New York Jets Information
The New York Jets are a professional American football team based in the New York City metropolitan area. The team plays its home games in East Rutherford, New Jersey, and is headquartered and trains in Hempstead, New York on Long Island. They currently belong to the Eastern Division of the American Football Conference (AFC) in the National Football League (NFL). Originally called the New York Titans, the team began play in 1960 as a charter member of the American Football League. The club was renamed the "Jets" after Sonny Werblin bought the team in 1963. The Jets then joined the NFL as part of the AFL-NFL Merger. The Jets hold the distinction of being the first AFL team to defeat an NFL club in an AFL-NFL World Championship Game when they defeated the Baltimore Colts in Super Bowl III.

In 1965, the Jets signed University of Alabama quarterback Joe Namath, who chose to sign with the Jets over the St. Louis Cardinals, the team that held his NFL rights. Namath's contract was for a then-record $427,000 annual salary. The confluence of signing Namath, as well as the Jets' moving into brand-new Shea Stadium, the Giants' poor performance since 1964, and the AFL's brand-new deal with NBC, helped to make the Jets the hottest football team in New York and one of the most popular teams nationwide. The Jets drew spectators both at home and on the road and, perhaps as much as any other factor, Namath's undisputed success with the Jets led to the landmark merger of the AFL with the NFL, to finally be consummated in 1970.
The Jets looked to improve on that mark for the 1986 season, with the team winning 9 straight games to start the season at 10–1. Wesley Walker caught 12 touchdowns, with second-year player Al Toon catching 8. The team slid through December, losing five straight to finish 10–6. Pat Ryan was named the starting quarterback for the playoffs, and they defeated the Kansas City Chiefs handily in the first round. However, a late comeback by the Cleveland Browns in their divisional playoff matchup led to a double-overtime winning field goal by Mark Moseley would deny the Jets a berth in the AFC

In 1968, the Jets would reach the pinnacle of their existence and provide the moment that would indicate the AFL's coming of age. Under Namath's guidance, the Jets rose to the top of the AFL and in 1969 represented that league in the Super Bowl. They were pitted against the champions of the NFL, the Baltimore Colts. At the time, the AFL was considered to be inferior to the NFL, and most people considered the Jets to be considerable underdogs. In the week leading up to Super Bowl III, Namath famously "guaranteed" a victory. His audacious remark proved correct, as the Jets created one of the greatest upsets in football history by defeating the Colts 16–7. This victory showed that the AFL was capable of competing with the NFL. The Jets' first game in the NFL was also the first-ever Monday Night Football game, a 31–21 loss to the Cleveland Browns.
The 1968 season also saw the Jets involved in one of the most notorious incidents in television history, an incident that would change the way television networks carried sporting events for decades to come. On November 17, 1968, just before 7pm Eastern time, the Jets scored late to take a 32–29 lead over the Oakland Raiders with 1:05 left. NBC cut to a commercial, and then everywhere but the West Coast showed the movie Heidi, a show which NBC had promoted extensively for the sweeps period. Outraged fans bombarded NBC headquarters in New York with phone calls demanding the game be restored; so many phone calls were made that they eventually knocked out the NBC switchboard. Even though a decision was made to carry the game to conclusion, this decision could not be communicated, thus resulting in the movie starting on schedule.

Pennington was healthy again for the start of the 2004 season, and the Jets started the season 5-0 before losing 2 of their next 3. Despite struggling down the stretch and having Pennington miss three games with an injured rotator cuff, the Jets finished with a 10-6 record and earned a wild-card berth. Herman Edwards' team faced the AFC West champion San Diego Chargers in the opening round, a team that featured Pro Bowlers Drew Brees, LaDainian Tomlinson, and Antonio Gates. The Jets took advantage of San Diego miscues and what some felt was an overly conservative strategy by the Chargers. The Jets prevailed with a Doug Brien field goal in overtime.
Despite this the Jets came through yet again, with an interception by cornerback David Barrett on the next play. Rather than try to drive for a touchdown or otherwise get closer for a game-winning field goal, the Jets seemed content to settle for a 43-yard field goal attempt that would have given the Jets the win—ironically, the same unsuccessful strategy the Chargers had employed the previous week. Brien's kick missed, wide left, forcing the game into overtime. The Jets would lose on a 33-yard field goal by Pittsburgh kicker Jeff Reed, as the Jets fell just short yet again. In the days following the loss, many people and pundits opined that the Jets lost this game by not being aggressive and being overly willing to settle for a field goal, ignoring the fact that Brien had been 10-11 in field goal attempts between 40-49 yards on the season..
Unfortunately Pennington's shoulder was injured much worse than feared, including a complete tear of the rotator cuff. He was placed on the injured list for the remainder of the season. Their backup quarterback Fiedler was injured seven plays after Pennington's season-ending injury, causing previous third-string quarterback Brooks Bollinger to take the role as the team's starter and Vinny Testaverde was brought back out of retirement as Bollinger's backup. After a poor showing by the Jets' offense in a loss and being called on to start Week 5 against Tampa Bay after Brooks Bollinger proved ineffective, Testaverde's steady hand led the offense, and Curtis Martin scored two touchdowns, giving the Jets just enough to earn a 14–12 victory over the previously undefeated Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Optimism was high for the 1994 season when the Jets started the season 6–5 and played Miami on November 27. The Jets won a number of dramatic games, including a dramatic home overtime win against the Denver Broncos. However, the season was defined by a game against the Miami Dolphins, and specifically a play from Dolphins quarterback Dan Marino. After the Jets had dominated the Dolphins for much of the afternoon, Marino fooled the Jet defender Aaron Glenn into thinking that he would spike the ball to stop the clock, then threw the winning touchdown to Mark Ingram with less than a minute left for an improbable victory. The play came to be known as "The Fake Spike," and ultimately would prove an unrecoverable blow to the Jets' momentum. The Jets would lose their last four games, finishing the season 6–10, last place in the AFC East. Carroll was fired after only one season and replaced by former Philadelphia Eagles coach Rich Kotite.
The draft picks the Jets received set the stage for a quick turnaround in the late 1990s, most notably Keyshawn Johnson, a wide receiver from USC who was picked #1 overall. The pick of Johnson not only gave the Jets a skill position player they desperately needed, but an on-field identity and swagger the team had lacked since the days of Joe Namath. The results were immediate. Neil O'Donnell, formerly of the Pittsburgh Steelers, threw for 17 touchdowns in his only full year as the Jets' starting quarterback, and Adrian Murrell ran for 1,000 yards. The Jets finished 9–7. Although they missed the playoffs, they enjoyed an eight game turnaround and quickly won back the respect of the league and their fans.
Looking to build on his 1997 success, Parcells signed Patriots running back Curtis Martin and Baltimore Ravens quarterback Vinny Testaverde as free agents in time for the 1998 season, which turned out to be the most successful for the team since the 1960s. At Parcells' urging, the Jets also reverted to their classic logo and uniform style, although with a darker shade of green. Parcells said that when he was a young coach, he would see the successful late-60's Jets practice in those uniforms, and Parcells associated that uniform and logo with those of a successful team.

The Jets did not live up to expectations after the AFL and NFL merged in 1970. In their first season after the merger, Joe Namath broke his wrist in October and was unable to play for the rest of the season, with the Jets finishing 4–10. Another injury to Namath before the 1971 season submarined the Jets that year as well, with Bob Davis and Al Woodall leading the team to a 6–8 record. Namath was back for the 1972 season, leading the team to a respectable 7–7. After another disappointing season in 1973, coach Weeb Ewbank retired. After Ewbank's departure, Charley Winner coached the Jets in 1974, and the Jets had a late surge to finish the season 7–7. In 1975, the Jets would finish only 3–11, and Winner was replaced by Lou Holtz, who had been head coach at North Carolina State University. Unfortunately for Holtz, his coaching style was not ideally suited for the NFL. He only won 3 of 13 games as Jets coach before leaving with one game left in the season to resume his college coaching career at the University of Arkansas.
Namath's career mirrored the Jets after the AFL-NFL merger became final in 1970. He missed much of the 1970, 1971, and 1973 seasons due to injuries, most notably to his ravaged knees, which robbed him of his mobility and much of his effectiveness. He would not throw more touchdowns than interceptions in a season after the merger, and in fact only had two post-merger seasons (1972 and 1974) where his performance could have been classified as a reasonably successful year. (The Jets also had relative success in those years as well, finishing 7–7 both years.) After a terrible 1976 season in which Namath only threw 4 touchdown passes against 16 interceptions in 11 games, Namath was traded by the Jets to the Los Angeles Rams. He would play only four games for the Rams before announcing his retirement during the season, at the relatively young age of 34. Although Namath would make the Hall of Fame, it was widely acknowledged that he made it on his performance through the 1969 season, for his role in leading the Jets to a victory in Super Bowl III, and for his being a transcendent icon, the likes of which pro football had not seen.

In 1987, the Jets again stumbled through December, but this time they missed the playoffs with a 6–9 record. The mercurial Gastineau shocked the team by retiring midway through the 1988 season, one in which the Jets finished 8–7–1, short of a playoff spot in the competitive AFC wild-card race. A highlight of their 1988 season was their defeat of the New York Giants in the final game of the season, thus denying the Giants a playoff berth. The team went into a tailspin in 1989, finishing 4–12 and resulting in the firing of coach Joe Walton. Walton had been unpopular for many years and had to endure frequent chants of "Joe Must Go" during home games, especially during the final 1989.
After the 1989 season, the Jets hired Dick Steinberg from the New England Patriots to be the franchise's General Manager. As a Patriots executive, Steinberg had helped led the Patriots to their first Super Bowl appearance in 1985. Prior to Steinberg's arrival, the Jets did not have an individual primarily and directly responsible for the on-field product. One of Steinberg's first moves was to hire Bruce Coslet, offensive coordinator of the Cincinnati Bengals as head coach. Coslet's offensive schemes had helped lead the Bengals to the 1988 Super Bowl where they very nearly defeated the San Francisco 49ers. Steinberg and Coslet let most of the key players from the 1980s go and built from scratch. Ken O'Brien was on the downside of his career, and the team finished 6–10. In 1991, with Brad Baxter having a career-high 11 touchdown receptions, the Jets improved to 8–8, winning the season finale against the Miami Dolphins on the final weekend of the season. Despite their modest regular season record, the Jets played a close game against the Houston Oilers in their opening-round playoff game, finally losing 17–10.

Joe Walton was the new coach for the 1983 season, and he led the team to a 7–9 season. After the 1983 season, the Jets lease with the City of New York for the use of Shea Stadium had expired, and the Jets would need to cut a new deal. However, the renewal deal offered by the City of New York was highly unfavorable to the Jets, including terms such as that the Jets could not play a home game at Shea Stadium until the Mets' season was over, which would have forced the Jets to play at least the first month of the regular season on the road. Essentially evicted from Shea, in 1983 the Jets reached an agreement with the New Jersey Sports and Exhibition Authority to play their home games at Giants Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey beginning in 1984.
Despite admittedly being the second tenant at the Meadowlands, the stadium was considered one of the best in the NFL and allowed the Jets to realize revenue streams and flexibility they would not have realized if they had remained at Shea Stadium. It also enabled the Jets to sell over 15,000 more tickets to each game and to better leverage the New York area fan base and corporate support. For their part, the Giants welcomed the Jets, as the Jets presence at the Meadowlands would eventually enable both teams to gain improvements and upgrades to the facility that the Giants may not have been able to secure by themselves.

Fans' ire was further fueled when they discovered that NBC's cutting away from the game denied them from seeing live a dramatic finish. On the Raiders' second play from scrimmage on the next drive, Daryle Lamonica threw a 46-yard touchdown pass to Charlie Smith, giving the Raiders a 36–32 lead. On the ensuing kickoff, Earl Christy of the Jets fumbled at the 10 yard line, which the Raiders' Preston Ridlehuber converted into another touchdown, ultimately giving the Raiders a 43–32 victory. Much of the country learned of this final outcome only via a bottom-of-screen crawl line shown during the movie. This incident, dubbed the Heidi Game, resulted in most television networks and sports leagues amending their television policies to ensure that games in progress would be broadcast to their conclusion, no matter what, even if it meant delaying or canceling the rest of the network's lineup, and even if the game's outcome seemed assured.
Despite the move to Giants Stadium, the Jets organization made the decision to not change the team name to reflect the new location of its home stadium. This mirrored the decision made by the Giants in 1976 when they moved, and originated from the fact that, although the stadium was in New Jersey, the team continued to represent all of Metropolitan New York and the Tri-State area. Furthermore, despite being in a different state, the Jets' new home was closer to Times Square and midtown Manhattan than Shea Stadium was, as the crow flies—although considerably farther from the team's Long Island offices and training facilities than Shea
