The jets werent that good during that stretch. I can still here the beep, beep, beep, as they backed into the playoffs that first year when Indy pulled Pay-Ton in the 2nd half of that late reg season game and handed you a WC spot. The jets should not have made the play offs. I give em props for taking advantage of a terrible bengals team twice but it seems at some point they showed their true colors and were thrashed. Same thing the next year when the backed in some ugly kind of way and beat bad teams including the chargers who stunk that year and had no more business in the playoffs than the jets. They were a 500 team getting a lot of breaks closer to the lower tier teams in the league than the upper.
I can understand your wanting to delude yourselves into thinking rex is great and everything is a ok going forward. I cant believe jet fan wants to hold this up as some Golden age of dominant dynasty to harken back to nostalgaically. Its why you are hated throughout the sports world
