You're Probably a Jets Fan

Elsa

What it means to root for the infuriating, nauseating, you can't make this stuff up New York Jets.

Today I'd like to take a look at some of the can't miss signs that somebody might be a Jets fan. Come, take a stroll with me down A Nightmare on Elm Street Memory Lane and see how many great Jets memories you share.

So, let's start from the very beginning, a very good place to start....

If your team drafted 10 RBs in its inaugural draft, you're probably a Jets fan.

If your team drafted its only HOF QB in the first round, then followed that up with QBs in the 2nd, 3rd and 7th rounds of the same draft, you're probably a Jets fan.

If your team thought that its only HOF QB was an Alabama product, so it made sense his successor had to also be from Alabama, you're probably a Jets fan.

If your team thought the best way to deal with its HOF RB was to get rid of him immediately following his finest year in Green and White, in the prime of his career, with 10 good years still ahead of him, you're probably a Jets fan.

If your team's greatest ever pass rusher quit football to be with his girlfriend because she had cancer, then it turns out she never actually had cancer at all, you're probably a Jets fan.

If your team drafted an Olympic sprinter to play WR, then was shocked to learn his catching skills were on the Lam, you're probably a Jets fan.

If your team drafted a borderline HOF talent who led the league in rushing, then slowly phased him out in favor of a mediocre Johny Hector, only 2 years younger, you're probably a Jets fan.

If your team is the only known team in NFL history to lose a game on a fake spike, you're probably a Jets fan.

If your team thought Roger Vick, Alex Gordon and Onzy Elam sounded like a dynamite 1, 2 and 3 selection in the draft and the foundation for a dominant future, you're probably a Jets fan.

If your team had a HOF head coach for approximately 5 minutes, only to have him resign as HC of the NYJ on a paper napkin, you're probably a Jets fan.

If that same HC went on to lead your archrivals to 3 SB championships and a decade of AFC East dominance, you're probably a Jets fan.

If your team's 1-5 picks in the draft, setting you up for dominance throughout the '90s, were Blair Thomas, Reggie Rembert, Tony Stargell, Troy Taylor. and Tony Savage, you're probably a Jets fan.

If your team drafted 2 All Pro pass rushers within 5 years between 1995 and 2000, yet chose to trade both of them away by the time they were 27 and have never had a decent pass rusher since, you're probably a Jets fan.

If your team traded your entire draft for a QB who can't throw a 5 yd pass and a RB who can't run the ball, you're probably a Jets fan.

If your team hired a Winner for a head coach who was in fact a big loser, you're probably a Jets fan.

And finally, if your team has a QB who mistakes his lineman's butt for a wormhole leading directly to the endzone, you're probably a Jets fan.

If you're a member of GGN and you're reading this, you're probably a Jets fan. And at times you have to ask yourself simply, why?
