Who is/was your favorite good player on really bad teams?

Gaylord Perry.
Those were some lean years for the Tribe and yet Perry made it very interesting. Especially when they played the Yankees and Billy Martin would be out at least once every game to have the Umps check Perry for a substance.
Perry was outstanding and although later admitted to throwing the spitter, Martin was never able to bust him with anything.

Archie Manning, hands down.

This guy is watching his sons making mega-millions and the sad thing is that neither one of them could have carried the old man's "Jock."

Withn any type of decent talent around him, Manning would have been the equal to, if not better than, Unitas, Montana, Graham, etc. etc.

Amen to that. As a kid, he was my favorite player, and I think in today's NFL he would have been able to get out of NO and on to a decent team.

Another guy who labored away on a sorry team for too many years was Walter Payton. How do you NOT give him the ball for a score when he finally got to the Super Bowl, but give it to fat ass "Fridge" Perry??? Complete travesty.

I was thinking this exact thought throughout that Superbowl.



Billy Simms used to rock every Thanksgiving, not just like, but almost as successfully as Barry S.
