Hurricane Sally hit 16 years after Ivan, at the same spot Heres why Trader Joe’s employees are so peppy Joe Torre has hilarious post about wearing a mask

The subject of wearing a mask has become a heated one this year, but Joe Torre disarmed plenty with a funny tweet on the topic.

The former New York Yankees and Los Angeles Dodgers manager shared a photo on Twitter Wednesday of himself with a mask covering his face. Torre joked that if he can fit his mask over his large nose, nobody has an excuse for not wearing one.

People can continue to argue about the efficacy and rules surrounding masks, but most can agree that self-effacing humor is a big winner.

Now 80, Torre won an MVP award as a player and four World Series as the manager of the New York Yankees. He has worked for the commissioner’s office since 2011.

And if you’re looking for more on the masks subject, you can turn to Kerri Walsh.

Full screen 1/31 SLIDES © Bettmann/Getty Images Who has the most home runs in a season for every MLB franchise? Has the home run been diminished by the fact the ball seems to fly out of the park these days? Perhaps a little, but we still love the long ball. We know who has the greatest home run seasons in MLB history, but every franchise has a single-season record for homers as well. That’s just math. Who is the slugger with the most dingers in a year for every team? Here they are, in alphabetical order based on team city. 2/31 SLIDES © Jed Jacobsohn/Getty Images Arizona Diamondbacks: Luis Gonzalez 2001 was a magical year for the Diamondbacks. Not only did they win the World Series over the Yankees, but Gonzalez also had a career season. Shockingly, the 33-year-old hit 57 homers after never hitting more than 31 in any of his other campaigns. Of course since this was 2001, some are skeptical in hindsight. We’re not here to pass judgment. 3/31 SLIDES © Brian Bahr/Getty Images Atlanta Braves: Andruw Jones Jones should be a Hall of Famer. He made his MLB debut as a teenager and quickly became the best center fielder in baseball. Eventually he would bulk up a bit and become a slugger as well. Jones hit 51 homers in 2005. When you can do that one year and win a Gold Glove the next, you should be knocking on the door of Cooperstown. 4/31 SLIDES © Will Newton/Getty Images Baltimore Orioles: Chris Davis How quickly things can change. In 2013, Davis hit 53 homers to lead the majors. He did it again with 47 in 2015. Now? He’s arguably the worst hitter in baseball. Davis batted a combined .172 between the 2018 and 2019 seasons, and even set a record for consecutive at-bats without a hit. Slideshow continues on the next slide 5/31 SLIDES © Ron Vesely/MLB via Getty Images Boston Red Sox: David Ortiz There’s a reason Big Papi is loved in Boston. After the Twins gave up on him, the Red Sox picked up Ortiz, and he turned himself into maybe the best designated hitter in baseball history (give or take an Edgar Martinez). His peak came in 2006 when he hit 54 homers to lead the American League. Unsurprisingly, he also led the league in RBI that year. 6/31 SLIDES © Focus on Sport/Getty Images Chicago Cubs: Sammy Sosa Oh, to put up 66 homers in a season and be an afterthought. That’s what happened to Sosa in 1998. Only two men have ever hit more home runs than Sosa in a year, but one of those guys did it the same year the Cubs slugger hit his 66 jacks. Well, at least he still has the single-season record for a storied franchise. 7/31 SLIDES © Focus on Sport/Getty Images Chicago White Sox: Albert Belle We get to the first team without a 50-homer season in its history. Pick up the slack, White Sox! Funnily enough, it was also 1998 when Belle set the "other" Chicago team’s franchise record. He couldn’t quite hit 66 homers though, settling for “only” 49. 8/31 SLIDES © Focus on Sport/Getty Images Cincinnati Reds: George Foster Who? You may not recognize the name, on account of the fact he isn’t a particularly famous player and also because he retired in 1986. It was in 1977 that Foster not only hit 52 home runs but also won the NL MVP. Alas, he was overshadowed by a few of his teammates on Cincinnati’s Big Red Machine. 9/31 SLIDES © Focus on Sport/Getty Images Cleveland Indians: Jim Thome Thome had a reputation for being “country strong.” Maybe that’s because he wasn’t cut or muscular but instead seemed like a big slab of man. Despite not being the pinnacle of fitness, you can’t deny the power in Thome’s bat. He racked up a ton of homers in his career, including 52 in 2002. Slideshow continues on the next slide 10/31 SLIDES © Rich Pilling/MLB via Getty Images Colorado Rockies: Larry Walker and Todd Helton Yes, we have a tie in Colorado. In fact, it’s the only tie among MLB’s 30 franchises. Walker hit 49 homers in 1997. Helton did it in 2001. Yes, despite the thin air at Coors Field, no Rockie has a 50-homer season. 11/31 SLIDES © Mark Rucker/Transcendental Graphics, Getty Images Detroit Tigers: Hank Greenberg We’re kicking it old-school here! Greenberg was a slugger at a time when guys who could mash the ball were few and far between. The Hall of Famer had a somewhat brief career, as he missed three seasons for military service. However, he still managed to lead the American League in homers four times, including in 1938 when he hit a whopping 58. That’s a ton even now. 12/31 SLIDES © Ronald Martinez/Getty Images Houston Astros: Jeff Bagwell Apparently sign stealing didn’t help any Astros set a new franchise record for homers. Instead, famed Houston slugger Bagwell, forever remembered for his funky stance, has held the record since way back in 2000. He hit 47 dingers in the heyday of the “Killer B’s.” 13/31 SLIDES © Denny Medley/USA TODAY Sports Kansas City Royals: Jorge Soler Soler was considered one of the best prospects in baseball out of Cuba, but he couldn't stay healthy with the Cubs. Prior to 2019, he had never played more than 101 games in a season. In 2019, he played a full 162 game season and hit 48 homers. 14/31 SLIDES © Lisa Blumenfeld/Getty Images Los Angeles Angels: Troy Glaus Nope, it’s not Mike Trout. It isn’t even Vlad Guerrero. Instead, it’s the largely forgotten Glaus who has the record for the Angels. In 2000 Glaus smacked 47 homers for Anaheim. Given the era, some may view that with skepticism. Well we have news for you. A lot of these records were set between 1998 and 2002. Slideshow continues on the next slide 15/31 SLIDES © Jed Jacobsohn/Getty Images Los Angeles Dodgers: Shawn Green So many great players have worn Dodger blue, but it’s Green who hit more homers in a season than any of them. Not that Green was a slouch as a player. He had a solid career, but he made only two All-Star Games. Weirdly that doesn’t include 2001 when he set a Dodgers record with 49 homers. 16/31 SLIDES © Steve Mitchell/USA TODAY Sports Miami Marlins: Giancarlo Stanton So many great players have spent parts of their careers in Miami, but they all end up moving on. Stanton is one of them. He hit 59 homers in 2017 and won the NL MVP. That offseason he was traded to the Yankees. And they wonder why there are attendance problems in Miami. 17/31 SLIDES © Jonathan Daniel/Getty Images Milwaukee Brewers: Prince Fielder His father, Cecil, was quite the slugger, but Prince may have been even better at his peak. In only his second full season in the league, 2007, Fielder hit 50 homers, which ended up being a personal best. Unfortunately injuries ended Prince’s career early, as he last played in the majors when he was only 32. 18/31 SLIDES © Focus on Sport via Getty Images Minnesota Twins: Harmon Killebrew The Twins set a new record for most home runs as a team in 2019, but no individual player hit more than Killebrew. The man rumored to be the source of the silhouette in the MLB logo was a tremendous slugger, leading the AL in homers six times. He hit 49 home runs twice in his career, so he in a way is tied with himself for the record in Minnesota. Killebrew did it the first time in 1964 and then again in 1969. 19/31 SLIDES © Brad Penner/USA TODAY Sports New York Mets: Pete Alonso You know in what season this happened. After all, Alonso was a rookie in 2019. Yes, he stepped into the majors and immediately hit 53 homers. Naturally, he won Rookie of the Year. He hit more homers than any other rookie in baseball history. Of course he did. 20/31 SLIDES © Focus on Sport/Getty Images New York Yankees: Roger Maris While Maris’ 61 homers have been passed a few times now, his 1961 season is still the stuff of legend. For years, Babe Ruth, a fellow Yankee, had the record with 60 homers. Then, Maris bested it to set a new major league record. Since he played in more games, though, some wanted to put an asterisk on Maris’ 61 homers. Then there are those who still say he has the record, but we aren’t going to debate. 21/31 SLIDES © MLB via Getty Images Oakland Athletics: Jimmie Foxx This is the oldest season on the list. In fact, it was so long ago the Athletics were still in Philadelphia. Foxx was one of the original true sluggers in baseball. When he hit 58 homers for the A’s in 1932, it was almost unheard of at the time. Heck, it’s still almost unheard of. 22/31 SLIDES © Scott Kane/Getty Images Philadelphia Phillies: Ryan Howard From Philly’s old team to the current one. Howard’s one skill was slugging, but he could do that with aplomb at his peak. He was certainly at the prime of his powers in 2006 when he hit a whopping 58 dingers. Yes, that’s the same number Foxx hit in the same city over 70 years prior. Maybe it’s a Philadelphia thing. 23/31 SLIDES © Sporting News via Getty Images via Getty Images Pittsburgh Pirates: Ralph Kiner Kiner made the Hall of Fame despite playing in only 10 seasons. He got a lot of bang for his buck though. Kiner led the National League in home runs seven straight seasons to start his career. That includes the 1949 campaign when he went yard 54 times. 24/31 SLIDES © Otto Greule Jr./Allsport San Diego Padres: Greg Vaughn This was before the Padres moved to the spacious confines of Petco Park, which has suppressed homers quite a bit. Vaughn is one of the lesser-known names on this list, as he bounced around the majors and never led the league in homers. Vaughn did hit 50 homers in 1998, though. Of course, that year he wasn’t close to sniffing the lead in the NL. 25/31 SLIDES © Doug Pensinger/Allsport Seattle Mariners: Ken Griffey Jr. There are complicated feelings about Alex Rodriguez, and maybe even Randy Johnson, in Seattle. That doesn’t feel like it’s the case with Griffey. The Kid made himself a star in Seattle before heading to Cincinnati where his father played. Griffey hit 56 homers in back-to-back campaigns, first in 1997 and then again in 1998. That first year he also led the majors in RBI, which helped him win his only MVP. 26/31 SLIDES © Jed Jacobsohn/Getty Images San Francisco Giants: Barry Bonds Remember this guy? We’re sure you do. Bonds is one of the most polarizing players ever, and to some, he’s the face of the steroid era. Say what you will, but the man was an incredible hitter. In addition to having the most career home runs in MLB history, he also had the best individual season ever. In 2001, he hit a staggering 73 homers. Nobody is ever going to do that again. 27/31 SLIDES © Bill Stover/MLB Photos via Getty Images St. Louis Cardinals: Mark McGwire That 1998 season? The one where Greg Vaughn hit 50 and Sammy Sosa hit 66? In the end, that year belonged to Big Mac. He and Sosa were racing to beat Maris’ record. They both did it, but in the end McGwire got the upper hand. He was the first player to ever hit 70 home runs in a season and one of only two guys to do it. 28/31 SLIDES © Mike Stobe/Getty Images Tampa Bay Rays: Carlos Pena The Rays and the Diamondbacks are the two most recent teams to join the majors. Arizona has that one crazy season from Luis Gonzalez. Tampa doesn’t have that. Pena set the franchise mark in 2007 with 46 homers. That’s tied with the fewest homers to be a team record. 29/31 SLIDES © Brian Bahr/Getty Images Texas Rangers: Alex Rodriguez Rodriguez got a lot of guff when he left the Mariners to join the Rangers. Signing a truly insane contract didn’t help. People wanted him to fail. He didn’t win a ring in Texas, but you can’t blame Rodriguez for that. A-Rod won the MVP in his final season with the Rangers, but it’s the year before, 2002, when he hit 57 homers. 30/31 SLIDES © Tom Szczerbowski/Getty Images Toronto Blue Jays: Jose Bautista It took a while for Bautista to get his career going. Heading into 2010, he had 59 home runs in his career. Joey Bats was 29 and seemed like a journeyman. Then suddenly, he exploded for 54 homers. It wasn’t a total fluke either, and more a sign of him being a late bloomer. Bautista made six All-Star Games in a row and added two more 40-homer seasons in his career. 31/31 SLIDES © Mitchell Layton/Getty Images Washington Nationals: Alfonso Soriano This includes when the Nationals were known as the Expos, but evidently none of Montreal’s sluggers ever hit that many homers. After all, Soriano’s record, which he set in 2006, is only 46. That means he is the guy tied with Pena for the most meager home run record. How long will the record be safe? Well, now that Bryce Harper and Anthony Rendon are gone, it may be a bit safer. 31/31 SLIDES

Josh McCown agreed to an unprecedented deal to become the Eagles’ emergency remote quarterback by signing to their practice squad earlier this month, and now we have more details on the arrangement. One of the reasons McCown was brought in was because of his strong relationship with Carson Wentz, and he’s been talking Wentz through his slow start, sources told Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports.

© Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports Josh McCown has been talking Carson Wentz through his slow start, sources told Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports.

Sources also told La Canfora that McCown is viewed by the Eagles and other organizations across the league as a future NFL head coach. McCown is essentially working as a part-time coach right now, as La Canfora writes he’s staying in shape but not training with the team at all. “Several” execs told La Canfora that he “could be an NFL head coach within five years of retiring from the game, perhaps sooner.” Those same execs said he could have a quarterback coach job right now if he wanted it, and would be fast-tracked to be a coordinator.

This isn’t all that surprising considering the Eagles discussed a coaching job with him as far back as January. The 41-year-old McCown was the backup to Wentz last year when he was suddenly inserted in relief in their first-round playoff game against Seattle and nearly led them to an improbable win. If Wentz keeps playing like he has been, they might need him to come in cold off the bench one more time.

Here’s more from around the league:

  • Speaking of guys on the verge of retirement, that’s apparently a good way to describe free agent corner Morris Claiborne. While not officially retired Claiborne is “not actively looking for work and spending family time,” Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com tweets. Fowler adds that while he’s “staying ready just in case,” it “would take the ideal circumstance” to get him off the couch. The sixth overall pick of the 2012 draft by the Cowboys, Claiborne won the Super Bowl with the Chiefs last year, appearing in eight games and starting one. He made 15 starts in each of the previous two seasons with the Jets. If this is really it for him, he’ll hang up his cleats having made 74 starts across eight years, but never quite living up to his draft status.
  • The Saints are playing right now on Sunday Night Football, and they could be reuniting with a familiar face soon. New Orleans brought in cornerback Ken Crawley for a visit on Friday, Field Yates of ESPN.com tweets. The 2016 UDFA started his career with the Saints, and was with him until he was cut and claimed off waivers by the Dolphins in October of last year. He was with both the Raiders and Cardinals during training camp, and was ultimately cut by both. Still only 27, Crawley was a big part of the Saints’ defense for a while, starting 13 games in 2017 and five in 2018. He struggled pretty badly toward the end with the Saints, which is what led to his release.

Full screen 1/26 SLIDES © Rick Stewart/Getty Images The greatest backup quarterbacks in NFL history Here are the greatest backup quarterbacks in NFL history. In an effort to not include overqualified QBs, only passers who started less than a third of their teams' games are eligible. 2/26 SLIDES © Aaron Josefczyk-Icon Sportswire Derek Anderson Browns 2.0 is 1-for-21 in playoff qualification. The closest Cleveland has come since its 2002 berth involved Anderson. Romeo Crennel benched Charlie Frye during a Week 1 loss in 2007; Anderson started the next 15 games. His first start: a 51-45 Browns conquest featuring five touchdown passes. The 2005 sixth-round pick ended that season with 29 TD passes — second-most in Browns history — and a Pro Bowl berth. After Brady Quinn could not full-on supplant Anderson, he later became Cam Newton's backup for seven seasons. His 2-0 starter record in 2014 was crucial in a 7-8-1 Panthers team's playoff journey. 3/26 SLIDES © Icon Sportswire Charlie Batch Batch posted back-to-back winning records as the Lions starter in 1999 and 2000, coming off the bench in '99 to lead them to the playoffs and helping them to the postseason precipice in 2000. But an 0-12 start in '01 led to Batch's release and preceded one of the longest backup-QB runs in NFL history. Batch signed with the Steelers in 2002 and stayed for 11 seasons, playing until age 38. He signed seven Steelers contracts, overcame numerous challenges to his QB2 role and led Pittsburgh to six wins in nine starts — including a 2-0 mark for a 2005 team that needed both wins to allow a Super Bowl march. 4/26 SLIDES © Doug Collier/AFP-Getty Images Bubby Brister Although Brister enjoyed a three-plus-season run as the Steelers starter, which peaked with Chuck Noll's final playoff berth in 1989, the 16-year veteran had a lengthy second NFL life as a 1990s backup. In Philadelphia, Brister first replaced Randall Cunningham after his midseason ACL tear in 1993, starting eight games with a 14-5 TD-INT ratio. However, his most notable backup work came at age 36 in Denver. John Elway missed four games in 1998; Brister threw 10 TD passes and kept the Broncos unbeaten until December. Denver scored 30-plus points in three of those games; Brister was a key part of an all-time great team. Slideshow continues on the next slide 5/26 SLIDES © George Gojkovich-Getty Images Cody Carlson Warren Moon's backup for seven seasons, Carlson mostly kept the Oilers' high-powered car on the road. Houston made the playoffs from 1987-93. Four of those seasons featured at least one Carlson win in a spot start. The Oilers went 10-4 under Carlson, a third-round pick out of Baylor, from 1988-93. Carlson made six relief starts in 1992, twice posting 300-yard games and quarterbacking four wins. He posted three game-winning drives that season. While he failed as Moon's successor in 1994, Carlson was a steady backup during a quality Oilers era. 6/26 SLIDES © Focus on Sport-Getty Images Virgil Carter The Bengals were dealt a tough blow when potential franchise quarterback Greg Cook suffered a career-ending injury barely a few games into his run. After more injuries at QB, Cincinnati turned to Carter in 1970. The mobile ex-Bears sixth-rounder became the guinea pig for Bill Walsh's future West Coast Offense, piloting the Bengals from 1-5 to a playoff berth. Then a Bengals assistant, Walsh used a short-pass system to help Carter. In 1971, Carter led the NFL in completion percentage. He gave way to first-rounder Ken Anderson in 1972 but hung around as an NFL backup until 1976. 7/26 SLIDES © Jess Beals-Icon Sportswire Todd Collins Longevity counts in QB2 annals; Collins supplied this better than most. Elvis Grbac's former Michigan successor played 16 NFL seasons, beginning as Jim Kelly's Bills heir apparent but settling in as a backup for most of his career. Collins initially helped the 1996 Bills make the playoffs, filling in for Kelly thrice, and spent much of the 2000s as Trent Green's seldom-seen Chiefs backup. Collins resurfaced in a key spot at age 36, filling in for Jason Campbell and going 3-0 with a 5-0 TD-INT ratio to lift the 2007 Redskins to the playoffs. He threw two TD passes in Washington's first-round loss in Seattle. 8/26 SLIDES © Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports Chase Daniel Daniel has banked nearly $35 million and has done so without ever being signed to start for a team. Perhaps this era's quintessential backup/NFL character-actor equivalent was a Mizzou Heisman finalist before backing up Drew Brees, Alex Smith, Carson Wentz, Brees again and Mitchell Trubisky. Daniel's 11-year stat line: 149 completions on 218 attempts, seven TD passes, five INTs. He completed 70% of his passes in each of his two-game samples with the Bears, helping the '18 Bears to an NFC North title. Still going strong, Daniel signed a three-year, $13.1 million deal to back up Matthew Stafford. 9/26 SLIDES © Focus on Sport-Getty Images Gary Danielson Danielson played 15 seasons of pro football, the first two in the short-lived World Football League. The future college football analyst caught on with the Lions, with whom he played nine seasons. Despite playing in the final era for soaring INT totals, Danielson finished his career with an 81-78 TD-INT ratio. He took the Detroit starting job midway through 1978 and dropped a Lions-record five TDs on the Vikings. Danielson split time with Eric Hipple in Detroit's NFC Central title year in 1983 but threw five INTs in a playoff loss to the 49ers. Danielson finished his career as Bernie Kosar's Browns backup. Slideshow continues on the next slide 10/26 SLIDES © Rick Stewart-Getty Images Doug Flutie Almost overqualified for this list but not quite. Flutie's most notable NFL work came in 1998, when he replaced Rob Johnson and helped the holdovers from Buffalo's Super Bowl teams voyage to two more playoff brackets. Flutie's first NFL backup foray went poorly, with the undersized USFL alum stumbling for the 1986 Bears. He spent most of the '90s as a Canada icon before resurfacing as a 1998 Pro Bowler. The dual-threat passer was inexplicably benched for the Music City Miracle game but again came off the bench to help the Bills in 2000. Flutie finished a 21-year pro career by playing behind Drew Brees and Tom Brady. 11/26 SLIDES © Nate Fine-Getty Images James Harris The first black quarterback to be a regular NFL starter and first to start a playoff game, Harris was an NFL trailblazer. The Grambling product did not receive much of a chance with the Bills in the late 1960s and left football briefly in 1972, but he caught on with the Rams and became their starter when Chuck Knox traded Pro Bowler John Hadl in-season. Harris steered a defensively powered team to the 1974 NFC championship game, earning Pro Bowl honors. Back as a part-timer by 1976, Harris posted a 436-yard, four-TD day in a shootout win over the Dolphins. He finished his career backing up Dan Fouts in San Diego. 12/26 SLIDES © Matt Pearce-Icon Sportswire Shaun Hill Although Hill never made any starts for a playoff team, the 2002 undrafted free agent put together a 14-year career. Hill saw extensive time as a backup to Alex Smith in San Francisco, Matthew Stafford in Detroit and Sam Bradford in St. Louis. Given the keys to some bad teams' offenses, Hill finished his career with a 49-30 TD-INT ratio. The 2008 49ers wanted winners, and Hill delivered, going 5-3 with a team that ranked 23rd defensively. He threw 16 TD passes in 10 Lions starts in 2010 and hung around through until 2016, backing up Bradford again in Minnesota. 13/26 SLIDES © Jesse Beals-Icon Sportswire Kelly Holcomb Enjoying a quiet 14-year career best remembered for a shootout loss in Pittsburgh, Holcomb made the move from Peyton Manning's backup to a challenger to Tim Couch's Browns job by following Bruce Arians to Cleveland in 2001. The Middle Tennessee alum started three 2002 games, two of them shootout losses featuring 300-plus Holcomb passing yards. After subbing for Couch in Week 1 (the Dwayne Rudd Game), Holcomb did so in the Browns' only 21st-century playoff contest -- a 36-33 loss to the Steelers. But Holcomb threw for 429 yards, earning the 2003 Browns QB1 job. He played until 2007. 14/26 SLIDES © John Sommers-Icon Sportswire Brian Hoyer Earning his journeyman letterman's jacket, Hoyer is now on his third Patriots stay. Hoyer's most notable work came in his hometown. In 16 Cleveland starts between the 2013-14 seasons, Hoyer went 10-6. No QB in Browns 2.0 history can match that 16-game sample. Hoyer managed to have the Browns at 7-4 before fading in 2014; his benching for Johnny Manziel began a historically bad Browns run. Hoyer took over for Ryan Mallett early in 2015 and compiled a 19-7 TD-INT ratio in nine starts, helping the Texans to the playoffs. The career backup/spot starter now has a chance to succeed Tom Brady. Slideshow continues on the next slide 15/26 SLIDES © Al Golub-Icon Sportswire Damon Huard The more successful of the NFL's quarterbacking Huards, Damon played 13 seasons and collected a Super Bowl ring with the 2003 Patriots. When Dan Marino sat due to an injury in his final season, Huard went 4-1 in workmanlike wins. That stretch helped Miami to a wild-card berth. Huard's age-33 season in Kansas City was better. A frightening Trent Green Week 1 concussion thrust Huard into action. While the backup handed off to Larry Johnson plenty, he threw 11 TD passes and one INT, led the Chiefs to four 30-point games and a playoff spot. The Chiefs benching Huard in 2007 preceded a tough period for the franchise. 16/26 SLIDES © Focus on Sport-Getty Images Jeff Kemp In between Roman Gabriel and Jim Everett, the Rams could not find a steady quarterback in a near-15-year period. But like James Harris, Kemp came through in key spots. Replacing Vince Ferragamo in 1984, the fourth-year UDFA led the Rams to the playoffs. Eric Dickerson breaking the single-season rushing record helped matters, but Kemp made 13 starts and aided the Rams to nine wins. The 49ers traded for Kemp in 1986, and he started six games for an injured Joe Montana. He threw for 300-plus yards in two of those during a 49ers playoff season. Kemp played 11 NFL seasons, retiring in 1992. 17/26 SLIDES © Focus On Sport-Getty Images Bob Lee In between reliable stints as a Vikings backup, Lee oversaw the best Falcons stretch in their first decade of existence. A 17th-round pick out of Pacific in 1968, Lee was traded to Atlanta in 1973. He took over in Week 5 and led the Falcons to an 8-2 run that included a Monday night win (highlighted by this play) over his former Vikings team bound for Super Bowl VIII. Lee found his way back to Minnesota in 1975, finishing his career as Fran Tarkenton's QB2. His final start, in a 1977 do-or-die regular-season finale, ended with a 30-20 win for an aging Viking squad attempting to defend its NFC title. 18/26 SLIDES © Focus On Sport-Getty Images Jacky Lee A highly drafted backup and part of an unusual transaction, Lee was part of three AFL champions. The Oilers used their first-ever AFL pick on Lee but saw future Hall of Famer George Blanda come out of retirement and become the starter for the AFL's first dynasty. Lee came off the bench six times from 1960-61. A 1961 Lee start ended with a then-AFL-record 457 passing yards. AFL commissioner Bud Foss then helped broker a two-season Lee loan -- an all-time oddity -- to the Broncos. Lee actually returned to Houston after the loan but ended his career as a Chiefs backup. He played in all 10 AFL seasons 19/26 SLIDES © Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports Josh McCown Among non-kickers, only Tom Brady and Drew Brees have been active longer. A third-round Cardinals pick in 2002, McCown has played for nine teams. The 40-year-old QB has been both a productive and unproductive starter while serving as a capable backup for nearly two decades. McCown's game-winning TD pass knocked the 2003 Vikings out of the playoffs; he produced three straight 300-yard games to keep the 2013 Bears in the hunt while spelling Jay Cutler. McCown recently helped a skeleton-crew Eagles offense put a scare into the Seahawks in January. While 23-53 as a starter, McCown has played for many bad teams. 20/26 SLIDES © Denny Medley-USA TODAY Sports Matt Moore Like Lee, Moore also made a cameo for a Chiefs Super Bowl champion. Initially surfacing as a Panthers UDFA, Moore spent seven seasons in Miami. He took over for Chad Henne and helped turn an 0-4 Dolphins team into a less terrible 6-10 squad in 2011, ruining any #SuckForLuck hopes. And after zero starts from 2012-15, Moore secured Miami's lone 2010s playoff berth after Ryan Tannehill tore an ACL. Moore may end up being most remembered for leaving a high school coaching job to be Patrick Mahomes' emergency QB. The Chiefs would not have earned a bye had Moore's 275-yard outing against the Vikings not happened. 21/26 SLIDES © Focus on Sport-Getty Images Earl Morrall We have to bend the 33.3% rule here. It is impossible to have a backup QBs list without Morrall. A starter in 35% of his teams' games, the 21-year veteran arguably delivered the two most memorable years in QB2 annals. The former No. 2 overall pick was a journeyman before the Colts lost Johnny Unitas in 1968 and traded for Morrall. The late-arriving Colt became NFL MVP, throwing 26 TD passes. Super Bowl III did not go well for the two-time Pro Bowler, but Morrall ended up winning two rings -- first as Unitas' backup/fill-in 1970 and second as Bob Griese's reliever. Morrall went 11-0 as a starter in 1972 to preserve the Dolphins' 17-0 season. 22/26 SLIDES © Focus on Sport-Getty Images Bill Munson A first-round Rams pick in 1964, Munson did not retire until 1980. A backup and part-time starter for five teams, the Utah State product was best known for his Lions stay. Munson split time with the younger Greg Landry during much of his eight-year Detroit run. He came off the bench for a final drive in a 5-0 playoff loss to the Cowboys in 1971, nearing marching the Lions to an upset. Munson re-emerged as a starter in 1974 and '75, sporting a winning record with unremarkable Lions teams. He finished his career as a backup in Seattle, San Diego and Buffalo. 23/26 SLIDES © Focus on Sport-Getty Images Frank Reich Jim Kelly's backup for eight of the Hall of Famer's 11 seasons, Reich played 14 years and is responsible for one of the NFL's signature performances. After Reich struggled against the Oilers in Week 17 of the 1992 season, his NFL-record 32-point comeback in the Bills' wild-card revenge stunner featured 289 yards and four touchdown passes. A week later, Reich guided the Super Bowl-bound Bills to a 24-3 win over the No. 1-seeded Steelers. The current Colts head coach struggled away from Buffalo but still finished with a positive career TD-INT ratio and an unassailable QB2 legacy. 24/26 SLIDES © Sylvia Allen-Getty Images Don Strock It is difficult for any backup quarterback to top Strock's performance in arguably the greatest game ever played. Strock spent a staggering 15 seasons as the Dolphins' backup, starting 22 games and leading eight game-winning drives. While key in helping the team to two playoff brackets in the late '70s, Strock coming off the bench with the Dolphins down 24-0 in 1981's "Epic in Miami" was an all-timer. He threw for 401 yards and four TDs in the Dolphins' 38-35 Round 2 loss to the Chargers. Even his final start became a comeback win to secure the Bernie Kosar-less Browns 1988 playoff access. 25/26 SLIDES © Focus on Sport-Getty Images Mike Tomczak Tomczak played long enough to be a backup dancer in the 1985 Bears' "Super Bowl Shuffle" video and start a game in the 21st century. He received advantages of working with elite defenses -- the Bears of the mid-to-late '80s and the "Blitzburgh" Steelers of the '90s -— but he stepped in for Chicago's Jim McMahon and Pittsburgh's Neil O'Donnell frequently to help several playoff-bound teams. The 16-year veteran's best work came in 1996 when he replaced Jim Miller in Week 1 and led the Steelers to 10 wins and a trip to the divisional round. 26/26 SLIDES © Jonathan Daniel-Getty Images Steve Walsh A national champion at Miami, Walsh emerged as a notable fill-in for multiple playoff teams. With Saints starter Bobby Hebert a full-season holdout in 1990, Walsh replaced John Fourcade early that year and played well in spurts to help New Orleans to the playoffs — albeit at 8-8. He received another chance in a long-term audition four years later in Chicago. The Bears lost Erik Kramer to injury, and Walsh piloted the team to its only postseason cameo between 1991-2001. Walsh fared better in '94, completing 61 percent of his throws and throwing two TD passes in a wild-card win over the Vikings. 26/26 SLIDES
