The Jets could stick with quarterback Sam Darnold in 2021, the final year of his rookie contract. That’s a possibility, now that they don’t pick first overall in the 2021 NFL Draft. The Jaguars will take Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence there.
Joe Montana (16 playoff wins, 7 losses) Montana won four Super Bowls and 16 playoffs games, illustrating he was just effective in the postseason as the regular. The former 49er was the greatest of all time before a certain Tom Brady came along. In part due his performances in the Super Bowls he won, collecting three Super Bowl MVP awards. Montana also went on a streak of 122 passes in the playoffs without an interception. A remarkable showing of accuracy and decision making under pressure. Emmitt Smith (17 playoff appearances) Smith is the only non-quarterback on the list, after all, the control and decision making required in the cauldron of playoff games falls heavily on the quarterback. However, Smith’s performances in the postseason are just too impressive to be ignored. Smith is the all-time leader for playoff yards with 1,586 yards. He also scored 19 touchdowns in the postseason, including five that were in Super Bowls. Putting the team on your back is far more difficult if you are not a quarterback, and yet Smith managed to do that time and time again.
This team has a bright future thanks to their hard work. I had a great conversation with Coach Saleh today and would like to welcome him and his family to the Jets family. I would like to thank my brother, Christopher, for leading the organization while I was away.
