    All this hoopla about the Jets being in the AFC title game is making me uneasy.

    I think they should wait until the NYJ actually make the Super Bowl before doing shit like this.

    Yeah, this stinks of jinx. Remember Favre getting the key to the city?

    I don't mind them doing this at this point. Our team has never really been in the spotlight of NYC all that often, and when we have the opportunity for things like this, we should take advantage of it. Say for some reason we lose next week, this would never happen.

    I know, how stupid it is for people to be excited for something that doesn't happen very often. we should all be so fear stricken that we don't enjoy it.

    that's pretty awesome.

    people who are afraid of jinxs are still living in the SOJ's mentality.

    whats funny though is i can see most of us(includiing myself) being cautiously optimistic but not going overboard because we know what can happen.

    that said i see nothing wrong with this. this team hasnt played in an AFC championship game in over a decade. its good for the city and for the jets organization.

    the giants are usually the ones still making noise at this point in the season

    This is a great idea...

    ...if it was put into motion after a superbowl victory.

    Absolutely reminds me of the Favre key to the city nonsense.

    Yeah, what's the deal with worrying about getting jinxed by people celebrating stuff before it happens? What nonsense....

    Revis and this year's team actually accomplished something, unlike the 2008 debacle.
