New York Jets

NEW YORK JETS HISTORY & INFORMATION

2009 New York Jets Football Preview:

2009 will be a transition season for the New York Jets. Gone are 2008 quarterback Brett Favre and Coach Eric Mangini. In are former backup QB Kellen Clemens and new Head Coach Rex Ryan. Ryan comes to the Jets from the Baltimore Ravens, where he fielded one of the most intimidating defenses in the NFL. Ryan also went and recruited one of the top players from that Ravens defense, linebacker Bart Scott, who joins the Jets in 2009. With Ryan’s leadership, Scott and company should be one of the most improved defenses in the entire AFC. On offense Clemens will take the reins with the hopes that he can improve upon the nice season that Favre had in ’08. If Ryan’s defense and Clemens’ offense are firing on all cylinders, then the AFC East might decide which AFC team makes the Super Bowl.

The New York Jets play football in the East Division of the American Football Conference (AFC) of the National Football League (NFL). The Jets franchise was founded in 1960 as the New York Titans. The team was renamed after the Jet planes landing at LaGuardia Airport next to the Jets home field at Shea Stadium. Joe Namath would help lead the Jets to its only Super Bowl (retroactively called Super Bowl III). The Jets have been regular visitors to the postseason, but never managed much success there. The 2006 season saw a surprise finish with a 10-6 record, but 2007 was a disappointment. We’ll see what the Jets can do this coming year.
