Default Jets. We Gave Em' Holmes, We Gave Em' The Last Game... That's It !

They got Santonio Holmes for a "5th" round draft pick of an untested rookie coming out of college. Since, Tone has caught 3 or 4 clutch TD passes that won them games (that won them "several" games). Holmes for a 5th round draft pick. Gift # 1. That was bad.
When we played the Jets in the regular season, they REALLY needed that game just to make it to the playoffs. They won and made it to the playoffs basically off of our backs.
True. We didn't have Troy or Heath, but in a sense, we helped them get into the playoffs. An opponent in our same conference that we are likely (and are) to meet in the playoffs got there via the Steelers. Gift # 2. That was bad.
In addition, in that game on the last drive by the Steelers, Sanders was "clearly" interfered with by a defender when he was focused in on a TD catch (which would have won us the game) that was perfectly thrown and headed straight to him. The penalty was not called. Did we complain ? No. That was bad, but what could we do after the fact ? They've been running on that momentum from that game ever since. That was bad.
Now, I don't know about the rest of you, but I'm tired of "hooking-up" the Jets... It's time for the Steeler's to collect something from them; a trip to the Super Bowl in Dallas. I think that'll be good.
