This is a logo of the New York Jets football team that plays in the National Football League. It was used from 1978 until 1997. The franchise originated in the American Football League in 1960 as the New York Titans, and was renamed the Jets after being purchased by Sonny Werblin in 1963. The name was chosen because the Jets would play their home games at Shea Stadium, near LaGuardia Airport. Werblin also hired a formerly successful NFL coach, Weeb Ewbank, to coach the team, and he held that post for 11 seasons, winning the Super Bowl in 1969. Players in the Hall of Fame who played the majority of their careers with the Jets are few, including Joe Namath, Don Maynard and Curtis Martin.
