Best: New York Jets – Joe Namath
New York Jets’ fans probably won’t like hearing this, but the facts shall set you free: the Jets franchise doesn’t have a single player among the top 60 quarterbacks in all time passing yardage. By comparison, guys like Jake Plummer and Andy Dalton have thrown for more yards than any quarterback in franchise history. So, almost by default, this designation would have go to “Broadway” Joe Namath.
Though Namath finished his career with a losing record and threw 45 more interceptions than touchdowns during his 13-year NFL career, he still has the most wins, passing yards, and touchdown passes in team history. And, of course, he was the Super Bowl MVP of the Jets’ lone Super Bowl appearance (and win).
Worst: New York Jets – Browning Nagle
Former University of Louisville quarterback Browning Nagle will forever go down in infamy if for nothing else but one fact — that he was selected exactly one pick before a rifle-armed kid from the University of Southern Mississippi named Brett Favre.
Nagle really only played one true season with the New York Jets after being drafted in 1991. In 1992, Nagle won only three of the 13 starts he made, throwing 17 interceptions.
