    Remember when some people on this board thought Simms was an NFL caliber QB who could be the Jets starting/franchise QB. Yeesh

    Some people also thought Elijah McGuire was going to be our starting RB of the future after last season. It's amazing what a talent upgrade does to perspective.

    Rex actually started McElroy at QB once or twice.

    Nobody thought he was an NFL caliber. He had a good throwing arm. That's about it.

    Brett Ratliff was the guy who got people excited.

    Man you guys are hard to impress. Sure, he’s not the best QB on the falcons, and he’s not the best QB named Matt on the Falcons, and he’s not one of the top two quarterbacks named Matt on the falcons, but is he a top 3 QB named Matt on the falcons? Absolutely!

    That's nothing. I believed in Brooks Bollinger once.

    We could never forget Bryce Petty.. Shitty young QB playing behind the worst OLine in the league at the time. :)

    There were a couple, or maybe just 1, really hardcore Petty supporters at the time.

    You guys aren't asking the important question: Can they kick field goals?

    Browning Nagel!!!!! Glen Foley!!!! Geno Smith ( after MNF Atlanta). Simms never got to that level, I always thought it was about his last name. Love his brother on the Florio show, the rest of the family can just go away

    I remember when Walt Michaels thought Matt Robinson was going to be the Jets savior.
