As a young teenager and Cowboys fan i loved Don Merideth.

And of course thought the Pack were the bad guys.

Bart was awfully hard to beat, of course he usually threw less than 20 passes a game. Why? Because Lombardi Ran the Da** Ball!  haha!

 Bart was the 1st to complete 60% of his paases for a season as i recall.

And he was a real Gentleman. God Bless!

5 championships in a short time was what made the Packers the team to beat in the early 60's.

 in the NFL, And yes there was Pro football before  it was called the Super Bowl . Unitas and the Colts put the NFL on the map in the late 50's and Bart and the Packers took it to the next level after. The Unitas & Starr battles were epic in the early 60's. That's what cemented my love of the game back then.

    • it all depends on what Frank decides to run on game day
    • It's also worth mentioning that Carolina has a top ten OL, while TB's OL is bottom 10.  I've never been a fan of Winston, but it's much easier being a QB for Car, and it's certainly nice to have a guy like McCaffrey to take the pressure off a backup.   Also, didn't Winston have like 5 INTs and 2 fumbles. Pretty hard to win with 7 turnovers. Very surprised Carolina didn't beat them by more. I think Winston's QBR was under 10.0 lol.    
    • Now now this is a bit of a strawman. It's one game, in which both QBs were playing so they had a direct impact on each other's numbers. I mean it was hard in some ways for Allen to put up yards when his D kept gifting him great starting position.   To your wider comparison, Allen is a backup covering for a starter and they have a RB lighting it up. I'm not surprised they've kept it quite conservative. Even then, it's never been an O built on gaudy passing numbers.    Winston.. is when you've found out the answer to "is he the guy", but at least you won't die knowing. Has the arm, doesn't have the QB smarts IMO. I'd certainly rather have the latter than former if I had to choose one. But what's wrong with wanting both?    Again... and I will keep repeating this, why is it so wrong to want to see if Brissett is capable of slinging it when needed. Quite prepared to be patient, but also not going to ignore that he has some worrying shortcomings so far and it's not just his reluctance to push it deep. Progressions, locking onto receivers, a few misdiagnoses of defenses (overly critical of me I know). I'd almost be more forgiving if he was trying to make plays and making mistakes, but he's being very conservative and still making some fundamental errors. In a short span of games you'd live with it, but the hope is that he's going to be our guy for years right?
    • MOD NOTE   I've used my "Mod Privilege" to remove a number of posts that while loosely related to the topic aren't in line with the site rules and would no doubt veer towards topics best left alone.     
    • Correction "The most accurate QB ever tested by Sports Science"   It's not like it's a standard metric across the board.
