    How were those selected to be called the legacy uniforms, rather than the first ones worn as the Jets? Legacy of what?

    Legacy of ticket sales.

    Unis of the modern era of the NFL. Folks identify with Namath, but more of the Middle aged fans identify with the far more popular Klecko Era Jets. The 80's was when I was old enough to really become a Jet Fan. 70's? I was along for the ride.

    I never saw the original uniforms. My first glimpse of them other than old highlights was when they changed back to something similar after the 80s uniforms. So those 80s uniforms are my legacy.

    Funny how the uniforms look much better when a team is winning.

    The current color green is fine but would look much better with either the 80s logo or the 60s look - but not the modified early 2000s look with that drab olive green. Just keep it simple……do away with the green pants/black pants charade. Nothing beats the Jets classic all whites they wore opening night. Very sharp, clean look….

    But above all …… FIX THE OLINE!! You’d be surprised with all the problems that would fix….

    Agreed…I’d keep the current green color but go back to the classic uni’s that Parcells brought back…but absolutely shitcan that awful olive drab green shit…originally Parcells brought back a darker green that I think they called Hunter green…that was a good color…just Nike fucked it up when they got the uniforms contract pretty much like they fucked up all other uni’s, when they went away from that Hunter green to that god-awful olive drab shit…remember when the jerseys had different materials and the stomach was a different shade of green than the rest of the jersey? Ugh.

    Anyway, I do like the current green helmets though…I’d keep them green, slap the old logo on them, and bring back the old style jerseys with the current shade of green. Get rid of the black stuff. Stick with home look of green jersey white pants and away look of all white. Perfect…no need to fuck with that at all.

    I don't like any combination that includes black-- not helmets, pants, tops, or accents. Just green and white.

    The Rich Kotite-era uniforms, while not as nice as the Walton ones, were much better looking than what we have now ... and we didn't win a thing with Rich Kotite.

    They could go out there wearing potato sacks next year and it would be better than the uniforms we've been wearing for the past 5 seasons.

    Not to mention it would eliminate Woody’s silly Friday uniform reveal on Twitter…..home is dark except maybe early in the season and the road is usually white …. Just like the old days.

    So, what you guys are saying, as I suspected, is it all depends on when you started being a fan and what was being worn at the time. I'll never get used to green helmets with the "Jets" topped with a sharks dorsal fin. I'm sticking with the winning look.

    I liked everything you said up to the home jersey colors. The last time we won a Super Bowl the home colors were all white.

    Actually the Shea stadium uniforms were all white. The road uniforms were green if the opposing team wore white at home.

    Yah, so?

    I honestly don’t understand the love for all whites…I’ll just never get it.

    I love our green, especially this version of it…I would go back to that Namath/Parcells look with the current green. Perfection.

    Only decision is if we should go back to white helmets or keep the current cool green shells and just put the old logo on it

    I could go either way on that.

    Then home should be green jersey white pants, and away should be all white

    Perfection

    It's the way to make those uniforms ugly again.

    Yeah…I grew up watching those…and even back then I hated the helmet…don’t know why with a name like Jets and so much cool imagery they could use either with an actual Jet or even with the NY skyline…anything…but the idiots in charge can’t seem to come up with anything other than simple writing out the word Jets. And in that helmet, it looks SO childish…like a kindergarten kid came up with it. Just plain awful…and to me, one of the worst helmets in the league.

    The jerseys are fine…better than the shit we have now with the stupid New York on the chest and the weird stripe on the sleeve.

    I get the nostalgia, but honestly those uni’s are not great
