Yeah, I think that used to happen more, with star players stuck on otherwise bad teams. I think it happens less now, for a few different reasons.
Sanders blew me away with his runs. Just phenomenal. Shame he was stuck on a weak team. I remember they were always blown out because the D just focused on him. Washington 41-10 and Philly 58-37. Itís a shame
Yeah, Kelly really deserved one. I feel bad for those Bills teams, they get a bad rap just because they didn't quite get there, but that stuff turns on marginal things. They were amazing.

Sanders...man. When I was growing up, he was the most magical guy, hands down. Even very young, when I knew basically zero about football (I got into it a lot later than baseball), I could tell he was different.
It would have been nice to see him along with Barry Sanders, Jim Kelly, and even Phillip Rivers win a SB before their respective retirements. Growing up, while watching how a dominant San Francisco and Dallas were at the time, it always looked easy for them
(...and they still do.)
Yeah those passing numbers adjusted for the era are bananas. I hope people remember that stuff, since everything's inflated now.

Part of that long tradition of legendary QBs from southwestern PA. People like to joke there must've been something in the water, but it's more just that people around here took this stuff way too seriously for generations.

I dig. Yeah, it took people awhile to realize just how good (particularly from the time period, which is really the only way to judge these things) he was.

That said, so many great players like that are worth seeing, fan or no. I'm not a Dodgers fan but I'm so glad I got to see Clayton Kershaw in person.
Oh, absolutely. I was just too young to appreciate it. Now itís different. It really wasnít until I had already moved to Pennsylvania, and by that time I was old enough, to realize how good he was.

Yeah, most fans agree Marino's biggest flaw was his inability to also play on the defensive line.
Yoda, you cannot debate an ass.
