    Yes, but didn't watch it. I was 4 yrs old
  1. Here's hoping Petty provides a spark that brings this team back from the dead. 10-6 here we come!! </homer>
  2. It's been tough to watch the product they have been putting out on the field this season. But as others have said, there's only 4 months of football per year, and I love the sport. And I'm loyal to this team to my own detriment. Perhaps once we are mathematically eliminated from playoff contention, Bowles will finally give Petty and maybe even Hackenburg a shot.
  3. Congrats to the Cubs. What a huge monkey they just got off their backs! But what about the few of us who don't enjoy baseball, basketball, hockey? I was stupid enough to put all my eggs in the J-E-T-S basket. Ugh.. 35 years I've been following this team. I was bored today, so I put together a list of all the NFL teams and their championship droughts. The Jets are in 11th place in terms of longest championship drought. Don't you feel better knowing the Cardinals have been waiting 21 years longer than us? I sure don't. NFL Team Most recent championship Drought in years Cardinals 1947 NFL Championship 69 Lions 1957 NFL Championship 59 Eagles 1960 NFL Championship 56 Vikings ---- 55 Titans 1961 AFL Championship 55 Chargers 1963 AFL Championship 53 Browns 1964 NFL Championship 52 Bills 1965 AFL Championship 51 Falcons ---- 50 Bengals ---- 48 Jets 1968 Super Bowl III 48 Chiefs 1969 Super Bowl IV 47 Dolphins 1973 Super Bowl VIII 43 Raiders 1983 Super Bowl XVIII 33 Bears 1985 Super Bowl XX 31 Redskins 1991 Super Bowl XXVI 25 49ers 1994 Super Bowl XXIX 22 Jaguars ---- 21 Panthers ---- 21 Cowboys 1995 Super Bowl XXX 21 Rams 1999 Super Bowl XXXIV 17 Texans ---- 14 Buccaneers 2002 Super Bowl XXXVII 14 Colts 2006 Super Bowl XLI 10 Steelers 2008 Super Bowl XLIII 8 Saints 2009 Super Bowl XLIV 7 Packers 2010 Super Bowl XLV 6 Giants 2011 Super Bowl XLVI 5 Ravens 2012 Super Bowl XLVII 4 Seahawks 2013 Super Bowl XLVIII 3 Patriots 2014 Super Bowl XLIX 2 Broncos 2015 Super Bowl 50 1 EDIT: What if you count AFC/NFC Championship wins? Then the Jets suck even more! We are then in third place in the list of suckitude...

  4. This is such sad news to hear. Byrd was two years younger than me. Another one of 35,000 deaths on US roads this year. Driverless cars can't get here soon enough IMHO. RIP
  5. At least once or twice a year someone brings up the topic of alternate jerseys. People yea or nay the ideas that come up, then the thread dies. I have a theory: Those that grew up watching the Jets wear a certain jersey become attached to that jersey. I started watching the Jets in 1981. Sack Exchange, anyone? I would not mind if the Jets wore the jerseys from that era once in a blue moon. It could not possibly suck any more than the Titans jerseys. I also think the metallic green on the helmets they tried last year with the "rush colors" was actually a nice change of pace. On a slightly related topic: Anyone know if it's possible to purchase a Jets cap like the one Bowles and Forte wore recently? It's black with the green Jets logo from the 80's. Peace out.
  6. Interesting punting style. I hadn't seen a rugby-style punt in american football before. It seems like it might have some success in the NFL, until teams start to game plan against it. It seems like the punt can more easily be blocked if the punter holds on to the ball for so long.
  7. Can someone explain how the Jets went from tons of cap-room last year to being in cap hell this year? - Was the GM's plan last year to win it all in his 1st year with Geno/Fitz and to hell with next year? - Did league rules require we spend every penny? Many of us praise Maccagnan for what he's done so far. But why is the poor cap room situation not on him? Granted, with Brick retiring, this topic may already be moot. But please humor me.
  8. I hope Bowles and Maccagnan make the right choice if they decide to trade Coples. Like John Abraham, Jonathan Vilma, and other past Jets trades, I don't want to find out Coples becomes an All Pro with another team.
  9. I thought it would be fun to dredge up a thread from 2007. Jets' 2007 1st round pick: Darelle Revis Jets' 2008 1st round pick: Vernon Gholston Discuss.
  10. Nicely written article, but methinks we can't call Amaro a bust just yet. Interstate of green - Your interstate connection to everything JETS and EAGLES" - finally! A site dedicated to fans of both the jets and eagles! FffffsdsdCONNECTION TO EVERYTHING JETS AND EAGLES"
  11. Keeping Geno on the bench has two benefits (1) Bowles would be crucified if he put Geno in now and the Jets start losing.Too risky. Only Chip Kelly makes moves like that. (2) Sitting Geno gives him a a big slice of humble pie. Just what he needed after two years of being the presumed starter. In my dream world, Fitz is the reason we lose to the Pats the first time, and Geno is the reason why we win the 2nd time.
  12. Fun fact: The 1968 Jets "only" had to beat the Raiders in the playoffs, then the Colts in the Super Bowl to take home the trophy. The 2009 and 2010 Jets won two playoff games each year, and didn't even make it to the Super Bowl.
  13. I was 4 yrs old. Didn't know a football from a cowpie. My dad bought me a kid size Jets helmet. I had no clue what a Jet was.
  14. Good teams create their own opportunities. They overcome bad calls. I'm still trying to wrap my head around the fact that the Jets have won their division only twice in the past 44 years.
