Seriously, there are so many levels of separation here ...
I was around back then, so is it equally insane for others to compare Ben to Bradshaw? Just a question that has to be asked based on your post. Bradshaw has 4 rings and could throw the deep ball consistently accurate. Ben has 2 rings and doesn't throw it deep often, even less now in Haley's system.
Both Swanie and Stallworth were deep threats and gave Ds fits, whereas our current team only has one deep threat, pending the possible split with Mike.
