Your top 5 picks
I was just telling my son the same thing recently. Not only did the QB's get the crap kicked out of them, the receivers got beat up all the way down the field. There was no 5 yard bump rule. If a receiver caught a pass over the middle he paid a hefty price.There are some modern day QBs that are exceptional, but the guys listed played when the rules didn't protect the QB near as much as today. In other words, these guys IMO, while maybe not having greater skill than today's QBs, were certainly performing under much tougher conditions.
