Building A GGN All Time Jets Team

Let’s crowd source a Gang Green Nation All Time Jets Team.

From now until mid July I’ll be putting up a daily poll asking GGN to vote on the best Jets players of all time. The idea here is to build a 55 man roster of the best players ever to wear the Green and White. The roster will consist of 26 offensive players, 26 defensive players, and three special team players. It will be broken down as follows:

OFFENSE

Quarterback: 3

Wide Receiver: 6

Running Back: 4

Tight End: 3

Offensive Tackle: 4

Interior Offensive Line: 6

DEFENSE

Safety: 4

Cornerbacks: 6

Linebackers: 7

Edge: 4

Interior Defensive Line: 5

SPECIAL TEAMS

Kicker: 1

Punter: 1

Returner: 1

Every day I will be putting up a poll at one position, starting with the kickers. The choices will be limited to players who were on the Jets roster for at least three seasons. I will not be including players who were great for other teams but not great for the Jets (for example, guys like Matt Forte or LaDainian Tomlinson will not be included in the polls, though both those guys would be excluded for not meeting the three year rule as well). Each day we will close the previous day’s poll and the candidate with the most votes will be added to the GGN All Time Jets Team. In the event of a tie vote both players will be added to the team.

In the event I have made an egregious omission and a name you think should be on the poll is not there you can write in candidates in the comments section. If a player gets support in the comments section I’ll add him to the next day’s poll.

So let’s get to it. Today we start with the kicker on the crowd sourced GGN All Time Jets Team. Who will it be? Vote early, vote often, and let’s hear who you think are the best players ever to have played for the Jets.
