    True. Notre Dame gets credit for DeBartolo and Curly Lambeau as non-player inductees so if you’re keeping score with players only SC leads Notre Dame, 12-11.

    Plunkett's career is remarkable, the story of football can't be told without his accomplishments. His stats are comparable to many contemporary HOF'ers, like Len Dawson, Bob Griese,

    Total yards alone should not determine a QB's greatness, the player, his ability to make that game winning drive in crunch time along with the totality of his game should be a part of it too. For instance, Jim Kelly never one a super bowl, lost 4 of them, but passed for 10,000 yard more that Plunkett and he is in the HOF. Sonny Jurgensen also, he never won a super bowl, however he was the backup to Norm Van Brocklin when the Eagles won the 1960 NFL Championship. Ken Stabler only passed for a couple thousand yards more and won 1 super bowl and he's in. Joe Namath is in because of 1 super bowl because he predicted they would win, his stats are far less than any other QB in the HOF. And there are more favorable comparisons.

    Jim Plunkett,
