    With the Gase hire, after the drafting of Darnold last year and with $100 million in cap space the countdown has officially begun.

    If the New York Jets aren't playing in a Super Bowl within the next five years you can call the Gase hire a bust and possibly Darnold too.

    I'm thinking Super Bowl.

    Fill in your suggestions for 2018!

    So here you have 50 one-line explanations (some would say pathetic & lame excuses) as to why the Jets missed out of the Super Bowl for the past 50 years.
    Hopefully, we'll see the irony, the humor, the bad luck and the repetitive nature of the problems that have befallen the Jets in their quest to win another Super Bowl. It might be fun to see if you could catch all the references, and I hope the old ones are not too obscure.

    1969 Jets play-off chances vs KC blown away by the strong winds at Shea
    1970 Namath injured
    1971 Namath injured
    1972 Jets finish second, only 7 games behind undefeated Dolphins
    1973 Namath injured
    1974 Jets think season begins in Week 9
    1975 Jets fail to live up to unrealistic pre-season expectations
    1976 Lou Holtz thinks NFL season only lasts 13 games
    1977 Not all Alabama QBs drafted in first round are the same
    1978 Matt Robinson comes off bench to spark a promising 8-8 season
    1979 Matt Robinson’s injury leads to a disappointing 8-8 season
    1980 Jets fail to live up to unrealistic pre-season expectations
    1981 Fumble on kick-off leads to unexpected Bills victory over Jets in play- offs
    1982 Todd completes 20 passes, including 5 to Dolphins, in AFC championship game
    1983 Walton turns cap forward, Jets take a step backward
    1984 Gastineau gets O’Brien arrested @ disco, ruins Jets season
    1985 Fumble on kick-off leads to unexpected Pats victory over Jets in play-offs
    1986 Gastineau commits single worst penalty in Jets history, ruins Jets season
    1987 Gastineau crosses picket line, ruins Jets season
    1988 Gastineau quits team, ruins Jets season
    1989 Coach for life Walton coaches one year too long
    1990 New coach, same old Jets
    1991 Blair Thomas fumbles
    1992 Browning Nagle fails to live up to unrealistic pre-season expectations
    1993 Jets’ failure to live up to realistic pre-season expectations gets Coslet canned
    1994 Marino spikes Jets
    1995 Rich Kotite
    1996 Rich Kotite
    1998 Parcells thinks Leon Johnson can pass
    1998 Jets think AFC championship game only 40 minutes long
    1999 Vinny snaps his Achilles
    2000 Groh’s Cavalier attitude costs Jets
    2001 Jets can’t beat Raiders two games in a row
    2002 Jets can’t beat Raiders two seasons in a row
    2003 Chad snaps his wrist
    2004 Herm plays not to win the game vs Steelers
    2005 Jets lose two QBs for season in same game
    2006 Mangenius not enough for Jets to overcome Pats
    2007 Mangidiot too much for Jets to overcome
    2008 Favre shows his privates but hides his injury
    2009 Jets think AFC championship game only 30 minutes long
    2010 Jets think AFC championship game starts at 8:00 pm
    2011 Eric Smith misses tackles on Tebow & Cruz, ruins Jets season
    2012 Sanchez makes too many turnovers
    2013 Geno makes too many turnovers

    2014 Rex loses interest
    2015 Same old Fitz shows up in game 16
    2016 Same old Fitz shows up in game 1
    2017 Jets exceed pre-season win expectation by 5 games, still fall short of play-offs
    2018 FILL IN YOUR SUGGESTIONS

    Hey, it's a strychnine cocktail shaken not stirred! ; )

    I'm pretty sure O'Brien and Gastineau were arrested at Studio 54 in 1983. O'Brien was acquitted and Gastineau got community service.
