Both teams suck. Jets lose to the sorry Seahags and the mighty Dolphins play a scoring fest with a 2-11 team and their rookie QB. Anyone from the AFC Least will be one and done in the playoffs, greatest embarrassment in NFL history, cant wait to watch it happen!

Dolphins for some reason play to the level of the team they are playing but manage to put together a good long drive at the end of the game. Jets... See all the posts above. When you need Favre to win the game, he cannot do it or his star receiver drops a perfectly thrown pass. There is just something about the Jets, not sure what, maybe Namath sold the jets to the devil for the win almost 40 years ago!!!

Did you see Favre vs the Giants last year; they must have had to drag him out of the locker room the second half, he want no part of it. He really doesn't want to be in New York (Jersey), he's done, wait for the sappy season ending press conference. Jets screwed up big time!

Well, the Jets play the Dolphins in a few hours. Maybe the issue will be settled then. I look forward to reading comments tomorrow.

f*ck the packers!!!they had the best and macarthy threw it away. they suck now like the brewers. they always get a good player or two then let em go and suck again. Now who does Wisconsin have besides Matt Kenseth? Bucks suck, Brewers always sucked, Packers suck....At least we have a champion behind the wheel for us in nascar! I hope the Jets win the superbowl so Ted Thompson can wipe the tears from Macarthys face as they beat of on an Aaron Rodgers jersey!

Tap, I was a man when I said at 8-3, that I'd be here with a mea culpa if Favre brought the jets to the playoffs. I had strong doubts (I actually knew this would happen) so I was a man and said, i'd be here. Tom West is no where to be found.
It's a rather Blue Monday today Tap. I'm pissed, i'm relieved, I'm I'm I'm .....I need a drink!

So glad the jets got rid of noodle armed Pennington and the moronic Herm Edwards. after being a rapid Jets fan for 20 years I actually gave up due to boredom.(I can take the losing) Now that the jets have Favre and Manghini the games are actually exciting and the QB can throw further than 5 yards. This is a real Jets team, like the Ken O'Brien days of fun and gun.
Real jets fans; i started at page 3. where are all these fans????? aaron from vegas, i think there's a Mike, Tom West, et al....The whole group of 21 yr old jet fans who have no idea what it's really like to root for the Jets. UGH!!!!

Green Bay will now slip into mediocrity and will be there for a long time. Heads will roll, it won't matter. New promising athletes will come, it won't matter. They're done. It will be painful to watch them burn on "Brett Favre field".
If the Jets can simply encourage Brett and help make this game fun again in New York, I think it's really possible for him to lead this team into a new era. Without this spark, the Jets go absolutely nowhere. I mean I can't think of a bigger waste of money and time then to buy tickets to watch over and over a dull, losing, football team.
where's thos d/o/os/h??

It was indeed ugly. Hopefully they'll get a coach in there that can utilize the players they've got, they have a few good pieces to build around.

I had the Jets going 8-8 this year, but when they were 8-3 I thought maybe I'm wrong (and was glad to be wrong).

Mangini's press conference was actually kind of funny. He said the collapse was not one thing, but instead a missed play here and there. Leaving out the Buffalo game, the Jets were never closer than a touchdown in any of the four losses. That's a little more than a missed play, it's a total breakdown.
