NFL (since 2016)
Free agency started last night and was pretty crazy some huge money being spent.

Osweiler getting £18m a year for the Texans, leaving the Broncos without a QB,

Giants have spent a fortune on good but not great players, Oliver Vernon has more guaranteed money than JJ Watt.

lots more deals but cant be bothered to list them all.

I don't think it was as much a case of not rating him as much as not liking him.

Bradshaw remembering when Elway refused to play for the Colts who drafted him and threatened to play baseball instead.

"All I remember was, well wait a minute. The worst team gets the best player. That’s the greatest compliment in the world. Why wouldn’t you go to Baltimore? I went to Pittsburgh. Do you think a Louisiana boy wants to go to (expletive) Pittsburgh? I would have rather gone in the fifth round and gone to the Saints or some place down home. But you know what? I saddled up and went.”

Elway is probably smarter but Bradshaw has done okay with what he got. Give him three more rings like Bradshaw and I would make Brees the greatest ever (no bias) but he would need Bradshaw's defence to do that.

Re: NFL (since 2016)
The talk of interview and quarterbacks reminds me of one with Terry Bradshaw. Before my time but saw it somewhere.

Nice reporter says:

"You have started a bit slow this season. What might be the reason for that?"

Bradshaw: "The alcohol mostly."

Unlike the one Sherman, it stops the reporter in his tracks

Re: NFL (since 2016)
I love the way that Sherman interview ends with the reporter...

"Well...and, Joe, back over to you..."

She just left Sherman's words hanging, as he had the final word in the game. Actually a decent "leave" by the reporter. There was nothing else that needed to be said at that point, so she didn't say anything else. Fair play to her.

Going through there and seeing Richard Sherman

His interview about Crabtree with that female reporter is still a great watch.

Re: NFL (since 2016)
Some terrible QB picks early in that draft though barring Newton

Re: NFL (since 2016)
check out the 2011 draft, even scrolling down to some of the later picks there were some players who have had very decent careers

Yeah, his point was that was where New England's luck turned for the first time and the rest is a history still being written.

Hard to remember when they weren't good.

Crystal, my post below was taken from Pro Football.com in 2005 so the 2011 draft hadn't happened yet

Re: NFL (since 2016)
And that "tuck" play was a fucking fumble.

Re: NFL (since 2016)
My Dad always tells me that Marion is the best of all time but he hasnt really followed the sport for years.

Hard to argue that he may well be up there with the most talented but not sure he can be in the discussion having never won a superbowl

Re: NFL (since 2016)
Cough - does make you wonder what the hell the Yanks were putting in the water in 1983!

TM - totally agree: for me, Elway tops the lot of them.

Irons - respect your view, mate. Things like GOAT are all about opinions. My brother, for his part, will not have a word said against Dan Marino and claims he did it all "one one good knee"! He's got a bit of a point: Marino entered the NFL with a structural knee problem. But lazer-like accuracy.

Re: NFL (since 2016)
I always preferred Steve Young to Montana personally.

Both excellent, but Young felt like the first QB who was mustard with his legs as well and he was brilliant in the Superbowl.

Cunt got 43 TD's, which wasn't bad in an era where it was still legal to kick the fuck out of them.

I said top ten maybe top 5 because I did not have a list in mind but I would put Montana ahead of him, yes.

Brady, Brees, Marino and Manning probably

I can't really comment on people like Unitas, Staubach, Otto Graham who I have seen on lists higher than him.

The AFC was pretty garbage in the late 80s early 90s, as evidence by the fact that first Bronco Super Bowl was the first in well over ten years for them. So Montana was facing better teams more regularly and getting to the Super Bowl was a bigger accomplishment. In my opinion.

I was watching a think from the 100 years and Mark Wahlberg was discussing about how New England had won nothing (Boston thought they were cursed) until the tuck play.

Far Cough 4:47 Thu Oct 17
Re: NFL (since 2016)
My 5 top QBs are:

Dan the man Marino
John the Scrambler Elway
Tom Brady has to be up there
Joe the Mouse Montana
Steve Young
