THE SUPERDOME WAS STILL SOLD OUT for that season.

And Breesfan27 is right, other teams who stink STEAL the paper bag idea from New Orleans.
If I remember right, Buddy D did his sports cast wearing a bag during the season and that's when the fans started doing it.

uh uh. We didnt have Richard Todd till '84. But it was a last second pass.

I have memory fog, too.

And Buddy D. started the "Aints" nickname, when he whipped out the first paper bag.

Actually, Richard Todd was the QB for the Jets at that game. We still had Archie at QB.

Another side note about that game....the Jets had a moment of silence in honor of John Lennon (I think it was before the game started). This game took place on the 1st weekend after Lennon was killed outside his apt in NY on Dec. 8.

more cool history, Yat.

I wonder if it was that game that inspired Jets fans to burn Todd's Jersey in the stands?

Every year in the spring when that envelope would come in the mail about renewing season tickets, so many fans would go on and renew. I personally know of this.
you know thats right, Brina.
Im super bummed about getting knocked out by Seattle. Remember, I told you I didnt feel good about that game?

But our tickets? uh uh, we "aint" giving them up for nobody.
