From Joe Namath’s Super Bowl guarantee in 1969 to Mark Gastineau’s legendary “Sack Dances” in the 1980s to coach Rex Ryan’s own Super Bowl prediction in 2010, the New York Jets have been grabbing headlines and thrilling fans for more than five decades. In New York Jets: The Complete Illustrated History, author Mark Cannizzaro explores these and countless other memorable moments, characters, and behind-the-scenes exploits of “Gang Green.” From the team’s origins as the New York Titans of the AFL in 1960, the Jets have followed a rollercoaster ride from postseason heroes to bottom dwellers, but through it all the fans have come out to support such legendary players as Don Maynard, Namath, Wesley Walker, Joe Klecko, Marty Lyons, Mickey Shuler, Curtis Martin, and stars of today Mark Sanchez and Darrelle Revis, among others. Complete with hundreds of photos and detailed stats, this book is a glorious celebration of the J-E-T-S, Jets, Jets, Jets!

 

Mark Cannizzaro has covered the Jets for the New York Post for nearly 20 years, and he has also covered golf, NCAA tournament basketball, the NBA, NHL, boxing, and tennis. This is his third book on the New York Jets.

MVP Books has been producing these illustrated histories of NFL teams for the past few years and is now about one-third of the way through the league’s 32 clubs. Most of this volume’s action photos and reproductions of football cards and other memorabilia are in color and attractively laid out. Veteran sportswriter Cannizzaro (New York Post) tells the history of the team through its coaches—from Sammy Baugh of the 1960 New York Titans to Rex Ryan of today’s media savvy Jets. While the Jets have won only one Super Bowl in their 51 years, they have had a colorful heritage, particularly capturing the imagination of football fans in the 1960s because of flashy quarterback Joe Namath and today owing to flamboyant head coach Ryan. The text is augmented by sidebars on notable players like Namath, Curtis Martin, and Darrelle Revis as well as on significant moments in team history like when NBC left a game to air Heidi in 1968, Super Bowl III, and the weird departure of coach Bill Parcells. An appendix lists the basic team records, and there is a foreword by Namath. VERDICT This well-executed team history will be of interest to all football fans.—John Maxymuk, Rutgers Univ. Lib., Camden, NJ

"There’s a terrific new book out that every Jets fan will want either under the Christmas tree or next to the Menorah. New York Jets: The Complete Illustrated History is a wonderful trip through Jets history dating back to their birth as the Titans of New York back in 1960....It’s a great read but also includes tons of great photos that will certainly bring back a lot of memories. I have followed the Jets since I was a young lad and I can’t put the book down. Congratulations Mark on a job well done!" - Peter Schwartz, newyork.cbslocal.com / WFAN Radio
