New York Jets Team History


New York Jets history in the National Football League ( NFL ) supplied by Sports Pool .com. Sports Pool .com the best NFL football office pools on the net.

The New York Titans became charter members of the AFL in 1960, naming former quarterback great Sammy Baugh as their first head coach. The team enjoyed modest success during its first eight seasons, finishing second in the Eastern Division three times. In 1963 Weeb Ewbank was named head coach, and the team’s name was changed to the Jets because the team’s home, Shea Stadium, is located between New York’s John F. Kennedy International and La Guardia Airports. The Jets produced back-to-back rookies of the year in 1964 and 1965—running back Matt Snell and Joe Namath. In 1967 Namath became the first professional quarterback to throw for more than 4,000 yards in one season. Don Maynard led the league in.

New York Jets Chronological History



1965 Joe Namath was named the AFL's Rookie of the Year. Namath completed 164-340-2,220 yards with 18 TD and 15 INT.

1967 Joe Namath passes for 343 yards to finish season with 4,007 yards, the only pro to go over the 4,000-yard mark in a 14-game season (Dec. 24).

1969 Jets become the first AFL team to win the Super Bowl, pounding out a 16-7 victory over the Baltimore

1970 Jets open up the 1970 season against new AFC rival Cleveland, losing 31-21 in Monday night TV inaugural (Sept. 21).

1976 Jets open up the 1970 season against new AFC rival Cleveland, losing 31-21 in Monday night TV inaugural (Sept. 21).

1978 For the first time since 1963, the Jets changed their uniform design. The team also adopted a new logo and changed the helmet to green. (Feb.27)

1983 Citing Shea Stadium as "rundown, neglected and the NFL's poorest facility for athletes and spectators alike," the Jets announced their plans to move to the Meadowlands for the 1984 season.

1993 The members of the Jets Super Bowl III championship team were reunited at the Jets-Bengals game to celebrate the 25th anniversary season of that historic victory. After a full weekend of activities, they were honored at halftime and then watched the Jets come away with a 17-12 victory.

1998 The Jets look to go back to the future with their "new" logo. In actuality, the Jets returned to their original uniform and logo first worn at the club's inception in 1963 and worn by the team when Joe Namath "guaranteed" their 16-7 victory over the Baltimore Colts in Super Bowl III on January 12, 1969. (Feb. 3).

2000 The Jets staged their fourth comeback victory of the season and the most incredible in the franchiseÕs 41 seasons as they rallied from a 30-7 fourth quarter deficit to score a 40-37 OT victory over the Miami Dolphins on Monday Night Football at the Meadowlands. The Jets scored a club-record 30 points in the fourth quarter en route to the biggest comeback in team history and only a point shy of NFL mark held by Oakland (twice) and Atlanta. (Oct. 23)

2001 The Jets paid tribute to the victims and heroes of the World Trade Center attacks in a stirring pre-game ceremony. Herman Edwards presented the game ball that the Jets players had to awarded him after his first win as head coach to New York City Mayor Rudolph Giuliani in the pre-game tribute, televised nationally on ABC's Monday Night Football. The Jets fell to the 49ers, 19-17 (Oct. 1).
