    I know Namath and Maynard are the only Jets to have had their numbers retired, which is somewhat surprising. One would think Klecko or Gastineau would have recieved that honor, but no luck. Well, now that Mo Lewis is gone, if he decides to retire, I think we should at least consider honoring him in this manner. I know I won't feel comfortable ever seeing a Jet that isn't Mo Lewis wear the number 57.

    no.

    he wasnt nearly good enough.

    lets be realistic....Mo was an above average linebacker in his prime.

    love the guy, but he wasnt a superstar.

    Superstars get their numbers retired.

    Who the hell are you? Mo was great in his prime.

    Yes he should have his number retired along with Klecko, Shuler, Gastineau, and others.

    If 73 is not retired, no way 57 is even considered.

    Thank you.

    Klecko was on another level than Mo.

    Retire #99????????

    When he walked out on the team because his girlfriend was having some complications?

    When he was considered a cancer in the team.

    I am fine with retiring #73, but #99 wityh all his problems would be an embarassment to retire

    once klecko is retired then mo should be too.

    what about chrebet when he is done if he pass maynard for receptions. if maynard got his number retired then the man that beats his record should have his retired too.


    it is a joke that Klecko doesnt have his number retired. actually more like a discrace

    Until Klecko&#39;s number is retired the only Jets that might deserve consideration are Curtis Martin, Kevin Mawae, Ken O&#39;Brien and Al Toon.

    listen, Im not trying to criticize Mo here...

    he had a good career...which doesnt mean you retire his number. Just because hwas was on the team forever and went to the Pro Bowl a few times doesnt get your number retired.

    litsten to yourselves...we havent even retired Kleckos number...he shoulpd be the guy were talking about.

    This isn&#39;t middle school pal, you don&#39;t got to start pulling out names like a 10 year old.

    Mo rules, and 57 should be retired.

    ON another team, "Yes" his number should be retired. But the jets are stingy about taking clothes away from the rich

    There is no reason for you to comment on Matt39&#39;s head.
    If indeed it is true that he has genitial on his head, I am sure that
    he wants to keep it to himself.

    Or, he could be 7&#39;2 and 300lbs. He could also be mad because your
    getting all bent out of shape about a player&#39;s Jersey that nolonger plays for the Jets.

    Wow, I had no idea when I made this topic how controversial it would be.

    By the way, where the hell did all the Patriots fans go?

    from reading these posts, the trend seems to be-

    jet fans post 1990 - retire mo&#33;
    jet fans pre 1990 - mo was good, but not good enough....


    mo lewis was an above average LB for a decade w/ this team. A solid player on some bad jets squads, a guy who usually handled himself with class. But retiring this guy&#39;s #?&#33;??&#33;? NO WAY. if mo lewis gets his # retired, so do Klecko, McNeil, Walker, Powell, Caster, Fields, Toon, Gratham, and hell, let&#39;s throw in Eric McMillian for ****s and giggles..

    my point exactly.


    people are getting their panties in a bunch over this.

    Mo was a good linebacker, that doesnt mean you retire his number.

    Jet fan from 1968 here.

    I would retire #73, then Toon then Lewis. I would even consider Mehl, but that&#39;s about it. Mo was as good as there was, but was always the focal point for opposing offensive coaches the early 1990&#39;s. H ewas the main cog on defense, and if he was controlled, the Jets would get run over. He was that good.

    True, he didn&#39;t get 15 sacks a year, but he was something else.
