It's a bad sign when you're better known for your racist nickname than your quarterback play; such is the case with Jack Thompson a.k.a. “The Throwin' Samoan.” Another college quarterback who put up all types of school records, Thompson never won more than one game as a starting quarterback for the Bengals, and never won more than two games during his entire NFL career. Just a guess, but that 33-45 TD-INT ratio might have something to do with that.
