    Jets vs Dolphins - September 1986

    Hey guys, I hope you are all well. I have not posted in a long time, and haven't been around as much since I was laid off last November.

    That said, with Dolphins/Jets coming up this weekend, I thought it might be fun to revisit a classic. Jets vs Dolphins, September 1986.
    I was 13 years old in 1986, and to this day, I think this is one of the most exciting jets games ever played. enjoy:

    Thanks, Man - I was there that day, and seeing it again and again never gets old for me. Beautiful warm day and the action on the field was non-stop. Marino and O'Brien at their best, and Wesley Walker had his greatest day (IMO) as a Jet.

    I'll never forget the hordes of Jets "fans" leaving in droves late in the 4th after Marino had scored to put Mia. up 45-38. That left us with hundreds of pimply-faced teenagers in teal Marino jerseys, all starting to celebrate. :cool:

    Sucks that you got laid off, I hope things are looking up dude. This is actually one of the first Jet games I remember watching, I was 8 going on 9 at the time and this game brings back memories of my childhood. Soon after my dad would educate me on all the pain he has suffered as life-long Jet fan and how I would now experience the same. And so far, that's pretty much the truth..... :(

    Ugh.

    I was a 7 year-old kid who somehow convinced my parents to leave because "I didn't want to see the Jets lose in my first game". Yup, that was the first Jets game I ever went to (we've had season tickets since 1984)

    My parents still make fun of me about that.

    Because of that I never leave a game early.

    I was there with one of my best friends, who also was a Dolphags fan. We still talk about that game... good times, good times.

    That Jet team was actually not a bad Defensive team, Marino just lit them up.
    Offensively, they were awesome...

    but they fell apart because of all the injuries on both sides of the ball.

    Thanks for the great post!

    Full disclosure, I left the Monday Night Miracle game at 30-7 Miami, 3rd quarter, so I'm not pristine in that department either.

    i didn't have jet tickets at this point and my mom scored me 2 Met/Phillies tickets in the press box. The Mets just clinched the NL East and the game was boring as hell. I was sitting right in front of the Diamond Club and they had the Jet game on. The big screen kept posting the score and Shea would cheer. When the Met game ended i was in my parents car listening to the Jet game and got to hear both the tieing and winning TD.

    If I'm not mistaken, the spike rule hadn't been implemented yet. Thus, there was no [B][I]instant[/I][/B] way to stop the clock.

    I was there too!! Awesome day. Absolutely beautiful. When Walker scored at 00 everyone was hugging each other. Didnt know anyone. And when they scored in OT, forget about it. Came home without a voice. My mom taped the wrong channel on the VCR. Never saw it again.

    Wow, you're like a monk. Some day, the iron bands of karma will wither, and you will know when to leave. When that day comes...no one knows.
