My Five Biggest New York Jets’ Disappointments: November 17, 1994 vs. Miami Dolphins

Good afternoon. Today we continue our trip down memory lane, looking at my five biggest disappointments during my time of watching the New York Jets. Yesterday, we looked at the final game from the 1997 season.

Now, number four:

NOVEMBER 17, 1994: NEW YORK JETS VS. MIAMI DOLPHINS

I think even the younger generation of Jets’ fans know all about this one.

The Jets were led by a young Pete Carroll, promoted to head coach for the 1994 season, following the firing of previous head coach Bruce Coslet. Miami came into New Jersey, and the winner of this one was set to take over the AFC East.

The Jets were leading late, looking to run their record to 7-5. But then, Dan Marino took over for that now infamous drive. He signals that he is going to spike the football, he doesn’t, and the Jets’ defense stops paying attention. Marino throws a touchdown pass, the Dolphins win, and the Jets finish the season 6-10. Pete Carroll is out after one season, and we know who shows up after that.

If only the Jets were paying attention, who knows? The Jets might have actually won the football game, and things could have been a lot different.
