We did not expect THIS whole sh-t sandwich to occur this year *but* it did and now we're voicing our frustrations about it.
The main issue also is that it's now 44(was it?) years since '69 and it's going to be 45 now.......maybe 46 next year as well.....
I'm just not confident that the Jets Franchise will even be in a Superbowl, let alone Win one during our lifetimes and that's a very depressing thought.
Believe it or not I know the feeling EXACTLY
I'm a NY Rangers fan who was much too young to have seen the 1940 win and more upset with each passing Cupless year until the longed for win finally happened, wondering if I will ever see it
a Jets fan just old enough to have seen the SB win and not unhinged
by the ensuing years. That win still is S-WEET!
Of course the close calls still sting too. Seeing the Giants and Pats win again lately at the expense of NYJ sucks, a lot, and amps up the craziness we see now.
However I'd like to see more perspective and less psychosis though-some demand "accountability" from people involved with a sport, entertainment we voluntarily pay for more than we demand the same from government or business we have no choice but to deal with.
You can't change the past or Woody's wealth. Shea is long gone, Willets Point will probably never, ever be, and WSS will not be in the near future. The Jets who didn't get it done, nobly or otherwise, before are gone and many of the ones who don't this year will probably be too, but not today, 11/16, on your say-so, no matter how vociferous or annoyingly repetitive. Cutting an ineffective Maybin is as far as it goes for now, this is not baseball where there's no cap and Steinbrenner can hire/fire/cut players at will.
The season still has a few live embers I hope spark, but it will likely end as badly as you hope and save the owner, all the heads you want to roll will probably roll. Johnson's MO has not been to fire coaches/mgt mid/late season so don't expect anyone axed tomorrow. But what if Revis gets dealt or Tebow stays or Sanchez stays or Ryan stays, or vice versa, does this require an unending litany of lamentation throughout 2013 too?
The malignant tone of much of this dopey thread really makes me question other's fandom, big time. Francesa is a spiteful tool who should mean less than nothing to a Jets fan. Yet, the masturbatory frisson of schadenfreude and delight some have in hearing him make Tannenbaum squirm is now the latest craze. Sorry, I don't get how that makes anyone a good Jets fan or anything besides a sadist, perhaps someone could explain it to me. Don't repeat it 1000x as usual though, once is enough for me!
if the Jets were a woman some of youse would have restraining orders, just sayin'
