About New York Jets

New York Jets ticketsNew York Jets team began in 1960 as a charter member of the American Football League under the name Titans of New York. It was renamed after a five-man syndicate bought the team in 1963. The Jets later joined the NFL as part of the AFL-NFL Merger.

New York Jets hold the distinction of being the first AFL team to defeat an NFL club in an AFL-NFL World Championship Game when they defeated the Baltimore Colts in Super Bowl III.

In the 2009 NFL Draft, the Jets traded with newly hired Browns coach Eric Mangini to acquire the 5th overall pick and selected quarterback Mark Sanchez from USC. In the exchange, the Jets had traded its original first round pick (#17 overall) and four players. The Jets also traded up in the third round to acquire Iowa running back Shonn Greene. On June 9, 2009 the Jets and Mark Sanchez agreed to a 5-year/$50 million deal with $28 million guaranteed, becoming the highest-paid New York Jet in the history of the franchise. The 2009 season was quite a roller coaster. They started off 3-0 and then lost 3 straight. They eventually lost a close one against the Falcons. After the game coach Rex Ryan said the Jets were out of the playoffs. He was dead wrong. The Jets won their next game, and along with needed losses by the Ravens, Dolphins and Texans, made the Playoffs by destroying the Bengals 37-0 on the last game of the season, and the last ever at the Meadowlands. The Jets will play the Bengals on Saturday, January 9.

As of 2009, the Jets' flagship radio station is WEPN, 1050 ESPN, with Bob Wischusen as the play-by-play announcer and Marty Lyons as the color analyst. From 2002–2008, games were simulcast on WABC, the former sister station of WEPN and the Jets' then-flagship, largely due to WABC's much stronger signal. WABC took over the radio rights from WFAN, who aired Jet games from 1993–1999 after purchasing those rights from its current sister station WCBS following the 1992 season.

Any preseason games not nationally televised are shown on WCBS-TV, channel 2 (using a slightly modified version of the on-air graphics package used by CBS Sports for their national AFC telecasts), and rebroadcast on SportsNet New York. Ian Eagle, who was previously the radio voice of the Jets, calls the action on those telecasts.
