Give me your analysis, Gronk. Jets just a better team? Rex outcoach Belichick? Sanchez outplay Brady? What say you on "the day after"?
I personally think you merely dish out what is served to you here. At least you bring out the best, and worst, from us.
I had no idea after 6 December that my sig would only be up for a month. It seems so long ago today.
As to my take on the game, not sure I can give you a good analysis as the sting is still new, but Jets were indeed the better team yeaterday. The D took away our outside receivers and with the added Safety in the middle they clogged those routes pretty well too. I hated the Pats play calling. Too little Gronk, Hernandez was a no-show, both of whom you really don't have an answer to. I didn't like the fake punt. Too many running plays with the clock winding down. Too much Woodhead and not enough BJGE. Brady played like crap. The young D looked it. Rob's advice to Rex certainly paid dividends. I could write a book, but it was the perfect storm for the Jets. Enjoy basking in the sunshine. I mean that. But for all you taunt-boys out there, remember one thing. Lose next week and yesterday is meaningless. So try and act like you've been here before.
we are FANS, none of us has ever "been there before" -- win or lose, we're all watching at home in front of the TV. we get to enjoy it today because we won, just like you would've enjoyed it greatly had the Pasts* won yesterday.
and no, regardless of what happens next week, yesterday won't be meaningless.
There are sore losers and sore winners. Then there are gracious winners like the OP. If you don't know the distinction, that says more about you than anything else.
And you're telling me that the Jets organization, all its players and coaches, as well as the fan base, should be happy with the season even if they get blown out next week all because they beat the Pats in week 2 of the playoffs? Puh-leeze.
Enjoy your NFL Playoff "FAIL BOAT" marathon.
i just want you to explain to me what a fan on a message board can do to "act like he's been there before" when, by definition, he's never been anywhere? he's a freakin' fan on a message board... what the players, coaches and FO people do is one thing, but fans can't possibly act like they've been there before.
and i don't need lessons on etiquette or class from a guy who spends his day trolling an opposing fans website, gets permabanned, then comes back under a different name specifically chosen to magnify his trolling. as i've said to you many times, you were a much, much better poster before this "Welkhead" business.
and regardless of what happens in Pittsburgh, the Jets will still have gone to Foxborough and knocked the Pasts* out of the playoffs, in the biggest turnaround from a regular season loss in NFL history. Brady will still have gotten outplayed by Sanchez, Belichick will still have gotten outcoached by Rex. what happens next week doesn't change that.
that doesn't mean that if we get blown out that everyone will be happy and that the season will be a great success, but one has nothing to do with the other.
stop trolling already, if you can't handle to see Jets fans celebrate a postseason victory, then you should just GTFO.
Personally, improvement from year-to-year - especially when you're already at a high level - makes a successful year. Even if we lose next week, I'd argue this year was better than last year. Yes, it would be a lost opportunity, and you never know when you'll get another opportunity. And I'll be damn pissed. But the season was still a success. Because I have good reason to be hopeful that next year will be even better - even if we lose at Pit.
For the Pats? I dunno. I've heard a lot of talk from Pats fans about how this year is rebuilding, and they'll only be better next year. I'm not sure I buy that though.
I guess another way to put it, as a Jet fan.
Losing to Pit? Horrible.
Making to the SB, only to lose? Gut-wrenching
Beating the Pats and knocking Brady down a notch? Priceless...
You Pats trolls run your mouth year after year somehow equating yourself as being a better person for following a winning team. Then, when our beloved Jets finally deal the golden team a knockout blow you want to dictate how we are allowed to celebrate???
Arrogance at its best. Guess what, your man crushes from that clever little user name (the whole purpose of which is a jab at the Jets) did squat yesterday. Woodhead showed why the Jets kept him on an endless loop of practice squad duty, your superstar tight end is the one with the dense head who can't seem to figure out where Brady is throwing it and the cunning Welker who thought he was cute with his jabs at Rex got benched and then cracked over the middle. Face it, your team was gutless and cowered like a beaten dog when the Jets showed up.
