Why ignore the caliber of athletes that Wilson faces vs what Staubach faced in his day? How would Wilson do in 1975 vs those inferior defenders?
I saw Staubach play at Navy, yep, won the Heisman, he was good but not close to Russell Wilson. His navy stats pale in comparision to what Wilson did at the NCAA level.
Do you really think Staubach could do what he did once upon a time vs 2021 NFL defenses, really?
When a guys has Eli, Stafford, Ryan, and Rivers in top 20 off all time, it's as clueless as a human being can be about the NFL. "Yeah I'd rather take one of these guys over a Staubach, Elway, Marino" said no one everImproved athletes on both sides of the ball cancel each other out for a QB.
Better DBs? Better WRs to throw to. Better DLs? Better OLs to protect? ... and on & on it goes.
... and then you go comparing stats from eras 50 years apart again. You're hopeless.
College stats don't mean shit when comparing NFL players anyway.
Are you kidding? With the rule changes that make passing so much easier and QBs basically untouchable? Hell yes.
He could probably play until he's 50 under today's rules.. only a slight exaggeration

I'm beginning to think that raz-on has a life size cutout of Wilson in his kitchen that he talks to every morning.
Niner fan here my favorite player is The Kansas Comet Gale Sayers, but my fav QB Joe Montana.
I just appreciate greatness and know what it looks like, Russell Wilson has been totally amazing, done things never seen before, and only a DUH!!!! wouldn't get it.
Will he ever surpass Joe Montana when it comes to the great QB's, of course not!

Okay crazy guy changing your tune? The other day when I said I have Joe Cool ranked much higher on the all time QB list you said I was wrong because Wilson went to the playoffs 7 of his first 9 years & Montana didn't.
