I really liked this piece. Compares the two after five years and gives stats and all other good stuff. You'll be surprised who comes out on top.

I don't know about comparing two QB's 30 years apart... The game is more QB friendly now then it was in the 70's. I think what Bradshaw was able to do under "that" NFL brand of the 70's will always be uncomparable.

Exactly! And, the Steelers were a lot worse team when Bradshaw was drafted compared to when BR was drafted as well. :^)

Yeah That..II

Just too much different in the style of play. Both do a good job in leading the teams on the field but comparing the "numbers" is just not the same.

Six Super Bowls between these two guys. That's not too shabby.

on subject:

I find it really impossible to compare 2 players from different era's.

Look at today's video playback, computer stats etc.
now compare today with what they had in 1975.

You were lucky to get 3 games over the entire weekend on TV in those days, to say everything was different back then is a gross understatement.

Too difficult to compare.

Bradshaw couldn't see, all-that-well....but, he had REALLY-good receivers.
