The Resume

    (1960- )
    Known as the New York Titans (1960-1962)
    One Super Bowl championship (III)
    Five retired numbers: Joe Namath's #12, Don Maynard's #13, Curtis Martin's #28, Joe Klecko's #73 and Dennis Byrd's #90

Why they might be annoying:

    Not only are they a New York team that plays in New Jersey, but they play in a stadium named after the other New York City area NFL team.
    They were the last team that happened to exist when the AFL and NFL merged to win a division title.
    In 1994, they lost to the Miami Dolphins in a game that could have given them a share of the AFC East lead when Dan Marino completed a touchdown pass late in the game after he faked a spike.
    They would go on to lose the rest of their games that year and win only four in the next two years.
    They suffered from injuries that kept them from being contenders (i.e., Vinny Testaverde in 1999, Chad Pennington in 2003).

Why they might not be annoying:

    Prior to Super Bowl III, Joe Namath guaranteed that the team would win the game despite being a heavy underdog.
    They won that game in what was not only one of the greatest upsets of all time, but legitimized the AFL prior to the completion of the AFL-NFL merger.
    In signing Joe Namath for a large amount of money, they started a trend which would be a major factor in merging the AFL and NFL.
    In the 2002 season, they improbably came back from a 2-5 start to win the AFC East.
    Their fans chant 'J-E-T-S 'Jets! Jets! Jets!'
