    1) The players are playing for their jobs.

    2) The coaches are playing for their jobs.

    3) They can greatly reduce Miami's playoff hopes.

    4) They can tie for the wildcard, losing on a tie-breaker.

    5) They can have an 8-8 season. This should not be under-estimated for a team that was called the very worst team in the nfl (#32 on most of the rankings) to start the year and for a couple of weeks.

    Personally, I can't hate the pathetic wanabees who play in Jersey. They haven't won much since Namath left. On the other hand, I can certainly hate Miami and want them to lose at every opportunity.

    I'm pretty sure you can still hate them.

    Also, the players are playing for the right to continue playing for a "players coach".

    The Jets always get the last word when it comes to this board. We downgrade them so deeply that they cannot help but play much better than what we insist they are. This year is just one more example--and once again, they split with the division champ.

    PS I was under the impression they are NOT in the wildcard race, so that point can be erased from the lead thread post

    A win would also worsen their draft positionā€”or, at the very least, not improve it any. Right now they'd draft 14th, which would very likely put them out of the running for the better quarterbacks. Who knows, with luck, they can draft another "glitzy" immature quarterbacks who wilts under pressure. :D

    The OP did point out that although they can in principle tie for the WC lead, they'd lose on tiebreakers to everybody with whom they could tie. So it's correct, but it's slim pickings.

    I hate them and I hate those who do not hate them.

    Not really on the latter, but I wish it were so.

    Good question. They last won the title for the 1968 season.

    The Jets drop 9 poistions in the draft with a victory over the Dolphins, i doubt they would want to win and lose the chance to pick the next Mark Sanchez.

    Really? I don't hate Miami all that much. The Pats and Jets have a history with each other involving plenty of ill feelings toward the other. Kind of petty to hate a team for doing well. Which I'd say the Dolphins have done well enough to be a contender for the playoffs. Not sure if there's some other reason to loathe the Dolphins?

    Aww', the Jets have their own little Superbowl.
    Keeping the Phins out of the play offs.

    How cute.

    I guess it's a generational thing. The squish the fish game and the snowplow game were two of the remembered games in patriot history for a reason. Losing in Miami 15 years in a row, and having them knock us out of the playoffs gave us a lasting dislike for the team. And then, of course, there was Don Shula.

    With all due respect MG ... it's impossible to predict an outcome of any loser mentality team.

    Stephen Hawkins [Satirical Jets] Theory:


    I don't believe that the ultimate Jets theory will come by steady work along existing NFL coaching wisdom. We need something new to understand the Jets.

    We can't predict what the Jets will be or when we will find what the Jets are because if we knew that, we would have found the secret to Jets winning the Super Bowl already!


    It could come in the next 20 years for the Jets, but we might never find it ...
    Joe Namath was an aberration - possibly a 12th dimension that will never be witnessed again.

    I agree predicting how the jets "team" will act is impossible.

    You're muddying the waters unnecessarily...let me make it simple using Planck's constant...

    The Planck constant (denoted h, also called Planck's constant) is a physical constant that is the quantum of action in quantum mechanics. The Planck constant was first described as the proportionality constant between the energy (E) of a charged atomic oscillator in the wall of a black body, and the frequency (Ī½) of its associated electromagnetic wave. This relation between the energy and frequency is called the Planck relation:


    E = hv


    in contrast, the Jets constant is denoted by this equation...

    Jets =suck x futility/eternity

    That was an Exhibition game, a Lombardi was given out after the Merger. They don't have a Lombardi.
