WEEB EWBANK

Head Coach/General Manager

The now-legendary man who led the Jets on a six-year odyssey to their historic victory cannot be disputed as one of the game's best coaches, but he sometimes found that his duties as General Manager got in the way of forging more positive relationships with some of his players.

"SONNY" WERBLIN

Principal Owner

The man who scooped the Jets out of languishing obscurity as the New York Titans, Werblin's determination to have a championship team made their ultimate Super Bowl III victory possible...even if he couldn't be part of the organization when it happened.
