Formed in 1960 as a member of the AFL, the originally called themselves the Titans and were stuck being NY's 2nd rate team (behind the Giants). They turned it around in the late 1960s, with Joe Namath at quarterback. In 1968, they shocked the world (and the Colts) with an amazing win in Super Bowl III to capture their only title and to give the AFL credibility in its waning moments. Were a medicore franchise for many years afterward, with no playoff berths in the 1970s and just 5 from 1980-1997. In 1998, they assembled a Super Bowl worthy team, but were unable to win in the playoffs. The following 2 years, they were in the playoff hunt, but collapsed in December to miss the postseason. Have been a decent frachise recently, with 3 playoff berths in the last 5 years, but struggled with injury and were dismal in 2005.
"And Joe Namath lives up to his guarantee, the New York Jets have stunned everyone with a 17-6 victory to capture the world championship."

A joyless passion that only adds more misery to the lives of fans of said team.
The New York Jets, who started 8-3, will not make the playoffs with another December collapse they have become so infamous for.

New York Football Team, with poor history, consisting of mostly Mexicans, potheads, dumb asses, and overrated players. They have a fat coach who is morally vacuous, has a passionate foot fetish, and flaps his gums to much. The Jets are a team with no character which always gets players with behavioral problems. Always involved in embarrassing, stupid incidents, like Sal Alosi tripping Dolphins rookie Nolan Carroll, the Rex Ryan middle finger dispute, and the viral Youtube video with Mark Sanchez using Mark Brunell as a snot rag. Has players with big mouths like Cromartie tweeting that he will "smash Matt Hasselbeck's face in" and other stupid comments from Revis, Sanchez, Scott, and Pace. Overrated players include, but are not limited to: Shonn Greene, Jerricho Cotchery, Brad Smith, Mark Sanchez, and more. Nicknames for these players include "Dirty Sanchez," "Jerricho Crothery," and more.
"Jets are the BEST TEAM!"
"Are you an idiot? Jets are gay, they are more like the New York Jests."

"Dude, that guy is such an idiot, he must be a member of the terrible organization - the New York Jets"

"Rex Ryan is so fat that they has to set up speed bumps when he went to an all-you-can-eat buffet!

a team in the AFC East that will in a couple years be serious contenders. for those who say they suck, check the facts: under a first year coach(mangini) they made the playoffs when every1 thought they would suck, leon washington is a young, solid RB, jerricho cotchery is also a good, young WR, chad pennington is back to being good and not injurey prone, kellen clemens is the future for them, and the other teams r on the decline. the pats havent won the super bowl since 2004, they didnt make it to the super bowl in 05 or 06, they dont have WR's, and their just losing their dominance of the league now. the bills r gonna be good in a couple years but not as good as the jets will because their in re-building mode pretty much, same with dolphins. plus their could possibly not even be a super bowl if it werent for the Jets and their super bowl III victory
person 1:So who do you think is gonna win the AFC East in 2 years?
person 2: the New York Jets(see reasons above, i have more too)
