Happy Birthday, New York Jets!

By all accounts the Jets are entering their 53rd year of existence however, on the chance that you’re not counting the first three years of their history as the struggling and lowly Titans of New York, then today is the day to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the New York Jets!

On this day, the Titans were sold to the Sonny Werblin syndicate that included Townsend Martin, Donald Lillis, Philip Iselin and future full time owner Leon Hess. Werblin re-named the team the Jets who went on to win Super Bowl III five years later.
