Do you even remember exciting JETS football?

Recommended Posts

Watching some close finishes; big plays, big throws - high stakes stuff. 

Do you remember what that was like? Can you even visualize Darnold shotgun'ing the rock 30 yards on a back shoulder fade w/ 12 seconds left? 

I get even picture the JETS playing NFL football.

2015 for the first 16 weeks.  2009-10.  2008 for the first 11 weeks.  

That's been it.  Over a 13-year period.

I am finally getting old enough to start to feel the apathy so many old-timers have told me about over the years.

I mean, u can only watch this trash for so long. You definitely care less after a while.

Don't it always seem to go, you don't know what you got til it's gone.

Yes. I remember the 2011 playoffs. I remember Braylons big catch to set up a winning field goal in Indy. I remember the Jets holding off the Steelers in Pitt during the regular season in the snow. I remember Cro's miraculous onside kick return in New England. The last time Jets fans had excitement was when Rex Ryan was our HC. I'd love to see those days return...

Exciting in terms of edge of your seat. Rex Ryan days. Exciting in brand of football exciting has to go back when. Tom Brady was playing peewee football. And we had Kenny O throwing to toon and walker. And freeman running the rock. Wow

Oh, I will be, and I will always care.

 

But I definitely care a little less than I used to.

2010 was the last time. Now we play pussy ball with second rate players that won't be in the league next season.

If Rex had a good Ozzie Newsome type GM that could have gotten more players that fit the mold of that 09-10 team they would be where Baltimore is today, always competing for a championship. How frustrating for your season to over after the first quarter most years.

Even though we had tons if losses, I loved the days of watching Obie throw to Toon and Walker.   Also loved 1998.    Just missed.

Man that 2010 Jets team were something. There were actual expectations and we lived up to them. Eventually. 

I remember predicting on here that we would be destroyed by the Pats in Foxboro only to beat them in the playoffs. Only the Jets.
