    But he turned the ball over in post season also.

    Back to back three turnover games in his last 2 Super Bowls. Terry just winged it.

    I don't mind it. You have a gunslinger? He's going to make mistakes.

    He's also going to make big plays.

    Art II seems to not realize that with Ben. He and Bradshaw are cut from the same cloth.

    unless he played for any other team, in which case you would use it to diminish his accomplishments

    Like what? Not winning a Super Bowl since being caught cheating like Brady or throwing 3 TDs and 7 picks in the lone SB ring like Peyton did?

    Until Brady wins a ring without camera's his career is a farce.

    Exactly. When you have a ginslinger, you HAVE to take the good with the bad. . .In Ben's case, there has been some bad, but been much more good. And obviously Bradshaw delivered; he has 4 trophies.

    Ya I saw the nfl network on best qbs of the 70s and Bradshaw was # 3 behind staubach and tarkenten. I thought it was bullshit. Like saying dan Marino and John elway were higher on the 80 s list than joe montana. Bradshaw wasn't always perfect, but when it came down to the big games and crucial moments he was money.

    Same reason you never hear big Ben mentioned as an elite qb. Or ever hear Franco Harris mentioned as one of the greatest rbs of all time. Or the reason Jerome Bettis isnt in the hall of fame yet.
    Cleveland Browns suck!

    Bradshaw was 3-0 vs. those two in SBs also.

    Tarkenton was never that good. He just played forever.

    Roger is the baby faced former Naval officer. Overrated.

    I think Tarkenton was overrated as well but thought Staubach was very good but Bradshaw was better then both. Dan Fouts was also impress in the late 70's.

    Other then the 4 mentioned of the 70's most of the other qb's were not very good at all. Archie Manning may have been good though but all I remember of watching him. Is him running 20 yards in his own backfield for his life. If you think Ben has it bad with OL then watch some old footage of Manning.
