As Jet fans we I think we have all been to the point of rooting for another team, just switching colors..But for some reason us Jet fans find a way to step away from that ledge come wed. or Thur. with the idea that it will all be OK.. I have been fooled for 30 yrs, and shame on me to think this organization will do anything to turn things around.
This yr feels different from others its completely out of control, like it or not we are the laughing stock of the league and it does not seem to be getting any better.. Tebow.....I have to say if we start this joke of a qb...I may turn my attention to wards another team...I know don't let the door hit me in the ass, goodby...and all that ****..
I will be in front of the TV once again on Mon. night with the hopes of beating the best team in the league right now, I will actually have a reason why we could win..but by the second half it will be clear that I was fooled once again.....Mon. night final.....Jets 6 Texans...put up 50..

Yes, the Kotite era truly was a sad, sad time. One couldn't dispute that underlying all of that losing, we had the core of a good team just waiting to mature with more pieces added to the puzzle. It took Parcells to add those missing pieces and bring that core out.
This team... the offense looks talentless and putrid while the defense looks morally defeated. And both sides are hamstrung by injuries to pile on.
I too would rather stop watching football tthan change teams. Same thing with the NBA (with that the officiating is so biased come playoff time, I swear it off every year, give it a chance and swear it off over and over). I'm a loyal fan and if they just kept sucking and getting worse, would lose interest in general rather than betray my loyalties. I swore off this team after the '93 collapse and a few other times. I keep seeing signs of getting better, then collapse, It's tough to watch over and over and over....

I know I love this team...but I feel soo bad bringing my kids in to it..They are innocent..I feel bad when my daughter calls me and say "sorry bout this sun."..I love this team and know deep inside I will always bleed green.
I once thought I might ALSO root for Seattle if I ended up moving there, them being NFC and me liking their logo and colors (sans the dayglo chartruce highlights) and all.
But I didn't move. And even if I had, it would have been Jets #1A, Seattle #865C maybe.
No, at this point is is what it is. I'm not 8 years old and still forming. I've spent 20+ years of my life with the Jets as a major emotional interest, not about to dump them now, after that kind of investment.
Watching Sunday i was reminded of 99 the week after vinni went down...
But the more i think about it I'm reminded of 2002.
Beat the bills in week 1,
lose 44-7 to NE
lose 30-3 to MIA
Sub Chad in for Vinny
lose 28-3 to JAX
lose 29-25 to KC
1-4 at the bye. This board was incredibly similar - except find and replace Rex or Tanny with Herm or Bradway, or Vinny and Chad with Sanchez and Tebow.
I'm telling you the feeling is EERILY similar.
Then we got our **** together and went on a run for the ages, maybe I'm a dreamer but I think there's enough parody in the league that this team might be able to do the same, esp with the remaining schedule we have.
Yes that season didn't end in a Super Bowl, but thrashing the packers to win the AFCE and then demolishing the colts in our most recent home playoff game felt pretty good didn't it?
I'm pissed an dissapointed but I bleed green for life.
What sucks right now is, we're 4 games into a brand new season and it's pretty obvious this season is close to trashed. I will still watch and root as normal but this is depressing to say the least. My heart will allow me to have hope until we are mathmatically out of it. But my head tells me this season is OVA!
