The NY Jets have struggled to find an answer for the quarterback position over the last few decades. The hope is that the newly-acquired Aaron Rodgers will finally solve the team's QB woes, but that, of course, remains to be seen.

Not since the great Joe Namath have the Jets had a quarterback that can consistently help them win games. This organization has cycled through failed quarterback after failed quarterback in search of their next savior.

Just in the last 33 years, the Jets have had a whopping 29 different quarterbacks start at least one game. We thought it might be fun to look back and rank each of those QBs, solely based on their performance with the Jets since 1990.

Also, it's June. What else are we going to talk about? Let's dive in.

29. Trevor Siemian, QB, NY Jets

I genuinely feel bad putting Trevor Siemian here, as he's far from the worst quarterback on this list. Unfortunately, his brief Jets career is what lands him at this unappealing spot.

Siemian was thrust into action for one game in 2019, with Sam Darnold out with a case of mononucleosis. He completed just three passes for six yards before suffering a fractured ankle courtesy of Myles Garrett in the first half.

Thus was the story of Trevor Siemian's Jets career. It was brief, unspectacular, and well deserving of the last-place spot on this list.

28. Luke Falk, QB, NY Jets

The individual who took over for Siemian was none other than Luke Falk, who was signed off the team's practice squad just a few days prior. Falk was forced to make two starts after his first appearance, and neither went well.

Falk finished his Jets (and NFL) career with zero touchdowns and three interceptions on a lackluster 5.7 yards per attempt. Not that it needs to be said, but the Jets didn't win any of the three games Falk played. They scored just 23 points combined over those three weeks.

This was a dark era for the Jets.
