After many months and countless leaks, the Jets finally let their new jerseys fly, unveiling them to the public on Tuesday.

In a dramatic unveiling, four Jets players stood in the back of a military transport plane which was slowly opened. Think Close Enounters of the Third Kind when the UFO opens.

In the end, the jersey comes out pretty similar to what you would have expected. Both of the sweaters simply have the team's emblem in the middle with a couple of stripes around the elbows and at the bottom of the sweater. Sticking with the design, the home jersey is a navy blue to complement the white road uniforms.

Putting this into perspective, they jammed a very lengthy process into a very accelerated time frame to have this done. Considering the team name wasn't even decided until a few months back, the sweaters came out pretty quickly, but still long enough to drum up intense excitement to see what the rebirth of the Jets will look like. In most situations, jersey designs can take well over a year before being released.

Don't like the jersey at all. Should of went with the old Jets jersey. My question is? If your from another country like the US is the flag replacing the leaf? Just a question.


They had to know that eventually they were going to get a team back. And this is the best jersey they could come up with? I'm sure more people than me are hoping for a different possible 3rd jersey.

I am apparently in the minority.  I like the new uniforms.  More specifically, I like the fact that they aren't overdone.  While I would have liked some sort of writing, to indicate Winnipeg or Jets, I'm fine with just a logo.  After all, nobody (at least that I know of) complains about Chicago's or Detroit's lack of writing on their uniforms.

They'll still suck regardless of what the f'ing uniform looks like. At least now looks and skill will match.
