The Lounge>*** The Definitive Gannon vs. Grbac DEBUNKED Thread ***

It's time.

The common urban legend perpetuated amongst Chiefs fans is that we would have won that 1997 playoff game with Rich Gannon because he was clearly so much better than Grbac when in reality, that wasn't at all the case.

Let's start with wins and losses.

Code:
	Wins	Losses	Win %
Grbac	8	2	0.800
Gannon	5	1	0.833
Very similar. Let's look at a sample of passing stats now.

Code:
	Pass TD/Game	INT/Game	Passing YPG	YPA	Rating			
Grbac	1.1		0.6		195		6.2	79.1
Gannon	1.16		0.67		127		6.5	79.8
Again, this cross section points to them being remarkably similar. They ran fewer pass plays with Gannon at the helm so therefore appeared to be slightly more efficient but overall, the offensive output was very similar, regardless of who was under center.

Now, let's look at a couple of key defensive stats, since I think we all agree that the 1997 team was driven largely by the defense. This is where things get interesting.

Code:
	Def YPG	Def TO/Game
Grbac	335.4	1.9
Gannon	254.3	2.5
It's pretty clear what drove the Chiefs winning streak down the stretch - the defense got A LOT better as the season went on. In fact, the defense allowed LESS THAN 300 yards in only 2 of Grbac's starts, whereas that same defense allowed only one team to gain more than 300 yards while Gannon was under center.

I have never rewatched a single part of any playoff loss, and I’m not about to start now.

I won't say that was the worst day of my life, but it's sure as fuck up there. Just thinking about it pisses me off. It's great that we finally won the Super Bowl, but we could win the next five and I'll still be pissed about that game. That won't ever go away. I guess if I could stick Elway's head in a vice and turn it until his fucking eyeballs popped out and then light him on fire with a can of cooking spray, and then melt their Lombardi down into a toilet seat and sit on it while I shit on his ashes, it might go away.

But that's probably never going to happen.

This franchise has been exorcised of these heartbreaks. It's okay to look back now - because we now what the future has in store for us - and it was very much worth the wait.
