The 50th anniversary of Joe Namath and the New York Jets stunning the Baltimore Colts in Super Bowl III and changing professional football forever is Saturday, Jan. 12. There have been zero — BIG 0 — appearances in the Super Bowl since that 1969 day in Miami.

The Jets have been through a plethora of coaches while trying to win another championship. Former Miami Dolphins coach Adam Gase is next in line. Will he be more successful than most of his predecessors?
