Steve DeBerg: The Long Journey

OK, I know it has become popular sport around here to constantly rag on B. Duane Cross for his, shall we say, confused statistical analysis. If we're going to be mean to him when he's dumb, we have to give him credit when he writes something good, and I really enjoyed this. Duane set out to find the greatest journeyman quarterback of all time, with these constraints: minimum 100 games, at least four different teams, never made Pro Bowl, and was with one team for no more than half his career. Believe it or not, Steve DeBerg had more passing yards than Troy Aikman, more completions than Johnny Unitas, and a better completion percentage than John Elway.
