Quarterbacks during the Ditka era.....

I was talking to a friend of mine, he being a Detroit fan, and we were both discussing the miserable QB history our teams have had over the years. But I really can't remember too many of our QB's prior to the Jeff Blake/Aaron Brooks year. I remember Tolliver, but that's about it. I tried to look it up online, but no such luck. Could somebody either list some of them for me or direct me to a link. Much appreciated.

Let's see there was Hobert, Weurfell, Delhomme, Tolliver, Shuler and I believe that is all of the QBs that started duiring the Ditka era.

Re: Quarterbacks during the Ditka era.....

I'm gagging and coughing up hairballs over here, thinking about that WASTE of 3 years under "Da-No Coach" Ditka. The scene where Wuerfel sat up after a sack peeping through the earhole in his helmet epitomizes that entire era. The sad part of it all, we were all estatic when AB became the starter -- that's how pitiful the quarterback play had become.

Some very slight glimmers of hope during that time . . . Delhomme, one of the Billy Joe's (Tolliver), and (a year after Ditka) Blake (he got the boot when Haz found his man in AB).

Yeah, he was dumped out with the trash because of Haz's man-crush on AB
