Scouting Report
Assets: One of the greatest players in NFL history. A fearless and always-clutch on-field leader who mixed one of the strongest arms in NFL history with great game knowledge. Was accurate on both short and long passes, both of which he always zipped with authority. Could also create on the run.
Flaws: A risk-taker who would gamble, forces passes, and makes some head-scratching decisions at times. Had some off-field trouble. Was a bit undersized for the position.
Career Potential: Ageless Hall of Famer.
