False story[edit]

The bio says, "Following his senior year, he was drafted by the Boston Red Sox as a pitcher." Baseball-reference.com shows all draft picks, and no one named Browning Nagle was drafted by the Boston Red Sox in 1986 or in any other year, and no one named Browning Nagle was ever drafted by any other team in any year. Additionally, the claim that Nagle was picked by the Red Sox is unattributed to any source.

The Red Sox thing is in his bio everywhere. The best I can find is an article from 1991 that says that he "was a draft choice" which may not mean he was drafted. [1] He does show up as a 1991 draft pick by the California Angels [2] Jonadair (talk) 03:50, 11 June 2016 (UTC)

funny[edit]

I thought this story I came across was funny: [1]. In 1983 Browning would have been what, 14 or 15? I don't think he even lived in Florida yet.

unfair to BN[edit]

"His tenure with the Jets was defined by his unshakable habit of rifling screen passes and dump-offs as hard as he could."

This is an obvious attempt to put down BN by trying to make his famous arm strength a negative. BN was coached by Bruce Coslet, one of the worst coaches in the history of the NFL. Browning Nagle, Blair Thomas, and many other promising players may well have panned out had they not had to deal with the bizarrely undeserved megalomania of Bruce Coslet. I don't think Browning deserves to be the victim of childish humor as he did the best he could for a coach who appeared to be mentally troubled. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 71.106.177.51 (talk) 10:01, 10 November 2007 (UTC)

very true, Browning nagle had one of the most promising futures going into the NFL and wouldve have probably been the Brett Favre of today if the falcons hadnt have changed their minds about drafting Brett instead of Browning, —Preceding unsigned comment added by 67.107.184.86 (talk) 16:38, 23 September 2010 (UTC)
