0000 52nd anniversary image  copy.jpg




Jete (pron. jeet): 1. formerly Jets, New Jersey-based quasi-professional football team renamed by retired player Tony Richardson during the 2017 NFL draft.

stank (pron. staynk): 1. a past of stink; 2. condition endemic to the New Jersey Jete, characterized by a mixed odor of burnt hair/used motor oil/rotting swamp flora accompanying feelings of despair and futility from on-field ineptitude.



Affliction Begets Pandemic

Some call it the ultimate ruse: New Jersey Jete owner and pharmaceutical magnate Woody Johnson spawning Covid-19 from the mental/olfactory malady known as “Jete stank” in a diabolical quest for federal vaccine funding. Belief that the deadly Covid pandemic originated in East Rutherford, N.J. – not China – has gained traction with Qanon faithful and like-minded conspiracy buffs across the globe. Their theory is chillingly compelling. Noting unusual tolerance for bad football by an eagerly masochistic fan base, Woody ordered Johnson & Johnson chemists to craft a potently infectious somatic variant from the “stank blueprint” – blending Wrecks Ryan-procured toe fungus, local swamp gas extract and Sam Darnold mononucleosis samples as viral building blocks. Johnson reasoned that if fans so disregarded their own psychological wellbeing by continually attending Jete games, they’d similarly dismiss an overt physical health threat. His dark gamble proved correct as the New Jersey-New York region became America’s pandemic epicenter in early 2020. After more-reputable rivals Pfizer and Moderna seized early leads in Operation Warp Speed vaccine development, Johnson & Johnson wormed its way into the federal sweepstakes with a cheap, expedient “one-shot” pitch. That pitch came with a hitch, however. Johnson & Johnson’s already shoddy public image took another massive hit when the U.S. Food and Drug Administration paused vaccine production upon reports of dangerous side effects. Recipients now are issued a warning with their J&J shots. Meanwhile, Woody’s football team gets its umpteenth “fresh start” after a disastrous 2-14 campaign in 2020, trotting out new coach No. 22 and second rookie “franchise-savior” quarterback in just three years. The question remains, will 2021 Jete season tickets also include a public service warning?

* Quarterback Christian Quackenbush, picked 51st overall by the Jete in the second round of the 2016 draft, is traded to the Oakland Raiders for a seventh-round pick. He never saw the field for New Jersey during the regular season in 2016 or 2017 despite being heralded as a top prospect out of Penn State.

* In true Jete fashion, Darnit's first regular-season pass is intercepted and returned for a touchdown by Detroit. But the Lions quit early and allow visiting New Jersey to win. Led by now-fair weather mascot Fireman Ed, moronic Jete fans in attendance rudely disrespect their hosts by loudly shouting the pointless and obnoxious J-E-T-E chant at game's end.
* Jete lose to the Cleveland Browns, giving the Browns their first win in two years. Dam Darnit interceptions factor into the embarrassing loss. Visiting Jete fans could be heard doing their moronic chant when their team was ahead, only to deservedly leave bitterly disappointed.

FRONT-OFFICE DESPERATION, MORAL/ETHICAL BANKRUPTCY, BLATANT AMATEURISM

* The Jete hire as defensive coordinator the well-traveled Gregg Williams, mastermind of the infamous New Orleans Saints "bountygate" scandal for which he was suspended. The NFL still is investigating allegations that Williams ran a similar bounty program during his stint with the Washington Redskins.
* Self-styled social media star Jamal "Punk" Adams, erstwhile Jete safety, injures Patriots mascot in an unstaged tackle during practice at the Pro Bowl. Adams tweets a video of the ill-advised stunt saying it was for all "Patriots haters."

* Jete co-owner Chris "Dimwit" Johnson fires GM Maccromagnon in mid-May, AFTER the draft and free agency, then inexplicably foists GM duties onto new head coach Googly Gaze. Reports surface that Gaze didn't want to hire defensive coordinator Williams or sign running back Levon Belch.
* Journeyman exec Joe Douglas is hired as Jete General Manager just three months before start of the 2019 season.
* More evidence that being with the Jete drives players to drink and menace society: after pleading guilty to a 2018 DUI charge, tight end Chris Herndon faces a likely suspension to start the 2019 season. Also, former Jete defensive lineman Muhammad Wilkerson is arrested in New York City and charged with DUI on June 1, 2019.
* Levon Belch creates another distraction by calling 911 to report that two women he left naked in his bed to go to the gym stole $1M worth of cash, jewelry and clothing from his Florida home on May 25, 2019. Police promise to investigate once they stop laughing.
* Jete 2019 third-round pick linebacker Jackass ImPolite (Jachai Polite) is cut after amassing more than $100,000 in team fines during training camp. Meanwhile, No. 3 overall pick nose tackle Quinine Williams fails to crack the starting lineup.
* Jete draft gigantic offensive lineman Mekhi “Messy Bacon” Becton in the 2020 draft’s first round. Bacon says, “"I just love the NY griminess, it’s a real tough place."

* Jete release disgruntled running back Levon Belch, who quickly is signed by the Super Bowl-bound Kansas City Chiefs.
* Jete become the NFL’s first team eliminated from 2020 playoff contention after going 0-10 en route to a franchise-worst 0-13 start and 2-14 record overall.
* Jete fire defensive coordinator Williams after he calls all-out blitz on a Raiders Hail Mary play, losing the game with 5 seconds left and dropping New Jersey to 0-12.
* Jete officially fire Gase, the team’s 21st head coach, on Jan. 3, 2021 – about two weeks after leaking news he was a goner.
* Jete hire 49ers Defensive Coordinator Robert Saleh as head coach on Jan. 14. 2021. Saleh has no experience coaching offense at the college or pro levels.
* Jete trade alleged franchise-saving quarterback Damn Darnit to the Carolina Panthers for draft picks, highest being a second-rounded in 2022.
* Jete currently have the longest active postseason drought in the NFL, last making the playoffs in 2010.
* Because new coach Robert Saleh has difficulty remembering player names, the Jete draft two 2021 rookies named Michael Carter.
* Jete draft yet another supposed franchise-saving rookie quarterback, taking the pubescent Zach Wilson No. 2 overall.
* Wilson is tied to controversial right-wing Twitter posts; New York media fawns over his "hot" mother.
* Saleh admits to media members he forgot he was head coach during a morning organized team activity session.
* Jete TikTok account uploads then deletes video that appears to show a twerking teen-age girl shooting a football from her butt.

More to come … please chime in with your own border-war lowlights.

Remember, folks: "Jets Suck" is not simply about them sucking on the field of play. That almost is peripheral to the true essence of Jete suckage, as bad as they can be between those white lines. They suck first and foremost as an organization devoid of scruples, integrity, honesty, proper hygiene or other remotely redeeming qualities.

I sat out of these threads in recent years because I didn't even consider the Jets an actual rival, let alone one worthy of a megathread (2010 was a long time ago). Now that we both took a QB in the first round, it's back on. **** the Jest.

I do have to express some small disappointment that this is all you have to say about the jete‘n jetenest jete moment of all jete time? What the Jete tunes?

Here:

Excerpts:

The Butt Fumble was a notorious American football play from a National Football League (NFL) game played on Thanksgiving Day, November 22, 2012 between the New York Jets and New England Patriots.

In front of the home crowd of over 79,000 fans at MetLife Stadium and a primetime television audience of over 20 million, Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez collided with the rear end of his teammate, offensive lineman Brandon Moore, causing a fumble, which was then recovered by the Patriots' safety Steve Gregory and returned for a touchdown. The play was the centerpiece of a disastrous sequence in the second quarter, wherein the Jets lost three fumbles and the Patriots scored three touchdowns—one each on offense, defense, and special teams—all in the span of 52 seconds of game time. In that second quarter, the Jets held the ball for over 12 minutes (out of a possible 15), but managed to be outscored 35–3.

The game and the infamous "butt fumble" in particular are remembered as the low point of the Jets' 2012 season as the embarrassing loss was the team's seventh of the 2012 season, all but eliminating them from earning a playoff berth. The butt fumble is often considered one of the most inept plays in NFL history and is also ranked as the most embarrassing moment in Jets history by ESPN.

Butt fumble play​

The Jets lined up in an I formation, with Sanchez under center. Fullback Lex Hilliard was lined up behind Sanchez in the I, with Greene the deep back. The play call was for Sanchez to fake a toss to Greene running left, while Hilliard would take the handoff from Sanchez running a dive play to the right.
When Sanchez took the snap, he mistakenly turned to the left and Hilliard ran past him. Trying to salvage the broken play, Sanchez scrambled forward towards the line of scrimmage. While this was going on, right guard Brandon Moore was attempting to block defensive tackle Vince Wilfork so the play could develop and the two were locked together at the 32-yard line. Sanchez decided to slide to protect himself, not realizing where he or his lineman was. As such, when he started the slide Sanchez hit Moore in his rear end, immediately losing his balance and possession of the football. As Sanchez fell to the turf and Moore fell on top of him, the football bounced out to the right side of the play, near the 32-yard line, directly in front of Steve Gregory, whose earlier recovery resulted in Vereen’s touchdown. Gregory collected the ball with his fingertips and ran untouched into the Jets' end zone for a scoop-and-score touchdown. With the extra point, the Patriots took a 21–0 lead.

Joe McKnight’s fumble​

Then, as if things could not get any worse for the Jets, they allowed another turnover and score the very next time they touched the ball. On the kickoff following the Butt Fumble touchdown, Jets return specialist Joe McKnight fumbled the ball into the air and Patriots' receiver Julian Edelman caught the fumble in mid-air, and returned it 22 yards for New England’s third touchdown in 52 seconds of play, giving them a 28-0 lead. The TV cameras found Jets coach Rex Ryan on the sideline exclaiming, "Un-****ing-believable!"
Some Jets fans began to leave as the ones who stayed voiced their displeasure with the way the team had played so far. Many turned their ire on Sanchez and began chanting for Ryan to insert backup Tim Tebow into the game. However, the Jets did not disclose until after the game that Tebow had been nursing an injury and, despite listing him as active, would not play him in the game.

Rest of the game​

By the two-minute warning before half time, the score was 35–0 after Edelman caught a 56-yard touchdown from Brady. The stadium loudspeakers played "It Ain't Over 'til It's Over."
Nick Folk put the Jets on the board before the half ended with a field goal and the Jets managed to get within 35-12 after a Patriots safety and a Bilal Powell run, but Brady and Stevan Ridley rushed for fourth quarter touchdowns and Dustin Keller caught a late touchdown to close out the scoring.

The Butt Fumble’s legacy​

Within minutes, viral video of the butt fumble spread on the Internet, and it was widely mocked in the news media over the following week.[30] "Butt Fumble" is the official NFL name for the play.
When Sanchez watched the replay with some of his teammates, they were generally supportive. "Hopefully we'll laugh about it later," he said.[32] Moore remarked of the play's popularity, "The littlest things nowadays turn into Internet sensations. It's not surprising." When asked if he found the play amusing, Moore answered, "No."
In August 2013, New York Post sports reporter Justin Terranova wrote that the butt fumble "has come to define Sanchez's downfall with the Jets".[33] Terranova wrote that the play had unfairly overshadowed Sanchez's AFC Championship campaigns in the previous two seasons, as well as Moore's "ten years manning a generally-solid Jets offensive line." When Moore retired in 2013, he reflected on the play, "It's amusing to me that people think it's so amusing. The way I look at it, I don't think it should have any link to my career. I don't think it stands for what I was as a player for 10 years. I really don't give it much thought."
Shortly after the game, Sanchez remarked, "It's the way it goes and will probably be on a blooper reel for a while. That's just part of playing."
Sanchez would be proven right by ESPN's SportsCenter. At the time, SportsCenter had what they called "Not Top 10" blooper reel segment, which aired every Friday morning during the daytime edition of the program and featured a segment titled “Worst of the Worst”, where fans voted online as to whether or not the #1 play on that week’s Not Top 10 was worse than the play that had previously won the vote. The Butt Fumble was chosen as the worst play in the Not Top 10 that aired the day after the game, and fans chose it as the Worst of the Worst shortly thereafter.
Anchor Jay Crawford compared the lowlight with the Stanford Band's involvement in The Play during the 1982 CalStanford Big Game, and with Jean van de Velde's meltdown at the 1999 Open Championship. Anchor Kevin Negandhi listed the ingredients that contribute to the play's longevity: it features a celebrity on a well-known team making an embarrassing mistake that is immediately punished by the opposing team scoring, and the comedic "butt fumble" nickname completes "the perfect storm."
Sanchez addressed the coverage in an August 2013 interview: "People ask me about the butt fumble and say, 'Gosh, doesn't that really bum you out?' Are you kidding me? You think every Friday if it comes on 'SportsCenter' I'm just down in the dumps? Who cares? I'm working out. I'm hanging with my family. I'm doing some charity thing. It's the last thing on my mind."
For forty consecutive weeks, each Not Top 10 finished with the Butt Fumble as the Worst of the Worst. Not only were fans still voting for it nearly ten months after it originally occurred, none of the plays that made the worst of the week before even came close to defeating it in the Worst of the Worst vote. On September 6, 2013, ESPN decided that it was time to move on from the Butt Fumble and retired the play from further Worst of the Worst consideration. A SportsCenter producer explained that it was time to "start fresh" as the 2013 NFL seasonbegan. Negandhi concluded, "Time to get some new material and years from now, when we see a really bad play, we'll say, 'But can it compare to the Butt Fumble?' That is setting a legacy." Before retiring the play, ESPN subjected it to analysis on its "Sports Science" segment. In this segment, they show how Sanchez's speed combined with the angle of impact created a force of over 1,300 pounds, well over the 125 pounds required to cause a fumble.
The NFL auctioned Sanchez's jersey from the game in May 2015 for charity for $820. The winning bidder, a Jets fan, said that friends had often ridiculed the play, and bought the jersey to prevent an "anti-fan" from doing so. He said he would frame and display it until the Jets win another Super Bowl. CBS Sports joked, "So basically, the jersey will be up on his wall forever".
On September 29, 2013 another buttock-related fumble involved the NY Jets. In a 38–13 loss at the Titans, new Jets starter Geno Smith was sacked by Titans defensive end Karl Klug; Smith tried to switch the ball behind his back but it brushed off his buttocks and Klug grabbed it and rolled into the end zone.

In 2019, the NFL named it the 99th greatest play of all time.
