Is this for real? Only two times for the Jets??!?!?


It is not real.

 

The Jets have won the East four times.

 

The Bills have won the East 12 times.

 

We’re both lagging behind the Dolphins and Patriots.

In fairness, over the past roughly 35 years, the AFC East has had three pretty dominant teams, all three not named the NY Jets.  When competing against those teams does make it tougher to come out on top.  From about 86 to 2000 you had two teams to beat out, then since 2000 had one extremely dominant team that would just beat everyone in the division, leaving them far behind.

 

When you look likely could say that about one team in almost every division, Cleveland and Cincy haven't won much in the north, Chargers out west, and Jax in the south. South was often a case to where someone had to win it, but no one was every real strong for an extended period..

 

Actually just read going all the way back to 1960 when the AFL was formed, the AFC East has won 26 AFC/AFL conference titles, 11 NE, 6 Buffalo, and 5 Miami, Jets 1, and two teams no longer in the East Titans 2, Colts 1.  Interesting also that the Pats, Bills and Fish have one 48 out of roughly 62 AFC East titles.  So overall three very dominant teams conference wide in the East.

The jests have only won twice since they entered the NFL, they also won 2 times in the AFL.

Fair enough.

 

Either way — two or four — it’s pretty pathetic in 50+ years of existence.

Another fun fact: The Jets have won a SB. In fact, they were the first AFL team to do it when everyone said it was impossible. We have won 0 SB's. This is not a legitimate basis for criticism.

Colts won it six times and they haven't been in the division for 20 years.

The Jests were called the Titans from 1960-1962.

The team had little success in its early years. After playing three seasons at the Polo Grounds, the team changed its name to the New York Jets under AFL's Protective services agreement.

Wasn’t Sammy Baugh their first coach? They were pretty instrumental in the survival of the AFL. First owner didn’t have any money, seems like the only guys in the “Foolish Club” that actually had money were Hunt, Adams and Wilson. Sonny Werblin  saved the franchise. Drafting and signing Joe Namath was a big deal and a big f$$k you to the arrogant pricks of the NFL. And winning Super Bowl III was huge. They have had bad ownership ever since, remember what that’s like? As much as I respect Ralph Wilson and what he did for the AFL and the NFL, he was a meddling owner. We are lucky to have the Pegulas.

Instead Brady can say he owned the Bills!

 

Does that make you happier??

Someone doesn't know how to play the thread game. Take the stick out of your ass. Some people just shouldn't be on the internet... like you.
