I wanna see a SUBWAY SUPER BOWL while I'm still young enough to enjoy it. I don't wanna be in a diaper in a nursing home, drooling all over myself while i watch a bunch of men in tights run around & jump around, not knowing "who the ^%$# are these guys, and what the %$#@ are they doing?"

"You're a Jets fan?"

"I am now"

LOL...That IS a typical answer from a typical Jet fan.

How can there be an "All New York Superbowl" when there's only ONE FOOTBALL TEAM IN NEW YORK??? Please get your hands on a bloody atlas and locate "The Meadowlands" and tell me what State it's in????

The sad part is that if it were the Giants and Jets, it wouldn't be played at the Meadowlands.

These teams need to get a stadium in NEW YORK. As far as I'm concerned it's the New Jersey Giants and the New Jersey Jets. Doesn't make any sense to me. Is there any other team in football or any other sport that plays in one state but represents another state?

It is definitely a slow news day when sports writers talk about a NY v. NY match up.

A hell of a lot can happen in five games, people.

And we Jet fans - who know all to well not to get our hopes up - are already happy with what we've seen.

"Any team can beat any other team on any given day." - Vince Lombardi

No team left on the Jets' schedule is a push over. Besides, they were one of the teams who lost to the Raiders.

Let's just wait this out, shall we?

True, but didn't The Mets just play The Yankees in The World Series? Hey, it might just happen.

Bob...yes, it's nice to contemplate a Jets / Giants Super Bowl. However, as you said in this article, there's still a lot that can happen between now and SB Sunday. Let's not get too crazy with visions of NY dominance. When the season ends in a few weeks, THEN we can evaluate the prospects of NY vs NY...assuming both teams are in a position to advance.
This is not a glass half empty approach...I'm a long standing fan of the Jets...you know where I'm coming from...too much can go wrong for this team...so much already has in years past. We J fans always seem to be waiting for the other shoe to drop because it usually does. Except in '69!

Not a Subway Super Bowl. Not Jersey Bowl.

THE BROADWAY BOWL

visit www.Thebroadwaybowl.com and support the name. And sign our petition to to move an all NY super bowl, with Springsteen at the half, back to the meadowlands.

I see a few Jets fans taking a "reality check breath". Very good. As a long time Giants fan, and NOT a Jets "hater", I know nothing is a "gimme", not for the G-Men either. I remember back in '89, we were the team to beat (supposedly) until the Rams knocked us off in the playoffs. And I never hear anyone talking about the "great '89 Rams". In fact, last year's run by us proves the old saying "on any given Sunday......".
There's actually a ton of season left.....a lot can happen. I won't start seriously fantasizing about this until both teams go to their championship games.
4 upset wins in a row like last years Giants is unheard of. Probably just as rare is a playoff tournament going through without at least ONE major upset. As a Giants fan, I of course like our chances....and the Jets look good too. It would be great for us NY sports fans. But I think it is WAAAYYY too early to be printing up those tickets.

one-game-at-a-time. I also have been a fan since 67 season. The 'other shoe' usually fell when we loss to a team with better talent or better coaching. No mystique here. We hire guys to be head coaches from the 'Jet famiklt' like Kotite, Walton and Walt Michaeals. We bypass players in the draft like DT Warren Sapp and OT Tony Munoz and of course drafting Ken O'Brien with Marino sitting on the board. The one time we had the talent on both sides of the ball we play the Mud Bowl. and then there was the time they drafted an OG with a top ten pick and he lasted one year. Parcells picks Belechick to succeed him and Belechik says 'no thanks'...

Not bad karma, just bad Football decisions. al lot of them

BTW we are not alone. The Giants once had both Lombardi and Tom Landry on the staff and gave the head coaching job to Allie Sherman... he was a better interview, I guess

if you consider 2000 'just p1aying' then yea. the difference is that the SB is always intended to be a neutral site.

Everyone seems to have forgotten the Patriots. While not being a fan of theirs, do the Jets seriously think that New England WON'T wind up ahead of them in the AFC East? The 3 AFC games they have left are on the road, and I don't think they win any of them. If they're lucky, they may take Denver. Jets get the wild card and get knocked out in the first round. Happy Golfing!

Glauber, I'm just glad you came to your senses and retracted that insanely idotic statement you made earlier in the year when you said "Pennington would be doing just as good". I'm glad you at least have the courage to admit when you're wrong.
Unlike some other people on here, like JAY, who made stupid remarks and sh-i_t talked about the Jets and Favre and it has come back to smack him in the face.
Hey JAY, lets reminisce shall we. What was it you said at the beginning of the season, oh that's right.

"Favre is washed up, the Jets made a terrible deal"

"Favre is going to play in NY, like Namath played in LA, and Unitas played in San Diego, Terribly!"

"The Jets will win 8 games this year total, 9 if they're lucky, and no playoffs"

Hey Jay, it must really su_c-k being wrong all the time huh?
Just admit how wrong you were, and I'll offer you free football advice next time you feel like making a prediction about an NFL team. I'm here for you buddy.

Didn't you say the same thing before we played them in NE?
Didn't you say the same thing before we played the Titans?
Don't you everget tired of being wrong?

A Jets/Giants Super Bowl? What a boring and disgusting thought. The Giants need to play a real team just like they did last year. I didn't watch the Yankees/Mets World Series and I sure as heck won't be anywhere near a TV if the TV execs set up a Manning v. Favre Super Bowl. Gag me.
