Why do you say that..

I’m not questioning you just want to know/understand

The last plane i felt comfortable traveling in was the 727... I wouldn’t go in a 737 until they figured out why they were crashing. DC9 never made a happy flyer either

I've never flown the 757 but I've Jumpseat on them, it's a really nice overpowered airplane, a pilot's dream to fly.

Not to hijack the thread, but I thought this comment was interesting (though I did not and do not have the same sense that there is/was an issue with the 737), Found this chain of dialogue exploring the question (and possibly shedding some light on it):

There were 2 or 3 737 crashes for unknown reasons. One was in Colorado Springs I think. In an interview with a prominent NTSB investigator on the History channel he said he knew why they were crashing but couldn’t substantiate his suspicions. I thing it was finally proven it was a problem with the vertical stabilizer actuator where it would suddenly go to a far left position causing the aircraft to roll to the left and nose in. This happened to a couple of them. I think it was back in the 80’s I think. Anyway i wouldn’t fly on one....it used to drive the agents in our travel dept nuts. After pilots finally learned you had to fly a 727 by the book and not by the seat of your pants like many previous planes they became one of the safest planes in the Air. I remember a middle eastern king? Gave his personal 727 a medal after it stayed air worthy after being attacked by its fighter escort in an assignation attempt.

What I’ve stated comes from old memories and may not be 100% factual but to the best of my recollection is correct

Shampoo sounds like an unfortunate name for a hair product.
You're a ghost driving a meat-coated skeleton made from stardust, riding a rock, hurtling through space. Fear Nothing!

Yes the rudder flaw is touched on in the link I'd provided as well. During the aircraft's earlier iterations.
