Funny you said that 76. I thought of Tarkenton because of a book or something he had titled "better scramble than lose." When Verks said Young, I looked at stats and Fran was great for his era, but not as good as Young. I'd be interested to find out how Staubauch's rushing stats compared to FT / SY.

I think you may be onto something there, PF43:

Terry Bradshaw: 2257 rushing yards and 32 TDs on 444 carries - very comparable numbers to Staubach.

Bradshaw is one of the last guys I'd think of when it comes to "running QBs" - it really is a matter of perspective as much as anything else.

Yeah, but Kordel IMO kinda of faded away as a QB.
As for the rest of the info, good job to everyone and excellent research. They were all good running QB, but did they really have what it took to become SB champs? I mean, sure some did really win SBs, but did they contribute or did they ride on the backs of other team members, that's what I'm curious about. From what I know, they all earned their fame, but I'm not too sure.

I saw a piece today involving Young, they said obviously SY was plugged into a fantastic system, with a great team, under the tutelage of none other than the mighty Joe Montana. The PERFECT environment. They also mentioned they wondered how well he would have done in an environment that was less than the perfect one he had. Hmmmm. Sometimes you gotta respect the guys that do well in a mediocre or downright poor situation. Old man Manning, Sanders....any others???

Young didn't fare too well in Tampa during his first 2 years in the NFL (1985-86), and the Bucs were pathetic at the time. As far as great players playing on mediocre to downright crappy teams for most or all of their careers, I can think of quite a few: Payton (most of his career the Bears hovered around .500), O.J. Simpson, Dick Butkus, Gale Sayers, Lee Roy Selmon (still the only "true" Buccaneer in the HoF), Steve Largent (still the only "true" Seahawk in the HoF), and Ken Houston, to name just a few.
