For more than fifty-five seasons, the New York Jets have not basked in an abundance of pride and glory.
Sure, they were led to the "promised land" by Joe Namath with the stunning Super Bowl III upset victory that capped the magical 1968 season.
Since then, however, the Jets have careened through life alternating between bumbling and embarrassing, maddening and entertaining, all along the way teasing their ardent fan base so tantalizingly that, rather sadistically, it has become a way of life.
In Tales from the New York Jets Sideline, author Mark Cannizzaro takes readers on a journey, through his eyes and the eyes of the subjects he has covered, across the maze of musings, controversial happenstances, and occasional brilliance the Jets have displayed during the years he has followed the franchise including their consecutive AFC Championship Game losses in 2009 and 2010 and subsequent struggles, adding to the previous angst and tantalizing teases Jets fans have endured since Joe Willie's memorable triumph.
