which make some of the long-time records (John Unitas' 47 game TD streak, Jim Brown's career per-carry average, Don Hutson's 99 TD receptions), done in a time when winning was #1, not individual statistics, even more-impressive

Brees has already thrown almost 600 more passes than Unitas did in his entire career, in 50 fewer games, and plays 1/2 his games indoors, on carpet

had Huston played 303 games (like Jerry Rice), his average says he'd have caught an absurd 285 TD passes, dwarfing Rice's 197

recent Steeler hall-of-Famne inductee Jack Butler intercepted 52 passes in just 103 games, one every-other game ~ even in today's pass-n-tab NFL, who swipes 8 balls a season, every-season???

in the name of higher TV-ratings (the League has led the ratings-game since the defensive-minded 1970's, something the League fails to tell you), they've bastardized the rules, and the history of the game, which is why I rarely watch anymore

but keep buying those League-approved items ~ they need to buy light-bulbs for the scoreboards
