The Jets for two straight years have come one game shy of playing on Super Bowl Sunday. They've done this all the while with a quarterback who was a rookie and then a second year player. Imagine if the Jets had a Rivers or a Manning or a Brady? Keep imagining because the Jets are extremely committed to their quarterback Mark Sanchez.
This year the Jets started out 9-2, lost a couple games down the stretch but still found themselves as a 6th seed wildcard in this year's playoffs.
They took down the Colts in an impressive win, they took down the Patriots in an even more impressive win, and then just fell short in Pittsburgh trying to erase a 24 point deficit at one point in the AFC championship.
So what do the Jets need? Well, I'd say all they really need is to be considered a high caliber team that can compete with anybody. I know they believe that, but once they get to a Super Bowl they'll finally prove that.
The defense the Jets have and the supporting cast on offense surrounding Mark Sanchez makes them more than qualified for another chance at a ring in 2011.
