The Jets always win the offseason, whether it's because they picked up Brett Favre, drafted a first-round quarterback, gained recognition through the ravings of their colorful coach, or lured HBO's Hard Knocks to their training camp. But once the real games start, they clearly become the second team in New York. Now, after their appearance in the AFC championship game last year, the question George Willis put to Giants running back Brandon Jacobs yesterday was, have the Jets overtaken the Giants as the area's No. 1 team?
Here's Jacobs' answer.
Now I ask you. Let's assume the Jets indeed win themselves a Super Bowl in the next season or two. Can they ever get enough support to be considered the premier franchise in this area?
All opinions welcome.
