What is the No. 1 hit in New York Jets history? Plus are the green and white going to front-load the Kirk Cousins deal?
Things have been rough for New York Jets fans over the years. The green and white haven’t been to the postseason since 2010.
But the offseason is about hope, everyone is undefeated and trying to put themselves in the best position to win next season. So let’s take a stroll down memory lane in a good way, back to the 2010 divisional round when the Jets traveled to play the New England Patriots.

For me personally, this is the greatest memory of my fanhood. This was the front cover of Sports Illustrated when Calvin Pace came around the bend and strip-sacked Brady. It was the epitome of what the Jets accomplished that day. They got in Brady’s grill.
This was one of the biggest upsets in playoff history. The Jets lost in that same venue just a few weeks earlier 45-3 and were embarrassed on national television. Calvin Pace will always hold a special place in Jets fans hearts around the globe.
While speaking of a special place in our hearts, that’s what Kirk Cousins can hold for the Jets. Although it won’t be free, it’ll come at a price. What is that price?
Well that’s something we’ve been discussing in the media, we’ve heard a little bit of everything, but this is the first we’ve heard about actual contract structure thanks to Brian Costello of the New York Post:
“One league source speculated the Jets could front-load the contract and offer Cousins $60 million guaranteed in the first year of the contract. That would still leave them with about $30 million in cap space this year and then allow them to build around Cousins with lower cap figures in the remaining years of the contract.”
