1998 AFC Championship game is much worse to me. Jets had a 10-0 lead in 3rd quarter and lost 23-10.
Yeah the elders tell me that was the worst however I was too young and didn’t follow football back then. But I can certainly imagine.
Oh the pain and suffering of having been a loyal devoted fan of these 2 cursed franchises for as long as I have. Those of my friends who are Mets and Jets fans know exactly the pain I am talking about...lol
These are my boys tho thru thick and thin and they always will be.
That said how friggen cool is this shirt?...
Yeah both '98 and '11 were excruciating losses. I'd argue cause I'm older than you guys are that 1982 was just about the worst loss I've ever experienced as Jet fan. This was the strike year and we caught fire. Richard Todd was God and was stupendous. We had a great 0-line. We had Freeman McNeil toting the rock like he was Walter Payton...Wesley Walker was catching TD's and running by people like nobody's business. The Sack Exchange was in full bloom and we stopped everyone.e
So we blow out the Bengals 44 to whatever opening playoff game. We than go into LA and beat Lyle Alzado and the Raiders and than we head into Miami with all the momentum and there was no one who was going to stop us from getting to the Super Bowl....no one. No one that is except "mother nature". Friggen rained in Miami for 3 days and Shula supposedly told the ground crew to keep the tarp off so that the field was muddy which would negate the Jets bigtime speed advantage.
Well it worked as Todd threw 5 picks three of them to some dude AJ Duhe and voila...once again Jets lose an AFC title game they had no business losing. That too me was the most devastating one seeing that Jet team was as good on both sides of the ball as we have ever had. Oh well...I think its time for me too get over it...NEVER!!...lol
Joe Benigno is that you?
Nice but not complete without ranger blue.
Funny Kirk. You know what sometimes I feel like he does. Beningo is about 10 years older than me and so he's suffered even longer than I have. But yeah sometimes I feel like him. I think he goes a bit overboard tho as he's never happy. I at least can find some positives in both the Mets and Jets. Beningo is always bitching and moaning....I'm not like that.
But funny nonetheless.
I'm going to see what they have when it comes to the Rangers. Maybe they have a Ranger/Knick one....ugggggg....lol
I don't know if you were listening to Joe and Evan back in March/April they were doing a Bracket of Pain with all the most painful NY sports memories, that "AJ Duhe" game he brought up a lot. However it got upset by some Knicks loss I think.
I listened a few times but not for long enough periods to really get into it. That said there is a reason why that "AJ Duhe" game is mentioned so much and that's because the Jets had the best team they ever had to this day that year and we got beat my Mother Nature that day.
Had we played Miami on normal field, we beat them and likely handily and go to the SB....arggggg
Just more proof that the Jets are cursed.
Yup...you got it.
We will always have those first three quarters in game 1 against Buffalo, CJ.
Praying the season gets cancelled.
No FU we can’t lose a season of prime Mahomes
Atrocious... hoping Joe Douglass figures it out. You need to find starters late in the draft to ever become elite
It's hard to truly evaluate a class before they play, but based on how his late round picks were received, it appears we have a gm who can draft and evaluate talent.
Mac was such an awful move from Day 1. Between him and Idzik, I truly believe that people on this board, given the resources could've done a better job.
Impressed with Douglas so far.
If they declined to file on one but not the other, it can't look good for him.
Buh bye, DeAndre.
Good job Baker. What a shame.
Report seeks closer look at Jets owner's conduct
Who made this knucklehead the ambassador to one of our closest allies? He doesn't sound very diplomatic to me.
It looks like Douglas at least has a clue, which is already an upgrade over the last two GMs.
I dunno what it is...maybe it's covid....maybe it's because I know I'm not going to be able to go to any games this year at Met Life...maybe it's because I know for a fact that the Jets are going to suck. I don't know what exactly it is but this is the first year I think ever that I wasn't chomping at the bit for the NFL to start.
I've barely done any research for my big $$ fantasy team. I haven't followed with a fine toothed comb all the transactions, cuts and pretty much anything with regards to football. It's friggen bizzarre. Now I know I'll start doing some cramming for my draft coming up this Wednesday but by now I'm fully prepared with my lists already too go.
I dunno maybe I'm on an island here and not saying I'm not going to watch the games when they are on but the NFL this year....meh no biggie. Maybe when hockey is over and baseball I'll get into it but for now I'm just not into it like I usually am.
