Realistically the '09 jest did not do anything in that calendar year to make any claim of being "elite." They were 7-7 with 2 lay downs, lost 6 out of 7, managed to beat teams with a cumulative sub .400 winning record (only that high because they beat Houston in game 1). Charity notwithstanding, nor beating a dead Cinci team and a kicker who crapped the bed even more than mr 60QBR .490 completion Buttchez, that happened in 2010. You can add those "victories" to that season's 11 and you have a good 2010. Sure the jest won 2 PO games in calendar '11, but ended up 8-8 losing 5 of the last 9 games which sort of defeats any claims of elitism. So bottom line, 2010 was the Jets only good year, but far from elite since there was absolutely no hardware of any kind.
