Happy Anniversary, champ.
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.
Well, 12 Jan 2069 isn't that far off.. I'll be 114 years old by then.
Don't go anywhere this time. FYI. Worrying about health of @championjets69 - He isn't around lately. I hope he is good and healthy.
I would've thought somebody would have posted about our 50th anniversary sooner than 5:54am on Jan 12th, LOL

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.

I'm pretty sure O'Brien and Gastineau were arrested at Studio 54 in 1983. O'Brien was acquitted and Gastineau got community service.
At least it wasn't Plato's Retreat...
