elite = greatest (from the dictionary)
greatest > great (from the dictionary)
SB win = great (according to you)
Don't make the SB = elite (according to you)
Don't make SB > SB win (according to your logic) ???
Now do you realize why nobody can understand what the heck you are saying? Unlike you, I actually count the regular season games. The Jets have not won a division title over that stretch. I wouldn't hang my hat on one decent season (2010) and call my team elite. Making the conf championship does not make them a top 4 team. To think that, you'd have to assume that the best team wins every single game and THAT SIMPLY ISN'T TRUE. It is not uncommon for a lesser team to beat a better team. They even have a saying for it - "That's why they play the games!"
Everybody except for you seems to realize this.....
