    Steve Grogan and Ken Anderson for consideration, but no Dan Fouts? This list is bullshit.

    The only thing that list gets right is that #32 is the most star-studded number in NFL history.

    At least Anderson had a stellar career. He's not a hall of famer, but he is a 4 time Pro Bowl selection (in the pre-internet voting era) and a former MVP.

    That's not to say he deserves consideration before Fouts, but he seems deserving nevertheless to be at least listed there.

    But Steve Grogan and no Fouts? That is downright insulting.

    Oh, I know. Ken Anderson was awesome, but Fouts was better.

    These lists, whatever they are listing, are always bullshit.

    If I did a list of what I consider the best 50 movies of the past 10 years I GUARANTEE everyone would find at least a couple issues with it.

    Movies are a bit more subjective than sports are. And that's saying a lot considering how subjective sports are in regards to who's better than who.

    Movies are strictly a matter of opinion. If I included Killer Klowns From Outer Space in my top 500 and left off The Dark Knight I'd no doubt receive a lot of scorn, but in the end that's strictly a matter of my personal taste.

    There's no excuse for putting Steve frickin Grogan before a hall of fame QB in a list of this nature, though.

    Don't get me wrong, I don't really care because it's just some random page on the internet and has no real bearing on anything. I'm just pointing out that it is, indeed, insanely stupid.

    Who cares, FOUTS is in the HOF. Grogan and Ken Anderson are NOT.

    'Nuff said.

    Yes, I know that. I wasn't saying they were exactly the same, I was simply making an analogy.

    Since the writer offers NO explanation why a gatdamn HOF QB like Dan Fouts wasn't even mentioned, the only thing you can assume is that it was ALL a matter of personal taste and you must immediately throw all objectivity out the door. Yes, movies are more subjective, but IMO, if you're gonna leave guys off who are PROVEN better than the chosen guy to represent the number in question, your credibility is ****. TO take it a step further, I would argue that if there is a HOF at any of the # positions that are not included that it's a friggin' joke, such as having Manning on the list and Joiner only as a honorable mention. Someday, sure, Peyton will be in the HOF and then he can claim to be the best #18 ever, but as of today he isn't and Charlie is. Another personal bias fail by the writer. ONLY when it comes to multiple players in the Hall who wore the same number should you begin to rank them in whatever bs way the writer did.

    No Dan Fouts, LMFAO. :icon_rofl:

    I can buy Peyton owning #18.

    The only reason he's not in the HOF right now is because he's still playing and is, therefore, ineligible.

    BS List

    #16 - The Great Ryan Leaf
    #13 - Mark Vlasic should be there.
    #17 - What no John Friesz?
    #21 - Darrien Gordon > Tomlinson

    They better have have Bryan Still at #80 with Winslow right behind him.

    How could you guys forget #77 Toniu Fonoti? Eating yourself outta the league should be INSTANT HOF since it's pretty awesome to even think about how in the hell someone could be that stupid.
