Jets Blow A Chance At The Super Bowl ? Not Really

The New York Jets were among a handful of teams not to sign free agent CB Nnamdi Asomugha. There are those that say the the Jets will not win a spot as the AFC representative in the Super Bowl because of this. I say poppycock! The Jets were one bad half of football away from facing Green Bay in the NFL championship game. The Jet defense which allowed 24 points in the first half of the game, shut the Steelers out during the second half. All this without Asomugha. There are many ways to view this, but I don't think the Jets are afraid of anyone in the AFC, including the Patriots. Is Ochocinco such an upgrade that New England is now the odds on favorite to win it all? I remember that Randy Moss was going to lead the charge against the Jets. How did that work out? Individual success did not add up to a victory. We will see how this all works out, but if someone has an axe to grind due to the Jets and their talking, they should bring something else to the table, rather than present us with failure due to not signing a free agent.

Questions.....


Did Albert Haynesworth fail a conditioning test? Is anyone surprised?

Will Kevin Kolb lead the Arizona Cardinals to the playoffs? They probably won't get past the Seattle Seahawks for the division, much less make the postseason.

Brad Smith to the Buffalo Bills? Was that because his agent told him there's a better chance to win there?

They won't be an AFC representative as a wildcard this year cuz their front 7 isn't as good as it once was. Starting a rookie in for Ellis. Good luck with that. Plax already injured in first week?

Super Bowl championship......

Yea because Steelers just worked the clock cuz they had a huge lead.

Whether they are afraid or not....doesn't change the fact that they won't be going to the Super Bowl or AFC championship. Some people including myself think Jets will miss the playoffs.

Maybe in the media's eyes. They were favorites last year and were a letdown.

to the Buffalo ? Was that because his agent told him there's a better chance to win there?
No, he probably told him he'd get more respect and more money there.

Will lead the Arizona to the playoffs? They probably won't get past the Seattle  for the division, much less make the postseason
I suggest they will be battling with the Seahawks for last place in the NFC West. Probably for the worst team in the league as well.

Jets Blow A Chance At The Super Bowl ? Not Really

I don't know what your talking about bit 1 not Pat is saying that Ocho is the 2nd coming of christ and 2 we as Pats fans KNOW that the Plax and Mason signings did NOT help the club at all in the continuity of that offense! I don't care if Rex wasted alot of time chasing after Asomugha us Pats wil point out tho that we don't believe that the Jets have improved their front 7 either! These will still be 2 of the top tier of teams in AFC and I am concered about the Pats schedule but their schedule MAY make them a better team come playoff time even if we were to go in as a wildcard!
