Most memorable play in Jets History?

Recommended Posts

my most memorable play goes back to the 1968 play-off game against the raiders,  the raiders were driving for the go ahead td with very little time left and were inside the jets 20 when stabler threw a backwards pass that fell to the ground and the running back did not pick it up and larry grantham fell on the ball and the jets ran out the clock and went to the super bowl.

Shonn Greene sleeping in the end zone is a good one too

Off field:

Bart Scott interview with Sal Pal

One that is not the best or mos important but the catch by Braylon Edwards near the sideline to set up the Folk GW filed goal vs the colts is up there.

On the negative side the roughing penalty vs Barton in the playoff game to let San Diego tie the game.

(These plays just stick out for me in the limited time I've been a Jets fan.)

Butt fumble is only memorable based on the culture around it. It had no impact on the season.

Mine would be Morrals interception (Johnny Sample) at the end of the half when Jimmy Orr was wide open and the band camouflaged him

Gastineaus roughing the passer is much worse

Yeah so I've heard I was not around back then.  All I know is I don't think I have been that mad at one player in any sport for any one play as I was with Barton.  I was totally enraged at the stupidity.

But they won the game anyway. Thanks to Nate Kaeding

off the top of my head the Braylon catch down the sideline against the colts to set up game winning fg , don't think I've anticipated a single play as much as that one ... Also props to collinsworth who was calling for that exact play right before the snap ... Pretty sad that's it at age 26 -__-

Not that this is a play but I was going to say the Namath finger-wag as the most memorable positive "play" in Jets' history.  If we follow the rules of the question fairly though, maybe the Wesley Walker OT TD to beat the Dolphins in the shootout is a realistic choice.  

 

In terms of worst moment, let me think out loud.  Off the top of my head, these are some possibilities: 

-Butt-fumble (didn't have "meaning" though as I think that was the year we beat NE in the post-season)

-Fake-spike (prob cost us the playoffs)

-Gastineau roughing in 1986 playoffs against Cleveland (almost certainly cost us that game)

I'm usually an 80's or 90's guy.

But the S. Greene run @ San Diego to send us to the afc championship always stood out to me.

I thought they had no chance of winning the game, and doom and glooming, waiting for us to blow it. Then, BAM, he was gone and we were going on.
