Re: Bronco's move to 6/0 !
Joe Montana, Jim Kelly, Troy Aikman, Dan Marino, Boomer Esaison, and John Elway all were starting QBs in the league at about the same time.
Pretty sure they're all in the HOF.
And, not to make too big a point of it, but the rules were different then, with a lot more contact allowed between defenders and receivers. And of course, the rules regarding contact with the QBs today has crossed the line into just plain ridiculous.
All QBs thirty years ago took more punishment than the QBs of today and were tough enough to get up and keep playing.
So when people try to tell me the top QBs today could have outplayed the ones above, I wonder: strip away all these new rules, just how long would Brady last?
Oh, and I'm a lifer Chiefs fan, but was happy for JE when he finally got his ring. And not a Peyton fan, but he's probably the best QB in the league, and one of the best all-time. Have to respect that.
