    Who Else (if anyone) should be in the NY Jets "Ring of Honor"?

    Just curious, was reading some things on our Hall of Famers and Ring of Honor players to-date.

    Rather than re-hash the "Klecko should be in the Hall" debate, I'd rather see who we think deserves to be in our Ring of Honor that currently isn't?

    As a reference, the ring thus far:

    Joe Namath
    Curtis Martin
    Joe Klecko
    Larry Grantham
    Freeman McNeil
    Wesley Walker
    Don Maynard
    Winston Hill
    Weeb Ewbank
    Gerry Philbin
    Al Toon
    Mark Gastineau

    Only three New York Jets have played more than 200 games with the team:

    Mo Lewis
    Randy Rasmussen
    Kyle Clifton

    Since we are done with quality, time to start talking longevity.

    Chrebet
    Marty Lyons (for career/broadcast career)
    Marvin Powell
    Matt Snell (probably not, but scored one of the iconic TDs in team history)
    Pat Leahy (missed some clutch kicks, but long time Jet and leading scorer)

    No argument other then there aren't any more Jets to honor based on quality of play.

    So unless we get into a long period of not honoring anyone, it looks like the next best thing to honor would be the amount of time they served on the team and the quality relative to that.

    Otherwise, the answer to the question is: Darrelle Revis

    would you rather start a team with Shaun Ellis or Aaron Glenn?

    I could see Wayne Chrebet. I could also see Pat Leahy.

    What about a certain future HOF Center not named Mangold?

    Ellis. It's the more important position.

    Lewis or Ellis? Which do you prefer?

    There is one man who fits the following two criteria:

    Without question, the best assistant coach in New York Jets history.

    Widely regarded as in the Top 2 assistant coaches in his position in NFL history.
