I gotta hand it to the Jets. All those years in Giants Stadium, they were model tenants, they always paid their rent on time, never made too much noise, and over a 25 year period, saved enough money to but half a house.
But like a lot of first time home buyers, they are unable to meet their mortgage payments, (they have yet to sell out the stadium) and since their is no loan modification program available, they have resorted to desperately hawking their team on this HBO show.
Have you ever seen a team that has done so little claim to be so great?
They last time they won it all Lombardi was a person, not a trophy.
This was a 9-7 team that made the playoffs when the last two teams on their schedule had nothing to play for.
In the playoffs, they beat the Chargers when the best field goal kicker in the league shanked three kicks, and when they played the Colts their so called great defense was toyed with by Peyton Manning like he was a cat and they were a ball of yarn.
But what could you expect from a defense that blew four 4th quarter leads last year?
And since then, they got rid of their best running back (Jones) an excellent offensive lineman (Faneca) and are relying on a 2nd year QB who was 2nd in the league in interceptions.
Oh yeah, there best player--by far-- is still holding out.
Not exactly the Steelers of the 70's we are talking about.
And by the way, why do they need there own show on HBO?
Antonio Cromartie already has a television show, All My Children.
