    Like the JETS record isn't about smoke and mirrors given they were a missed point after (not to mention a fragile as glass QB) away from losing back to back games coming off their bye to the mighty Lions...

    No s#$t!

    I have several friends that are Jets fans, and even they admit alot of fortune has befallen that team this year.

    -Favre did everything to HAND them that Monday night game. He kicked the ball around like his name was Pele. And they STILL almost won in the second half.

    -4th down PI in the Denver game. No saying the call wasn't correct. But the outcome was most definitly born of luck. Not to mention there was a TON of dropped INT's for Sanchez in that game.

    -Lions game. Good lord. If they don't lose there kicker, they get the extra point. Which makes it a 4pt game with a little over a min. to go. No timeouts for the Jets. I mean, MAYBE they could score the TD, but I wouldn't have bet on it. Plus, with a TD lead, I'm sure the Lions run on that 3rd down play and take the clock under a min.

    I still say you make your own luck, and the Jets are a good football team. But anyone that says our record is smoke and mirrors needs to open their eyes to other things around them.

    Beating one team with a winning record is nothing to crow about.

    You can only play who is on your schedule last time I checked.

    Also there are no great teams this year.

    Had the Jets gone into Cleveland last week they would have lost. The Pats getting crushed last week gave them a heads up to what Cleveland is capable of at home. Still not remotely impressed with their win today, especially given the aforementioned circumstances. They knew it would be a tough game and they barely got the win. I thought they were supposed to be invincible?

    Both teams aren't as good as their records would appear to make them seem.

    I was thinking the same thing. It's so week to week around this league.
