NO team has more playoff wins in the last 3 years
That is ELITE
elite teams are the top teams in the league, if the Jets have the most playoff wins in the last 3 years under rex(share w/ GB, NYG, NO), the most title game apps(by themselves), the most playoff wins in the AFC in the last 3 years- how are they not elite? They weren't elite last year obviously but over the 3 years of rex they have been elite.
You'll tell me NE is elite w/ 2 playoff wins in 3 seasons but the Jets w/ 4(including beating up NE on the road in the '10 div rd) are not? Interesting.
And you can flaunt your "two years in a row" stat all you want. But which is more impressive? A Vince Lombardi trophy or a piece of paper that says "two consecutive AFC championship appearance"? I would want the trophy if it were me. But then again, if I was having a pissing contest with a division rival I guess a piece of paper isn't too bad either. But you wouldn't hear me bragging about it.

The Jets played tougher teams in the title game and didn't get the huge breaks the giants got.
ONLY team to win reach 2 conf title games, no team has more playoff wins in last 3 years. That is elite.
Who do you consider the elite teams?
i dont care whose elite and whose not. all i can tell you is if i have a choice of which team to play in one game, new england or the jest, i would take playing against jest 10 out of 10 times. i always look forward to our annual win against the jest. after all, they are the worst team in the afc east long history.
It doesn't matter how tough your opponent. A win is a win, whether its by three point ls or twenty.
And again, those two title game appearances are only impressive in a divisional pissing contest. And in a division that has the Patriots in it, it is even less impressive. But you'll just throw the narrowed timeline at me again so whatever.
As for teams I consider elite, The Patriots and the Steelers are the only two that I think of when you say elite.

Jets 4-2 in postseason including whipping of Pats
NE 2-3 including being whipped by the Jets at home
It's nice that you have such high standards for your team where you are out of the race by October but are happy to win a meaningles game against us. When we dominated Miami in the late 90s-early 00s(won 8 straight) and Miami was making the playoffs while we were missing most years I wasn't happy.

In that span the Jets have advanced further than NE 2 of 3 times, have twice as many playoff wins and beat up NE on the road in the '10 div rd. How are the Pats elite and the Jets not?
