    Exactly - my cousin the Eagles fan texted me saying "Joe Namath is there!" and I texted back "Don't care!".

    You have every reason to believe that. We all do until the Jets ownership shows us some results.

    Real Jets fans don't give the Pats credit ever. Real Jets fans don't cave. Real Jets fans have excuses to deflect credit. Grow a pair.

    As an example of what a real Jets fan would do:

    It's clear Gurley couldn't go full out and Kupps loss of production made game planing for a third rate NFL back and Brandon Cooks as the only viable threats a slam dunk for any competent NFL defensive coordinator.

    Let's hope when our regime goes against the Pats in meaningful games we have a full compliment of credible threats they have to defend and execute it so we can expose the Pats as the complete frauds they are.

    Carry on with your slobber fest. Make sure you keep your back to the float at the Pats parade. I'm watching you.

    As would I.

    It’ll be an amazing moment and at least for that year we’ll be the best there is.

    Same here. I did listen to the ceremony during the drive home.

    I had the same reaction as the OP when they said Namath was presenting the trophy.

    I was young and basketball certainly wasn't my #1 sport, but as a Knicks fan I hated the Bulls and all of the front runner Bulls fans around. The thing with Jordan at least was that he did it all in a span of 8 years (2 of which he didn't play). Sure, as an opposing fan you hated seeing your team lose, but there also wasn't as much Bulls fatigue since it happened so quickly and then was done. This Patriots thing has been lingering for almost two decades. They haven't won every year, but they're in the SB half the time and in the AFC Championship Game almost every year as well.

    That's a good point. Having this dynasty stretched out over almost 20 years is what's been the most unbearable.

    You can even take another one with the Islanders dynasty in the early 80s. I wasn't alive for it, but it was certainly painful for any Rangers fan to go through, especially during their big drought of no Cups. However, while the wounds were fresh throughout the late 80s and early 90s, the Rangers finally winning the Cup is what kind of pushed the Islanders dynasty to the side. Of course, that coupled with the Islanders becoming a joke of a team for 20 years didn't hurt.

    If the Jets can finally win a SB, all of those years of Patriots dominance will feel like a distant memory. Big IF though with this franchise.

    I was personally disgusted by Namath agreeing to do that. It actually made me feel sick to my stomach. He has lost a shitload of respect from me for that. I don't care what the reason(s) were, that's our arch enemy right there. Fuck them.

    Too bad.

    Watching the Pats lose the big game in '86, '97, '08, '12, and '18, have been some of my favorite football moments.

    I liked Namath and the Jets being highlighted during the SB...they has a nice piece on Namath during the pre-game. I'm not mad.

    Is he the only super bowl winning QB that has done that? I very much doubt it. Plus when he agreed he didn't know that the Patriots would win. Wasn't that before the Chiefs were eliminated?

    Was the 50th anniversary of his win, dude.

    Were they going to ask Earl Morral?

    Yeah, but you won't care once the Jets win one.

    Yankees fans always threw the 27 championships in Boston fans face, but once the Sox beat them it just doesn't matter (at least to me). It's not how many, it's about the one right now.

    Damn straight! We may not have won a Super Bowl in 50 years, but for off-season championships the Jets are a dynasty of epic proportions.

    I am so proud to be a Jets fan.... I can’t wait to get the off-season crown this August. They give it out in August, right?

    I watched because I was happy for the Patriots even though I'm a big Jet fan. I admire Brady's and Bellicheck's commitment to excellence and hard work ethic. Brady is an underdog, a guy with inferior athletic skills, but has a big heart and just wins! You have to love that.

    its one thing to recognize greatness, but it's another to get on your knees and slurp Brady and BB's juices.

    Hopefully the Jets will be the ones to end their reign for good.

    GTFO. The odds are so stacked against this "dynasty" that the only thing they can do is change the odds in their favor, which they have been caught doing twice now. I respect nothing about what these cheating fuckers do.
