Using ANY/A as a means to compare across eras

And if he was any good at it, then his numbers would show it. But he wasn't, he was a good qb on great teams, not a great qb on good teams or any other variation of the phrase. He does not deserve any more praise than being "good" being that he was never especially good at ANY point in his career. 

he was pretty great at it. thats why his numbers are as good as they are in a low percentage play.... especially for the era.

The numbers represent the performance/effectiveness of the quarterback. If the numbers suck, then he was not very effective. Therefore, he must not have done it very well. Its that simple

Using just Aikman’s career years of 1989-2000 as the only reference point, Aikman ranks 15th in ANY/A+ among guys with at least 3 seasons worth of starts, behind guys like Elvis Grbac and Brad Johnson. He finishes tied with Steve McNair before McNair even hit his prime as a passer. 

 

Very damning: despite spending half of his career behind the greatest OL ever constructed, he ranks 12th in sack%+ for that era.
