QB's that could have been stars !!!

I like Hebert and Krieg as for Cunninham I feel like it was the injury that did him in as was the case with Bert Jones. Danny White in my opinion had all the support he needed, he just couldn't get past the NFC chamionship game. Now Hogeboom will be better known as First Survivor to find the "Hidden Immunity Idol" and use it over what he did on the Gridiron. I will not comment on Jim Harbaugh because I am a Colts fan I believe without captain comeback we may never have come out of the funk that had incased us since we ran out of Baltimore in the middle of the night. Brian Sipe is the best example I have seen yet better than any of mine. This guy put up some numbers in 1980 that few will compare to 4,132 yards and 30 touchdowns and he did this with the Browns. Steve Bartkowski is the sole reason Walter Peyton was so good. Otherwise Peyton would have been drafted by the Falcons. He had two seasons back to back with 30+ touchdowns playing for tha Atlanta Falcons that alone qualifies him as one who could have been. As for Archie Manning here is where I believe he self destructed: 125 touchdowns and 173 interceptions. All in all this was great list but I don';t expect nothing less of my buddy KappaKidToo.Cool

QB's that could have been stars !!!

Hey Minder. I'm always willing and able to help a fellow Colt fan! The QBs on my list have all had some degree of success. However each of them could have gone on to bigger and better headlines and perhaps some consideration for the HOF if they only had a better supporting cast around them....

  1. Bobby Hebert
  2. Randall Cunnigham
  3. Bert Jones
  4. Danny White
  5. Dave Krieg
  6. Gary Hogeboom
  7. Jim Harbaugh
  8. Brian Sipe
  9. Archie Manning
  10. Steve Batkowski

That's my ten. I'll be interested to hear whether people agree or disagree.

QB's that could have been stars !!!

Jim Hart played for Cardinals and the Redskins. Decent numbers but on a better team he would have been an immortal.

Niel Lomax another talented QB that played for the old Stl Cardinals. Many said he was "too soft" to have made it as a great one. His arm strength was far above average. His accuracy was Marino like. He was a victim of a bad organization.

Don Strock not on bad team but had to compete for a job with the likes of Bob Griese and Dan Marino. This guy still holds many passing records for Virgina Tech. if he would have a chance to develop with a team he would have been a household name.

Chris Chandler is the premier example of a player who could have been a super star if on a good team.. Here is a list of teams he played for: Colts 88-90, Buccaneers 1990-1991, Cardinals 1991-93, Rams 1993, Houston Oilers 1995-1996, Falcons 1997-2002 he actually pro bowled and took this average team to a Super Bowl. He also played for the Bears during their QB carousele years.

Steve Spurrier played for the 49'rs during the 70's when they were considered one of the worste franchises in the NFL. We all know about this guys football mind.

Thats my first 5 I'm looking for some lists from others before I continue. Help me out and post a name or two.
