I would say Craig, but from a pure number standpoint, he wasn't anything spectacular. I've never seen him play one down of football so I'm not qualified to give an educated opinion on him.
If you toss out the years where he was 30+ where 99% of backs tail off badly he was a dual threat that averaged over 1500 yards from scrimmage over 7 years. Remember since the 70's the rules have evolved almost yearly to favor the offense, especially the passing game. He retired 20 years ago, you cannot compare his numbers to current players. He pretty much plyed the same years Montana did, try comparing Montana's numbers to current players he never threw for 4,000 yards and 4,000 yard passers are a dime a dozen these days.
