No franchise has fallen further from the heights of our atmosphere and crash landed back down to the earth worse than the New York Jets since that stout defense of 2011 took them to back-to-back AFC championship games.
I think it may be time for more than just a redesign of helmets in New Jers…errr York. Fans have been calling for owner Woody Johnson’s head for some time now. And while that may not happen anytime soon, at least we can hold out hope for some slick new helmets.
How about those pilot helmets in concept 2? Now THAT would be awesome. I’d love to see more teams take the path of completely owning up to the visual representation of their respective mascot / monikers. Jets Football helmets that look like actual fighter jet pilot helmets would be a great start.
Jets — Being completely honest, this uniform is just plain lazy. You’re just taking a gray and green motif, and emblazoning the Jets logo used in the in the 80’s and 90’s on the middle of the jersey. It may not be the best look for their new franchise quarterback, Sam Darnold.
