    Ranking Every Jet QB to Start a Game Since Namath

    I thought this was really interesting, especially learning about the many QB's from when I was too young to understand football.

    Also puts our current QB situation into perspective.

    Here's the top 10 per the article below...

    Popping up a link from Bleacher Report is lazy... The site sucks... Slideshows suck...

    The topic is interesting enough...

    With that said, let the Pennington love/hate commence...


    10) Lucas
    9) O'Donnell
    8) Ryan
    7) Favre
    6) Esiason
    5) Sanchez
    4) Todd
    3) O'Brien
    2) Pennington
    1) Testaverde

    Disagree completely...
    First of all it's important to note the circumstances that each QB was thrust into the starting role.

    Second, it is interesting to see how many games each QB started and the stats they accumulated, especially to note how many QB's we have had in our history that started less than 10 games.

    Third, what I find most interesting is the bottom half of the list, NOT the top ten of which every member knows/remembers each QB.

    Finally, boiling down that list of 25 QB's and all that info down to a simple "top ten" list is lazy, over simplistic, and ignores over half of the content on the discussion.

    This is a Jets message board, not ESPN's Top 10 plays. Everything doesn't have to be condensed into easy to understand quick bites for mouth-breathers, it's the offseason and we are devoid of interesting topics.

    Matt Robinson over Lucas and O'Donnell, and even Favre.

    Is this "as a Jet" or can we take into account their careers?

    If it is the latter then Favre is easily at the top.

    Only considers the work done as a Jet or you would be correct.

    Not exactly Murderers Row there, is it?

    Farve, Carter, and Lucas should be higher IMO. Richard Todd at 4? Not sure I get that at all. Carter was actually a very good QB he had other issues that made him a bench warmer.

    Kellen Clemens at 12? The same Kellen Clemens who trips over his own two feet when making a simple 3 step drop back? That's when you know it's been bad...

    The list is awful. How is Favre 7th? Rick Mirer 14th? He didn't win a single game and yet he's above Brooks Bollinger? Bleacher Report strikes again.

    I wonder if there is any correlation from that list to the Jets performance on the field the last 42 years?

    could you at least attempt to pretend to make an effort to show that you're not just trolling for the sake of trolling?

    Crazy thing is, I'd take Tom Tupa as my QB ahead of 3/4's of the list.

    Second, it is interesting to see how many games each QB started and the stats they accumulated, especially to note how many QB's we have had in our history that started less than 10 games.
    Every fan of the team knows we've had a Bearsesque situation at QB for decades...

    Third, what I find most interesting is the bottom half of the list, NOT the top ten of which every member knows/remembers each QB.
    I don't really find it interesting how many scrub QB's have started a handful of games... To each his own though...

    Finally, boiling down that list of 25 QB's and all that info down to a simple "top ten" list is lazy, over simplistic, and ignores over half of the content on the discussion.
    Not really... It boils it down to the QB's I felt should be discussed... That was my opinion, as you're entitled to yours... They were the only ones with merit, in my eyes...

    This is a Jets message board, not ESPN's Top 10 plays. Everything doesn't have to be condensed into easy to understand quick bites for mouth-breathers, it's the offseason and we are devoid of interesting topics.
    I gave a portion of the content some kudos... It was interesting how crappy the top 10 QB's the Jets have had since Namath is...

    The rest aren't worth discussing, again, in my opinion...

    Normally Bleacher Report threads are dumped... Just be glad yours has lasted this long...

    I still think I'd rank Chad ahead of Vinny.

    Vinny led comebacks... some of the franchise's best. Chad was great with a lead but when we were down, we were done.

    Vinny gets the nod by this fact alone, imo.
