Things aren't going great in New York City. 

The Giants and Jets have combined to go 0-6 to start the 2021 NFL season and, as you might imagine, the teams' fans are not happy about it. Take a look:

Jets fans weren’t asking for a Cinderella playoff run this season. We just want something to look forward to on Sundays … a whiff of progress … a dash of hope.<br><br>The organization has failed to clear a bar that is nearly on the floor. <a href="https://t.co/Po8I7QCJRF">https://t.co/Po8I7QCJRF</a>

Wow. The fans are booing Giants co-owner John Mara as he officially retires Eli Manning's No. 10.<br><br>Eli tries to wave at them to quiet them down. ... But wow.

"Of course I heard it," John Mara said after the ceremony, per Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News. "Listen, I would have booed, too. We're 0-2 and down at the half."

Woof. 

But, hey, who could blame them? Take a look at this bleak stat:

Records since the start of the 2017 season:<br><br>Jets: 18-49<br>Giants: 18-49<br><br>Tied for the worst record in the NFL. <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/Jets?src=hash&amp;ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#Jets</a> <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/Giants?src=hash&amp;ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#Giants</a>

That's... obviously not great, and New York sports fans have never had a reputation for being warm and fuzzy when their teams aren't playing well. It's going to be a long football season in the Big Apple.
