    02' and 04'.

    02' was great because after the Bears loss, I thought that was it for the Jets...But into the final week, i'm watching New England pull off that comeback against Miami, and just busted open with enjoyment, of course the Jets pull off the win against Green Bay, then blank out Manning. After a 2-5 start, who knew?

    2004 was memorable with the 5-0 vs. 5-0 game where the Jets only lost 13-7 at New England, so it boosted my confidence in this team, crushing devastation against Baltimore, but it turned out alright. It was great seeing Vilma and Coleman come in together and produce great as rookies, and for Chad to beat San Diego with a torn labrum was amazing, his throw to Santana will never be forgotten.

    Then of course, the 1st TRUE heartbreak I experienced as a Jets fan(1998 was tough, but being 11 years old I wasn't quite as passionate towards the Jets)...The Doug Brien miss will be a bad bad memory with me, I was so excited with the chance to win only for him to completely MISS. Tears came after Jeff Reed's made field goal and that was that...

    How about 1986? I am sure you remember. Don't play young pup. You had to be around 11 or 12...:wink:

    1968, 1981, 1982, 1998, and 2002 were all magical in some way.

    Best day at stadium- beating GB in 2002 finale to win division after NE's miracle comeback agains the fish.

    Honorable Mention in chronological orger
    - 1) beating GB to make playoffs in '81
    2)Beating NE in OT in '85
    3) Knocking the Giants out of the playoffs in '88
    4) Beating NE in '98 finale - it was a celebration rather than a game
    5) Beating Jacksonvill in '98 playoffs
    6) Monday Night Miracle in 2000
    7) Beating the Colts 41-0 in 2002 playoffs

    No disrespect at all, I like you as a poster...But you, as a Veteran Jets fan, it even pains me that only 5 years were memorable for an elder Jets fan who's seen it all...

    I've dealt with hell with the Doug Brien miss and i'm only 19!...Is this what I have to look forward to!?

    :wink:

    1996 - This was the year that proved to me that the Jets meant so much in my life. Just being tormented every week, To be in the stands for every game and being able to Smoke Cigars at your seat and sneak in beers, what a difference 10 years makes.

    1998 - Obvious choice, But some special games included the Testaverde phantom TD against a good Seattle team that Cost Erickson his job. A game late in the season, against the Pats when we had things basically wrapped up. I believe it was The day before New Years and everyone had Hats and Blowers. Playoff Game against Jax.

    02, because I remember with a few weeks to go in the season working out that the Jets needed 7 games to go the right way to make the playoffs, and they got every single one of them, including Miami WINNING in Minnesota. It was astounding how it worked out.

    1998 hands down! The most proud season to be a Jets' fan!

    There were others that were memorable, but these were the most memorable. 1985 and 1986 were good years, for example. So was 2004. However, you are right, the memorable years have been few and far between. Welcome to life as a Jet fan.

    1998 without a doubt. 2 seasons removed from 1-15, the fire power of our offense, the tenacity of our defense, and 30 friggin' minutes away from the Super Bowl. We would have KILLED the Falcons.
