Tom said he named his son J.E.T.S in hopes it would break the 41 year long Super Bowl drought/ curse Tom had put on the team by being born.
Tom was born in 1970, the Jets last Super Bowl win happened in 1969. Tom's always been a hardcore Jets fan and while growing up in New York Tom was constantly called a curse to the Jets organization by all his friends that were Giants fans. Below is a link to the interview.
Now, here the Jets are, just one win away from a Super Bowl appearance and just two wins away from Tom looking like the God of the Jets for creating a Super Bowl berth and championship; with little Jake looking like a savior, the Jets' Jesus if you will.
