The Jets have never been an elite franchise.
The Patriots winning the division every year, winning three Super Bowls, and building a dynasty, that is elite. The Cowboys of the '90s, they were elite. The Walsh 49ers, the 72-73 Dolphins, the Steel Curtain, those were elite teams.
A couple of road playoff wins after backing in to the postseason and then getting clowned on in the championship games does not an elite team make.
God bless, I'll hang up and listen.
Packers with Lombardi
Phins with the undefeated team, back to back SB titles, and 3 SB trips in a row
Steelers with the curtain
9ers of the 80s
Cowboys of the 90s
Patriots with Belichick/Brady
NY Jets....... complete opposite of elite. Never have been elite, never will be.
Bill Belichick on "putting the tape on"
it must be so sad that you have nothing to talk about except the 70s.
