New York and Boston newspapers have some of the best headline writers in the country, but not even they could convey the magnitude of the Patriots' loss to the New York Jets as concisely and eloquently as the New Orleans Times-Picayune did Monday.
In what appears to be a placeholder headline that was never replaced, the Times-Picayune used the headline below on the jump page of their story about the Patriots' loss to the Jets in the AFC Divisional playoffs.
It happens. Mistakes slip through the cracks. But you've got to wonder whether this headline didn't just capture the mood of Patriots fans pretty darn perfectly.
