Not that it’s fun to poke fun at the Jets, but these days, it’s just so darn easy. What went down Sunday was yet another example of bad fortune that this team has experienced during its history.
You know the all-time classic blunders — from the “fake spike” play, to the Bubby Brister shovel pass to the Mark Gastineau game in Cleveland, to name a few — but let’s instead look back at the 10 most embarrassing moments of the last decade:
10. Every Wildcat Play Since Brad Smith’s Departure

Can anyone remember the last time the Jets gained more than half a yard on a wildcat play? Can anyone even remember the last time they didn’t get stopped behind the line of scrimmage?
9. Timeout Wipes Out Tying TD in Green Bay (2014)

Stop me if you’ve heard this before: The Jets take a commanding lead and then watch it vaporize. In a last ditch effort, Geno Smith throws a touchdown pass to tie the game, but it’s negated. Why? Because someone (we now know it was Sheldon Richardson) calls timeout just before the snap. Yikes.
8. 34-0 Loss to 49ers/ Santonio Holmes’ Horrendous Fumble (2012)

Week 4 ends in disaster, as the Jets are absolutely trounced by San Francisco. Contributing to the loss is injured Holmes, who drops the ball while falling down, literally handing the Niners a touchdown.
7. Mark Sanchez’s Final Games As a Jet (2012)

Determined to go out in dramatic fashion, Sanchez goes a combined 30-of-63 with seven turnovers in losses at Tennessee and Buffalo. While he was technically on the roster in 2013, well, you know what happened. Sanchez got injured during the preseason and never threw a football for the Jets again.
6. 45-3 Blowout Loss to New England (2010)

I’m not sure anything needs to be said, other than the final score.
5. Doug Brien Playoff Debacle In Pittsburgh (2004)

Vying for a chance to go to the AFC championship game, Jets’ kicker Doug Brien misses not once, but twice in the last 2:02 of the fourth quarter. Not exactly a clutch performance.
4. Week 16 Loss to Giants (2011)

The Jets lose control of their own playoff destiny (and ultimately do not make it), as Victor Cruz’s 99-yard touchdown reception leads the Giants, of all teams, to a 29-14 win.
3. Season Collapses In Five Weeks (2008)

The Jets’ season was rolling smoothly until Brett Favre’s arm fell off; their downfall from 8-3 to 9-7 and out of playoffs culminating in a loss to, wait for it, Chad Pennington and the Miami Dolphins in Week 17. It was one of the worst reversals of fortune in NFL history.
2. Tebow Mania (2012)

Tim Tebow (Photo by Jeff Zelevansky /Getty Images)

Was there an actual football reason for this signing? Whatever the case, it didn’t help on the football field. It didn’t help … at all.
1. The Butt Fumble (2012)

On Thanksgiving Day, Sanchez collides with Brandon Moore’s behind and loses the football. The Patriots recover and return it for a touchdown. The rest, as they say, is history.

I'm not a Jets fan, but sometimes I tune in. I don't remember Brad Smith.

he came in during Mangini's reign and is known as one of the few "wildcat" specialists.

2006-2009 or thereabouts (maybe 2010).

The thing about late night football is I can only watch about 1 quarter.

Sep 04 GB 16 @ SEA 36

On our Thursday Night Live pregame fantasy show -- you can watch every week right here! -- we had a caller ring in and ask if we thought Richard Sherman would get in "an altercation" on Thursday night. No idea how many points he gets for altercations in his IDP league, but we didn't expect anything NFC Championship Game-level serious out of Sherman.
And we didn't get much of anything, really, except for Sherman -- who wasn't tested a single time in Seattle's 36-16 beatdown win -- going up to Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers after the game.
As The Big Lead notes, Sherman has a question for Rodgers. The Seahawks cornerback has his back turned, but it appears he asked Rodgers a simple question:
"You avoided me didn't you?"
Rodgers had a simpler answer.
"Yup."
At least give Rodgers credit for being honest? The Packers' game plan -- completely different from 2012's approach -- was to throw Jarrett Boykin to the dogs and put him on Sherman's side. The idea is you nullify the defense's best weapon.
The problem is by doing that, you cut the field in half. So in effect the Packers schemed right into the Seahawks' plan.
When the Packers put Jordy Nelson against Sherman in 2012 (primarily, anyway) Nelson was completely washed out. He was productive Thursday, but it's difficult to open up your offense when you limit the quarterback's options to half the field by not throwing at one guy the entire game.

No Rob, its his favorite night cause he gets to go out for beer and pizza afterwards. .
He has stated he is more relaxed with Thurs night games.

The Giants barely have a pulse. We'll see if they resuscitate or finally expire this week against the gulls (and for that matter next week against the cowgirls)
