    Haha, the "green pants" thing is on Wikipedia!

    I thought that it was just a few of you guys that complained about this on this message board..but apparently not. Behold the following on Wikipedia, under "Logos and uniforms":

    "In 2001, the team introduced green pants which are sometimes worn on the road with the white jersey or at home in an all green combination. Some Jet fans seem to think they are unlucky.

    New coach Eric Mangini did not use the green pants until the Jets' victory at New England Nov. 12, but ditched them after the team lost at home to Buffalo Dec. 10. New York subsequently won road games at Minnesota and Miami wearing the all-white combination, then clinched a playoff berth on New Year's Eve with a home win over Oakland wearing the familiar green jerseys and white pants. However, the team wore white-green in their playoff game vs. the New England Patriots on January 7. They lost 37-16."

    I hate the green pants. But luck doesn't have anything to do with it.
