    The Deal

    I WANT TO BELIEVE! Jets make 50 yr. deal with Pete Rozelle in '69

    Supposedly this is how this intriquing story goes.....

    The Jets fool the football world in '69 by going along with a deal with certain members of the Colts to throw the game to the Jets. This is why Jimmy Orr was seen waving his arms en route to the end zone without Earl Morrell finding him and why Bubba Smith was so easily blocked by Randy Rasmussen (who weighed 100 pounds less) and why Morrell threw 3 Int's in the SB and not 2 in any game the whole '68 season....etc. etc.

    The Hunts of KC tell Pete Rozelle of this deal the Jets/Colts made with Vegas oddmakers (Jets were a huge 18 points underdogs set by Vegas) and lay down the law to the Jets in particular. Why the Jets and not the Colts? Because Namath was the catalyst. The only Colt paying a price was Don Shula who was forced to go to the "inferior league" to coach the last place Fish. Anyway.....here was supposedly the punishment:

    ***The Jets will not win another SB by any means necessary until at least the year 2019 (50 years) Thus....

    But, they have to make it look good for the NFL to believe. So, every 7 or so years the QB is lost at the start of a season for example. The playoffs are made only when the HC seems to be conpetant to the rest of the league - thus - Kotite get 4 wins in 2 years and Tuna gets 9 wins in his first season (with the same team) but has Leon Johnson throwing passes with the season on the line

    QB "injuries" that cost the Jets a season(s): 11 seasons in last 36

    Namath 1970, 1972 (preseasons)
    Todd 1978, 1983 (preseasons)
    Ryan 1984 (6-2 start with Ryan/Jets finish 7-9 with O'Brien)
    O'Brien 1986 (after 10-1 start)
    Easiason 1995 (1-1 start)
    O'Donnell 1996 (1st game)
    Testaverde 1999 (1st game)
    Pennington 2003, 2005, 2006, 2007? (preseason/1-1 start)

    There's more to the story if you want me to elaborate further. The story itself comes from Jimmy "The Greek" (famous Vegas "insider") back in 1983 after the Jets "mudbowl' defeat where an average Fish LB (AJ Duhe) returns TWO interceptions for TD's - something that hasnt happened since in the NFL

    heck, we're just like any other team. After all:

    ALL TEAMS LOSE BOTH QB'S FOR THE SEASON IN THE SAME GAME

    ALL TEAMS LOSE THEIR QB'S WHEN "GUARANTEED" THE PLAYOFFS BY MIDYEAR

    ALL TEAMS THAT START 10-1 GO 0-5 *OR* START 6-2 GO 1-8

    O'BRIEN WAS ON THE FISH' BOARD AS A 7TH ROUNDER

    TODD WAS SLATED TO GO IN THE 2ND BY THE FISH AS A DB!!!

    VINNY AND O'DONNELL LOST DURING THE 1ST GAME? ODDS FOR THAT?

    JETS HAVE NEVER HAD A DB MAKE ALL PRO FOR A REASON

    Just the tip of the iceberg - that is if you BELIEVE
