    Really this has no bearing on this year, I just post it as an interesting staline that was posted in a Newsday article today, whatta ya thinks???

    Statlines

    This is the eighth time the Jets have started 2-0. The seven previous times, they finished with a winning record only twice and made the playoffs only once, when they won their only Super Bowl.

    2000 Al Groh 9-7

    That was then...this is now! With a 2-0 record....if we go 7-7 over the next 14 games we will be at 9-7 for the year. I am not saying that 9-7 will be enough for the playoffs BUT i think we will be 11-5 this year. My gut says that the Defense will be outstanding as the year progresses.

    I look at the offenses that we play and I know our defense will only get better and they are playing well (6 turnovers in 2 games)

    The secondary will finally be intact as a starting unit for the Dolphins game.

    Teams also have to worry about our offense which is nowhere near it&#39;s potential.

    This can be a good year for us.

    Lets try and get to that "second season" called the playoffs.

    One game at a time.

    thats outstanding for a unit that is still learning a new defensive scheme.

    one reason why this team will improve from most of the other 2-0 jet teams...Chad Pennington. he brings an attitude to this team, it hasn&#39;t had in a long , long time. add that to the improvements we&#39;ve made and it all points to a very successful season.

    I&#39;m not going to go back on the past teams....this 2004 team has brought in a new era of Jets football...you just feel the difference. In both games even when the Bengals and Chargers made a run I just had no fear that the Jets were going to lose.

    No, 1995 would be the beginning of that disaster known as the Rich Kotite Era. <_<

    1994 was Pete Carol

    we beat Buff in Buffalo like 35 - 3
    then beat Denver in OT at the home opener - big INT by Mo Lewis (bad roughing the passer on Lott) and winning FG by Nick Lowery set up by a big pass and catch by Boomer and Art Monk

    Let&#39;s just &#39;&#39;worry&#39;&#39; about the Miami Dolphins before we think about the past....or the distant future....of this team.

    Chad said it best - " the next thing is to win a division game and become 3-0". One game at a time.
