In response to pauldeba's comment:
well, that time of year has arrived, every year since January, 1969. It is offically See Ya Next Year - Same 'Ole Jets, no Rudolph coming to rescue the Land of Misfit QBs and coaches, no Rich Kotite comments on eery parallels with his 2 year tenure with the Puke Green Jesters, but here are some fun tidbits of the sorry Franchise that has crowned themselves "Patriots' Rivals":
Tebow had higher QB Rating than Sanchez in spite of not having a completion
The last time the Jets went to the Super Bowl, there were still a handful of Japanese soldiers holding out fighting world war II in the Philippines and Guam
The President of the US was Lyndon Johnson the day that the Jest last went to the Super Bowl
There was a player on the last Jets franchise to go to the Super Bowl born in 1930
Joe Namath has a much higher career interception ratio than Mark Sanchez, and Mark Sanchez has a better record as starting QB
Jets “Hall of Fame” Coach Weeb Ewbank only had 2 winning seasons in his 11 seasons coaching the Jets
Since 1970, the Jets have only won the AFC East outright only once without using tiebreakers –even the Lions, Cardinals, Jaguars, Bengals, Buccaneers, Panthers and Texans have won more without using the tiebreaker. NO ONE has done this poorly
The Jets are probably the only team in history to be eliminated from playoff contention on a fumbled snap with their season on the line.
Rich Kotite was once Buddy Ryan's Offensive Coordinator and they went to the playoffs
Mark Sanchez still dates supermodels while pretending not to be gay
Clearly an amazing set of facts. I had to make this my wallpaper!
