Workout[edit]

Removed the last sentence regarding Testaverde's tryouts with the Patriots, as it is not NPOV and uncitated. Unless that was from a quote, it has no business being in a NPOV article. Besides, in the modern business of pro football, it is unlikely a player would not accept an offer just because he played in the same division for x-amount of years. But I have removed it pending an actual citated quote.

2nd stint with Jets[edit]

The article implies that Testerverde was dropped as a result of poor performances. Although he certainly had a disatrous first game, I'm pretty sure it was a calf injury that ruled him out for the remainder of the season.

Bad Math...[edit]

The math on Vinny's total career TD's and INT's don't add up correctly... the real #'s are on pro-football-reference.com. I'm honestly just too lazy to change it myself rgt now. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 98.169.30.211 (talk) 07:57, 13 February 2009 (UTC)

AFC Championship[edit]

In the Preview part it says that Vinny "has twice appeared in an AFC Championship game. (1998 with the Jets, and 2006 with the Patriots)".Okay it's true but I just don't see why to mention the '06 AFC Championship if he didn't even throw a pass in the game, he was just a backup.I'm removing it because I don't think this information it's really relevant.

Needs references! Also could use a better lead and some prose tuneup. Good foundation though. --Wizardman 03:40, 2 January 2007 (UTC)
