Sabres and Jets bringing up the rear. Only double digit teams left.


boricimo t1_jeavief wrote

Actually is was Sanchez bringing up the rear for the Jets.

Coincidentally the last Jets QB in the playoffs lol

Dude this brings back memories. Sanchez was so bad I couldn’t believe that was their QB

Worst thanksgiving ever


boricimo t1_jed3guk wrote

Worse than for Lions fans each year?


MichaelHoncho52 t1_jedctvf wrote

I haven’t seen a lions highlight be the first Not Top Ten highlight for 52 weeks in a row, it was the first time they stopped it

Edit: forgot about the thanksgiving we found out that Avenatti ripped off my uncle for $20k, think that was 2016 but the sting of the butt fumble still burns deeper


boricimo t1_jedfd3p wrote

That is true. Sounds like your thanksgiving starts with lots of shots


MichaelHoncho52 t1_jedh07i wrote

Shit it’s NJ stuff - worst ones where when my relative wasn’t there due to a pay to play thing with a bunch of the Dems in NJ - think they ended up doing about 1 mil into campaign donations. Everyone on their side was implicated but I think most of the guys receiving (politicians) still run the state.

I’m honestly surprised I didn’t get downvoted for that previous comment. Found this on the news tab and think anytime you bring up something Woodie Johnson or Avenatti based you just get buried on here.

Just need to invent a Time Machine and go back and attach Sanchez’s arm to Penningtons body and we might have a shot at the Super Bowl.


boricimo t1_jedf0nu wrote

Why not attach Brett’s arm to Ryan’s body?

Sabres with an outside chance of ending their drought in the next few weeks….

If sabres miss the playoffs this year they will be tied with the jets


BluffMysteryMeat t1_jeg85r5 wrote

The Patriots, I mean the Bruins are going to stomp everybody in the playoffs this year, so what's the point?


Augen76 t1_jeb8qfj wrote

Each league

NFL - 12 years (New York Jets)
MLS - 5 years (Houston & Chicago)
NHL - 12 years (Buffalo)
MLB - 8 years (Detroit & Los Angeles Angels)
NBA - 6 years (Charlotte)
Once you get to a decade you're in select company in US/Canada sport landscape.

How does a team with two of the best baseball players in MLB not get to the playoffs?! Ohtani and Trout? (Clueless Brit here).


madmoneymcgee t1_jebga1u wrote

Everyone else on the team is someone paying off a debt they incurred while at Disneyland.

I grew up an angels fan, how much time do you have

Edit: definitely meant to reply to the other guy but y’all get the point


False-theblackbear t1_jebl2zq wrote

The Angels have sacrificed building a complete team for signing aging players (namely hitters) for too much money, with Ohtani as the exception. They got lucky with Trout, who they drafted, but otherwise they also draft horribly. Additionally, they have consistently had a bottom 5 pitching staff in the league (and yes, even with Ohtani at full strength).

Every year there is some glimmer of hope they will be somewhere between ok and good with their new crop of signings, but each year they prove they are downright bad at winning baseball games. Its very sad to see as a fan.

Have your dad tell you he'll come get you when they win the pennant, and then make a wish.

The batting order is 9 players long. 2/9 only gets you so far when everyone else sucks.

Uh, ohtani bats for himself. Not only does he play the field 4/5 games, but you don't have to dh for the pitcher. You can dh for anyone else


ceviche-hot-pockets t1_jebpbg9 wrote

Their owner is a pompous cheapskate asshole who pays for big-name flashy signings instead of developing a healthy organization. They always have talent, but never a larger plan.


stanley604 t1_jec5g60 wrote

Fate is too embarrassed to let a team named "The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim" get to the playoffs.


tommypopz t1_jedw6p4 wrote

Sadly, their Spanish twitter account calls themselves “Los Angels.” Missed opportunity for “Los Angeles de Los Angeles”


HighKing_of_Festivus t1_jechbg6 wrote

They aren't good at developing talent and Moreno is one of those meddling owners who loves spending but only on the shiniest toys on the market instead of what actually makes sense for the team. Leads to a listless team with consistently poor results


MaximumZer0 t1_jedcde6 wrote

What it breaks down into is this: One player cannot dominate a game of baseball like they can in soccer or basketball. The greatest hitter only hits once every nine batters. The best defensive wizards can only field the balls hit to them. The highest caliber starting pitcher will (usually) only pitch once every 5 games, and usually not a full game. The best relievers usually only work 1 inning (3 outs) at a time.

No matter how good Ohtani and Trout are, they can only do so much to influence any given game.


willghammer t1_jeeni55 wrote

Hornets fan here. We were in the play in! That counts….right? Go ahead and put 7 years, we’ve lost 51 games.


nascarfan624 t1_jea9noh wrote

Tied with the Buffalo Sabres


lesjag23 t1_jecgid3 wrote

And for further humiliation, the Bills previous drought was 17 years - which only ended a few years ago. 12 years is nothin.

As a hockey fan, this headline was very confusing.


SpartanNige329 t1_jeba7a4 wrote

Same. I was just thinking that this couldn’t be true. Maybe Vezina calibre goalie, solid D core, great top 6. How would they be on a playoff drought? Especially since I then remembered them sweeping the Oilers in 2021


GreatLakes2GoldenG8 t1_jeb3fpu wrote

If only a drama-filled 38yo QB could magically change that….


Mikniks t1_jecaw3y wrote

You might be right, I think Kevin Kolb can finally get us over the hump

What are you talking about? Brett Favre took them to the playoffs just a few years a...oh no I'm old.

I had the exact same thought, I can't believe it's seriously been 12 years

There's a storyline on Curb Your Enthusiasm where somebody from the country club kills himself because of the Jets.

Another ridiculous stat, I believe the last time the Jets had a QB throw for over 3000 yards in a season was Joe Namath in the late 60’s!

triggerpuller666 t1_jecwhif wrote

I'll take 12 years. It's a long time but it speaks to how much parity has come to all four 'big' sports in America. If you really want to suffer, do the KC Royals from 1986-2013.

Yeah as a Jets fan, the Lions and Browns are right down there with us as perennial shitty teams. The Browns had a good year recently but overall they're shit.

The Bengals used to be down there too but these last few years have elevated them out of the bottom tier.

He hasn’t missed a game due to covid or much injury for that matter, I would say we would require a Mono shot instead due to our quarterback missing a month plus a couple years ago. People get covid now and miss 2 days.

Aww, poor NY team can’t buy their way into a pro sports playoff every year due to a salary cap? How will they ever be good on an equal playing field?? I feel so bad for them.


MaimedJester t1_jecmzph wrote

I mean they're in the same division as the Patriots... I wouldn't call the Jets the Yankees of the NFL, they don't even have their own stadium they just play when the Giants are on away games.


Taudruw t1_jecnu96 wrote

My point is that they aren’t allowed to be the Mets/Yankees of the NFL because the NFL has a spending limit.


MichaelHoncho52 t1_jed2yla wrote

Only team that has dominated in the NFL is the Patriots - and I don’t see too many players outside of the early teams saying they enjoyed their time there. Boston sports has been 10x more prolific with salaried teams.

Also your argument is off - Mets last won 35+ years ago and the Giants, with a cap, have won 2 super bowls in the past 20. Bills have been good in NY with a cap.


ascagnel____ t1_jecob66 wrote

The Jets are the Devils/Islanders/Nets of the NFL — clearly less popular than a more established team (Rangers/Knicks).
