As much as I usually find Bleacher Report articles as amateurish, fan-boyish and often simple-minded, this list was a bit of an eye opener. Being too young to remember some of them (being born in 1974, my earliest memories as a Jets fan starts when Richard Todd was the starter), it was a good way to recap and bring back faded memories of some. Some of them my mind blocked out... like Bubby Brister, who I seem to remember being worse than even Mirer (Mirer's tenure just hurt more because of the Super Bowl caliber potential around him and how Lucas got hot but fell short due to Mirer's extended poor play while Brister was during the dark Kotite era where everything was bad).
It also goes to show how Jet QBs get run out of town at the slightest bit of adversity. The better ones were given more time, but still got run out of town with the possible exception of Vinny (age caught up) and Penny (injuries and trade).

Like the Pats QBs didn't stink before Brady and Bledsoe before him? How's that list looking? Stability at QB is the best way to keep sustained success. Being arrogant about having good fortune at QB is asinine. Pats did no better (in fact, they were worse), before 1993.
