Packers: Jerry Tagge and Scott Hunter vs. Wilson and Wright. This one goes to '88.
Rams: John Hadl vs. Everett. Hadl had one of his greatest years in leading Los Angeles to a 12-2 record. He also had a magnificent career. He wins.
Vikings: Fran Tarkenton vs. Wade Wilson and Tommy Kramer. Hall of Fame vs. two good quarterbacks. Tarkenton gets the nod.
Saints: Archie Manning vs. Hebert. A win for '73.
Giants: Norm Snead and Randy Johnson vs. Phil Simms. Simms is an old-style quarterback who would have been good in any era. No contest.
Eagles: Roman Gabriel vs. Cunningham. Gabriel had 23 TD passes and 12 interceptions in '73, exactly what Cunningham had last season. Gabriel wins on the strength of an entire career.
Cardinals: Jim Hart vs. Neil Lomax. People forget how good Hart's 18-year career was. He gets our vote.
49ers: John Brodie vs. Montana. A tough loss for John.
Redskins: Jurgensen, backed up by Billy Kilmer, vs. Williams and Schroeder. Jurgy is our fifth and last '73 Hall of Famer, and he gets a win here.
Final score: 15-10-1 in favor of the quarterbacks of '73.
