For those who do not know, I am a Jets fan. As a Jets fan, defending Joe Namath comes with the territory. The question stops becoming if a players had the best stats, but if that player was considered Elite at the time. Break Bottles got the same number of votes as Chris Orosz. Bottles was not elite. Orosz was.
Although Orosz had a weird, if not crazy, career arc, I don’t think anyone would have excluded him from a top tier Quaterback. In season 1, he was behind only one quarterback in passer yards, Draxel. He led the league (excluding quarterbacks throwing for under 10 passes) in Passer Rating. In Season 2, Ororsz was given his accolade as Quarterback of the Year where he led the league in Touchdowns, Yards, and Passer Rating, becoming the first Quarterback to earn the Triple Crown. In season 3, he fell to second behind Mike Boss, a sign that Boss’s star was on the rise. Season four and five is interesting because his stats took a nose dive as the Cats looked to utilize their run game way more than their passing game, and while his yards dove, his accuracy never did. Orosz went from the Gunslinger of Brett Favre to the accurate passer of Alex Smith. In Season 6, the Sabercats got him back to a gunslinger as he threw for the league’s third highest in yards while being one of the lowest in completion percentage. Season 7 just sucked.
But what do you make of all this? I make that he was Elite, and threat that teams had to plan for even in his Alex Smith days. Orosz was careful with his ball handling, throwing a mere 87 interceptions in his 3,781 passing attempts. He threw a little over 2% of all passes for an interception. Conversely, Boss and Bronko sit at about the same. And he was considered on par with them.
Just so you understand how crazy good Orosz was, with the exception of season 3, he was a top 3 quarterback in terms of least interceptions thrown. He was dangerously scary with the football because defenses couldn’t rely on him like Bronko, Boss and Pierno to turn the ball over in the air, and his security was second to none. Chris Orosz never threw more interceptions than touchdowns in any season. That’s something that no other quarterback who started as a quarterback can say. Even at low TPE, Orosz was a dangerous player on the field.
It’s not just about the numbers, and that’s what people miss, Defenses hated to play against him and he was the first NSFL Quarterback to really cause GMs to plan around him, especially in Yellowknife. He is up there with Boss and Bronko. If you don’t think both of those belong in the Hall, then ok, but to say Bronko does and Orosz doesn’t is a crime.
As for Wyatt Fulton, the story is simple. Dude created the Yeti and the Yeti were good under him (til Noble fiasco). You cannot tell the story on the NSFL without him. He belongs in the Hall, maybe as a GM more than a player.
writers note: I'm looking forward to when people say that Vincent Sharpei, Boss Tweed and Owen Taylor don't belong in the Hall, because they absolutely do, look at more than the numbers.

So I know some were waiting with bated breath for the new SoTM (and the payments of the old...getting there), but this month is kind of weird.
One of the big movements and personal goals of mine is to see less stolen branding and more original branding for the teams. I would first, love to thank the management at Arizona for agreeing to this.
So, here we go.
WHAT ARE THE RULES?
Well, the deadline of the start of July is bad for me and you, me because my wedding will be two weeks out when we hit july 1st and ending with only 9 days in the month, so the deadline will be July 31st.
Work must be 100% original, if I google and find that logo on the internet or pinterest, they will be disqualified. Pay will be the same, except there is no second place, winner gets 5m
