1967 New York Jets Notes

April 1, 2020

Of course, it is the 1968 Super Bowl champion New York Jets, who are remembered and rightfully so, as they won it all.

The 1967 version surely was a portent of things to come and within that (8-5-1) season, the fourth game (29-7) win vs the second year, Miami Dolphins, also was a sign of things to come.

I once met Joe Namath, the outstanding and famed Jets’ quarterback and he appreciated my remembering, among other non Super Bowl season accomplishments, his 4,000 plus yards passing, during the 1967 AFL season.

In the tilt vs Miami, Joe threw for 450 plus yards.

Emerson Boozer, who had a great ’67 season, cut short by injury scored 3 touchdowns, 2 on Namath passes, in that game.

He had 13 total touchdowns, when injury caused his season to end in the 10th game of the 14 game regular season schedule.

Emerson Boozer, pictured above, certainly wore a great number for running backs.

Among other true greats, Jim Brown, O.J. Simpson and Franco Harris were running backs, who wore #32 in their playing days.
