Posted by toddcommish on 2/14/2013 2:24:00 PM (view original):The fact that Young played in the shadow of Montana hurts him. He was a BEAST.
Steve Young put up amazing numbers, won passing titles, and won MVP awards. And wasn't worth a **** until he won a Super Bowl. At least in the Bay Area...
And Marino isn't a top 5 QB. He's a stat monster, and a fantasy football icon, but honestly, I'd put Jim Kelly ahead of him.
Marino > Kelly. Come on. I'll let you take it back if you want.
Drafted the same year, and played in the SAME DIVISION, Kelly went to FOUR Super Bowls, Marino went to ONE
Kelly even gave him a head start by playing in the USFL. If you wanna play the coach card, Marino had Don Shula, by most accounts, a top-5 head coach. Kelly had Marv Levy (SJSU!). If they played in different conferences, you could claim apples to oranges, but come on, THEY WERE IN THE SAME DIVISION FOR THEIR ENTIRE NFL CAREERS.
