Houston, We Have a Problem

When our hero, Roger Staubach, retired after the 1979 season, he was the highest rated quarterback in NFL history. Rule changes and the advent of the West Coast offense has enabled other, lesser quarterbacks to surpass him. He now ranks 17th all time. Oh well, life goes on, records are made to be broken, blah, blah, blah.

The good news is Captain Comeback still holds the record for most wins by a quarterback in his first 100 starts. The bad news is Tom Brady is making his 100th start this Sunday. With a Patriots victory, which is next to certain, he will tie the Dodger's record of 76 wins in his first 100 starts. Brady is a fine young man and a great quarterback, but I'm sure we can all agree that he has no business being mentioned in the same breath as our hero. Pray for the Cowboys.


In other quarterback news, Tony Romo was slated to be cut from the Cowboys roster at the end of the 2003 training camp. Then this loser failed a drug test. God is good.


" I've said this before and I'll say it again. In my lifetime, there hasn't been a player as good as Lilly. And I don't expect to ever see another one. He's that once-in-a-lifetime player." Tom Landry
