#49 - 1968 NYJ (11-3)
The Jets are undeniably the biggest surprise in Super Bowl history, but they are also one of the least impressive champions. Sure, there's the glitz of Joe Namath and his guarantee of victory over an 18-point favorite. New York also boasted a future Hall of Fame wide receiver in Don Maynard and a solid ground game with Matt Snell and Emerson Boozer. However, the Jets had just the third-best record in the AFL that season. Namath completed fewer than 50 percent of his passes, throwing more interceptions than touchdowns. Coincidentally, Weeb Ewbank coached New York to victory in the Super Bowl over his former team, the Colts. Oh yeah … and the Jets lost the "Heidi" game that season.



Guess who was right on our heels? Last seasons Seahawks! Guess who ranked ahead of us.... The 2004 Superbowl losing Eagles! No respect. ESPN and the rest of the sports world just doesn't respect the Joe Namath or the Jets. Bunch of assholes.

I didn't even notice that! Man that's some disrespect right there.

It's been highly touted that this was the greatest game for the NFL and football ever. It was huge what Joe Willie Namath and the Jets did for the NFL that day. No respect.

Footnote: I say "No respect" alot and in the style of Adam Sandler's CD "What the hell happened to me". Great track.

Oh come on guys...everyone feels as if they are disrespected...fact is the Jets aren't the greatest thing to grace this fine earth. And our Superbowl team wasn't that good...they gave you the reasons...Namath threw more interceptions than TD's...

Who really cares...it's not a lack of respect...so calm down...

Uh, they called the Super Bowl III win a huge upset by the Jets.
Ranking that Colts team ahead of the Jets is actually very logical.
Keep the NY in NY Jets

That jets team changed football. That super bowl win made the NFL. The AFL was considered a joke at that time. True it was not the greatest team to win the superbowl but it changed the structure of the league. We should of been higher than that. Forget the stats. The significance of that win that really matters.

Agreed the game was very significant...and no Jet fan can bitch about that...it's always mentioned how the Jets saved football and the Super Bowl as we know it. But this list isn't about significance...it's about which teams were the best...and the Jets were not the best.

I mean seriously guys...the Jets are ranked 49...what if we were ranked 80? Don't you think every one of the fan's of teams behind of us are bitching about the same thing. Stop the No Respect thing...it's old...

I'll stop it when we atleast rank #40 ahead of the teams that lost the Superbowl. First off, it was a different era. They didn't factor that part in. 2nd, this team actually won the Superbowl against what was supposed to be one of the greatest teams at the time.

Football was played differently then and if you look at what Namath alone did for the development of passing offense... they were the best team around in that vein. Like I said, they are looking purely at stats but not at the quality. Football was a smash mouth sport at one time. You think these teams today, like the 2004 Eagles or the 2005 Seahawks could play against a team that physically abused them like that? I don't.

The NFL is soft these days. It's a timing game now and a "You can't touch me or my QB" kind of league. Back then they'd destroy these QB's and they would fold under the mental pressue of being thrown around like a rag doll. That's what made Joe Namath so great. That's what made this Jets team so great. They were amazing despite the smash-mouthedness... I made that word up btw. I think the article is written by a guy that doesn't respect in general the early game.

Personally, that's like saying Robert Johnson would get schooled by Stevie Ray Vaughn when Robert Johnson is the reason Stevie Ray Vaughn even could play the blues. That's where I'm coming from. Are they the best Superbowl team? No, but they are better than alot of teams that won the Superbowl and alot better than the losers that didn't. Not only that, if you measure them in their era .... they were great. If the team itself wasn't great, how the hell did 2 players go to the HOF?
