Actually, Theismann was a very good QB whose career, like Riggo’s was not what it could have been. For instance, JT became a full-time starter in ‘78, his 7th year out of college (2 CFL). That was under the wide-open offense of former LB Jack Pardee (j/k, Pardee was quite conservative). For instance, during the 8-0 opening streak in 1978, in game 3 against STL (the Cards, for you kids), JT threw for 47 net yards (59 actual yds) although 2 throws were for TDs. Heck, he was 5 for 12. 12? And we won 28-10? Well, when Riggo, Mike Thomas, Clarence Harmon, and Reggie Haynes combine for almost 255 yds on the ground, why throw? After all, what did Woody Hayes say about passing? Oh, and btw, our receivers in the late 70’s were horrid – not just horrible, but horrid. Danny Buggs and Ricky Thompson anyone? Seriously, look at Skins WRs from 78 - 80 (yes, Monk came along in ‘80; he was a rookie moving from RB to WR). The WRs all 3 of those years are worse than any year under Snyder. Then, in 1981 when JT finally got some guys to throw to, and a line that could block, he threw for 3,500 yards – that was when 3500 yards was a big deal – you can’t say Art Monk should be viewed the prism of the handcuffed offenses of the 80’s without considering JT playing the “dead ball” era of the 70’s. Prorating out ‘82, he threw for 3,600 yds. In ‘83 and ‘84 he tossed 3,700 and 3,400 respectively. Yeah, he was a very good QB capable of playing great over extended stretches of time. He was a fiery leader and clutch. Watch the ‘82 SB NFL films episode. Guys are praising JT. If you had JT, you didn’t need to worry about the QB position.
