You may scratch your head at the sight of the 11-win 2010 New York Jets being listed. It’s only natural. After all, they shocked the world in stunning both Peyton Manning and Tom Brady in getting to the AFC Championship Game.

Six seasons later, this was the last time the Jets saw the playoffs.

The loss at Pittsburgh was so disappointing in itself for two reasons. One was directly tied to how flat the Jets started that AFC Title Game, and the other is the fan actually believing it was their year.

After the surprising push in Rex’s rookie year, every fan thought the Jets learned how to win that second time around after upsetting the Pats in Foxborough (probably the Jets second best overall victory in franchise history).


As crazy as it now sounds, Mark Sanchez was so hot in the second half of that contest that every Jets fan thought their club was heading to the Super Bowl if the defense could just find a way to get him the ball back.

The 1982 season saw so much excitement, so much promise that his spurned on many hopes for 1983. The name of A.J. Duhe couldn’t escape the minds of Jets fans quick enough.

But alas, it wasn’t meant to be. Intead, a disappointing 7-9 record paved way to the drafting of Ken O’Brien in the offseason.
