Aikman was THE QB of the 90's IMO. His career ended early, so his "stats" don't tell the whole story.

superbowls mean shit as far as individual stats go.

Elway's highest TD season was only 27.  No HOF?

Neither did Bradshaw.  28 was his highest.  Does he belong in the HOF?

no (and i know ill get flak for this)
but the steelers as a team deserves to be one of the best teams of all time.

elway had lots of td's and yards. he deserves to be in there.

also helps to have mccaffrey, terrell davis, and shannon sharpe on your side, plus a killer defense headed by lynch.

You can't judge a player solely on stats. Look at some of the guys with huge career stats; Bledsoe, Testaverdee etc.. are they better than Montana, Young, Aikman, Graham etc...

montana himself has said that if himn and marino had role reversals, marino wouldve been winning those superbowls. stats just show pure individual talent. if the rest of your teammates suck, you can only go so far.


marino almost did it by himself in 84.

Ummm, Elway retired 6 years before Lynch arrived in Denver.   Roll Eyes

exaggerating again about Marino, he had one of the greatest WR tandems in the history of the game in Duper and Clayton.

You want to talk about a great QB as far as numbers, but who never gets a mention...the great Dan Fouts!

look up their #'s, they're right up there with Stallworth/Swann, Bruce/Holt, Rice/Taylor, Carter/Moss, Monk/Brown or any of them.

Oh yeah, one of the best games ever.  I was so fired up as a kid, but then they had to play in zero weather at Cincy the next week.  Got smoked.

Fouts did have some good weapons though.  Winslow, Joiner, Chandler, J. Jefferson, Muncie, Brooks, etc...

the defense sucked ass!

Come on man. You don't believe that? If you did, why didn't Cassel take them to the playoffs? Why wasn't their division record stronger than it was?

Cheating...just a bunch of BS media hooplah. Like Bellichick did anything every other coach is doing. Spare me.

I'm not a Pats fan, but that wasn't cheating.

And though an 11-5 mark proves that the team isn't all-Brady, they can't win the big one without him.

theyve never been all brady. he didnt really have a SUPERB year until randy moss came to town.


he was great, though, considering he only had so-so receivers for the longest time.
plus vinatieri bailed that whole team for a long time.

I like Cassel, and 11-5 is a record I'd love for my team to have.  If the Raiders were 11-5, tonite's San Diego-Denver game wouldn't mean shit! lol

they were definitely good. but out of all those receiver tandems you posted, where would you rank duper/clayton?


exactly.

I think he belongs in the HOF. I don't think he deserved to go as early as he did.

The same thing will happen in baseball. Jeter will go in first ballot HOF, even though he's not the greatest infielder of his era.

Some guys are just media darlings that remain untouchable. Aikman was one of those guys. Peyton Manning is another -- they are untouchable, and they would have to be caught throwing kittens from atop the Empire State Building in the nude for anyone to believe differently.

thats whats its all about really. being a media darling.

you hit the nail in the head with Jeter.
Manning can actually play. Smiley

all im saying is since football is considered by many as the ultimate TEAM sport, wins shouldnt be attributed to ONE single player.

if you are gonna go by individual talent, you CANNOT use wins as a stat. only individual sports can get away with that (boxing, wrestling, golf, tennis, etc)
