EPISODE SUMMARY

I know that I will be getting a lot of feedback for this topic, and perhaps rightly so. I may even receive a lot of arguments as well. So be it. But let me begin by stating that this subject has at least some amount of stretching to it.

For example, no one really believes that some of the quarterbacks that I am listing here actually have a shot at becoming a member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame. All I am saying with this episode is that there is a category or two where these quarterbacks did manage to excel, and as such, they deserve at least some recognition over the span of several decades in time. Maybe not in the Hall of Fame, but in some sort of acceptance and honor, nonetheless.

I’m just going to begin by listing these 1970s quarterbacks, in a non-alphabetical manner, and in a random way, by their names.

I will then discuss with you, their achievements. Those signal callers are: John Hadl, Ken Anderson, John Brodie, Earl Morrall, Craig Morton, and Roman Gabriel..........
