Dustin Keller always has been a staunch supporter of his quarterback, and good friend, Mark Sanchez.

Well, the Jets tight end took to Twitter after Thursday night's game to air his frustrations.

"Terrible performance 2day PERIOD, but 4 anybody that cheered when @Mark_Sanchez was down(pat or Jet fan)U R ridiculous & aren't real fans!!!"

Sanchez, who looked brilliant in last week's 23-17 win over the Rams, threw for 301 yards against New England. But he also committed two turnovers -- a first-quarter interception on the Jets' second drive of the game and a fumble (off Brandon Moore's butt) that was recovered by the Patriots and returned for a touchdown. 

The boos for Sanchez and chants for backup quarterback Tim Tebow grew louder as the game got out of hands -- i.e., 35-0 in the second quarter. 

Sanchez, however, seemed less bothered by the negative fan reaction than Keller.

"There's nothing you can do about that except play better," the Jets starting quarterback said, when asked about if the boos bother him. 

Sanchez went on to say that he blocks out the calls for Tebow -- just as he's been doing all season long.

"I don't think about it," he said. "I just keep playing, keep fighting for our guys and just continue to work. Try to get better and eliminate some of these mistakes that have hurt us."
