    [quote user="giantyankee1976"]I'm guessing offshoot of the Spike Lee Jets/Giants thread

    i.e

    the Jets were put back in the consciousness of the Boards

    that said, it occurred to me 3 things:

    1) Metlife Stadium, Giants Stadium Central

    2) Cowboys Stadium, Giants Stadium South

    3) Lambeau Field, Giants Stadium North

    a bit brash but I could care less at this point.
    the
    thing is there are times when being a fan of a Team that seemingly
    never gets kudos, or respect, can be fun to the point of giddy
    silliness.

    t<font size="4">he crime is when others are too sour to allow a "fellow fan" his or her moment of genuine joy.

    Joy over what? Making it to a championship game? Isn't that
    whatJets' fansdo -- get excited about just making it to a championship
    game?</p>

    I hear you...karma

    that's why I'm trying to deal lightly with this week's fresh crop of trolls.

    but damn they're getting uglier and ruder by the day.

    At least the Giants have made it PAST the Championship game four times since the last time the Jets did it in 1969.

    Here's hoping for #5!!

    I believe this will be the last game played in Candlestick as I thought I heard their new stadium will be ready for next season

Here's hoping for #5!![/quote]I askeda reasonable Jetfriend about this very topic of "making it to the conference championship game" being such a source of pride for them (which most of us don't understand). He said that they have been so starved for any success for so long that it means alot to them. He said that just playing in January felt so good compared to the normal crash and burn ending they had become used to. </P>


    BTW Sanchez is running very short on time to show whether his on field play can match his fashion spreads. He learned from the worst possilbementor in media starved Rex. He desparately needs a grown up in that locker room to show him how a true professional handles themself in the off season, during practice, on game day etc.</P>

    This. That franchise has been so snake-bitten that they have bites on their bites. It's a litany of tragic failures for them, an endless parade of unthinkable waiting-for-the-other-shoe-to-drop paranoia and persecution.

    Much like the Eagles, this makes them lose all perspective and over-celebrate moral victories because that's the only kind they get.

    I can name several dozen of these "Same Old Jets" moments -- some of my favorite all-timers would be:

    <ul>[*]Was it 2009, last game of the season for the AFC East title at home against the Dolphins, they lose to the QB they discarded (Chad Pennington) to get Brett Favre. [*]Bill Belichick was their head coach for 24 hours. Took the job when Parcells stepped down, resigned one day later. Only went on to win 3 SBs in New England while the Jets were in a tailspin for a decade.[*]The Marino "fake spike" game in the 90s -- kicking the Dolphins' asses in a romp when they allow the comeback. Marino leads a drive downfield with time running out and no time outs, he motions like he's going to spike the ball to kill the clock somewhere around the 20 and instead throws the game-winning TD.[*]In 1986 they were in the playoffs and beating Cleveland when Gastineau commits the worst, stupidest personal foul after a play is over, which keeps Cleveland's drive alive and they win the game.[/list]

    </p>

    They live with that kind of jinx all the time. So of course they've lost all perspective when it comes to success.

    It's on me, I'm so sick of the Jet's constantly creating issues with NYG, when all we do is mind our business and take care of our business.

    Point made today...Rex Ryan has the nerve to take credit for NYG turnaround based on Rex's idiotic comments. I just want the Jets to disappear from the newspapers and media completely. This is our time to bask in the spotlight, we have earned that right.
