How many years did it take Fran to get it? I'm asking because this was before my time I don't know who he is.

Hey, guess what guys Fran isnt a racist:http://www.seahawks.com/news/articles/article-1/Fran-Tarkenton-‘Russell-Wilson-is-Rookie-of-the-Year’/de40a446-15ad-47e1-ac82-0At the time of his retirement he owned every major quarterback record647dAt the time of his retirement he owned every major quarterback recordb553162
I get that FT was a great QB, but he needs to shut his mouth, since clearly the light didnt go on for him until after his 4th season (going on stats alone, as I never got to see him play) although it was apparently a different game back then (shorter seasons, more run oriented, etc). Just to compare each of their 1st 4 years in the leagueFran Tarkenton:52 games 16-30-3 record for a winning percentage of 30.7661 of 1212 for a 54.5 comp %9409 yds67 TDs68 INTsFree:57 games 24-32 record for a 42 winning % 1101 of 1873 for a completion % of 58.712,963 yds78 TDs63 INTsFrees got more games played, won, higher winning and completion %'s, yards thrown, TDs, and less INTs (plus hes on the positive side of the TD/INT ratio, which Fran wasnt). I guess FT wasnt that good either. Haha. I get that hes earned the right to be senile and crazy in his age but if youre gonna throw somebody under the bus the way he did to Josh, he should be looking at himself in the mirror before he does it.
You guys who didn't grow up watching Tarkenton play obviously don't know a damn thing about him. Posting his stats through 4 years is just dumb.

Anyone who grew up watching Tarkenton as a Buc fan hated Tarkenton because it was so damn frustrating playing against him. He was so damn tough to beat because he was scrappy and would take a play that was going nowhere and turn it into a dagger into Buc fan's hearts. I can't even remember how many times I'd be cheering "ya, we finally got that bastard!!!" just to have him scramble the other way at the last second, run around and throw a pass for the first down. I WISH the Bucs had a QB like Tarkenton.
- To whoever posted the 3 season W-L record for Tark's team - hello, the Vikes were an expansion team in 61 (his first year), with not a lot of talent. Their D was ranked 14 (out of 14), 14, and 12th in those years.
