Did Cunningham lead his team to lots of victories? No, not really. Why? Gee, maybe it's because he played in the late 80s and 90s when teams like the Niners, Giants, Bears, Redskins and Cowboys were DOMINATING THE ENTIRE NFL and three of those were IN THE FREAKING NFC East.

Dan Fouts meanwhile was in the much softer AFC, which pretty much got pummeled year after year in the Super Bowl by whoever the NFC put in.

And the talent around them wasn't even remotely close. Fouts had Kellen Winslow and Charlie Joiner to throw to, an elite offensive line and solid running backs. Cunningham had what? Not much...

I was a HUGE fan of Air Coryell and really liked the Chargers back then, and I like Dan Fouts alot, but Cunningham is getting jobbed here.
I thought it was actually a very interesting match-up/comparison.

I took Cunningham, the man was mobile and could pass with accuracy. Fouts, although I was not old enough to watch him play in the day, seems like a poor man's Dan Marino, just couldn't win big ball games despite the gawdy numbers.
