O'Brien definitely had some great, great games.
It's a long time ago and looking back, I can't quite remember why he was never able to get over the hump personally or with the Jets.
I wish we could see a pro passing game like this again!
A passing game that goes for the Win!
Ken O'Brien would have been a stud if it wasn't for the shlt line he had in front of him.
Walton + Kotite > Parcells + Belichick
Imagine if we had ANY coaching.
The O'Brien era yielded 3 playoff appearances and 1 win, and that game Pat Ryan started and played. Once O'Brien got in vs. Cleveland the offense looked horrible, and until a brief revitalization under Coslet, his career never again approached that hot first half of 1986. Predictably, that was also the beginning of the dark ages until Parcells comes around. I'll give him his credit for game 16 in 1991 and going throw for throw with Moon the following week in the Astrodome (Moon himself left much to be desired in the playoffs), but I fail to see anything great in any sense of the word (aside from some amazingly thrown deep balls) regarding the O'Brien era.
Does anyone know where to find a Kenny O. Jersey? I've been searching for weeks with no luck.
I always liked that helmet design.alot more green. Jets should change back to that design.
This game may have also been the last time the Jets had three timeouts at the two minute warning.
You people make me laugh how you re-invent history. Truth be known he had a great arm but was not a very good QB.
Also Kenny was a nice person no doubt, but for the folks out here to compare him to Marino is silly. It reminds me of those 100 page threads with posters out here saying Chad was better than Brady......
I always put it up to the fact that we Jets have short and forgiving memories...:P
I would give Sanchez's right arm for a passing combo like this!
This passing combo works too!
