    Bad Jets Jersey Purchases

    Doug Gottlieb is filling in for Cowherd today and I caught an funny/interesting segment that was more or less talking about how Jeremy Lin jersey sales will probably go through the roof, and it's quite possible in a month or 2 from now, those possibly will be looked back on as "Bad Purchases" by the fans that buy them.

    They went on to talk about some other sports/teams that would fit into this category where fans buy into the hype/excitement a little too soon and end up with a jersey that is irrelevant shortly after.

    Some examples were:

    Aaron Brooks Saints Jersey.
    Scottie Pippen Rockets Jersey.
    Tim Biakabatuka Panthers Jersey.
    Ron Mercer Celtics Jersey.
    Darryl Strawberry Dodgers Jersey.
    Ki'Jana Carter Bengals Jersey etc.

    So my question is, what are some of the bad personal jersey purchases for the Jets fans on this board.

    I personally have never had a jersey, but the one I remember really wanting was a Neil O'Donnell jersey in 7th grade after he came to the Jets. At that point in time, I thought he was going to be the man.

    Santana Moss, Abraham, Pennington, Leon Washington. All fails.

    They weren't fails. Moss and Abraham were very successful. Leon had extremely bad luck and was a playmaker for the Jets. Pennington was intended to be the next Joe Montana until he became Mr. Glass.

    Regardless if he's back with the team he's a pos.

    Well.. let's see...

    In 1993 I purchased an official Jeff Lageman jersey. He soon left for Jacksonville.

    In 2007 I purchased a Kerry Rhodes jersey. I have since burned it.

    Since then, it's been the cheap Chinese knockoffs for me, and even then my luck has followed me - my first two purchased were Shonn Greene in 2010 and Nick Mangold two week prior to his injury this season.

    I got my Kerry Rhodes and Jon McGraw jerseys.

    My nephew has a Kellen Clemens jersey. That was his first jersey, he was 6 at the time, that's unfortunate. I think he got a Kris Jenkins jersey since then.

    My cousin bought a Justin McCariens jersey. That has to be up there as bad buys.

    Favre is definitely the worst, I guess my second would have to be James Farrior

    For me, it's Favre. Although I don't regret buying it when I did. Of course I don't wear it anymore.
