Rarely do I let my fandom get in the way of reality, but if there was ever a moment in time where that was the case it's when I foolishly bet the house on the Jets reaching a Super Bowl in the 2011-12 season. The Jets were riding high going into the season with Rex Ryan preaching he wouldn’t kiss Bill Belichick’s rings and back-to-back AFC appearances had me falling for the immense hype. The result?
