The Vikings went 2-8 in Tarkenton's 10 starts in 1961, though it was the beginning of a Hall of Fame career that saw Tarkenton lead Minnesota to three Super Bowls (all losses) and retire as the league's all-time leader in passing attempts, completions, yards and touchdowns. Hey, that's incredible. Or so we hear.
Week 1: Kelly was a ''rookie'' in name only when he arrived in Buffalo in 1986 after the Donald Trump-led USFL shuttered. He torched the New York Jets for 292 yards and three touchdowns. The nfl vintage jerseys Bills lost 28-24, but Kelly's performance served notice the nfl soccer jerseys sad-sack Bills were headed back toward respectability after years adrift.
Week 2: On the road in Cincinnati cheap nfl jerseys china wholesale against a pretty good Bengals team, Kelly hit 13 of 22 for 228 yards with a score and two picks, and Buffalo fell in overtime.The Bills went 4-12 in 1986, with seven of the losses nfl wholesale china coming by seven points or fewer. Two years later Buffalo was rolling cheap wholesale nfl jerseys china behind the ''K-Gun'' offense and the Bills were playoff fixtures on their way to becoming perennial Super Bowl runners-up. Like Tarkenton, the lack of a Super Bowl win didn't keep Kelly out of the Hall of Fame.
Week 1: The 1963 Heisman Trophy winner walked out of five years of naval service and where are nfl jerseys made straight into the Cowboys' huddle for the 1969 opener against the St. Louis Cardinals (football, not baseball. Yes, there was such a thing). Staubach hit Lance Rentzel for a 75-yard score in the first quarter and finished 7 of 15 for 228 yards while adding a touchdown on the ground in a 24-3 win.
Week 2: Apparently Dallas coach Tom Landry was unimpressed. Staubach didn't start another game the rest of the season after ceding the job to veteran Craig Morton.
