When I was a 4 year old kid I would just watch football and didn't really know what was going on. My favorite color was green so I started to like the Jets because they have green and white uniforms. That is what makes them the Jets, GANG GREEN. Through the good times and the bad times I have stuck with them becasue they are my green and white Jets.
So what is up with the stupid NFL and their ridiculous marketing idea they have employed by having teams advertise their 50th aniversary with horrible uniforms, especially the Jets. In todays game against the Titans, the Jets were dressed as the Titans and the Titans were dressed as the Oilers. While I was already annoyed at the NFL's new marketing tactic in the Titans(Tennessee) uniforms, I was furious about the Jets uniforms. They are a putrid blue and mustard/gold combo that mirrors the throwup I have from seeing them. I just didn't have the same passion for the game I was watching. There was something missing, something wasn't right. It just didn't feel like I was watching a Jets game.
I am passionate about watching the Green and White of the Jets on the Gridiron. Sure I knew who the players were by the numbers on their jerseys, but it just wasn't the same. It completely ruined my experience as a fan for a team that I have supported for all these years.
I think that if the Jets want to wear throwback uniforms, then they should wear the uniforms that the Jets wore when Joe Namath was under center. Some might say that is what they wear now, but its not. The green back then was lighter green and the uniforms looked different then todays. If that doesn't work then they should wear the uniforms of the time of the New York Sack Exchange with Klecko and Gastineau. Really any classic Jets uniform would work instead of these sorry excuse of a marketing campaign.
The only thing that looked dumber on the field then the Jets Titans uniforms were the pumpkin patch zebras. One might find it puzzling that there would ever be the words pumpkin and zebra in the same sentence, but thanks to the geniuses in the NFL it has just happened in this article. I mean they looked completely absurd and idiotic. I am all about knowing your history but the line has to be drawn somewhere. To use the parlance of our times, it is what we would call an Epic Fail.
