The following is a blog documenting two Los Angeles Times editors' attempts to lose weight. It all began on Jan. 10 . Want to completely disrupt work for an hour? Easy. Just ask who is the greatest quarterback of all time. Try it. Whatever ‘s pressing will be put off. Whatever ‘s urgent can wait. (Don’t try this in an operating room). And everyone’s got an opinion. You can easily reel off 10 QBs and get in a fistfight over the question within minutes. But there is at least a consensus over most of the names you’ll hear. Dan Marino, John Elway, Joe Montana and Bubby Brister will always be mentioned. And they should be. Growing up in the Rocky Mountains region, I thought Elway was the savior.

Times NFL columnist Sam Farmer had a lot to say about this season's group of rookie quarterbacks during Thursday's NFL Slam with Mark and Sam, telling former radio personality Mark Thompson that this year's batch compares favorably with the group drafted in 1983. "There are three Hall of Fame quarterbacks taken in the 1983 draft," Farmer said. "John Elway, Jim Kelly and Dan Marino. "While it is wildly premature to make comparisons, this draft could be as good a draft as in 1983, if not better.

The Miami-Dallas game included perhaps the most watched pregame this season. You can just hear the local radio/television broadcasters giving the play-by-play of the meeting between Jimmy Johnson and Jerry Jones. Johnson near the 40 . . . he picks his way through a few reporters and players. . . The crowd is getting think now as Johnson drifts toward midfield, he stays composed, slicks down the hair. He eyes Jones, Johnson leans, extends his hand . . . YES THERE IT IS.
