    I think Tony Paige, then Baxter in 89

    I think the aforementioned Roger Vick was FB between Paige in the mid-80s and Baxter.

    Well he is only the second person that I know that did not like JH. Joe Walton was the other.

    I was a fan of Hector. That offense was fun to watch.

    Definitely one of the all-time good Jets.

    I guess I must be in the minority...

    5th leading rusher, 3rd in rushing TDs despite never really being the number 1 guy. Plus, he was just fun to watch.

    Hector was very very good as a #2 back.

    Watch the first highlight shown in the following clip. That's the lasting memory we both share of Hector. I was definitely a fan of his.

    I hate to call someone out, but seriously. I really want more of an explanation, this is like someone saying they hated Mickey Shuler or Richie Anderson. I know lots of Jets fans, young and old, who hate all kinds of random Jets, but I don't tihnk I know of anyone who didn't think Johnny Hector was good, and no one who thought he was "awful"

    Johnny Mitchell

    Johnny Johnson


    Giving you a couple more ways out here.

    I think it was a mistake in identity. Like you, I never heard anyone say a bad word about Hector.

    Or if you want to pull a similar type idea from the same era... Pat Ryan... Really good backup. Solid performer. probably not every week starter material but he new his job, kept his nose clean and put in some really nice games for us when called upon to do so.

    Johnny Hector. If he was so smart how come he has two first names?

    I liked Johnny Johnson. He put in solid work for us after some really lean years at RB.

    Will never forget Johnson's 99.9 yard run, in which he was tackled from behind at the one inch line.

    Oh... and the Jets did not score a TD on that drive.

    Only the on the Jets.

    Adrian Murrell had a habit of getting caught from behind like that after a long run. Thay both had take it to the house minus one yard speed.
