I knew two things were going to happen in this draft:
1. Post-season records would mean too much.
2. Old school QB would get shortchanged.
Here's how my draft went and why:
1. PManning. If he wins a couple more playoff games and/or Super Bowls, everyone says he's the best. He was obviously superior to Montana in skills but Montana won games with a newfangled, at the time, offense. People rub Montana's balls like a magic genie will pop out because of this. So Manning is #2 unless he does something special in Denver in the playoffs. And, for the record, he DID NOT allow a Ravens WR to get behind him when the most important thing to do was NOT let a Ravens WR get behind you.
2. Because of Manning's post-season deficiencies, I knew I needed a "winner". Bart Starr is probably the anti-Peyton. Never put up big numbers on a run-first team in what was a run-first league. But he won playoff games and played really well in them. However, because of the lack of numbers, I figured he'd be shortchanged. Make no mistake, he's a top 10 QB now.
3. Jim Kelly. Kind of a 'tweener. Put up some good numbers and won some playoff games. But he's known for losing FOUR Super Bowls. Swap the performance of his kickers and Brady's and people are speaking of Kelly as an all-time great. I always thought he acted like a dick so, on that alone, I've got him somewhere in the top 20.
4. Sonny Jurgensen. He was a stat-stud for bad teams in the 60s. Retired at #3 in total passing yards. Hall of Famer. At pick 31, he was easily the best QB left. But, being from the 60s with no playoff games, I knew no one would give him props. And no one has. Learn some NFL history, fucktards.
