    Kinda off topic, but I wish there was a way to know how Todd, Namath and Stabler would have integrated into CNS's offense and how, for instance, Jalen could have been effective during the wishbone days.

    FWIW, Jalen was 27-2 as a starter and he threw the ball alot compared to the greats of old but that's not why we won with him.
    Todd's passer rating was 146.9 for his college career and I'm guessing for back then before all the passing took over, that was pretty good.

    Yeah, but in an era when teams didn't pass as much was the element of surprise an advantage? IDK, but I also know he probably didn't have the type of skilled pass blockers and receivers that the modern game features either.

    I'd have to know more about how to interpret those things.

    Context - as I keep saying - is everything.

    CFB teams were happy with 60% field goal kickers in 1966 - from inside 40 yards. Very few kickers nowadays would be able to keep their jobs with percentages that low - at least on the elite teams.
    My New Year's resolution for 2019 is this year I'm not going to drink anymore. I'm not going to drink any less, either.

    I was married for 25 years, but if I'd killed her on the honeymoon, I'd have been out in less than 20.

    After reading all the horrible things drinking will do to you....I gave up reading.
