In its infancy, the New York franchise in the NFL football league was plagued by poor ownership decisions and little fanfare. Harry Wismer was the original owner of the team that carried the name of the New York Titans. Due to his incompetence and loud feud driven style, the team struggled early on. Instead of championships, controversies were the only thing in abundance. However, once David Werblin secured the franchise from bankruptcy, the entire culture and tradition of the team changed drastically.

After Werblinís purchase, the name was changed from Titans to New York Jets and Weeb Ewbank was hired as head coach.  In 1964 the moves continued with the upgrade from Polo Grounds to the newly designed Shea Stadium. These changes brought renewed interest and passionate fans. This allowed the New York Jets the ability to begin constructing a NFL football powerhouse that would dominate the league for years.

The transition was slow at first, but the addition of Joe Namath catapulted the Jets to championship contention and League wide notoriety. In 1968, Namath along with Don Maynard led the Jets to an improbable Super Bowl victory over the Baltimore Colts. This championship helped cement Joe Namathís legacy and garnered the NFL football league much attention. This Super Bowl game is considered to be one of the main reasons NFL football is so popular, even in todayís culture. After this unexpected victory the Jets struggled to maintain success until the 1980ís.

During the 1980ís the New York Jets were regularly in the playoffs and reached the AFC championship game in 1982. Though the Jets lost to the Miami Dolphins, fans continued to support and watch their team from the new stadium in New Jersey. MetLife Stadium is home for the New York Jets and thousands of their impassioned fans. During itís existence, MetLife Stadium has sold out every single game for the last twenty years. This is due to the loyalty and dedication of New York Jets fans.

After many rough years in the early 2000ís, the New York Jets are back in contention for championships. With the leadership and unique coaching style of Rex Ryan the Jets have seen recent success. Mark Sanchez has become a young quarterback with lots of potential and Darrelle Revis is one of the best defensive players in todayís NFL football league. Since the 2010 season, the New York Jets have gone far in the playoffs, but have ultimately fallen short in winning a championship.  Due to their talent and coaching leadership they should be primed for future success.

If nothing else is known, you can be sure that Jets fans will support their team through any successes or failures. New York Jets fans have become attached to the new regime and have high hopes for the future. If Sanchez and Revis maintain their excellent play, the New York Jets will be in contention with the Pittsburgh Steelers and the New England Patriots for the AFC crown. Eventually they will capture their elusive Super Bowl victory and reward their fan base.
