Banner looks good

Recommended Posts

I like this one a lot.  I didn't have a licensed copy of that one though.  So we threw the other one in there to just us started.  This will be tweaked, just needed to get Revis off to Tampa, lol.

 

 

I know how it goes... :)

 

Maybe if you are lucky I'll make you something cool like I did for Crusher, lol

Thanks for the patience everyone, we finally got around to removing the ex-Jets from our banner.  We have a few things planned going-forward but for right now we are going with a retro look.

When we thought of great ex-Jets, we figured Joe Klecko, Don Maynard, Joe Namath and Curtis Martin was a good place to start.  Stay tuned for a few more updates, including a banner with current Jets.  Feel free to let us know what you think, here is a discussion thread from the

Also, thank you to Seth for the graphics help.  You can check Seth out on Twitter, he is a huge Jets fan.

F*ck Curtis. Guy doesn't even like football.

JetNation doesn't have the most traffic. It doesn't have the most naturally gifted posters. It doesn't even have attractive posters. What JetNation has is a bunch of gritty, scrappy overachievers whose stock in trade is a great love of the game, and a willingness to play through concussions. With that said, the guys (along with Namath and Klecko) who belong in the banner are:

1. Wayne-- No explanation necessary.

2. Al Toon-- See above.

3. James Hasty-- played half a season with a broken jaw on a 6-10 team going nowhere.

4. Mangold-- Tried to play on a knee that he couldn't bend on a similarly hopeless team.

5. Victor Green-- Did he suck? Yes. But he played hard and with a chip on his shoulder.

6. Mickey Shuler-- Got absolutely killed every time he caught a pass here. Still balled.

7. Ken O'Brien-- Perhaps no Jets alum embodies the JN poster more than O'Brien: he was once a promising, fair-haired boy who showed flashes of brilliance, but countless Gitmo-style physical beatings in countless horrible losses aged him 20 years in the span of eight. By the time he left the Jets, he was broken-down and miserable, with the hollow eyes of a Hiroshima survivor.

Great, great list.
