    i picked yes ... i thought about this all last night.

    we had great players on this team like curtis martin, joe namath, don maynard, ronnie lott, and so on but this may be the best assembled team/roster we ever had

    We have not even clinched a playoff spot yet. Lets not get carried away. Things certainly look good and we should be excited but if our history tells us anything its proceed with caution. I am savoring this one week at a time.

    totally agree, we are very well rounded. have a couple big names and a bunch of weapons. every last man on the team is important and i feel we have a lot of depth.

    It's up there, but...

    I can't say that yet. You still have to say that the SB III team was the best ever. All Pro QB, All Pro LT, All Pro RG, All Pro WRs. Philbin, Elliot, Bigs on the line. Sample and Hudson in the DB.

    I also liked the mid-80s teams. Sack Exchange on the line. Powell and Ward at Tackles. Alexander at Guard. Fields at Center. McNeil, Walker. And then Buttle, Blinka and Mehl at LB and BoJack, Darrell Ray, Jerry Holmes in the backfield.


    Let's give this team a few more weeks. Hopefully, I can say it then...

    believe me i dont wanna get carried away/jinx us ... i am scared to face Denver ... they are well coached and have always been a good football team (that and they are coming off a loss)

    BUT on paper this may be the best team ever assembled ..

    So was the Mud Bowl team.

    Guys, put down the crack pipe. This team hasn't even clinched a playoff berth yet, let alone win a playoff game. Wait until Feb. to make these kind of threads.

    If they win the SB then I say yes. If they can't get the job done then I don't think you can give them that distinction.

    1968 - that team was loaded with hard working football players that overachieved. Namath was god-like in that era. It's a shame most posters here never got to see Namath in the mid to late 60's. Oh, they also won SB III. Until another Jets team does that, the 1968 team will continue to be the best ever. If the Jets win it this year, and we are way too far from that point to even begin contemplating it, then my answer will change to this year's team. Overall talent around the league is probably better than back in the 60's.

    Let's not all get too caught up in what this team has done the past few weeks. It has been as exciting a period in Jets football as we have had in a long time, but there's still lots of football to be played.

    I should not have brought this back up but here it goes ....

    BTW ... I AM ASHAMED TO HAVE STARTED THIS THREAD!!!!!!

    Wishful thinking...
    1. Rex Ryan as HC-strong, defensive mind, well respected, players hopefully will play hard for him. He plays a hybrid 3-4 (sometimes 4-3) at Balt.
    2. He brings in the DC of his choice
    3. Shotty remains OC
    4.. I pray they keep Mike Westhoff
    5. FA's Terrell Suggs and Ray Lewis sure up our defense

    Where am I going wrong?

    Not even close,

    We improved since our 4-12 team of 2007, and it became clear that we got the favre of 2006 and not the favre of 2007.

    We have some good talent at some positions and some people with potential, I think the talent on this team as a whole is overated.
