Countdown to Camp: 25

As we look ahead to training camp in late July, we're taking a daily retrospective look back at some random people, moments and games from Jets history...

The Current 25

Elijah McGuire looked destined for a bigger role when he had a break-out game against the Jaguars early in the season. However, he didn't do much after that. Hopefully the Jets will start making use of his considerable abilities in the passing game this year, as it would be good to establish one of their young backs as a part of the core going forward.

The Greatest

Safety Kerry Rhodes was a playmaker during his five years as a Jet. He racked up 15 interceptions, 13 sacks and six forced fumbles. Here's Rhodes in action:


The other 25's

Scott Dierking, Calvin Pryor, Joe McKnight...

25 years ago

The 1993 season was Bruce Coslet's last as the Jets wasted an 8-5 start and missed the playoffs by losing their last three games. We detailed that earlier in our countdown, here.

25-yard touchdown

Here's Freeman McNeil's 25-yard touchdown run against the Browns in the 1986 playoffs:


25 on the scoreboard

A couple of memorable wins with 25 points on the board saw the Jets shut out the Colts in 1981 and beat the Broncos in overtime in their season opener in 1994. Pat Leahy's four field goals and Freeman McNeil's two touchdown runs keyed the win in the 1981 game, while Rob Moore's big day and a Mo Lewis pick-six kept the Jets in the 1994 game until Nick Lowery's overtime field goal won it.

Let us know if there's any connections to 25 that we missed...
