I cashed it in = The Jets beat the Bengals

Some Jets fans are making the football world giggle a little bit. 

Making the playoffs due to being handed their last two games by luck-of-schedule, and then being matched up against another "one and done" team in the Bengals, who are the premier underachievers in the NFL, is NOT reason to thump your chest and predict silly things for the Jets in the playoffs.

Remember a few weeks ago when the jets were an extreme long shot to make the playoffs?

Remember a few weeks ago when the jets looked completely befuddled on offense despite a great running game?

A little luck, some smoke and mirrors, and shazaaaam....the Jets are on fire....the Jets are great.....the Jets can win it all.

Jets fans should count themselves lucky and look to the future which looks good for a long, long, long time.
