    Thing is he was an 8th round pick or so - and I believe he holds the record for QB winning % as a starter in team history. Shula was brilliant when we had Woodley in manufacturing wins around his D and run game while maximizing his athletic QBs skills (remember him catching a TD from Nathan or Vigorito?) vs the Jets? Using Strock in spot duty to spark the O. While he had no business being an NFL QB, he wound up in a great situation where he was eased in w Griese still on the team and then punted out once Marino got on the field. RIP David Woodley. Very sad story and I guess I’ll always have a soft spot for him because I think the big stage he managed to play on actually made his undiagnosed anxiety situation worse.

    Yeah, the Skins game hurt for...still hurts actually when you see replays from it. The miners game - well, easier to swallow as you said. Just out classed.

    That’s it - he got there. Can’t knock him too hard and he did win 3 playoff games to get in.
