    The '09 -'11 Jets Elite? Yea or Nay?

    There seems to be some honest disagreement on whether the 09-11 Jets were an "Elite" team. Hopefully this poll will enable an objective consensus we can hang out hats on going forward.

    Merriam-webster defines "elite" as "the best of class; the choice part, the cream; a group of persons who by virtue of position or education exercise much power or influence. Granted "beauty is in the eye of the beholder" and just what constitutes the "cream" is largely subjective but let's make a go of it anyway:

    It doesn't bother me at all. The Patriots are elite and that doesn't bother me. Why would the Jets being elite be an issue? We don't control what the teams we like are doing. I dislike the Patriots as any proper AFC East fan should but it's b/c of jealousy.

    I would say that elite during that span was this:

    That was elite.

    Don't most of those arguments hold through 2012 as well? Why do you think that 2009 - 2011 Jets were elite but not 2009 - 2012? I don't understand how you can wrap a non playoff, 8-8 2011 season with 2 playoff wins in 09 and 2 playoff wins in 10 and call them all elite. If you are going to do that, you might as well consider them elite from 2009 - 2012.

    The Jets have struggled to make it to at least 9 wins 3 out of 4 seasons under Rex. That is not elite.

    The Jets have struggled to win 8 or more games 3 out of 4 seasons under Rex. That is not elite.
    Missing 1 postseason is one thing but 2 in 4 years is half the time. The elite years were '09 & '10 but including 2011 the Jets were still elite overall those 3 years as they were elite 2 of 3 years, now it is 2 of 4 years. 50% of the time doesn't cut it. The elite thing is long gone at this point, they need to re-establish themselves as one of the top teams before I start discussing them as elite again.


    2009-2011:
    most title game apps
    lead AFC in playoff wins
    ties in NFL

    2009-2012:
    SF or GB will be in their 2nd title game, Bal and NE could reahc their 2nd title game so no longer do they stand alone.
    Bal has alreayd caught them in playoff w2isn and can pass them, GB passes them, if NE reaches SB they tie, if Bal wins one more they move ahead.

    the #s aren't quite as impressive as '09-'11. Still a top 10 team overall but not elite.

    You are clearly confusing "bothers" with "makes us laugh hysterically in disbelief that someone would even suggest that".
