Before you completely lose your mind with excitement, I implore you to get a hold of youself.

Yes, the J-E-T-S are alone in first place in the division more than halfway through the season. And not a single soul saw that coming.

I know, the excitement is contagious. His Holiness was slapping butts after the game. Mangini actually cracked a smile during his post-game press conference. TWICE. You've gotten a wave of e-mails and text messages from fellow fired-up fans.

But football, as you know, is a fickle mistress. Things could fall apart at any moment. You've been a Jets fan for a long time.

So before you run out and buy a Dustin Keller jersey, I beg you to sit down and catch your breath. Enjoy it for a little while, then pull yourself together. You're not as young as you once were. You're just asking for a major health ailment. You've always been blessed with low blood pressure, but let's not overdo it. Stop going to the NFL's home page to check the playoff schedule (which, I know you were delighted to discover, does not at all interfere with your January vacation plans).

By the way, enjoy your time in Mississippi this weekend. Let's try to avoid incarceration for trespassing, shall we?
