Influence, you has it.
Very cool. Had no idea. From a quick google search I presume that this "Retro Quarterback" project is it: http://www.footballsfuture.com/phpBB2/v ... 9#10563476
I'll have to peruse it at length. My first thoughts are:
1) It's probably wise you didn't attempt to do an all player Retro POY project. So hard to compare players from different positions in football.
2) Making the cutoff so that it only includes 6 of Otto Graham's 10 pro years had to be a tough decision. Really kills his chance to be POY share leader. You picked a logical point thought with the NFL/AAFC merger, and I'm just so glad you don't limit yourself to the Super Bowl era - so lame, we'd essentially lose Russll, Wilt, West, and Oscar if we made a similar division in basketball.
