A short sample size so far, but I had the feeling, that most fans REALLY love the first Jet's team that they were introduced to.  For me, it was the 1981/82 Jets.  Might as well list that entire roster as my favorite Jets off all time.  No game in Jet's history still PISSES ME OFF like the f*****g Mud Bowl... Even though that was my "first love", I sill have to add later Jets, Mangold and Revis to my list.  Two legendary Jets of the modern era

  1. Namath
  2. Boozer
  3. Snell
  4. Sauer, Jr
  5. Maynard
  6. Philbin
  7. Lammons
  8. Klecko
  9. Plunkett
  10. Jim Turner

60's

the "early team" theory holds. Part of that is we grow up. get older, discover girls (or boys or sheep or whatever floats your boat) and idolize elsewhere. Reasonable cognition turns this from being your identity to your entertainment. "First" team, BTW included Bake Turner, Pete Liske, Dainard Paulson and LaVerne Torczon (he was in the '64 Mets yearbook)

Me too! To me, he was the 2nd coming of Darrol Ray, who I listed above. I think we got both McMillan and Hasty in the same draft. Not too shabby.

Most Jets I have met past and present are all equal in my book. If I had to choose one it would be Joe, or Joe, or even, Joe.A1A7116D-D4A1-4C14-B69D-ADE862FC7F4B_1_201_a.thumb.jpeg.238ad6fe7261b81b34161f02cf1fad6f.jpegC923D643-8564-4196-98A1-D5E1F1F9AC37.thumb.jpeg.2d56e40ff77b48e2434fb6877f201163.jpeg

Both in the 3rd round.

Butchered the rest of the draft (jets)

Along with an instinct to pick footballs out of the air, I recall McMillin had major issues with Bruce Coslet, who was one of my least liked Jets coaches.  If memory serves, McMillian wanted to "freelance" and Coslet wanted him to act as a cog in a disciplined defense... Not sure, though... I remember an article in the Bergen Record from that time where McMillin was quoted to say that Coslet was trying to wreck his career...

Pretty good run stopper.  Not visible like Sack Exchange guys, but a value pick for sure...

1. Nanath

2. Chrebet

Rest in no order:

Mangold

Braylon Edwards (not a popular choice probably but he was underrated as a player before his injury, and was a little odd but not destructive. Choosing Holmes over Edwards was idiotic.)

Santana Moss/L. Coles 

Cotchery

Klecko

Walker

Darnold

Testaverde

 

55 years old
