    In all honesty,...

    the Jets will never win with the public. Even if they win a Super Bowl, people will still find a way to criticize them.

    You are right! After Super Bowl 3 the Jets played the College all-stars in Chicago. They did beat the all-stars but struggled. Here they were SB champs and the media was all over them and the college all stars called them "fat , old men". Then in pre-season they were set to play the Gi-aints. The media had a field day dumping on the Jets as did many fans. Well the upstarts from the Mickey Mouse League lumped up the fan favorite Gi-aints at the Yale Bowl. And still the Jets were doubted in the NY media and by many, mant fans! It has never changed! Since the Jets are old guard AFL I suspect that the media still regards the Jets and AFC as inferior. That is my suspicion.

    Half the media is aged 28 to 40 SBIII was 44 years ago, I doubt there is any AFC/NFC as some teams have even crossed over.

    When you win, everybody loves you....trust me on that.

    But since we'll never win another Super Bowl, by your reasoning, our team will maintain a steady stream of criticism rather than having it expand appreciably. Sounds like a win.
