    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.

    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.

    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.

    You do realize that the Jets are ahead of 13 NFL teams who have never won a Super Bowl trophy?  This HC would want to give a trophy to a trophy-less team first, wouldn't he? He'd for sure be a legend there!  Just sayin'  Good thing it doesn't work that way.

    I feel like the old man who was released from prison in Shawshank Redemption. After 50 years of being in lockup, he couldn't handle freedom and hung himself.
     
    After 32 years of watching the Jets (mostly) lose, I don't know what I'd do if they won it all. Probably I would go into shock and die of a heart attack.

    I wish the Jets can be community owned like the Packers.  
    Woody Johnson makes me ill.

    Two AFC East division titles since the 1968 superbowl season.
    That's a pretty remarkable stat.
    What more do you people expect??? Isn't that enough??

    If Harvin stays healthy and shines, 5-7
     
    Otherwise, 3-9 at best.

    Most fans just don't get that it takes 3+ years for a new GM's plan to come to fruition.
    This draft was not so good. But Woody gave Rex 4 years to get back to winning, he should give Idzik the same amount of time.

    I don't have to remember how I feel now. It was burned into my memory early on.
    Suffering since 1981.

  11. pfilippone added a post in a topic Barnwell on Jets: They have a plan   

    This is only Idzik's 2nd year. Part of a good draft is also luck. Example: Just because McDougle was injured in college didn't foretell he would snap his ACL in training camp. Bad luck. Idzik gambled on that one and lost.
     
    Much as I hate to admit this, it's gonna be a few more years before we see positive results (hopefully) from Idzik's administration.

    I connect my laptop to my 60" TV via a VGA cable.  Then it's not so bad to watch streaming from a PC  
    But since we have a large group of Jets fans here, I usually go watch at the bar where they meet.  The only downside is a hoarse voice afterwards from all the J-E-T-S chants!

  15. pfilippone added a post in a topic I'm 61, When will Jets win next SuperBowl?   

    I fall into that unenviable category where I was alive for superbowl 3, but too young (4 yrs old) to care. Missed my once-in-a-lifetime chance it seems.
     
    Another random thought while I wait for training camp:
     
    The Jets of 1968 only had two playoff games: Beat the Raiders, beat the Colts. This was on top of a 14 game season.
    The Jets of 2009 and 2010 won two playoff games, and were still only halfway to a championship.
