Who Is the Most "Jetsy" Person/Player In Jets' History?

I raised this question in the "What is the most embarrassing moment in Jets' history?" post.  There were some great responses so I figured I'd give this its own post.  This is all part of my "relish the pain" approach in trying to change the karma on Jets' history.

Some names that came up in that other post were:

Chad Pennington

Rex Ryan

Richard Todd

Hmmm... 

Jetsy in a good way.  Namath.  

Jetsy in a bad way ??? Well, Chad, Rex and Todd all had some great moments.  I liked all three of them.  Even  Sanchez of butt fumble fame had a lot of good moments. The comebacks, decent play in the playoff games, etc...

To be Jetsy in a bad way, you need to be able to clearly identify that player with the Jets and that player also needs to have made a big splash followed by an embarrassing face plant. 

I'd say some good candidates would be: Dwayne Robertson & Johnny Mitchell.   Blair Thomas and Gholston were also notable flops, but neither had the self promoting mouth that Robertson and Mitchell had.   If you fail quietly, it is not very Jetsy.  If you run your mouth, fail and look like a total ass, they you've reached the apex of Jettitude.

I am going to go with a more obscure reference.  Reggie Rembert.  

A guy who never played for the Jets. Jets drafted him with the 3rd pick in the 2nd round of the 1990 draft.  Rembert and his agent felt he was a first round talent, so he held out for first round money.  With Rembert holding out, we selected Rob Moore in the supplemental draft, surrendering our R1 pick in 1991.  Rembert's hold out likely cost us Brett Favre in the 91 draft.  Instead we shipped Rember out to Cincinnati for a couple of OL, drafted Moore and watched as Atlanta picked Favre one pick ahead of us.
