January 23, 2011 was the last time that New York Jets fans sat around watched their beloved Gang Green in the playoffs. This season the retooled Jets look to make a similar turnaround to the the Cincinnati Bengals Super Bowl run last season. Now the Super Bowl may be a long shot but the playoffs could be more realistic than some fans or ever experts think. These 10 players can get them there.
The New York Jets last won a Super Bowl prior to Apollo 11 astronaut, Neil Armstrong's walk on the moon, nearly 53 years ago. Yet, the NFL franchise still honors players that prospered during the 5 plus decades of Gang Green championship futility. The trio being honored during the 2022 season did their very best to bring the Jets faithful a Lombardi Trophy and came sort of close twice.
Problems for most of us are relative. So, when a former New York Jets quarterback suggests that Tom Brady has a problem, I immediately rule out that it is an issue on the playing field. In the span of TB12's playing career he has played in 9 Super Bowls. In that same span of time, actually in the last 53 years, the Jets have not played in a single Super Bowl. So, logic leads us to the difficulty being off the playing field.
As we reported last week, 4th grader Lazar LaPenna, of Long Beach, New York, suffered a fatal seizure after hitting a baseball and running to first base. There was no injury caused by a baseball. Lazar suffered from epilepsy for several years and was on medication for seizures. LaPenna loved baseball and the Mets. His dad was his coach. The baseball world and others took notice of this awful tragedy and even took to Twitter to recruit everyone to pay tribute to the little boy from Long Island.
