    Evolution of QB:Yesterdays vs Todays (Blechr Reprt

    Throughout the 50's and 60's offensive success depended mostly on the running game. And the most commonly used formation during that era was the pro-set. At that time the pro-set was generally a running offense that used play action fakes to set up deep passing attempts when defenses stacked up vs the running game.

    Then in the 70's, along came a man by the name of Don Coryell and a strong armed quarterback named Dan Fouts and the quarterback position changed dramatically from that point on.

    .......snip.........

    Taking all of these things and more into consideration I have developed a formula to rate a quarterback based on six key factors of their careers. And those are:

    SUPER BOWL TITLES

    SUPER BOWL APPEARANCES

    PRO-BOWL APPEARANCES

    LEAGUE MVP

    TOUCHDOWNS

    YARDS THROWN AND RUSHED

    Something else that was different back then - I can't think of a single QB who started their rookie year unless they were forced into it through injury.

    As always, and excellent point.

    I tried to think of some other QB's to throw in and try the math but couldn't come up with any better than this list.
