I posted some stats that showed how Meredith compared to the rest of the NFL during his time.
From 1960-1968(league average in parentheses)
50.7% completion percentage(50.1%)
7.5 yards per attempt(7.1)
14.7 yards per completion(14.1)
5.8% of tds to attempts(5.1%)
4.8% of ints to attempts(5.7%)
74.8 QB rating(66.4)
He was better than the league average in every single category especially in TD%, INT% and rating.
I thought I heard a story about Meredith faking having an injury before a big(playoff?) game. He pretended to have got his face it or something. I think he had a friend in hollywood that hooked him up with makeup to make it look real. The rest of the team got bummed because they didn't think he would be able to play, then he revealed the joke. I tried googling the story, but found nothing. There was a close up picture of his face with a large bandage across it. I am sure someone can dig the story up.
