Evolution of QB:Yesterdays vs Todays (Blechr ReprtThroughout 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.
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
YARDS THROWN AND RUSHED
Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.

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.Zeus wrote:
When are you going to realize that picking out the 20 bad throws this year and ignoring the 300 good ones does not make your point?
