(Pittsburgh 63-67, Cleveland 68-72)
Who's Bill Nelsen you ask? Not very well known, I suppose, but to me he's one of those guys who could have been great. Injuries plauged his career though. In Pittsburgh, things were often dismal for him. His first year as the starter the team went 2-12. In 66, Nelson suffered a knee injury that kept him out part of the year, but in 111 attempts he threw just one pick, and had a 107.8 QB rating. In 69 with cleveland, he led them to the playoffs and went to the pro bowl. Also during that year, Nelsen would throw 5 TD passes against a once undefeated Cowboys team. Nelsen would get off to a great start in '71, but another injury knocked him out again. He would retire after the next season. During his career he underwent 5 knee operations. I know I probably shouldnt have put him this high, since i based it more on the potential his career had, rather than what he actually did, but Im mostly doing this for fun anyway!
