It’s Monday night, ladies and gentlemen of Gang Green. The first open practice of training camp is ten days from today. All seems to be quite on the Jets’ front, which is characteristic of the John Idzik reputation/era. There isn’t a lot to talk about these days when looking at our Jets, other than speculation.

So what do we do? We dream of winning the big one! Heck, all of the teams are 0-0, and in football more than any other of the major sports, every team has a shot.

How are we going to do that tonight? We are going to watch highlights of Super Bowl III. I wish, as do the rest of us, that we had a more recent one to look at, but it is what it is. So here we go, courtesy of NFL Films:

Despite all the insults we have taken over the years as Jets’ fans, we did have our day in the sun, albeit a long time ago. It still happened, though. Hope you enjoyed watching, have a good night.
