The New York Jets will be wearing the Titan Throwback Jerseys this week when they face the Jacksonville Jaguars. When the Jets made the announcement on twitter, I put out a quick tweet just stating that I don’t mind the Titan Jerseys but would love to see the Kelly Green Jerseys with the Jets logo that had the swoop.
I grew up watching every game in that Jersey until they made the change in 1998. Now here is the argument. Many people say that when the Jets wore the Kelly Greens, it was the darkest period in Jets history and why would we want to go back to those Jerseys. Another argument is that we are only 14 seasons removed from those Jerseys and it might be too soon.
I asked the question yes or no on twitter and I would say the majority of the replies I got back were from fans who wanted to see the Kelly Greens. Many fans still wear their authentic throw backs to the Jets games now. My Father sports his Kelly Green 73, and I’ll be wearing my #90 soon.
I’m not one to believe in a Jinx either. I say bring em back. Have one game in the Titans, and one in Kelly Green. I think that would be great for seasons moving forward.
