.... if it can get any bigger than it was cast tonight.

    I am a Chicago Cubs fan. When the White Sox won the World Series a couple of years ago, the following year the Cubs spent nearly $300 million on impending free agents as well actual free agents. It put alot of pressure for the northsiders to win now. Along with a 100 year drought.

    ...by Mangini converting to the 4-3 and drafting Sedrick Ellis.

    But, we know Mangini is a stubborn SOB that is fitting square pegs into round holes.

    By converting to a 4-3 now we would be hurting the team. We were only good in 2004 in the 4-3 so whats the point? We are closer to having a good defense in the 3-4 then 4-3.

    I disagree, were no closer to the 3-4, too many pieces missing. Lacking another Stout ILB, OLB(3-4) and true NT.

    We draft Sedrick Ellis.......You have D-Rob and Sedrick Ellis at DT. Vilma goes back to the middle and David Harris on the strong-side.

    Not true all we need is a OLB and NT. In a 4-3 we still have no pass rushers.

    We can agree to disagree, right now we are no closer to being successful in the 3-4 than when Mangini took over this team. I'd take Sedrick Ellis and D-Rob at DT in a 4-3 and a "HEALTHY" Vilma back in the middle in a heartbeat. Sean Ellis would be a better 4-3 end IMO.

    Most fans are assuming. And expecting. The Pats to be the top favorite to get back to the Super Bowl again. Not such an easy thing to do. Especially when you've just had the Heart torn out from your chest. Ask the Chicago Bears. And the Colts couldn't even make it back to the AFC title game this year.

    Three years ago. The Yankees. Loaded with mercenaries that "Boss" Steinbrenner had hired. Were up, 3-1, against the Red Sox, in the AL championship game. Going into the last inning in game #5. Mariano Rivera there to close out the game. And the Sox. Yanks didn't get it done. Same scenario in game #6. They went on to blow the series. It was a mortal wound that the Yankees have yet to recover from. And each year. They seem less capable than the year before. Of getting back to the World Series.

    Pats are starting to resemble this Yankees persona. Loaded with talent. But maybe not as close a team as they used to be. Not as confident as before. As each of the last three years have led to crushing defeats. Especially the last two years to the Mannings. And this last one. Against the definately less talented Giants. Pats were just about to claim greatest NFL Team immortality. Only to have it crash down on them in shocking defeat. This could be as mortal a blow. As the one the Red Sox leveled at the Yankees. never to be the same confident team again.

    Maybe Pats make it to the playoffs. But their confidence has been definately shaken. And other teams are hungrier. Now eager to knotch a playoff win against the Pats. Like Mike Tyson. Who lost his invincible persona. Nobody is going to fear the Pats any longer. Pats were too much of a passing circus. Not as legit a NorthEast football team that they've been in the past. Giants are a true lunch pail NorthEast team. Stopped the Pats run game. And went after Brady with a vengeance.

    IMO. They're going to start to fall back to the pack. Lots of changes take place with teams during the offseason. Even with teams that made it to the Supe. And so will Jets with Draft/FA/Trades. Jets will be a better team next year. Better at the LOS. And we'll play the Pats with confidence. We can split with them next year.

    Then in 2009. We can take the division.

    The Belichick and the Pats era is coming to an end.
