Not a fair comparison.
Jboss is a J2EE container that features Jetty as the web container.
The real comparison is that of Jetty vs. Tomcat.
Some argue that Jetty is a bit more secure and lighter that Tomcat.
I never argue those points unless I see benchmarks for the same conditions. 
Most people don't have real benchamarks so take that in stride.

JBoss can be configured to work with TomCat.

I agree with you that if you don't need EJB's and the other ilities (ie. 
scalalbility, security, manageability) then I would think again.

I came to a project where they had jBoss & Struts and all they were doing was 
reporting via the web. Way to bring a "sledge hammer" to an ant. I tore that 
out and went straight MVC with nothing but good design patterns, OO 
principles, Oracle, and Tomcat.

that's my spin
