    Every Year Is An Entity Unto Itself ...

    Therefore we as Jet fans need to stop the "whining" that has infested the board. With all
    of the Giant "worship" going on today let's not forget the state that franchise was in this
    time last year:

    - Lost six of their last eight games and collapsed into the playoffs
    - Their best player was retiring
    - Their coach was rumored to be fired
    - Their GM was retiring
    - Their established defensive leader had a season ending injury and threatened to retire
    - Their "franchise" QB was totally erratic

    Do I need to go on??? The Jets had a bad year but that does not translate into being bad
    next year.

    I agree every year is a new start...It just helps if you start the year with Brady as your QB..

    We finished up 4-12, have a QB position in flux, are desperate for talent on both sides of the ball, saw the Pats run the table and are on the cusp of another SB title, Brady tosses 50 TD's for the record, Moss snatches 23 TD passes for the record, and the Giants are playing in the NFC title game.

    I think Jets fan have quite a bit to be ticked off about lately.

    How many bad entities in a row before we are allowed to whine??

    I think with our Qb situation the way it is . Playing in the same division as the Pats and the same conference with the Chargers and the Colts. I think we are in for at least another 10 year stretch without a championship game.

    You can whine all you want about the team's performance. I do.

    And, I agree with your assessment.

    Good post, I completely agree. I'm very confident that next year will be a good year for us. These bad years make the good ones even sweeter.
