Funky Fact of the Day

From the great Rick Gosselin:

Only five times has a Hall of Fame quarterback lost to a non-Hall of Fame quarterback. Jim Kelly fell to Mark Rypien (Washington) and Jeff Hostetler (NY Giants), John Elway lost to Doug Williams (Washington) and Phil Simms (NY Giants), and Fran Tarkenton to Ken Stabler (Oakland).
Bears or Colts? Quarterback or defense? Don't bet against the quarterback.

N.B. Gosselin counts Favre and Brady as Hall of Famers, which I don't find objectionable. This column was written before Peyton (Hall of Fame) and the Colts defeated Rex (not Hall of Fame) and the Bears in SB XLI.

Hey just found your blog and I really like it. You do an unbelieveable job at breaking down Titans games.

I run the Titans blog for SB Nation at I would love for you to check that out and comment over there. Your expert analysis would be a valuable contribution to the site.
