About History of the New York Jets in brief
The New York Jets are an American football team. The team was founded in 1959 as the Titans of New York. The Titans won the American Football League championship in 1968. The Jets moved to Shea Stadium in 1964. In 1998, the Jets hired two-time Super Bowl winning coach Bill Parcells. In 2009 and 2010, the team achieved back-to-back appearances in the AFC Championship Game, losing to the Indianapolis Colts and Pittsburgh Steelers. In 2010 the team began to play in MetLife Stadium, constructed near the now-demolished Giants Stadium. New York has won the Super Bowl three times, most recently in 2007. The franchise has also won the Lombardi Award for the best performance by a U.S. team in the NFL, twice in the NFC Championship Game and once in the divisional championship game. It is the only team in NFL history to have won two or more Super Bowls in the same season. It has won two Super Bowl titles, the first in 1968 and the most recent in 1998. It was the first NFL team to be named after a New York city resident, and the first to be owned by a former New York City attorney. It also became the first team to have its name changed from the Titans to the Jets after the AFL merged with the NFL in 1970. It played its first game at Shea Stadium on November 24, 1959. On December 17, 1959, the Titans selected Notre Dame quarterback George Izo as their first pick in the AFL draft. On January 7, 1960, they hired former Redskins coach Sammy Baugh as their general manager.
On the same day, the league announced that Sebo Sebo had been fired as the University of Pennsylvania Quakers’ head coach despite taking the Quakers to the Ivy League championship. On November 17, 1961, the NFL announced that the Titans would be its first New York-based franchise. They were owned by Harry Wismer, a former sportscaster who had been a minority shareholder in both the Washington Redskins and Detroit Lions. In the 1960s, New York had limited success, reaching the playoffs only once and enduring a string of disastrous seasons, including a 1–15 record in 1996. In 1981, the franchise qualified for the playoffs for the first time in the post-Namath era. They reached the AFC Championships Game in 1982; they were defeated on a rain-soaked Orange Bowl field by the Miami Dolphins. In 1986, the club reached its most successful season since the merger in 1998; the Jets finished 12–4 and reached the NFL Championship Game in which they fell to the Denver Broncos. They have won the league’s Super Bowl III title three times in the last seven seasons. The last time they won the title was in 1998, when the Jets defeated the Baltimore Colts in Super Bowl IV. In 2011, they won their first Super Bowl title since the AFL merger with the win over the Colts in the game against the Colts. The club has won three Super Bowl crowns in its history.
