  1. As for the announcers using football terminology, Al DeRogatis was one of the best TV color men ever, loved watching him as a kid. He was ahead of his time, and really brought football lingo and strategy to the home viewers. As for the Jets OL play, one of the keys to game was how Dave Herman neutralized Bubba Smith. Other than the sack he had on Namath, you didn't hear much at all from him.
  2. Best game ever live: 1968 AFL Championship game. 6 years old, I thought we'd be in every championship game. Honorable mentions: November of 1971 vs. 49ers. Namath's return to the field after hurting his knee in a pre-season game against the Lions. Jets went down big when Namath came into the game I think around the 2nd quarter. Jets were down big, but Namath threw 3 TD passes to bring them back down 3, 24-21. End of the game saw Namath throw an INT to end the Jets hopes for the comeback. Other than being there for Joe's comeback, what made this game so memorable was the crowd. My parents had season tix section 10 midway in the upper deck, first time I ever felt the stadium physically moving and shaking. I also remember a bunch of 49ers coming up to Joe after the game to shake his hand. Best Jets loss I ever saw. Last game of the 1981 season vs. the Packers. Other than the '68 AFL Championship game and the '85 game vs. the Bears at the Meadowlands, the coldest game I have ever been to. By the end of the 3rd quarter, couldn't feel my feet. Didn't care though, as the Jets mauled the Packers to clinch a playoff spot for the first time since the '69 season. And the one that many I have also cited, the 51-45 win vs. the Dolphins.
  3. Goodcall, thanksfor the clarification. The move is a no-brainer, best case scenario: we get a solid OL, and we lose our shot at drafting the next Scotty McNight (although with Joe D in charge of the War Room, there ain't a shot in hell of the happening).
  4. JD made the right move here. No way do you give up that high a waiver slot before teams begin to really start cutting players. As has already been stated, giving up a 7th rounder for a guy who, at worst, will provide OL depth, and at best, can beat out Winters.
  5. If Khalil passes his physical today, his coming on board reminds me of when Alan Faneca signed with the Jets. 32 years old at the time, while Faneca wasn't as dominant as he was with the Steelers, he was good enough to bring great value to the team. Maybe Faneca's biggest contribution was playing between D'Brick and Mangold, as he was a great veteran presence for those two guys in particular, and that offense in general. I can definitely see Khalil bringing that same type of impact and influence to this Jets squad.
  6. The '68 offense is #1 all-time. Two HOFers in Namath and Maynard, with what should be a third in Winston Hill. Terrific balance with the WRs consisting of Maynard, Sauer, and Bake Turner and the RBs of Snell, Boozer, and Bill Mathis. Add in a tremendous OL that was made better with the acquisition of Bob Talamini at OG, that Jets offense had it all. For me, the most clutch drive for a NYJ offense in their history was the AFL championship game that year. Down 23-20 with under 8 minutes left in the game, and in conditions that were brutal; in 3 passes, Namath drive them down for what eventually became the winning TD pass to Maynard. The second pass in that drive is still one of the most amazing throws I've seen, 50+ yards into a 25-30 MPH wind, and dropping a dime to Maynard. As talented as the Jet offenses were in the 85-86 seasons, give me the '68 Jets any day of the week.
