    Good point and let's not forget the #1 draft in 1965 when the Jets drafted a QB who guaranteed a victory then backed it up with an MVP performance to win Super Bowl III on January 12, 1969, he was also elected to the HOF in 1985

    Good example - NE Patriots, 2000.

    Adrian Klemm, JR Redmond, and a bunch of other guys who were out of football within 4 years. And some guy named Tom Brady.

    Did you see that Dee Milliner was named Defensive Rookie of the Month? Not a month at the beginning of the season, but the last month of the season.

    And how about 7 TDs and 2 INTs with a 80+ QB Rating over the final 4 games for Geno Smith? 3 of those 4 being wins.
    Irrelevant. They weren't Pro Bowlers from the first snap of pre-season, so they'll suck for all eternity.

    Another thread on this board was still harking back to one play from 2011 to "prove" that one of our CB's is a complete bust. Sheesh.

    Whether it's the best or not it's certainly a very encouraging start to the Idzik era!
