    Bottom line as always we miss the long time fans in a big way but things are settling down and we are starting to get vibe back a that's because of the our new leaders and winning ways.

    Not really sure how I got screwed? I pay less for my current seats than my old ones. In the first row with no one in front of me and on the aisle. Sure people who had mezzanine and lower level seats got screwed but I don't need to protest for them. Still have a tailgate party with 15-20 people every home game win or lose. In 2012 I had to miss a couple games because I had surgery on my leg. The year before I strongly contemplated giving up the seats and calling it a day. Sitting home a couple games made me realize how much I needed to keep doing it because being home to watch the games was miserable for me.

    Cheapest yellow parking pass for next Sunday is $84.09 with fees. Unbelievable what people will pay for parking.

    And parking for Giants/Boys for yellow is $48. Tickets are another story. Why is our parking higher then there's but tics not even close? Weird. Its gonna be cold on Sunday morning in the lot. Yeah, break out the Jets gear. I have a set of stuff for every 10 degress

    So far this season I've had decent experience when leaving the lot to head home.

    Week 1 I had to wait at least 20 minutes to exit only to be misdirected out of my way and I had to get on the highway just to wrap around.

    Week 3 though I was in and out fairly quickly,

    Getting to Metlife from Brooklyn both games has been a breeze. In the lot and setting up 9:30AM.

    Probably lack of STHs these days. People who Stubhub it still need to buy a parking pass. I'm sure the Jets have some of these passes given to brokers and may even put some of their own passes on NFL Ticket Exchange. Either way since there are so many people who Stubhub it for the Jets they still need a parking pass and those are in high demand.

    I will still wear my shorts Sunday (crazy I know) but I always try to wear them until mid November if possible and hopefully it warms up by noon time. I'll probably be wearing a couple underarmour layers though. I don't think I will need the heater or tent enclosure though. When I show up on line around 7:30 for the lots to open at 8 it will be a bit chilly for sure.

    Hey there. I got Orange Parking and I would like to park comfortably at Lot K.

    What time does that lot full so I leave my home accordingly?

    I usually pull in to lot K by 10am with absolutely no trouble. I'd guess you're good to go up until noon or so - BUT when I am in the lot I can't tell when the attendants are keeping cars from coming in. Are you planning to tailgate? I'd say, comfortable by 11am.

    Thanks. I won't tailgate. Will park my car and go to Lot D to join my friends' tailgate. I will target for 10 AM anyway so from what you say, I should be good.

    On a football note, this is a huge game for us. Can we handle a little success. Can our new coach have this team ready to play coming out of a bye unlike our last coach. Can we beat an NFC east team. Can we win the week prior to playing the Pats. Can we build a home field advantage. Can we go to 4-1. No excuse to trip up here if we want to be a playoff team. I can't wait. Expect a pumped up crowd. I think dominating defenses make for very loud fans, we just might have one. That and the fact the cool weather makes it seem like the games are more important because its later in the season. I am so so pumped to get out in the lot. Its been 3 weeks since the last home game and its going to be another 3 weeks before the next one and then its 2 home games in 5 days. Honestly, ex hardcore season ticket holders, when you wake up on Sunday just a little sad you are not going to the lot to smell meat and throw pig skin? Come on, tell the truth.

    I am not a STH and go only like 2 or 3 games a year. I am so happy I purchased my tickets for this game in advance. I didn't know we would be 3-1 before this game so I feel lucky. My next ticket is for Titans game so here I am hoping before the Titans game we will be in the play off race so I can enjoy another high profile game. :)

    I have to agree. For a team that's playing well and with high hopes, not sure why tickets are not going for much higher prices. I became a STH this year but every game so far I could have bought for lower than face value. ( The home opener was going for $7!!!). The pre season games are a complete joke. With that said, I will probably not renew and just buy every game next year on SH. Plus if I cant get to a game, I do not have to worry about unloading the tickets. But it is fun to go to the games and I am enjoying it. Go Jets!

    I'm as big a fan as you are, but the fact is, the Jets playing in Jersey just isn't a huge ticket. For really big games you'll pay over face but not to the extent that Giants fans do. It is what it is. But, that can work to your advantage going game by game, as I have done after 34 years having seasons. I'm not a genius, I'm not trying to beat the system, but since I live close to the stadium now, I can go every week to tailgate and get into the stadium most of the time. Once I got over not being at every game, I've been content with 6 of 8 with no preseason game expense. Do I miss having secured tix for all home games? Yes. Do I regret doing it this way? Not at all. I love going to the games, and it is possible to do so spending less than a season ticket holder does. This year so far I am 3-3 on tailgate parties, 2-3 on games. eagles fans drove those prices too high. I have no doubts I'll be at the Jax game.

    Regarding $7 for the opener, that may have been possible at noon, but it's tough to print them out and drive there with enough time to tailgate and get in, even if you live close by. I paid $60 for uppers for that one. Eagle tix for shitty seats were $118. I Paid $105 today and had good seats.

    Fair enough. I am damm tired after getting home, not as young as used to be. I enjoyed my day immensely now that I get to the lot between 945-1000 much better then 845. Great day whether home or at the game. Its great watching a jet team that does not panic. Winning that game was never in doubt in my mind, just a feeling this team gives me. Talk about halftime adjustments. 34-0 jets in 3rd qtr.

    That's exactly why as much as I would like to go to the Bills game I think i will pass if I do I know I have zero shot at going to wrk Friday ,,,,,,my buddy who attended Sunday said almost exactly what you did,,,,he said " I can't remember the last stress free game I've gone to, I never thought we were going to lose or blow it "
