New York Jets background
The Jets were originally Queen's team before leaving NYC proper to share a stadium with their crosstown rival the New York Giants. Now, the Jets play in the Sports Complex in East Rutherford, New Jersey. This is a short trip from New York City across the Hudson River.
Most people can't think of the Jets without conjuring images of Broadway Joe Namath, even over 40 years after he retired. The quarterback's swagger has become indelibly associated with the franchise that he led. The Jets have a strong rivalry with the New England Patriots, which only grew more intense after the Patriots induced coach Bill Belichick to resign as coach of the Jets after only two days. Other franchise icons are Curtis Martin, Don Maynard and Joe Klecko.
The New York Jets experience
The Jets share MetLife Stadium with the Giants. The stadium was opened in 2010 and seats 82,500. The team's fans are some of the most loyal in sports, fanatically backing the team even when the results on the field fall short. Jets loyalists are a boisterous bunch, and when famed superfan Fireman Ed is hoisted in the air, the chants of "J-E-T-S JETS, JETS, JETS!" are deafening. The Meadowlands is fast becoming a destination not only for sports. A large-scale indoor entertainment center will also be opening in close proximity to the stadium.
The history of the New York Jets
The Jets were an original member of the American Football League. As an AFL member, the Jets played in Super Bowl III and were a prohibitive underdog against the Baltimore Colts. After Namath famously guaranteed victory, the Jets stunned the Colts to win the franchise's only Super Bowl. The Jets have featured some colorful characters over the years. The "New York Sack Exchange" was led by Mark Gastineau whose dances after every quarterback sack entertained fans. The Jets have also had outsize personalities on the sideline with Bill Parcells and Rex Ryan previously coaching the team. The Jets reached two AFC Championship games under Ryan.
