How did you cope during the Kotite years?

We've got this place to commiserate because of our genius head coach this time. Its a wonderful way to exercise our demons of the green 'n white variety. But back then, probably most of us didn't have the internet, or large groups of Jets fans to share our pain. So I ask, during those dark years way back in the stone(d) age, what did you do to keep yourself from giving up on this incompetent football team?

I'm not old enough to remember Kotite, but i would assume that the Yankees and Knicks doing well probably numbed the pain.

Season ticket holder back then who attended every home game regardless of weather, opponent,game time  and stayed until the clock was at 00:00. 

It's what you do as a fan of the NY Jets you take the good times with the bad like any other thing in life. 

NY Jets fans are the most resilient fans in the NFL and NY Jets fans are predominately good people for the most part. 

Things can't get any worse and can only get better 0-16 is needed for this organization to get a wake up call it desperately needs. 

If the Johnson brothers cant handle it then sell the team, doubt that happens because it seems like its all about the money for them win or lose. 

Imagine the day when we all will be able to celebrate a Super Bowl victory, I'm actually hoping for a dynasty and long successful run at  being NFL Champions multiple years.

I'm not sure i agree with this. We're living around the greatest city in the world. There's always something else to do. 

 

It's not like the Jets are the only show in town. They're one of many distractions.

 

Take a look at Cleveland sports fans. Now those guys are resilient. As there's nothing else going on, the overall sense of misery must be far stronger.

If you are a fan and you stick with this organization you are resilient.

I was a teenager. I spent those years consoling my dad. We watched the games together -- this was before the NC Jets fan club was formed -- in random bars around town, whichever one was ramshackle enough to put the Jets on that week in Raleigh. You couldn't even call ahead they'd always just say "we have to see what the crowd looks like." The bartenders hated us because he doesn't drink and we would nurse unlimited refill sweet teas all game. I was a young and optimistic sunshiner in those days, I still remember when I'd tell him "they'll get better," he'd just put his hand on my shoulder and shake his head. Probably from guilt knowing what he had condemned me to.

I was young enough to still have enthusiasm for EVERY Jet game. Every Sunday felt like a holiday.

Coslet and Kotite led to Hess finally giving in and going after Parcells. Unfortunately even at 0-16 I don’t think it’s going to light a fire under Woodys ass to bring in a guy to run the entire show to clean it up.

Which I find to be ridiculous !! How does any owner of a business or a franchise for that matter not want to be successful? Woody is a dickhead and needs to sell but that is wishful thinking.

He has nothing else to do. No company to run. No business empire to manage. His wife probably insists he goes to One Jets Drive everyday.
