Your First Jets Game

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

My first game my father took me to Shea stadium; I think I was about 7; I don't remember that much of the game except that the Jets won and their was a late game interception.

 

My second game was between the Jets and the Giants (I think in the Yale Bowl) in 1974.  It was one of the first (if not the first) regular season overtime game.  The Jets won.  We had end-zone seats; and at one point, Joe Namath hobbled into the end-zone for a TD.  Pretty amazing.

Damn!

That is a heck of a first game.

I was at that one.

One of the best I've been to.

The place exploded when NE made the FG to pave the way for the Jets to win the division that night.

My first game was the 10-7 thriller in Cleveland in 2004. Sat in the Dawg Pound in Jets gear, that was a lot of fun. Also got called a "Jet fan fa***t" by a 12 year old kid when leaving the stadium. His dad just laughed.

September 27, 1981 Houston Oilers at Shea Stadium.

 

Jets opened the year 0-3 and it looked bleak going up against Ken Stabler and Earl Campbell.  We explode for a 33-17 win and go on an unexpected 10-2-1 tear.

That game made me a JETS fan for life.  I was a kid, liked the Giants and JETs about the same.  After THAT game, I swore off the  GIANTS.   What a mistake.....  :mad0259:

I remember some high flying Jets games with Kenny O; the 45-41 (or something like that) shoot out with Miami with W. Walker burning Miami's defense; Marino wasn't the same gain that year.

 

Unfortunately, I was actually at the 45-3 pasting the Dolphins handed us in Miami when we started 10-1; I don't think we won another game after that, we finished like 10-6 and Kenny O was shell shocked from then on.

My 1st ever Jets game that I attended was October 12,2003 my uncle had season tickets then and it was vs the Bills. Jets won 30-3. I have been a fan ever since.

Giants stadium was a much better football stadium then Metlife is that's for sure.

those games were the same year- 1986.  we beat them 51-45 in OT then lost 45-3 to start that 5 game skid to end the season.  that was the point where ken O'Brien's career spiraled down and he never really recovered.  In '85 and about half of '86 he was really good but we didn't get much after that.

1990 Jets Cowboys.  Jets won 24-3 I believe.  Terrance Mathis returned a punt for a TD, think it was over 100 yds and set some kind of record at the time.  Don't recall if it was just a team record or a league/conference record.

 

I was there as a 12 year old. If I'm remembering correctly it was a 98 yard TD punt return and tied a league record.

Kenny basically had 2 good years 85 and 86 yet some Jet fans that grew up when Kenny played think he was great.. Never won a playoff game like Pat Ryan did..Oh and Pat Ryan had a rushing td..LOL

I don't want this thread to go off course but I had a huge argument at a different board recently where they were calling Kenny an all time Jets great :rl:

1st Game in the Astrodome Oct 28TH 1990 8.5 dogs to the Oilers and Warren Moon and we pulled one out of our asses 17-12.

Darrell Davis recovered the Moon fumble for the TD to give us the lead and we held on for the upset.

My father took me to a game where we beat the Bills at Shea, in the early 70's - and all I can remember from that game was that towards the end, Bills receiver Haven Moses was knocked out cold by someone in our secondary, and was taken out on a stretcher. That's all I remember from the game, other than it was cold.

October 17, 1999 against the Colts. My uncle (a Giants fan) had season tickets, so he took me. I remember seeing the reaction from everyone when they realised Ray Lucas was starting instead of Mirer. Didn't change things that day though, with the scores tied, and the Jets inside the Colts 5, he threw a late interception, Colts then marched down the field and kicked the game winner with a few seconds left.
