    Many of us were alive when the Jets won their last Super Bowl.

    So they're not the Cubs either.
    If WS = SB and LCS = Conference Championship what would we be?

    The Cleveland Indians? Longer title drought but they have been to the WS a couple of times.

    The Pirates? Won the WS in '79. Have been to the NLCS since. I think that is a close comparison.

    If you're judging by his feeble attempts at humor, I would agree.

    His emotional IQ suggests much younger. Like 35?

    I still don't get the emotional intelligence thing. Kind of think they are at odds, but I was 2 months old when we won. I thoght you got to win every year at the time.

    I know. I probably should have said 15.

    2 months? LOL. You knew what was going on?

    No didn't you hear I thought we'd win every year. I obviously didn't have a clue what was going on.

    Actually no I didn't even know what the Jets were until I was around 7 and I wanted to rebel against my father and brother. The really uptight Giants fans.

    That's funny. That was a factor in me becoming a Jets fan as well. My dad was an avid Giants fan and that fact and Joe Namath led me to the Jets.

    I Actually consider it the same as stealing signs in baseball, If you're smart enough to pull it off and can decipher it, more power to you...Still hate Belichick and the Pats tho, don't get me wrong

    That's bullish*t, Tuna was trying to talk Manning into coming out, he was going to take him without a doubt

    Recording signals is easy, any fool in the stands with a beer in his hand can do that. Deciphering and putting them to effective use to affect the outcome of football games is a different issue.

    Actually you don't know that. We only know that he couldn't/wouldn't guarantee the pick if a team offered a boatload if picks and Peyton decided not to come out.

    The rest is imagined.

    I was ****ting diapers myself, but my mother said I understood what was going on like the baby in E-Trade

    First off your story about Parcells is wrong.

    Just as claiming Manning was the best QB prospect in NFL history is a total rewrite of history.
