Statistically speaking, there is no Jets home turf. but do you want my (stupid) conspiracy theory answer? cause you're not going to like it It's the curse of Joe Willy. the league is still not over the Jets winning SB 3. 54 years ago and the crew cut types aren't over it. what I mean by this is that Joe WIlly's guarantee wasn't just a guess it was an informed opinion from his "goodfellas" that he'd eventually go into the bar business with... the Colts were touched to not cover the 17 and things got out of hand that embarrassment to the league has been buried deep, like Goodell destroying Pats video tapes and other bad for business secrets. But the owners who were alive for that are still very powerful and hate Joe Willy and his mink coats and pantyhose ads fast forward decades later, he's groping Suzy Kolber on national TV a part of my brain that I admit is not rational, doesn't expect Jets luck to changes until Joe Willy passes from this mortal coil. and maybe not even then. The Jets are a heel and have been branded as such. teams like the Giants and Pats are Captain America, Sgt Slaughter The Jets are the Iron Sheik I don't know what exactly the league has against Paul Brown and the Bengals, but I'm sure it's something Bubba smith talked about the flea flicker where Morrall never looks at the wide open receiver that was the target of the play and the 3 red zone picks. Morrall may have thrown it and Namath found out from his bookie pals. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
