    We lost to Marty Schottenheimer in the playoffs. That's hard to do.

    I was 8 years old watching this game with dad.. I spent most of the two overtimes running to room every time the Browns lined up for a FG (think they missed a few before hitting)

    Until now I haven't seen many highlights from this game, except for the Gastineau play and McNeil's 20 yard TD run, but watching now, it's amazing how quickly a lot of this game is coming back to me. Little did my 8 year old self know that this would be the last 'meaningful' playoff game the Jets played until 1998 and I was 20.

    An epic choke, thanks to Gastineau and Jerry Holmes

    One thing you don't see from that replay is just how pathetic the Jets offense was in the overtime. It was literally like Walton & Kotite were playing for the tie that would never come.

    I remember thinking for many years that I hoped Gastineau felt like crap for the rest of his life after the awful and unnecessary penalty. But I actually felt for the guy a little when I heard him say that he DID feel like crap for over a decade because of what he did (assuming it was sincere).

    For me, it still ranks as [I]the [/I]worst loss in Jets history. Still hurts to think about it. Only compounded by the fact that the Giants went on to Super Bowl glory a few weeks later.

    Ditto, the worse loss up until the Steeler Championship game 2 years ago. The Browns game still hurts to watch. Man, that was bad. The Jets being the Jets. Joe pick my nose Walton sucked

    I think we would have beaten the Broncos. But im not sure we would have beatent the Giants in the SB. That would have been a horrible loss for Jets fans. Our team had too many injuries, especially on Defense. I believe Lance Mehl was out for the season and not sure Klecko would have been back for the SB.

    That 1986 team was stacked, minus the horrible offensive line. If we had a half way competent coaching staff we would have won the division and maybe more.

    I was there for this game. Jets up be 10 was the biggest hush in any stadium ever. Cleveland missing that chip shot FG in OT thought we had fate on our side, but then I realized I am a Jet fan. Still think that was Bs call on Gastineu.

    For those of us who weren't around for this, how does this compare to the Doug Brien game?

    Never before or since have the Jets clutched defeat from the jaws of victory like they did that day in January 1987. Certainly not in a playoff game.

    The Pittsburgh loss is crushing for very different reasons. The team didn't show up until the second half. The Cleveland 2OT debacle was an all-time classic choke job.

    McNeil scored a TD to put the Jets up 10 with 4:14 left in regulation.

    It was the nail in the coffin. The game was over.

    Up by 10 with 2:20 and having the opponent inside their 20 and 2nd and 24 is a choke of monstrous proportions

    People want to know about the origins of "Same old Jets" - and I think you have to say that if the 1986 season didn't start it, it at least epitomized it. It was an unbelievably brutal season to experience. The highest highs and lowest lows.

    Those too young to remember it should consider themselves fortunate.
