One of my favorite Jets! Amazing how much better the offensive line looked when he played instead of O'Brien.

Very capable backup. Not one of the top 5 Jet QBs but it’s kind of a short list.

It was a different era, teams had good long term backups without free agency. In today's NFL he would have been signed by another team to start.  

It's too bad Pat got hurt in Cleveland in the '86 playoffs, I think we would have won that game and who knows what happens after that (we probably lose in Denver but would have at least had a shot)
