You're looking at it the wrong way. Those two seasons were the flukes, not these two. Remember that '09 was really 8-8 and no playoffs if Peyton Manning doesn't sit at halftime in Indy. And 2010 was as flukey and bizarre a year as I've seen in Jets history. Much credit to Rex and the staff for winning those playoff games, but he did it in spite of the talent not because of it. This year and last year (and '07 and '08) are the true indicators of the Mike Tannenbaum legacy.
