Thread: For all of us old timers, some of these names are hilarious

    Christ what a depressing slideshow. I love my team but damn we have had some absolute garbage at the QB position. Ever notice though the the Jets have also been cursed by some bad injury luck at this position? Namath with his many injuries after SB III, Vinny's achilles heel, Chad's hand and shoulder, Favre's tricep, hell even Pat Ryan's injury in the Cleveland playoff game (OB could not get the dam team moving after the Freeman TD). We always seem to get a QB injury at the worst damn times. I'm praying for Geno to stay healthy.

    No Sh!t! My next tarajersey for sure. So sorry for my historical ignorance but was he the first Jet's QB, previous being Titans or just the first in the slide show?

    Ok, I can google, his nickname makes it even better:

    Malcolm Richard "Big Dick" Wood (born February 29, 1936 in Lanett, Alabama) is a former American football quarterback who played at Auburn before being drafted by the NFL Baltimore Colts in 1959. He never played for the Colts, and signed with the American Football League's Denver Broncos as a free agent in 1962.
    Dick played for five different AFL teams during his football career,[1] the only player to do so.
    Miscellany[edit]

    Dick Wood was the first quarterback to throw for a touchdown at Shea Stadium [2]
    He completed 522 career passes for 51 touchdowns and 71 interceptions.[1]
    In 1966, his only season with the Miami Dolphins, Wood posted the then-worst all-time completion percentage for a season (minimum 200 attempts),[3] surpassed only by Gary Marangi of the 1976 Buffalo Bills.

    And yes, he was the first Jets QB with the Titan QBs being:

    Talking Stats don't tell the greatness for the older players

I could go on but young fans just look at stats they never saw the players play..
    That is SO TRUE. The game has changed so much since the 1960's - 70's... WR's were basically mugged by DB's, many teams ran more than passed;
    scores were generally lower and obviously the passing numbers were much reduced. Still, you had to see Gale Sayers swivel thru tacklers; same with Jon Arnett,
    and Hugh McEllhenny. Never saw Lance Alworth drop a pass, even though he never wore gloves. Players only played 12 or 14 game seasons, so their annual stats seem lower, than
    the 2013 Offense minded game.

    He is also the first QB we had to have a winning record.

    I can still see Al Woodall just standing back in the pocket, standing, staring, looking, then blam! Throw it away, Al!! Ken OB was Marino in the pocket compared to Al.

    Brett Farve 22 TDs and 22 INTs. Similar to Geno's present ratio.

    I think Bob Davis may be most remembered for the game he started at Shea in 1971 against SF - where he got injured while the Jets were down like 3 TDs and Namath came off the bench and nearly pulled off the come-from-behind win.
