New York Jets Tickets

The New York Jets most successful period in football began shortly after the team was formed in 1960. In 1965 the New York Jests drafted Joe Namath as quarterback out of Alabama. Namath went on to take the Jets out of the slump that they were in, and to win the AFC East Division titles in both 1968 and 1969. Namath strong armed the team for those seasons and created a name not only for himself, but also for the entire team.

New York Jets tickets for the 2011 NFL's season schedule are seats to MetLife Stadium to enjoy quarterback Mark Sanchez's breakout third season. For the last couple seasons the first round draft pick has shown glimpses of greatness, ultimately relying on the Rex Ryan defense to put him in a position. This season he has to be the player to put this football team in position to take first or second in the AFC East and advance to the AFC Championship game.

The Jets 2011 schedule at first appears treacherous, but a closer look makes it clear the slate of games actually benefits the team. Yes, New York has to play New England twice, and the Jets get to play the always-confounding NFC East over the course of the season. However, the Jets have the best center in football and play 11 teams that utilize the 3-4 defense. For those who do not know what this means, New York already has disarmed one of the most important positions in this particular scheme. This opens up running lanes and gives the routes time to develop to make the quarterback's job easier.

As mentioned above, Mark Sanchez has to have a breakout season. He also has to work with a new group of receivers, namely Santonio Holmes, Plaxico Burress, and Derrick Mason. Holmes is still an electrifying playmaker with speed, but Burress is 34 with rust and Mason is 37. Tight end Dustin Keller is back, but ideally he would not be the leading receive. Running back Shonn Greene must make a similar jump. His success will determine Sanchez's. If Greene can take advantage of the very good offensive line, then Sanchez will has more time to let the play develop as the opposition is forced to respect the run. If Greene is not able to pick up more than four yards a carry, then Jets tickets will be available to watch Sanchez scrambling to avoid incoming defenders.

Rex Ryan has engineered a defense that does not so much blitz, as show blitz before retreating into coverage. In seasons past, this has worked wonders. This season will be a bit more of a challenge though. The defensive line is so thin depth wise that rookie Muhammad Wilkerson is going to start. He is going to start beside Ropati Pitoitua, and Mike Devito. New York's linebacker group of David Harris and Bart Scott on the inside and Calvin Pace and Bryan Thomas on the outside is a phenomenal quartet, but one injury and the lack of talent on the sidelines becomes obvious.

The Jets defense relies on cornerback Darrelle Revis to shut down half of the field and he is quite capable doing just that. This allows safeties Jim Leonhard, Brodney Pool and Eric Smith to cover for corner Antonio Cromartie on the other side of the secondary.

New York Jets History

The New York Jets have been playing since 1960 and in the time since those first Jets tickets were sold the franchise has delivered one league championship and four division championships. That one championship came in 1968, when Joe Namath guaranteed a win for the underdog AFL Jets against the NFL's Colts. Namath led the football team to a 16-7 win and earned the Super Bowl MVP. Namath's career followed an up and down path in the seasons to follow, but the Jets fortunes had take a turn for the worse until the 1980s.

Quarterback Ken O'Brien and defensive lineman and sackmasters Mark Gastineau and Joe Klecko became the beacons of hope for Jets fans. Unfortunately, 1983 Defensive Player of the Year Gastineau retired in 1988 after injuries proved too great a setback for his promising career. O'Brien could not live up to the hype and could never live up to being drafted before Dan Marino. The Jets once again struggled from the middle of the 1980s too the middle of the 1990s, when Bill Parcells would turn things around briefly for the franchise. Running back Curtis Martin and quarterback Vinny Testaverde led the 1998 Jets to a 12-4 record and the AFC Championship game, where the Denver Broncos put an end to the season.

In the years since Parcells departure as head coach, the Jets have tried time and again to rebuild around a strong defense and running game. In 2009 they drafted Mark Sanchez, recognizing that the NFL had changed.
