Confident Jets Fan*

For those non-Jet fans out there, the asterisk is because there is no such thing as a confident Jets Fan.

As Jets fans, we know we have to be cautiously optimistic of anything good that may come from Gang Green on Sundays. We know they have let us down time after time in the past, and they will let us down again. And we know that Jets/Giants Super Bowl talk is about as dumb as Donovan McNabb. Well -- maybe not that dumb.

After their 34-13 thumping of the previously undefeated and, in my opinion, overrated Tennessee Titans, the Jets moved into a tie with the Steelers for the second best record in the AFC at 8-3. The future looks bright.

Aside from awful play-calling after the opening drive, a Favre interception, and a Leon Washington fumble, the Jets played like, I can't believe I'm saying this, a true contender.

The remainder of the Jets' schedule is as easy as that one girl from high school (You know the one), and it wouldn't be out of the realm of possibility that they could end up 12-4.

But, any true Jets fan is prepared to finish 8-8. Sadly, it's the unfortunate "True Life: I'm a Jets fan" reality. They should win next week at home against the Broncos, but we'll see what happens.

But yes, if you're wondering, I would consider myself a confident Jets fan*.
