The NY Jets open their season at home on Sunday against the Cleveland Browns. If you are going to the game I am sure you have started the process of checking out your tailgating gear. Make sure you power wash that Jets cooler so the green really shines. The propane tank needs to be full, otherwise go get a new bag of charcoal. Good luck with whatever you are cooking as well.
Here are a few additional updates related to the game day experience this season:
This was fun to watch as a fan. Personally I enjoyed it, seeing the players walk into the stadium. That said, I always wondered how much the players hated it. Getting on a bus and driving around the stadium to high five fans seems like it would be annoying if you were a player trying to get ready for a game. Things like that were acceptable under Rex Ryan, now that Todd Bowles is in town there is no more player walk.
