    Herm,Mangini,Rex & Bowles would all cringe hearing that philosphy.Thats been a residual affect of all these conservative defensive head coaches;We lost the real roots of this team that existed up until Parcells arrival.Win or lose for better or worse the Jets PLAYED like Jets.And not anything to do w the cheesy Rex mantra that he deliberately stole from the Ravens.

    Its starting to appear that Lucifer has refunded Joe's soul to him and lifted the curse of '69.

    Knock on wood.

    It's not about tanking and two lost second round picks and perfectly scripted drafts etc. etc.. It's about that; a paradigm shift with Providence. It was always gonna be about that.

    It's somehow tied to Trump and The Woodster's man love for him and Woody goin' across the pond the fuck outta here. The shit shifted :D

    Maybe Lucifer traded Joe's soul for Woody's....The price for lifting the curse evidently. :D

    During a 1971 preseason game against Detroit, after throwing an interception, Jets QB Joe Namath severely damaged his knee while attempting to tackle Lions' LB Mike Lucci. This guy was a superstar at the time and was trying to tackle a LB after throwing a pick in a meaningless exhibition game. Probably the greatest testament to Namath's toughness and competitive nature.

    Wish he could suit up now. With the way pass coverages have been watered down, Namath would have a field day. Plus the innovations in offenses (west coast, wildcat, spread). It would be fun to see.

    I remember that. Sucked all the oxygen out of the team. But you're are right Namath didn't view it like a preseason game.
