Party Crashers

Behind their ground game and defense, the Jets become bolder and better each step of the way


As the Jets' buses rolled up to the team's San Diego hotel last Friday night, a feeling of dread came over assistant head coach Bill Callahan. The Hyatt Regency La Jolla, he was thinking, the same place the Raiders stayed seven years ago when I coached them in the Super Bowl.... Callahan was flashing back to the week when Oakland center Barret Robbins, battling depression, went AWOL and wound up in a drug- and alcohol-induced stupor in Tijuana, and the rattled Raiders lost 48--21 to Tampa Bay. The franchise has never recovered. "Bad karma," Callahan said later of his feelings on the bus. "I thought, We may have to do an exorcism."

No, they didn't. The Jets entered their AFC divisional playoff against the Chargers with a running game
