    Now I know why the Jets haven't won -- the SI jinx. And that's a major one. Richard F Todd on an SI cover? Jinxed forever we are.

    Great gif!!

    Tell me, how much the defense has missed that the past couple of years?

    It is a crime that his knees just wouldn't hold up. Go back and watch the NE games he played in. He destroyed their OL.

    You can also see why a guy like him would get frustrated at this team for not performing well and being little b*tches.

    same play, a split second earlier, from a different angle?

    At first I didn't think so, but there's Snell almost in the same spot and the pass rusher coming right up the middle with arm raised--can't see the RB blocking him in the second pick.

    Looks like it--very cool--never seen those two shot juxtaposed thusly.

    I don't think it is, I just think it is the same play being run another time. The shot of him with the ball in the air has a blocker in frame with the pass rusher. The one of him still holding the ball, the pass rusher is free and practically on top of him.

    I suppose he could have ducked that guy and tried another jump pass.:dunno:

    EDIT- NVM, I think you are right. The other shot is [I]another[/I] pass rusher being blocked and starting to come free. Good eye. :yes:

    I think you can see it better from a lower vantage point.

    I love how the dust is being stirred up around the players feet.

    They couldn't pose for a better picture. Very dramatic.

    BTW, might be the same play-call but it is not the same exact play. Still amazing.

    Here is the Times interview from January with Barton Silverman about the leap photo. Click the link to see other great photos of Joe, including the AFL Championship game.

    Barton and the Jet
    By DAVID GONZALEZ

    Having a conversation with Barton Silverman is like following a hockey game, where words scoot by like a puck on ice — glancing off events, people and places before it glides into the goal. That can mean a lot of interesting asides, considering the countless games, big and small, he has covered as a longtime sports photographer.

    “In any career there is always that symbolic picture, like Joe Rosenthal and that famous picture of Iwo Jima,” he said. “Alfred Eisenstaedt’s shot of the couple kissing. Everybody associates you in some way, if you make that iconic shot.”

    Barton Silverman’s 1966 picture of Joe Namath, above, what the photographer calls “my iconic picture.”

    He did. On Sept. 18, 1966, Mr. Silverman was in the end zone at Shea Stadium, when he captured Jets quarterback Joe Namath – and the football – airborne.

    “I was lucky enough as a kid to make my iconic picture,” he said. “The Leap. That is world-renowned.”

    Gear, access and the game have all changed since that day. So, too, has journalism. He was moonlighting as the Jets’ team photographer when he made his first famous shot. His day job? Working at The New York Times, where he started as a lab assistant in 1962 and became a staff photographer in 1966. (He said the paper banned such freelancing in 1973.) “We all did side things,” he recalled. “If you knew what we were making as staffers, you would’ve croaked.”

    It also allowed him to make his reputation.

    “I had to prove myself,” he said. “Nobody was giving us a gift, like making you an intern for three years then hiring you on staff. You had to do your own assignments and come up with your own ideas. I had a flair for sports.”


    His most famous subject – Namath – was no slouch in the flair department.

    “This guy, Namath, you could point a camera at him anywhere and get a picture,” he said. “He had this electricity. There was always something about Joe. If he showed up at a Thanksgiving party, everybody wanted to see him cut the turkey. Everybody wanted to be his friend.”

    The day he photographed Broadway Joe’s leap, Mr. Silverman had positioned himself in the end zone, waiting. He had no idea Namath was going to jump up to throw, though he had seen him do it before. Then Namath dropped back, and let loose.

    “In those days, you couldn’t shoot eight frames a second,” he said. “You were lucky if you had one frame in focus.”

    A colleague who had been covering the game was boasting that he, too, had the shot.

    “’I got it! I got it!’ he says,” Mr. Silverman recalled. “You might think you have it. But until you see it in the film, you shouldn’t talk about it.”

    Which is why today we’re talking with Barton Silverman, and not that colleague of his.

    Of course, freelancing for the Jets, there were some scenes he would never get. During a 1971 exhibition game against Detroit, Namath injured his knee. The team doctor told Mr. Silverman to go to the locker room.

    “It was one of those old stadiums,” Mr. Silverman said. “The scene in the locker room is like a Frankenstein movie, long tables with lights above them. Everybody is gathered around Joe.”
    He never got in the way. But “he was always there.” Joe Namath on Barton Silverman’s eye for football.


    Just as he raised his camera to make the shot, Namath’s lawyer told him to stop.

    “I blew it,” Mr. Silverman said. “At that point it could have been a career-ending injury.”

    He did not, however, blow his chance to shoot the Jets’ 16-7 upset of the Baltimore Colts in Super Bowl III. He had originally gone on a Vermont ski vacation with some pals, one of whom asked him why he wasn’t going to the game. Good question – not that anyone was expecting the Jets to win. But it set off some calls that led him to make his own way to Miami.

    “That was the best investment I ever made in my life,” he said. “That was one of the big events of my career. Everybody wanted those pictures. Nobody wanted me – until the Jets won the Super Bowl.”

    Next weekend, Barton Silverman will cover his 41st.

    This post has been revised to reflect the following correction:

    Correction: February 5, 2012

    A caption last Sunday with a picture essay about Joe Namath misidentified the man shown with Namath and Jets Coach Weeb Ewbank after the team won the Super Bowl in 1969. They were with Namath’s father, John — not with the Jets’ owner, Leon Hess. Because of an editing error, another caption with a picture showing Namath stretching in the aisle of a plane misidentified the city from which the Jets were flying in August 1971 after Namath sustained a knee injury in a game. While the Jets played the Detroit Lions, the game was in Tampa, Fla., not in Detroit.

    1997-98 right? I was at that game in Miami with my father. My first road game.
