Default Jets in the Playoffs?

Would anyone else here hate to see the Jets in the playoffs? I'm not just saying this because they're (most likely) going to edge out the Bengals...I mean, I would rather see the Titans, heck I'd rather even see the Steelers in the playoffs over them. I think there are 3-4 teams in the AFC more deserving of the playoffs than them.

I could at least see the Steelers, Bengals, Chiefs, Titans, etc. making a run in the playoffs if they got hot...I can't see that with the Jets. Chad Pennington is a mediocre QB with no zip on his passes, their runningbacks are barely average, and their wr's only saving grace is Coles. And their defense is a bit suspect in my eyes...I mean they're starting Hank Poteat at cornerback.

I'm just not buying into the Mangenius hype.

I've only seen one Jets game and that was Monday night......while I'm happy they made Bengals fans crap their pants ( ), I just had to shake my head watching their so called QB toss that football around like he was throwing a penny into a fountain. One and done in the playoffs, IMO. Ben, Ben, where for art thou, Ben???

I agree with your first sentence, bcrabt, but with regard to your second - the doubters said that last season about the Steelers, if you will recall. If a team gets hot at the right time, anything is possible (except for the Bungles - they're as inconsistent as the Steelers this season and also like the Steelers, you never know what team is going to show up on any given week).

I also wouldn't mind seeing the Titans get in there or the Chiefs.

Hey, the Jets earned this opportunity, like them or not. But they will be one and done - Pennington and that floater ball he throws is going to be intercepted a lot.

i smell an "anti-kimo" bias.

GOoooooooelhoffen!

the jets have nobody of consequence. noone really wants to see them, although i gotta give props to jerhico and washington. their rookie linemen have done well. i dont dislike the jets but theres about 4 other teams id rather watch in the playoffs (the bungles arent one of them though)

IMO... It won't matter.

Bears/San Diego

That will be a great SB... sadly... I would want both teams to win!

I think the Jets are alot like a less talented 2001 Patriots in the way they play the game.

They try and minimise mistakes on offense and try and win a field position battle through their swarming D.

This means they arent going to set many pulses racing. but its a style that has allowed a team with a relatively low level of talent to more than likely make the postseason.

Mangini is probably No.2 in the race for HC of the year behind Sean Payton.

Dont rule out a well coached team when it comes to the postseason.

The Patriots didn't bother with swagger to start this NFL season; they went straight to defiant. Either you're one of them or you're about to get crushed.
