    The 49ers had 8 pass attempts for the ENTIRE game. That's a service academy stat. When was the last time that happened in an NFL game?

    I agree. How can anyone say Riger Staubach is better than Vince Young or vice versa? What about Red Grange vs Herschel Walker? You can compare them to their peers but not each other.
