It’s hard to turn down Jaromir Jagr, who was phenomenal as a Ranger and is still turning heads in New Jersey, but Mawae was a Pro Bowler in six of his eight years with the Jets. He was a phenomenal center.

There’s not much to choose from here, though if Nash played anything like he did in Columbus he’d easily be the favorite. His performance as a Ranger aside, Nash has accomplished more in his career than anyone else to wear No. 61 in this town.

Runner-up: Chris Godfrey, Giants

60. Larry Grantham, Jets

It’s close, but Grantham gets the nod because of his five Pro Bowl appearances. He also helped the Jets win a Super Bowl in 1968.

Runner-up: Shaun O’Hara, Giants
