FROM THE JAWS OF VICTORY: It was a simple plea for the NY Jets: lose with dignity. But even that turned out to be too much.

At first, it seemed that the Jets would do the unthinkable and defeat the 15-1 Pittsburgh Steelers. Then they missed two field goals in the last two minutes of regulation. The Steelers won in overtime.

Had they simply lost a fair fight, I would have been satisfied. The Steelers are the best team in football. But why tempt one's fans so cruelly with the prospect of victory? We are haunted by the ghost of Michael Dukakis.
