I hate the offs-
Also look around the site and you'll find plenty of posts about potential deficiencies the team possesses.
There is an old saying, oh wise-man, that goes, "You're only as good as your last game". Well, last game, the Jets were very good. I don't see anyone going over the top with SB predictions. But, why the hell is there a problem with being optimistic? Optimism is a belief that good things will happen..... there shouldn't be a problem with fans believing that there team will do well. Does everyone have to wait for the sky to fall?
You can NEVER have TOO MUCH optimism.
Why can't we just be happy that the Jets stuck it to all of the critics sunday? After hearing all offseason about how the Jets are a dysfunctional circus I am damn proud of the way the Jets played on sunday. I think the majority of us realize we are a long way from being a juggernaut no need for the killjoy thread.....
And here I thought SAR had worst post of the year all locked up...
The man brings up a valid point.
After all you can not overstate how important some postings on a fan board are in the upcoming game.
I mean, the feelings of fans is probably the number 1 or 2 determining factor in the outcome of any sporting event. The importance is only magnified if you post those feelings on a forum.
You guys need to learn your football.
I think Walt isn't a Jets fan... I thought in another post he implied he was either a Bills fan or a Steelers fan - I forgot which...
After the pre-season I approached the season as cautiously optimistic. I was happy with the Bills game, but there were some flaws in the offense in the second half.
I am going to stick with the same approach until the team proves that they are a elite team. To be a elite team, they need to knock off the patsies in a business as usual manner, which means beating them in a game that is extremely emotional and be ready to beat the next opponent.
We have seen the Jets beat them, but always flat the next week.
This is why we can't have nice things.
so after 8 months of mostly gloom and doom, sky is falling forecasts for the Jets from the media "experts" and the "realists" here at JI
and after virtually all of the above predicted they would be worse than those improving Bills, what with the addition of the great Mario Williams and all
the Jets go out on the field and apply a thumping of major proportions to those same Bills in week one
and here is Walt condemning optimism by Jet fans
don't rush with post number 19
Do you know what effect we, as fans, have on blowing easy games when we look ahead on the schedule?
And then have the audacity to DISCUSS it here?
We have to root ONE GAME AT A TIME or we're going to blow some games.
I could easily see the Jets losing to Miami if we start discussing San Fran next week.
We need to focus.
