So, apparently, Tom Brady tsk-tsked Patriots fans down in Foxborough today for leaving Sunday’s game vs. the Bengals during the fourth quarter, despite the fact that the team faced a comfortable lead.
“The road environment is very different than our friendly home crowd, who when I looked up, half the stadium was gone when we were up 21 points early fourth quarter, which I wasn’t so happy about,” Brady said. “I don’t think the Jets fans leave early. They’re going to be loud the whole game.”
Enter Dan Wetzel, the Yahoo! Sports columnist who was at Monday’s game between the Jets and Ravens at the new Meadowlands. Third paragraph:
“It was so ugly that Jets fans showed no faith in their team. They began filtering out of the new Meadowlands Stadium with four minutes left and New York trailing by a single point. This was the first insurmountable one-point lead in NFL history.”
Ah, yes, those Jets fans. Right, Tom?
