    Beating the Pats in the 2010 Playoffs is one of the highest...


    Keith Byars Fumble in the AFC Championship Game is the lowest...
    Testaverde Achilles is a close runner up...

    Beating NE 2010. And being in TENN to watch a FAVRE led team beat TENN, previously 10 and 0.

    Losing to PITT in 2005 and 2011 playoffs.

    Highs: 2010 playoff win over the Cheats. Allegre kicking Jets into postseason in '91 in Miami. I was there and it was sweet (for 1 week) sticking it to the Phins losers.
    Lows: 1986 OT playoff loss to Cleveland. No doubt in my mind we would have beat Denver in the AFCC and then the Jints in the SB. STILL hurts! Followed by all the AFCC game losses.

    Jets beating Colts 44-34 when Joe threw for 496 and 6tds, was there as a 14 year old and was out of my mind! Also when Todd hit Barkum for the win vs Dolphins in '81, 41-0 over Colts. On the negative side, losing to Phins in mud bowl, they were best team in the league in '82, and loss to Broncos-tell me they wouldn't have crushed the Falcons in the Super Bowl!?!

    Super Bowl III It's when I became a fan
    I'd like to say every year since but I'll agree the Brien/Pitt game was the worst with the Dolphin Mud Bowl second

    Both of mine were in 2010.

    Beating the Patriots in Foxboro was the best it's been for me.

    Then losing to the Steelers was the worst. I'm a sole Jets fan in a family filled with Bears fans. We had a huge gathering to watch the Bears/Packers and later Jets/Steelers in hopes of setting up our families dream Super Bowl. Both teams lost. That was the worst day I've had as a sports fan.

    Low has got to be the AFCCG loss in Pittsburgh. Drove about 8 hours to that game, really thought we were going to get it done. Then to fall behind so quickly, turned into a miserable night. I don't think I will ever forget walking out of Heinz Field that night. It was as if it was just another win for the Steeler fans -- like a Super Bowl appearance had become routine for them.

    High had to be two weeks earlier, when I took a road trip down to Indy and we won the Divisional Game. Funny, I have been a Jet fan for 40+ years and the most memorable highs and lows came about 2 weeks apart. I guess when you make the investment to be there, the highs are a little bit higher and the lows are a little bit lower.

    I actually had to leave to a Handball game the next morning (like 3 hours after the game ended) and a teammate said a day later that the Moment I came to the bus was the most upset and p...ed he has ever seen me...
