She certainly has the looks, but does she have her Dad's legendary QB skills? And I'm not talking about his Super Bowl MVP trophy or the couple of pro bowl appearances Daddy made, I'm talking about his unparalled skills in perhaps the greatest original GameBoy game of all time...
The NFL Quarterback Club.
10 of the leagues best battling it out in the three categories all NFL QB's must excel at: Accuracy, Obstacle Course, and Read and Recognition.
Let me tell you folks, Mark Rypien was the king of this game, and I should know. I played this game so often I basically wore down the A and B buttons on my Gameboy to the nub. Had blisters on my thump from rapidly alternating between both as fast as I could to get my obstacle course times down.
This is no small accomplishment for Mark either...at face value, he's easily the worst of the bunch on that cover. I mean look, you've got absolute NFL greats, Aikman, Young, and Elway. Statistical Freaks in Moon, Cunningham and Kelly. Beloved TV announcers in Simms and Esiason. And then you've got Kosar and Rypien. But none of that matters (except in the case of Kosar, much like in real life, he sucked in this game). Rypien tore those others' asses up in this game. Just the perfect blend of speed, accuracy and power. Sure he could never keep up with Cunningham through the obstacle course, and Elway could out throw him by a country mile, but all combined? In Mark Rypien, you're looking at the perfect quarterback...Or at least what the Japanese programmers who made the game assumed was a perfect quarterback.
That's a lot to live up to for his daughter. Luckily she has other...skills? Yea skill. Lukcily she has other skills to fall back on.
