    • we cannot compare numbers of that era to numbers of today but we can compare them to their era. comp %: Joe was top 5 in comp % 5 times during the AFL days and I think there were 8-9 teams in the league at the time so he was mostly average. his highest season was finishing 2nd one season, next highest was finishing 4th 3 times. Unitas led the NFL 1 time, was 2nd twice. 3rd twice.   Unitas was a 5x 1st team all pro, Namath 1x Unitas was +37 TD/Int ratio, Namath -47 Unitas had record of 118-63-4 as starter, Namath 62-63-4 Namath threw more INts than TDs ONE time in his career(rookie season), Unitas did it 8 times. There is absolutely no comparison btw the 2. This I agree with.  while he didn't have a great career on the field he is the most significant player in the history of the sport.  he helped modernize the game. He sure did thanks to a D that turned Bal over 5 times and held them to just 7 points. If he didn't win that SB he wouldn't be in.  That moment was the biggest moment in pro football history and he as the face of it even though we dominated w/ D. He was great for a brief stretch but injuries robbed him of the chance to be great longer.  Unfortunately injuries count. 1970-73, 75-76 Joe missed games each season. Records below both with and without him: with him: 16-31, 34% without him: 11-26, 30%     He didn't take his team to a championship, a GREAT D took the team to the championship.  Joe threw away the 1967 season w/ INTs and was on his way to doing the same in 1968 before they started passing less and they took off.  he only had 15 TDs in that 1968 season.    Joe was far below 1/1 TDs to INTs.  He threw 47 more INTs than TDs.  QBs who made the Hall that played in 60s and 70s: Unitas +37 Starr +14 Jurgensen +66 Staubach +44 Tarkenton +76 Dawson +56 Griese +20   the only QB who also threw more INts than TDs that played in the 60s and 70s was George Blanda who made the HOF more as a K.   this notion that a -47 TD/INT ratio was normal for great QBs is completely incorrect. he belongs in the HOF b/c of what he meant to the game NOT for his actual on field accomplishments.
