Head coach Rex Ryan and the organization have established the games in which the Jets will wear their Titans throwback uniforms in 2009.
The good news is that, in conjunction with the AFL 50th Anniversary Season theme ahead, the Jets will wear their throwback unis in three games, not two.
The even better news is that in two of those three games, the uniforms will be a new color scheme: Titans white road jerseys with navy letters and numbers and navy and gold striping to go along with the gold pants from the past two seasons.
The only time the Jets will wear their navy jerseys will be Game 3 at the Meadowlands vs. the Tennessee Titans. We hear the Titans will be going with the powder-blue uniforms of their Houston Oilers ancestors, so that game will really capture the 50th Anniversary theme: (New York) Titans vs. (Houston) Oilers.
Then the white jerseys, never before worn by the Jets, will be unveiled in back-to-back games, also against AFL opponents from the Sixties. On Oct. 26 the Jets will wear the white and gold at Oakland against the Raiders. The next week, they'll stay in the white jerseys to play the Miami Dolphins at the Meadowlands.
That will be the first home game in which the Jets wore white jerseys and forced the Dolphins to wear their aqua tops since possibly 1989.
The Jets are 3-1 in 2007-08 while wearing their navy and gold throwbacks, including wins the last three times they wore their old Titans home uniforms — at Miami in '07, then in back-to-back home wins over Arizona and Cincinnati last season.
