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 32
The Jets seem to enter each season saying how excited they are for cornerback Juston Burris, but the former fourth round pick has been in and out of the line-up due to his poor consistency. He'll be up against it to even make the roster this year.
Running back Emerson Boozer was one of the Jets' stars during the sixties and seventies and a key contributor to the Super Bowl III winning team. He scored 64 touchdowns and racked up over 6,600 yards from scrimmage in his 10-year career, during which he had nine 100-yard games.
Here's his overtime game-winner against the Giants in 1974:
The other 32's
Blair Thomas, Leon Johnson, Kevan Barlow...
32 years ago
In 1986, the Jets were the hottest team in the league at 10-1 only to then suffer a bunch of injuries and lose their last five games. They still almost made the AFC title game only to lose in double-overtime to the Browns in the playoffs. We detailed that earlier in our countdown, here.
32 yard score
Here's Braylon Edwards on a 32-yard pass from Mark Sanchez in Denver in 2010. The Jets won their fifth game in a row on a late touchdown by LaDainian Tomlinson having been rescued on a fourth and long interference call:
Clutch from 32
Here's Nick Folk's clutch field goal to beat the Colts in the 2010 playoffs. This is a YouTube instead of a gif, because it's better with sound:
32 on the scoreboard
The Jets' 32-31 win over the Seahawks in 1998 led to the advent of instant replay as Vinny Testaverde's game-winning touchdown shouldn't have counted. The controversy overshadowed a thrilling win that saw the Jets overturn a late 12-point deficit behind Testaverde's 418 passing yards and a big game from Keyshawn Johnson.
Let us know if there's any connections to 32 that we missed...
