    You are just a cup half empty kind of guy trying to find losses in games we won. I could be super OPTIMISTIC and say we could have been 11-5 last year with a couple of breaks.

    Jets had the Giants against the ropes before the Victor Cruz play. We were killing the Broncos but got unlucky on a late drive by Tebow. And despite being in the middle of a collapse we only lost to miami by 2 to close out the season.

    That was Hammer's Power Rankings.

    Jets never sniffed the top 10 last year, let alone 2 or 3.

    Like I said...recency bias: The recency bias is pretty simple. Because it’s easier, we’re inclined to use our recent experience as the baseline for what will happen in the future.

    It turns investors into bad investors, and prognosticators into bad prognosticators....pretty simple psychology. Take all the factors into account is all I'm sayin....

    Biggest joke in the world. If the past year few years of watching football has taught me anything, it's that the media are a bunch of blow-hard idiots. Those rankings, even when the Jets were up there, are so dumb. I hate them.

    The Bills are a media creation.

    You know that.

    The Jets weren't lucky or unlucky last year.

    We were +14 in point differential and finished 8-8. That's how it's supposed to work.

    The Dolphins were +16 and finished 6-10. They were very unlucky.

    The Broncos were -81 and finished 8-8. They were one of the luckiest teams in NFL history.

    Also very lucky? The Oakland Raiders. -74 in point differential, but finished 8-8.


    The 5-11 Redskins were -79
    The 4-12 Browns were -89
    The 5-11 Jaguars were -86

    That's where the Broncos and Raiders should have finished. The Broncos won 3 overtime games and 3 more games by 4 points or less. They won 1 game all year by more than a touchdown. That's some extreme luck.


    The Jets were an inconsistent team. We won 5 games by more than 2 touchdowns. We lost 4 games by more than 2 touchdowns.

    We were 2-2 in games decided by 4 points or less. We recovered an abnormally low % of fumbles. We had an abnormally high number of our offensive turnovers returned for touchdowns. Opposing FG kickers didn't miss a kick against us all year. That's the bad luck.

    The good luck came against the Cowboys and the Bills.

    Why should the Chargers have won that game? We outgained them by more than 50 yards, had 9 more first downs, and turnovers were even.

    So this guy predicts the Steelers to win the AFC North but has the Ravens ranked 3 spots ahead of them in the power rankings. Total buffoon.

    Wow.

    Must suck to have such a sh*tty resemblance of a life that one posts 50,000 times on a board just to see "responses".

    What makes you even want to get out of bed in the AM? Your malfunctioning prostate?

    My av isn't politically motivated. I just love beer, and apparently so does he. And I think that's cool.
