[QUOTE=brady's a catcher;4495238]Would have been 3rd and 24. Hold 'em to 23 yards on two plays, take 3 knees and punt. :([/QUOTE]
I know I have relived this a million times. I remember a guy in my section bought a bunch of Jet fans beers (must of been about 15 of us) and left to catch a flight back home with 4 minutes left thinking we won. This was not a fun trip home.
I was only 13 watching the Browns game. I can still remember the tv announcer saying with 4:03 and the Jets up by 10 points the Jets are headed to AFC Chamopinhsip game. The Jets had the lead and just gave it back.
In the Steeler game the Jets never had the lead, we came back from 10 down and had the chance to take the lead twice on the FGs.
Both games were bad losses, but I don't think we would have beaten Denver the following week, just as I feel we would have never beaten New England after the Doug Brien game.
[QUOTE=Traitor Jay & the Woodies;4495098]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.[/QUOTE]
Plus, earlier that season, the Jets dismantled Denver easily, who would have been the opponent in the AFCCG.
[QUOTE=Sec340;4495102]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[/QUOTE]
Gastineau was a counterproductive wanker. The worst thing was he was so talented, one of the finest passrusher - but his out of control ego (steroid fueled) ruined everything :steamin:

Which is why we blame him for a game that was a complete team meltdown along with a HUGE coaching blunder that goes unblamed.
