our uniforms are old dreary and outdated and change is good for the fans and for the players as well and  when you look good you feel good about yourself .. ask a player if  the opponent wearing black shoes looks less intimidating than in white shoes and your see the answer is YES 99% of the time is and the same can be said for less plodding colors and dull uniforms like the N.Y Jets for ex. this has nothing to do with our players not being explosive or whatever save that for another discussion and do research as i did and see what the effects of new uniforms or color schemes has on a opposing teams because it does so yea NEW UNIS PLEASE..

It may be our players, not the uniforms, that are the reason the Jets aren't explosive

Been saying they should keep Dunbar for weeks now. Glad The Jets Press is on board. As far as I'm concerned, MM and Dunbar are the only two "must haves." The others could be replaced.

FWIW - Namath did pick all four favorites (CHALK!), but this was the first time all four favorites won the divisional playoff games since 2005.

"Celebrating" 45 years...... 

Jan. 12th, 1969 is my avatar because I was at the game that day. Who would have thought that I was a 21 year old  kid just graduating from the "U" (before it was called the U;

now approaching retirement...still waiting for that 2nd championship. I'll repeat what I've said for 45 years...I know next year will be our year. Go Jets!


(FYI...tickets were $12. bucks...but I got mine from a scalper outside the Orange Bowl for $18., a lot of money for a kid in college in 1969).

@nynyParcells re-instituted the original uniform & helmet designs and the green & white have been there pre-SB. But trust me, it's not the uniforms. :)

@a57se So then positional needs: 1 QB, 2 TE, 2 WR, 1 OT (Kinda), 1 OG, 1 DL, 2 ILB, 1-2 OLB, 2-3 CB, 1 K, and 1 P

= 15 Players with 12 draft picks and $35m (And not counting RB, because I don't think we need one). Obviously, with some basic re-signings these numbers go down quite a bit.


Howard, Douz, Walls, Lankster, and Folk are obvious re-signs to me. I'd also be on board with Colon and Cumberland coming back. I think that can happen for roughly $13m. That leaves 8 openings with 12 draft picks and $22m to spend.

@a57se@1969JAN12thAnd I was at SAC HQ in Omaha before going to Okinawa. Never thought it would take so long. Should've happened many times since: starting with the Mud Bowl fiasco.

Non senile lol I did not picture you being that old jaygo.

I was umm -17 but my dad was 15.

@a57se Correct. We have too many picks. No way 12 guys make the roster. I'd rather have another 2nd round WR (Whether that's Matthews, Cooks, etc).


Offensive Weapon. Slot Receiver/Gadget Back/Kick Returner.


And Depth charts are for training camp.

@a57se  Correct on all of them, except I'd have Cumby at #2 TE. 


Then a draft of...


1. Jace Amaro (TE, Texas Tech)

2. Kyle Van Noy (OLB, BYU)

2. Jordan Matthews (WR, Vanderbilt) (Acquired via trade)

3. Jared Abbrederis (WR, Wisconsin)

3. Trade

4. David Fales (QB, San Jose State)

4. Trade

5. Trade

5. Dri Archer (OW, Kent State)

6. Trade

7. Trade

7. Jonathan Brown (LB, Illinois)

7. Pat O'Donnell (P, Miami)


Leaves us with openings at 1 ILB, 1 CB, and maybe one OLB. 

Resign Wilkerson for $10m per, sign Verner at $8m per, and sign a backup ILB at 1/1.5.


Even leaves us a margin to sign Asamoah instead of Colon if the numbers work out.

@a57se@joemustgo@frustjetfn@1969JAN12thWritten by Eric Schlosser and published last year. It's about the SAC and the history of the US nuclear arsenal. Fascinating and scary. It's a tribute to all you guys who handled these weapons (and a minor miracle) there has never been an accidental detonation.
