Old School Tuesday: The Mad scrambler Fran Tarkenton

Fran Tarkenton

Before Kordell Stewart, RG3, Colin Kapernick, Russell Wilson and Michael Vick there was Fran Tarkenton. He was the first in a league of pocket passers to scramble all over the backfield to avoid a sack and threw for completions more often then not. He played for the Minnesota Vikings and the New York Giants in a 18 year career.His list of accomplishment is worth noting so if you get a chance check out his career on wikipedia.


He played in 3 Super Bowls all with the Vikings but sadly did not win one. With out further delay …the Mad scrambler …Fran Tarkenton

Welcome to Smallthoughtsinasportsworld. We keep it fun and we keep interesting and informative. On Tuesdays we go back in time with Old School Tuesdays, on Thursdays we keep it fun by Smallthoughts Trivia Thursday and on Fridays ...it is Smallthoughts: Rant of the Week and Smallthoughts:Rave of the Week and we also post the answer from Smallthoughts:Trivia Thursday. I am a lifelong New York Mets, Knicks and Jets and Giants fan. I root hard for my teams and have rooted for them even when it wasn't and in some cases still isn't easy. I enjoy talking sports, and on here I get to write about it as well. I have my thoughts hence Small thoughts, we will not always agree, but respectfully speak about what we feel. I invite your comments and feedback as well. You can also follow me on twitter @bklynboy59 and facebook Jerry bklynboy Small
