Prime Numbers celebrates Friday the 13th by looking at No. 13

NBCSN’s Pro Football Talk continues to roll through the month of June with the Prime Numbers series, looking at the best of the best to wear any/every given jersey number.

With Friday the 13th looming, why not reverse the bad luck (or tempt twice as much of it) by considering No. 13?

The guys listed below had very good luck — and not a smidge of triskaidekaphobia.  Vote for the best of the best from the list that includes a guy who at one point his life actually looked like Jonah Hill.

Your luck is sure to improve if you join us on Friday at 5:30 p.m. ET, and if you stick around to see whether it’s an lucky night for the Kings or the Rangers in Game Five of the Stanley Cup Final.

    With so few players listed for #13 the vote is over before any ballots are cast.

    Marino in a landslide.

    Only 3-1 Marino over Warner?

    Everyone not voting for Marino should include themselves in the concussion lawsuit.

    No question, Marino is one of the all-time greats, but 4 to 1 over Warner??? I don’t think so. The main category where Marino wins is in longevity, but it’s hardly Warner’s fault that GMs didn’t recognize his talent for so long. It’s hard to compare stats per game from different eras (which Warner wins), but 4 to 1?

    I was just at the grocery store and Warner was destroying Marino in their ballot.

    Frank Ryan

    But…but…but Marino never won a Super Bowl!

    For all the imbeciles that think that a Super Bowl win is the only thing that defines a great career.

    Warner > Marino

    As soon as I saw it was 13 I knew who I was voting for, before I even opened the article. Marino. Everyone else, go ahead and make your cases, statistically or otherwise. Don’t care. Don’t hear you. Marino all day.

    Don’t you realize that no one under the age of 25 never heard of a lot of these players. Young people don’t know anything about the history of football or anything else and they don’t even bother to try. They don’t have a clue who Jake Scott is.

    To this day, the greatest thrower of the ball that ever lived.

    He may not have been the best QB, although top 5, NO ONE had the release that Marino had.

    Sweet Jeezus that picture is fantastic.

  14. piratefreedom says: Jun 12, 2014 8:19 PM

    As a Patriots fan I damn well know 13 is Marino

  15. johnlink00 says: Jun 12, 2014 8:53 PM

    Saw it was 13 and thought Marino before opening the article. Has to be him. And I am a Pats fan. So what if Marino’s last Super Bowl appearance was in Ace Ventura?!? He is still an all time great.

  16. theoriginalbvan says: Jun 12, 2014 9:04 PM

    That pic is hilarious and he’s my pick, but Warner is an extremely deserving second.

  17. robgilman says: Jun 12, 2014 9:17 PM

    3 Superbowl appearances to none. Warner in a landslide

  18. crik911 says: Jun 12, 2014 9:41 PM

    Jack Scott only 13 to win the big one. I like Dan alot more, just sayin’

  19. somethinghappeninghere says: Jun 12, 2014 10:09 PM

    Marino, but I’d love to pick another great Dolphin, Jake Scott, MVP of Supe 7…still, Marino in a landslide…

  20. 6250claimer says: Jun 12, 2014 10:13 PM

    It’s too bad that Danny put up all those huge numbers but never won a SB. Well, at least he made it to one. I’m sure he has that white #13 jersey, with grass stains all over the back of it from the Niner defense knocking him down and sacking him all day, from that fateful day at Stanford Stadium in 1985. Probably prominently displayed in his den.

    I grew up a Seahawks fan but Marino was every bit as responsible for getting me into football.

    Shame he never had a team around him.

    I realize everyone says “Blah blah Brady does so much with so little”, well back when the Patriots were actually winning superbowls rather than being an also-ran, he had a great team around him.

  22. mikebrownistheworstownerinprosports says: Jun 12, 2014 10:54 PM

    Warner had a great storybook career and he’d have my vote for the HOF. That said, it’s Marino and it’s not really close. Marino is a top 3 all-time QB.

  23. stewart09 says: Jun 12, 2014 11:04 PM

    best QB of his day never had the team montana did would of played in more superbowls if not for his pathetic defense (sometimes it was good to very good in the regular season but always fell apart in the post-season same with his o-line which destroyed vs the 49ers)

    Because Marino was ‘Kurt Warner’ before anyone like him should have happened.

    Is this even a debate? Dan the man by a longshot.

  26. titusyoungslegalcounsel says: Jun 14, 2014 2:03 AM

    Stevie Johnson.

    Why does god do him like that?

  27. Canton Bulldogs says: Jun 18, 2014 9:13 PM

    When you read the other players opinion they say it’s great, haven’t had that intensity on offense since Q left. I’ll bet every corner that lines up opposite Smith in practice tightens his chin strap a little tighter. It’ll pay off when they line up against big softies like Antonio Brown and AJ Green.

    Oops wrong thread, darn ipad messed me up.
