Useless media strikes again. This time its Pro football talk that shows why its no better the national enquirer. This article fails to mention that EVERY team involved in Championship week did the same.....
[B][SIZE="4"]Jets selling AFC champs gear[/SIZE][/B]

Apparently, some folks in the Jets organization are taking Rex Ryan's Super Bowl calendar a bit too literally.
They're already selling gear indicating that the Jets have won the AFC title. (Via Deadspin.)
Two years ago, word got out that the Patriots had applied for a federal trademark on the phrase "19-0." Also, the Boston Globe was selling a book commemorating the Super Bowl-winning season that never happened.
And so, if anyone ever pulls that off, the Pats will have them right where they want them.
For the Jets, the AFC championship gear won't have any ongoing value, given that the stuff includes "2009" and/or "Super Bowl XLIV."
On a brighter note, kids in Nicaragua could have some green and white to wear as an alternative to red, white, and blue.
