    what... we're not allowed a little hyperbole?

    and he was really brought down from behind at the 2 inch line, not the one inch line.

    Other than Leon, I can't think of any Jet back post-Freeman that was just a flat out speed demon. Heck I'm even racking my brain to remember any runs that Freeman & Hector had where he just left everyone in the dust a la Dickerson (any help with this would be greatly appreciated). Seems like the Jets love mid-size tailbacks who's speed rating would top out at 7.5/10.

    Really liked Johnny Hector. Very good back.

    Not so much in late December 85 when his fumble was

    returned by a Patriot linebacker for a TD.

    First ever playoff game in the Meadowlands and we lose.

    Was at the game. Could not believe he was caught. Definitely hard to forget that one.

    And that's my best memory of Johnny Johnson.
