Since conceptualizing the TJB Hall of Fame, we've always tried to recognize players from a variety of different eras - the Super Bowl team of the sixties, the dark dawn of the seventies, the resurgent days of the eighties. With this, thoroughly deserved and arguably long overdue induction, we can tick all these boxes. This Jet was around so long, he spanned a generation.

Guard Randy Rasmussen played for the Jets in three different decades and was the last of the Super Bowl champion 1968 Jets to hang up his cleats. For that whole time, he was a model of consistency, truly embodying the modern mantra of "Play Like a Jet" better than perhaps any player in team history.

Rasmussen was a Jet for 15 years and was a part of the team that won Super Bowl III and facilitated the AFL-NFL merger, but was also on the team that saw the advent of the Sack Exchange. He wore the classic uniforms, which the team returned to in 1998 and still wears to this day, but also wore the kelly green and white with the green helmet in the late seventies and early eighties. For many fans, he would be, simply, "Mr. Jet" and when he retired, there was talk that his number 66 jersey - currently worn by Willie Colon - should be retired.

He was a teammate of Snell, Grantham, Maynard and Mathis, but also a teammate of McNeil, Shuler, Gastineau and Klecko. He even has strong links to the current Jets regime as both Rex Ryan and John Idzik's fathers coached on teams he played for as a Jet.

As a rookie, back in 1967, Rasmussen would start every game at right guard as the Jets would finish 8-5-1 just one game out of first place behind the Houston Oilers in the AFL East. The Jets didn't start another rookie at right guard until 32 years later (Randy Thomas). It was a remarkable start to the career of an unheralded 12th round pick out of Nebraska-Kearney.

Ironically, his most triumphant moment came in the one season of his burgeoning career where he wasn't an ever-present constant. Despite Rasmussen starting all 14 games as a rookie, the Jets still took the opportunity to upgrade the position, signing three-time first team all-pro Bob Talamini, who had been an AFL all-star in each of the previous six seasons with the Oilers but was nearing the end of his career. This would relegate Rasmussen to the bench, limiting him to just seven starts during the regular season. However, when the Jets made an adjustment in the playoffs, shifting right guard Dave Herman out to tackle in place of rookie Sam Walton, this enabled Rasmussen to move back into the starting lineup.

Here's one for any trivia buffs out there: Rasmussen actually started the Super Bowl as an ineligible tight end, as the Jets made a pre-snap shift on the very first play, moving into an unbalanced line formation with Talamini shifting to right guard and Rasmussen moving to the outside of Winston Hill's right shoulder. The offensive line played a massive part in the Jets win, slowing down the formidable Colts' pass rush to protect Joe Namath and leading the way for Matt Snell to rush for 121 yards and a touchdown. Rasmussen certainly played his part in that, although he couldn't recall too much about it.

"That game was almost too much for me to comprehend, I think I woke up about a week later," he told the NY Times in 1982. "About all I remember was us running one play over and over, a play we called 19-Straight that had Matt Snell carrying to our left side. We kept running it because it kept working. But we thought it would. It's funny, we were such big underdogs yet we were so totally confident we were going to win."

Despite his confidence, he wasn't too enamored with Namath's famous decision to guarantee the Jets would win.

"I thought he was nuts when he said that," Rasmussen would tell the LA Times. "I thought he was crazy. We went down there (to Miami) the week before and one thing Weeb said was don't say anything in the paper to antagonize them. We know that we can beat them, but still let's not antagonize them. It all went well until Thursday."

Although he was against the guarantee, he would add, "You know, he didn't say anything we didn't really believe."

That belief helped spur the Jets to the biggest achievement in franchise history and was the crowning moment for many of the players on the team. However, for Rasmussen, his career was only just getting started.

Transitioning to left guard, he would go on to play in 207 games as a Jet, a number bettered only by placekicker Pat Leahy. His 198 starts are second in Jets history to Mo Lewis and his 144 consecutive games played are 5th best. For younger fans, it might put things in perspective to compare him to Brandon Moore, who could have bumped Rasmussen down to sixth on the consecutive games played list if he had stayed with the team for 2013. Moore has been a dependable mainstay with the Jets for a long time, but wasn't a regular starter until his third season and, to be honest, was often seen as a weak link during his first few years as a starter. Rasmussen not only was a dependable starter off the bat, but also lasted 15 years, 50% longer than Moore played with the Jets.

Although he was never elected to the Pro Bowl or won any major awards, this was partly due to the fact that he played at the same time as several Hall of Fame AFC guards (such as Jim Otto, Gene Upshaw and John Hannah). That didn't mean he wasn't highly respected. Ewbank called him "the most coachable player I've ever had" and, for years, all the way up to the end of his career, head coach Walt Michaels would refer to him as "the team's most consistent player". Paul (Dr. Z) Zimmerman of Sports Illustrated referred to him in 1979 as the "No. 1 guy in the NFL who has never been picked for anything" and the Hall of Famer Hannah told Sports Illustrated that Rasmussen was a guy he "tried to copy".

There were tough times for the organization in between the Super Bowl win and the team that finally emerged as a contender again in the early eighties. Namath struggled to stay healthy and often tried to do too much when he was able to play. The Jets' only postseason appearance in that interim period was a 13-6 loss to the Chiefs in the AFL divisional playoff the year after their Super Bowl success. Over a decade of disappointment would take its toll with Rasmussen describing the last game of 1975 as the "worst day of his career" because most of the rest of the team had basically given up on the season.

Rasmussen was not the type to quit though and it's a testament to his dedication that his performance and effort levels never wavered, even when the team was struggling. Rasmussen didn't make headlines very often, although he did score a touchdown on a fumble recovery in the end zone in a 1972 loss to Miami. That wouldn't happen again for a Jets offensive lineman until Matt Slauson did it in Denver over 39 years later.

They still had some successes, even in the post-Namath era. In 1978, the team was 3rd in the league in scoring with Matt Robinson starting 11 games. In 1979, despite the team's running back by committee philosophy, the line somehow managed to pave the way for the Jets to lead the league in rushing. The Jets achieved this over several teams with Hall of Fame running backs, while their best runners were Clark Gaines, Scott Dierking and Bruce Harper, none of whom were in the top ten in rushing.

Rasmussen showed his dedication after the 1980 season, where he suffered a serious knee injury and missed eight games. He undertook a lifting and conditioning regimen to restore his strength and quickness and improve the chances of extending his career. He would return to the starting lineup the following year and start 15 games.

In 1981, Rasmussen and the 10-5-1 Jets finally returned to the postseason, losing a heart-breaker to the Bills at Shea Stadium in the first round of the playoffs. This would, however, turn out to be his swan song.

Rasmussen, who turned 37 after the season, might have been able to play until he was 40, but opted to retire when the Jets told him Stan Waldemore would replace him in the starting lineup and they wanted him to be a backup. He was quick to point out that there was "no hard feelings" though and received a fitting tribute and a retirement ceremony from the Jets organization.

Although Rasmussen was someone who saw first-hand all the biggest moments in franchise history, that didn't stop after his career was over. In 1982 he was prepared to stick around just a phone call away in case the Jets needed reinforcements on the line. Waldemore would make it through the strike-shortened nine game season and the Jets would go on to reach the AFC conference title game without requiring Rasmussen's services. That wouldn't be the last time he closely oversaw what was going on with the Jets franchise as he moved onto a career as a radio broadcaster, working as a color commentator with Charley Steiner in 1987.

These days, Rasmussen's contributions to the Jets organization are often overlooked. We hope that selecting him for the TJB Hall of Fame goes some way towards addressing that injustice.

Congratulations to Randy Rasmussen, a great Jet, and welcome to the TJB Hall of Fame!

The Jets re-signed KR/WR Kalif Raymond to their practice squad after cutting him earlier in the week.

Raymond muffing a punt during the Jets' loss to the raiders in Oakland.

"He's got some tools to develop," coach Todd Bowles said on Thursday. "There are some things we like about him with his speed and catch radius as a receiver, so he's worth bringing back."

Bowles indicated Raymond would likely remain on the practice squad but added that there's still a chance he could make the active roster.

It's been a tough two weeks of the season for Jets linebacker Darron Lee, and head coach Todd Bowles wants to see more out of the second-year player. 

Standing at 6-foot-1 and 231 pounds, Lee has looked overmatched at times during the Jets' first two games this year. So far Lee has 12 tackles and one sack.

Jets defensive end Muhammad Wilkerson (bruised shoulder) did not participate in Wednesday's practice, but he believes he'll be ready to play against the Dolphins on Sunday. 

Wilkerson suffered the injury during last week's matchup in Oakland, but does not think the bruise is too serious. Head coach Todd Bowles also said he doesn't believe the injury will keep Wilkerson out of action.

Christopher Johnson, the Jets' acting owner as his brother Woody Johnson serves as Ambassador to the United Kingdom under President Donald Trump, says the team isn't tanking.

"It couldn't be further from the truth," Johnson told reporters on Wednesday. "I want to win every game. Every player in that locker room wants to win. What you're seeing, I think, are growing pains. These are young guys. There are some older guys on the team. Some of them, they're doing an extraordinary job. But I think you're going to see this team get better and better and better. That's what I'm looking for. And we are definitely not tanking."

The Jets, who have started the season 0-2 and are expected to have one ot the worst records in the NFL this season, trimmed the roster of the majority of their veterans during the offseason.

The Jets defense may have allowed 45 points to the Raiders this past Sunday, but they are not embarrassed as they believe the unit as taken positive steps forward.

Kearse and another Jets newcomer, QB Josh McCown, have found chemistry early this season. McCown found the 27-year-old seven times for 59 yards in the season opener against the Bills. 

Bent, theJetsBlog.com Follow on TwitterKearse continued his strong start as a Jet by leading them with 64 yards on four catches, including two touchdowns. He showed some veteran smarts with a subtle push-off on the first touchdown and made a tough catch with a defender draped over him for his other score. However, his other three catches -- one of which was negated by a penalty -- were short of the first down marker. >> Read more about the receivers and the Jets' offensive performance in Bent's Game Analysis.

Jets QB Josh McCown threw for his first touchdowns as a Jet in the team's 45-20 loss to the Oakland Raiders on Sunday. 

McCown was held without a passing touchdown in the season opener against the Bills, but he made up for it with two in Oakland. However, it wouldn't be enough as the Raiders racked up points in front of their hometown fans. 

Bent, theJetsBlog.com Follow on TwitterOn paper, McCown had a very good game. He came away with two touchdown passes and a 113.1 quarterback rating and even contributed 31 yards on the ground. However, there were a series of mistakes that are not reflected in his passing numbers...

Jets linebacker Jordan Jenkins was not happy with how Raiders RB Marshawn Lynch danced during Sunday's 45-20 loss to the Oakland Raiders at Oakland Coliseum.

Jenkins, who was upset at the way the Jets lost, didn't like seeing Lynch dancing and celebrating on the sideline after Oakland took a 35-13 lead on Jalen Richard's 52-yard touchdown run.

"I'm an old-school guy," Jenkins said, according to NJ.com's Darryl Slater. "I don't like when things like that happen. That was embarrassing, losing like that, and to have Marshawn dancing like that. Seeing that happen, that should infuriate the whole [Jets] team. It should infuriate everybody. And we should have to have a good response coming into next Sunday."

The Jets are not a good football team, so when they have an opportunity -- any opportunity -- they have to take advantage.

That's why what happened at the end of the first half of Sunday's 45-20 loss was so catastrophic to their chances on Sunday in Oakland. Forget the final score. Forget that this game turned into a blowout. And forget all the reasons why the Raiders deserved to win this game big.

Bryce Petty will be the New York Jets' No. 2 quarterback for the near future, head coach Todd Bowles said after Sunday's 45-20 loss to the Oakland Raiders at Oakland Coliseum.

Bowles did not initially name a backup quarterback to Josh McCown. Although Petty was listed second on the depth chart prior to the season, he was inactive for New York's Week 1 loss to the Buffalo Bills due to a sprained MCL.

Christian Hackenberg, the Jets' 2016 second-round pick, was listed as inactive for Sunday's game.
