You never forget your first and my first favorite quarterback when I became a Giants fan was Fran Tarkenton who quarterbacked the team from 1967-72. Tarkenton was traded back to the Minnesota Vikings and went on to lose 3 Super Bowls. He also became one of the top entrepreneurs in the country

I finally got to speak with the original "scrambler" who's written a new book "The Power Of Failure: Succeeding in the Age Of Innovation." Fran opened up about developing the "West Coast" offense in 1967 with the G-men, how he felt about being benched by them when he had never missed a game in over 10 years, his letter to Marcus Mariotta and what you can learn from failing.
