There are a lot of young quarterbacks, but there's not a lot of Dan Marinos out there. There's not a lot of John Elways. I think today's game puts more on a quarterback than on any other player. I don't envy them at all. And it's no wonder that their careers tend to be a lot shorter now than they used to be.Steve Largent
