It was sad that Reaves didn't develop into a top quarterback in the NFL. IIRC when he graduated from Florida he set a few NCAA passing records. When Philly drafted him in the early 70's they should have started him right then. Norm Snead was not the answer a few years before and Roman Gabriel wasn't the answer a few years later. He then gets traded to Cinci but Kenny Anderson by that time had 5 seasons under his belt and had the Bengals playing good ball. If it wasn't for Anderson Reaves could have started there.

His last years were with Houston and Kenny Stabler was there. When Reaves signed with Tampa Bay he put those butts in the seats. The Bandits were one of the top 3 franchises in the USFL back then. In Reaves last season he passed for over 4000 yards.

I have a laundry list of quarterbacks that I recall that deserved a better fate for a variety of reasons. John Reaves was one of them.
