[QUOTE]Jimmy Jack? any thoughts? Here is mine, we took the AFC East. We beat the consensus top 2 in our division. The two teams that everyone on this forum picked to represent the AFC East. And we are still on the upswing. We get Revis back. We get Pace back. We get Santonio Holmes? Are you kidding me? Everyone who said that we were going to start 0-3 or 1-2 at best better ask themselves. Are the Jets who you thought they are?

Now let's not get carried away. Lest you forget, the Broncos started last season 6-0. Now tell me, how did that work out for them? Surely they made the playoffs and won the Super Bowl, right?
This is why Jets fans like you get on my nerves so much. How on earth can you win the division after three games?! The Jets sucked for their first game, and played well in the other two. That's great, they're a good team. But to say that you have the division wrapped up three weeks into the season after beating your two main competitors is absurd. Keep in mind, you still have to play us in Gillette (which an astute follower of football such as yourself should quite easily recall the outcome of that one), and the Dolphins still have yet to come to New York (which, if I recall, didn't quite go your way either last year).
If recent history shows us anything, the eventual Super Bowl champion can come from virtually anywhere. I doubt you picked the Giants to win in '07 after week three. Did you think the Pats were going to win it all after week 3 in '01?
The bottom line is that it's way too early for such brash talk. If this was week 10 or 11, then your words might carry a little more weight. Keep in mind, the Chiefs are 3-0. Think your Jets will see them in the AFC Championship game? I mean, they DID beat San Diego, the unquiestioned favorite in the AFC West.
