Yet, Gonzo still managed to bust Sharpes records. And it's even more impressive when you consider he didn't get all those playoff games and super bowls Sharpe had.
So, he's done it with less talent and fewer games.
Clearly, Sharpe is the better player...
The fact he played with LESS talent around him, and with MEDIOCRE quarterbacks means he was thrown to far, FAR more times than he would have been on another team, say Denver. So your argument is pro-Sharpe.
THIS would be an interesting stat: Total number of balls thrown to each - divide into that number of chances the yards and TDs. Sharpe would almost certainly come out on top.
