    Yes, they had a fun, albeit ridiculous run against a bunch of lay-down pansie teams. But what does it get them?

    As Padre and others have mentioned before, they are screwed as far as FA goes next year. Per PK at nfl.com:

    http://www.nfl.com/news/story?id=09000d5d808736ba&template=with-video&confirm=true

    So no FA signings. They also only have 4 draft picks, and will be drafting at the 29th spot. This years draft order is hinged on playoff performance not record, so they are screwed big time there. And those 4 picks could go to three, if they pick up Lito Sheppards option(a 4th to Philly). But they probably won't. Nor do I think they will resign Braylon Edwards. I mean, I hope they do, I think he's a weak WR and will be way overpaid.

    So they will have a hole to fill at CB, probably Wr, among other spots, and will just have their 1,2,4,6 draft picks.

    I admit, they got hot. But all year long, the Jets were an average team. They pounded on easy teams, and were a 9-7 team at the end of the day. And did you hear Rex Ryan mention Kris Jenkins..."hoping he comes back, and buys into the system"? Uuhh, perhaps all is not too rosie on that front? I know Jenks has been annoyed and spoke out against his loud mouthed teammates on several occasions this year.

    We shall see, but you could color me SHOCKED, if they make the play-offs or win more than 9 games next year.

    Not only with FA, I could see a guy like Rex possibly getting too comfortable with the talent level on his team due to a run like this. Thinking they're so close already it could impact their drafts and FA moves, similar to Wanny always thinking we were just one or two players away. I'm not saying the Jets need a complete rebuild or anything close to that but if Rex gets too complacent with what he currently has I think that's good news for the rest of the East. They were 2-4 vs. the East after all.

    plus they have 4 players starting on the defensive and offensive lines that are 32 plus. All of them wont start falling apart but I can almost bet that at least one of them will start to fade.

    If the Colts played like they did today back in week 16, the Jets don't even make the playoffs.

    Like someone else said, what do the Jets get from this?....

    Super Bowl, NO.
    AFC Title, NO.
    Divison Title, NO.
    A ring of any kind?, NO.
    A high draft pick, HELL NO.
    Free Agents, LOL YEAH RIGHT!!!!

    The Jets overachieved in the worst possible year to be an overachiever. They have a pathetic set of draft picks. They have no shot at signing anyone good. They will be the exact same team next year. Too bad for them, everyone else will be better.

    You guys need to go over to theganggreen and see all the excuses being made.

    Once again, it wasn't the Colts who beat the Jets, it was injuries....the refs....blah blah blah.

    Not the fact that Manning carved up that paper tiger defense that lost HOW many games when it needed to make a stop?

    Not because that "#1 rushing attack" managed only 86 yards. Oh wait! Didn't Green get injured? That HAS to be the reason.

    After all, when Brown got injured it wasn't like Rickey picked up the slack or anything. :wink2:

    Can you say exposed?

    Let's look at what happened to the winner of the AFCE from last year. We fell, and we fell pretty hard. The Sophomore slump will hurt, they'll face a tough schedule and everyone will be gunning for them. Good luck RR yer gonna need it more than you need a visit from Jenny Craig.

    "But we made it to the AFC Champuionship" What is the point of the playoffs again? Oh right to get to the Superbowl.

    Enjoy your team's fall back to irrelevance.


    Woody Johnson better hope there will be a new CBA, because in "the final league year" they are going to be screwed.

    Some of the soon to be classics being posted on theganggreen.com:

    You guys REALLY need to go into this thread and read all the posts by "Royal T". Try not to have whatever you're drinking fly out your nose at this douchenozzle! :lol:

    The "Royal T" rant.

    To their credit, there were alot of classy Jet fans in that thread giving props to the Colts, but the BEST comment of them all came from an Indy fan:
    Bravo!

    That one made me laugh as well. The arrogance of some of their fan base in thinking its ok when they trash talk but not ok when it is done to them is hilarious. I do have to give credit where credit it due though. Some of their fans are spot on and understand.

    Probably a matter of 2 weeks till they group together and come in here to rub our noses in their Glory. They have earned that....even if they did back into it like a gay male porn queen....that is irrelevant :up:

    I don't know what they actually "earned" bro. To me the Colts even made it clearer that if they had played the first game to win the Jets would have never even sniffed the playoffs.

    I think what the Jets showed us is that in the playoffs anything can happen. It didn't shock me that they won a couple games against the Bengals and Chargers. Had they beaten the Colts, a vastly superior team, then I would say they accomplished something great.

    Like you, it's hard for me to give them too much respect because they didn't deserve to be there in the first place, even though making it to the AFC Champ. game is no small feat.

    I still believe with a healthy Ronnie Brown we are a better team than they are. Mainly because Chad Henne has shown he can win a game nearly all by himself (New England game) and Sanchez has not.

    I find if very funny how the excuses they use are valid when it's them and complete lunacy when its someone else. Three examples off the top of my head (I'm sure there are more) 1) The wildcat is a Gimmick play and only bad teams need to resort to using it. 2) Injury's killed us (when for the most part they went relatively Injury free this year. 3) Its brash and inspires our team when we run off at the mouth but when someone else does it in return its totally classless.

    You know the new hand held devices they give out at the stadium for the club seat? Well they should give the rest of us Tasers damn it!

    i remember last year their excuse was "you only beat us by one game, and then you didn't make it tothe super bowl" as a way to trivialize what the dolphins did that year. Ive got ten dollarsthat says they are all quickly scrambling to trivialize us beating them twice and they are trying to find a way to make great them not going to the superbowl......

    I think it is genius by the Colts to let the Jets beat them in the regular season to give them a chance at an easy opponent in the playoffs.

    It reminds me of when Maddux, while playing with the Braves, served up a meatball to Jeff Bagwell on an 0-2 count late in a regular season game. Bagwell deposited it in the seats. Javy Lopez was furious as Maddux shook him off and just threw a fat straight fastball over the middle.

    Maddux's response was this, "We are going to see this team again in the playoffs. And when we do, Bags will be looking for that pitch if we get to that count."

    Sure enough, Bags struck out swinging when the same count and situation came up in the playoffs. Maddux pulled the string on the pitch and walked off the mound smiling.

    I strongly agree with all of this.
    Truth is, if we had the fortune to back into the playoffs, we could have taken a similar path.
    While the Jests obviously have a better defense, I would take our QB over theirs any day of the week.
    Actually, trade Snatcho and Henne and I give them a fighting chance to win yesterday.

    Believe it or not, Maddux had a no-hitter going... A NO-HITTER!!!

    And it was Eddie Perez, not Javy Lopez. Maddux hated throwing to Javy.
