Steelers Left Jack Kemp Go

This generation knows Jack Kemp as a Congressman from Western New York.   In 1996, he was the Vice Presidential  running mate to Bob Dole. He was also a great quarterback on two Championship teams during the years of the AFL.   Playing the entire ten years,  Jack Kemp gave the league both visibility and credibility.  The last years, 1967 to 1969, were uneventful. Kemp was a seven time member of the AFL All Star Team.

The Chargers started out in Los Angeles in 1960 and moved to San Diego the following year.

1961-Chargers won the Western Division with a 12-2 record; lost the AFL Title Game at home 10 to 3.

The Chargers traded Kemp in the middle of 1962. Both teams did nothing that year.  In future years,  Jack Kemp quarterbacked a dynasty.
