New York Jets By The Numbers - Updates

We are responsible - by law, actually - for updating the New York Jets By the Numbers already completed: 1-28.

The following are new additions to the NYJBTN:

# 3 - Jay Feeley

# 4 - Brett Favre

# 5 - Brett Ratliff

# 6 - Reggie Hodges

# 9 - Erik Ainge

#14 - Marcus Henry

#17 - David Clowney

#22 - Jesse Chatman and Ty Law

#23 - Hank Poteat

#27 - Abram Elam

Speaking as our franchise's self-appointed, unofficial and purely subjective historian and hopeless fan, I would like to belatedly welcome each of the above to our ongoing list of numbers for professional football's landmark franchises of unrealized high expectation. You could all have gotten a job acting in a soap opera that pays very well (General Hospital or the Dallas Cowboys), but you guys are cast in an endless, four-act, presentational Eugene O'Neill play that no one reads anymore, as performed in a North Central Jersey playhouse. Damn straight.
