Yeah he did use to stare down the receivers a lot but when he was on he would carve up a defense like a Thanksgiving turkey. Those were rare moments though and I don't think there was a time when he backed up to make a pass when I didn't hold my breath. He got awfully hot in '02 though until the defense folded against San Fran and the refs cheated us. They had the nerve to issue an apology the following week which made me even sicker. Besides that, I thought we were on our way back to the Superbowl.
and YA had only 10 td's vs 22 pics.i don't even think Dave Brown can match that.
hey , he did really great for a temp hired gun.....but he wasn't a Giant long enough to qualify.
there were only 14 teams (10 of which sucked) and 2 divisions.....the championship was the ONLY playoff game.
he choked all 3 times......3 times 1 and done. (Romo-esque)
even Kerry Collins had a few post season wins (as an old hired gun....and equatable to YA as such)
this guy was one of the games all-time famous-for-nothing legends. Kelly...Tarkenton....there is
a long list of QB's with equal or better stats that never won anything.
he probably isn't even in the top 10 best of the ones without a ring.
for the record...
26th all-time passing yards. which is very respectable ,but not top 10.
18th all time in TD's (242) pretty good , but still not even close to top 10.
the only thing YA tittle was in the top 10 in was.....
9th all-time in interceptions thrown.
he threw 248 int's , but only 242 TD's
he actually threw 6 more pics than td's.
not even Favre can say that !!
in the '61 championship game we got shut out 37 to nothing - Bart Starr 37 YA 0
in the '62 championship game our only score was a defensive touchdown . YA 0
in the '63 championship game , YA threw 5 pics.
overrated , over-hyped ....regular season stats but big choker in the big games.
I'm getting old watching YA play was really great, his passing ability made the game great!
