 OT: Jets Selling AFC Champs Merchandise
Quote:
Apparently, some folks in the Jets organization are taking Rex Ryan's Super Bowl calendar a bit too literally.

They're already selling gear indicating that the Jets have won the AFC title. (Via Deadspin.)

They're really a confident bunch, aren't they?

As it turns out, the Jets aren't the only AFC finalist taking advance orders on gear that boasts to the world the achievement of a goal that the team has yet to achieve.

The Colts are doing it, too.

I'd buy a Colts championship before I'd think about the Jets winning.

Quote:
Dungy's warning to Jets: Manning rules in rematches

Don't book those Super Bowl flights to Miami yet, Jets fans.

Former Indianapolis coach Tony Dungy remembers the Broncos taking advantage of his Colts reserves late in 2003 and '04 just to get pummeled when the teams met again in the playoffs a couple of weeks later.

"You look at Peyton Manning's history when he's played teams the second time around and we've had this experience a couple of times before in '03 and '04," said Dungy, now an analyst for NBC's 'Football Night in America.'

"We played Denver in games that didn't mean a whole lot to us, but Denver had to win them to get in. Peyton saw the defense, and even when it was Jim Sorgi [Manning's backup] playing, he saw how they were going to play us. Then the second time around he generally knows what he wants to do and is able to execute some things, learn from that first time and they'll have a pretty good game plan and I think they'll score some points."

Denver won those regular-season meetings 31-17 and 33-14, but got manhandled in the rematches 41-10 and 49-24 with Manning and the starters playing the full game. The Jets used a similar script to get into the playoffs -- scoring the final 19 points against Indianapolis' backups in Week 16 to pull out a 29-15 win and begin their run of four straight wins that took them to Sunday's AFC Championship. But a rematch in Indianapolis is where coach Rex Ryan's dream season ends, according to Dungy.

I hope that whomever bought them get real good use out of them as dish rags. It was their downfall. It seemed like whenever Rex Ryan talked trash his team lost, but when he said that his team didn't have a chance they won. Tip for Rex Ryan. Don't sell Championship gear 3 days before the game.

Actually those shirts are always pre printed. All 4 teams left in the playoffs do it but usually they do not start selling them until after the games. The losing teams shirts usually goes back to the printers. If you get your hands on what is perceived to be a mistake shirt it might be worth a little something in the future.

I always heard that the pre-printed shirts for the losing teams always get shipped to a 3rd world country.

At least we don't have to let the Jets use our locker room for the Super Bowl. As for the shirts, ritzy toilet paper!

That might be true but how it goes with the Printer is something like this. Usually the cost of the stock & supplies (shirts , Ink) are paid for while the labor might not be,
Either way I agree it would be nice to see the shirts go where they are truly needed.

I don't know who foots the bill for the shirts, I'd assume it's the NFL. Losers shirts do get shipped to a country in need. As put by the New York Times, "In some parts of the world, the Seattle Seahawks are the reigning Super Bowl champions, the Buffalo Bills are the last great football dynasty and Tom Brady is some frustrated quarterback from New England who can never win it all"

okay i'll give 'em props too... just kidding. it's pretty pathetic when your biggest claim to fame in the modern football era is backing into the playoffs and capitalizing on the brain farts of others.

They went far in the playoffs because of the type of team they have. Old school big d and big run, but the big play was missing to get all the way in.
