    You can use playoff wins all you want, but Pitt had a bye week in 2010 and that counts for something. The Jets were a WC team both years (9-7 and 11-5 compared to Pitt 12-4 times 2) and played in 6 playoff games with no Super Bowl app. The Jets 2 year run ended with nothing. Pitt played in 4 playoff games including the Super Bowl. This is what I find funny, you talk up the Jets AFCC game losses and try to argue that the Jets are better because of 2 more playoff wins. The Steelers actually won an AFCC game and played in a Super Bowl in the last 4 years. You always talk down NE's division titles in 2009 and 2010 saying what would they prefer a division title or the Jets playoff wins. Pitt has better regular season records and a trip to the Super Bowl. Which would you prefer? 2 more meaningless playoff wins, or playing in the Super Bowl?

    Pitt is NE of the AFC North. They have to deal with Bal, which is a lot tougher than what NE has to deal with in the AFCE.

    Pitt had a bye week b/c they don't have NE in their division, if they did they would be a WC team.

    Woulda's and Coulda's but only when convenient.

    Fact: as proven in the game the Colts starters were actually trying to win:

    If the Colts played their starters in game 15, the jest would have been home in front of the big screens watching the postseason.

    No one in the ACFE comes close to the caliber of rivalry between the Ravens and Steelers. You can maybe make a case that NE is a notch above either, and maybe not if you consider the 3 teams they feast off, but of those 3, none come close to either Pittsburgh or Baltimore so the level of competition and success is elevated over the AFC East.

    How can it be that the elite Jets can't finish ahead of New England in the division?

    But you're elite. Elite doesn't mean being incapable of overcoming NE. You aren't annually contending anything. You're 14-18 the last two years.

    Pitt had a bye week because they did something the Jets have only done once in franchise history. Win 12 games. NE only won 10 games in 2009, and 12 games in 2012. If the Jets were better than Pitt, they would have been able to win the division in either of those seasons. Pitt won 12 games in 2010 and 2011. Bal also won 12 games in 2010 and 2011.

    Ravens in 4 seasons = 43-21 ----- 2 AFCC games and 1 Super Bowl app
    Steelers in 4 seasons = 41-23 ----- 1 AFCC game and 1 Super Bowl app
    Jets in 4 seasons = 34 -30 -----2 AFCC games and no Super Bowl app

    they had a bye week b/c they don't have to deal with the Pats. if Ne was in their division they wouldn't have won 12 games and wouldn't have won a div title.

    all 3 are elite.

    Yet the elite Jets can't beat the elite Ravens or the elite Pats. Weird.

    They have to deal with Bal. 1 team in the division has very little to do with earning a bye. You know division opponents only play each other 2 times a season right? The reason Pitt got a bye was because they won 12 games. They won 12 games in a season where the other division opponent (Ravens) won 12 games as well. They split with the Ravens and still won 12 games. The Ravens swept the Steelers in 2011 and Pitt still won 12 games. The Jets split with NE and only won 9 games in 2009. The Jets spit with NE and only won 11 games in 2010. The Jets are not a good enough team to win 12 games in a season. If they were, they would challenge NE for the division title and have a good shot at a bye.
