Okay, okay, I give Bradshaw his due for winning four Super
Bowls. He was a darn good quarterback, which is why I list him
among the 12 greatest of all time. That’s high praise.
BUT (italics from Wikipedia) … he passed for more than 300 yards in a game only seven times, and threw many interceptions (he threw 210 interceptions over the course of his career) and he only hadÂ two more touchdowns (212) than interceptions (210) for his career. He completed less than 50 percent of his passes for his career. And In 1999, he was ranked number 44 on The Sporting News’ list of the 100 Greatest Football Players not all that great, and just 10th among quarterbacks (including Graham, Baugh and Luckman, who did not qualify for my restriction to the “modern” game. And that was before Favre, Manning and Brady entered the picture.
Fan debates are one of the things that make sports so much fun. But I just don’t see Bradshaw as being among the top 6, although, again, being in the top 12 of all QBS who ever played the game is awfully fine company.

The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
