The New York Jets All-Time Team

Compiling an all-time team can be a lot of fun (albeit time-consuming), and it always leaves plenty of room for discussion and/or argument. The Jets are no exception.

Do you choose guys from the 1968 team over the fabled members of the Sack Exchange? Do you pick steady long-term performers such as Kyle Clifton over more celebrated players with brief Jet careers, such as Bryan Cox?

What about safety? The team has had several decent ones, but none really stands head and shoulders above the others.

Needless to say, some picks (i.e. Namath at QB, Curtis Martin at RB) are no-brainers. Other choices involved a lot of weighing of statistics, service, performance, and even popularity.

As far as the list itself is concerned, I put the starters at the top, with other noteworthy performers listed below them under the heading "honorable mention."

I must admit that my own biases lean toward service (number of years spent with the team), performance (starts at position, All-Pro and Pro Bowl picks), and lastly, popularity (maybe not the greatest player, but a fan-favorite, such as Wayne Chrebet).

That being said, I'll always pick someone like Wesley Walker over Keyshawn Johnson, and Gerry Philbin over John Abraham. Remember, these are just my opinions, and I welcome all readers to leave comments. Enjoy!
