About The New York Jets
Founded in 1960, the New York Jets are a professional American football team based in the New York City metropolitan area. They are at present members of the Eastern Division of the American Football Conference (AFC) in the National Football League (NFL). The Jets play their home games at Giants Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey.
However, as the Jets play in a venue named for the New York Giants, another NFL team that plays there, the New York Giants, the Jets officially refer to the site as simply "The Meadowlands." This name is used on all official NFL and team game notes as far as Jets' home games are concerned. The Jets have their headquarters and training place in Hempstead, New York on Long Island. They have plans for a new training facility and corporate headquarters in Florham Park, New Jersey. Originally named the New York Titans, the team got its new name, the Jets when Sonny Werblin purchased the club in 1963.
The Jets then joined the NFL as part of the AFL-NFL Merger. The Jets wear jerseys of green and white. The team was the first AFL team to defeat an NFL club in an AFL-NFL World Championship Game when they shocked favorites Baltimore Colts 16-7 in Super Bowl III in 1968. This triumphant squad was led by head coach Weeb Ewbank, wide receiver Don Maynard, and charismatic quarterback Joe Namath.
Ewbank, who coached the Baltimore Colts to an NFL Championship in 1959, became the only head coach to win championships in both leagues, and Namath was adjudged the AFL most valuable player (MVP).
The Jets joined the NFL in 1970 and reached the playoffs on four occasions between 1981 and 1986. Freeman McNeil, Richard Todd, Mark Gastineau, and Joe Klecko were the stars of the team. During this period, the Jets’ intimidating defensive line became famous as the New York Sack Exchange because New York City housed the New York Stock Exchange.
After a sporadic performance during the late 1980s and early 1990s, the Jets traded four draft picks at the end of the 1996 season to the New England Patriots to gain the right to hire Coach Bill Parcells. Parcells was by then a famous name for steering both the New York Giants and the Patriots to Super Bowl appearances.
Under Parcells’s coaching, the Jets finished the 1997 season with a 9-7 win-loss record and barely missed the playoffs. In 1998 they posted a 12-4 win-loss record in the regular season and bagged the Eastern Division helped by players like Vinny Testaverde, Curtis Martin, and Keyshawn Johnson. During the playoffs they defeated the Jacksonville Jaguars before going down to the Denver Broncos in the AFC Championship Game.
