I think your inclusion of Mitchell needs more justification. Danielson had a longer career and a higher QB rating.

Not to mention ranking Murray above Hansen is also highly questionable...

QB is close for that last spot.

Mitchell started more games than Danielson. Threw for more touchdowns. Had fewer picks. Danielson's yards/attempt is a tick better, but when you do the advanced metric, adjusted net yards/attempt, they wind up exactly the same, as essentially average quarterbacks. Danielson was more valuable with his legs. It's a six of one, half a dozen of the other situation.

Hanson was better. I'm going to make that change.

I think you meant 'Roger' Brown instead of 'Robert'. I might have picked Mike Cofer and Stephen Boyd over Weaver and Fantetti for the final LB spots. And I don't think Terry Barr really spent that much time playing defensive back -- maybe James Hunter instead? I would also leand toward Yale Lary over John Jett at punter...

Jim said...

Yup on Brown. Porcher was right above and there's the error. Meet you halfway on the linebackers and sub in Cofer. Barr's really there as a kick returner, in my on again, off again search for return guys, but Hunter makes more sense. I've got Lary on the roster already.

Stats prove Weaver belongs on list....I am biased on that though

Weaver belongs on list. Stats prove that!
