Archie definitely didn't blow.
He had the talent to be a HoF QB. Fact. He just happened to play on the worst teams of all time. He was sacked 340 times despite being extremely mobile, because of how poorly the Saints Oline played. I mean, we are talking the most dysfunctional stretch of time for any franchise ever.
He lead the Conference in passing on a 2 win team. I think he won MVP on a losing team. I mean...yeah.
