In Ben's defense, I think Arians puts the ball in Ben's hands at the wrong times. Play calling seems to thrwart drives frequently this season, even when both Ben and Willie start to heat up... which in turn, makes both of them look worse at critical times.
Totally agree with Drew Brees. Now THAT is a QB that has text book mechanics and protects the football.
Good post Reaper!

I think Romo is underrated, if he has a bad game like Sunday Cowboys are in the tank. Other teams can survive without their qb at 100 percent Dallas can't cause Romo drives the boat.
12-17-2007, 12:32 PM
Brady(offensive line is the key)
Favre(Rodgers can do just as good)
Romo (see last post)
12-17-2007, 03:05 PM
You have an interesting point of view with Farve. He's a likable QB for sure... although, I've always thought it's odd that his receivers get 10 freakin yards behind the defense EVERY SINGLE WEEK. How does that happen?
12-17-2007, 05:02 PM
I disagree about brees Hes a decent qb, but he has lapses in judgement and accuracy. He leaves his recievers in bad spots.

1) Eli manning
2) jay culter
3) "big Ben"
Brady is the man........his offensive line is one of the best but almost all his throws are on the money and perfect spirals....oooohhh and a 65 yard pass the he threw that wasn't lobbed in the air............that speaks for itself...

I've always thought that guys like Byron Leftwich, Tommy Maddox, and Drew Bledsoe got a raw deal from fans because of their boring style. All had CANNONS for arms but seemed to have the worst luck with solid careers blemished by errors at crucial times.

I just had a thought... does the entire pedigree of QBs in the NFL just totally suck as a whole? Seriously, we have 3 guys who are consistent with P.Manning, Brady, and Farve. Other guys show bright spots but I'm hard pressed to say ANY of them will be Hall of Fame QBs other than these 3.
I just can't help but think of ten years ago when I could watch Young, Kelly, Aikmen, Montana, Elway, Marino, Farve in his prime, and a young Kurt Warner in some spectacular aerial assualts in the 90's. Where have all the good QBs gone?
12-17-2007, 05:47 PM
You forgot: Flutie, Esiason, Simms, Moon, McMahon (J), Staubach, Bradshaw, Theisman, and Namath, to list a few from eras past, some not so long ago.
The expansion teams haven't quite had time to get their legendary players yet :P .

Favre had a few good years (MVP years) but other than that I think he's the most overated QB ever. I'll give you he's one tough mofo and has an absolute cannon but has to make some of THE WORST decisions ever.
I think Romo is a little over rated and not worth his new contract.
Then McNabb and McNair. Are they always hurt or does it just seem that way.

With Favre, it's a tough call. When the team gets down by 14 points, which happened quite often over the past 3 seasons, Brett would chuck it into heavy coverage hoping for the best. I have to admit that I've only get see him play 5 or 6 times this year but I'm just not seeing poor/risky decisions with him this year because they're not getting blown out. Maybe someone who watches him more often sees otherwise?

Bassgirl if Bledsoe was still in (and wasn't killed cause he couldn't get out of the way of a sack) Cowboys would be a 8-8 team this year. Where's this supporting cast, at Wide receiver he has TO and the rest are 3rd string recievers at best. Witten is the best tight end be its because Romo can get him the ball. The football that many times is hiked over his head or scrambling for his life. There are not 3 better quarterback's in the whole NFL and the Cowboys got a bargain for the money in someone who can lead you to the SuperBowl for the next 5-6 years is priceless

I also disagree about Big Ben. Feel free to name any qb that has the stats he has that has been sacked 43 times. Problem with the steelers is they are overated as a team, oline even more so.
Whoever said TJackson is underated is nuts, only thing keeping Minny back from a superbowl appearance is a coach and a qb, jackson is really bad.

If you watch brady hes making the same type of throws that you said Ben was making this year. Brady has thrown quite a few long balls short the difference has been Moss has been reeling them in. Im not saying brady is playing badly and definitly deserves the recognition, but if your gonna criticize big ben for making some off throws lets spread the love.

As long as were talking about chuckin it up there dont forget about the king of just chucking it up there, Brett Favre

To give credit where credit is due, Ben has thrown into coverage significantly less than he did last year. He still throws a garbage deep ball so I'll maintain my position on that note.

1) Tony Romo - I need to see him perform at a high level for more than part of a season before I anoint him like everyone else has.
2)Eli Manning - same assessment as with Jackson, at least Jackson wasn't first pick overall.
3) Tom Brady - not really but I hate him so much I had to put him on my list.
12-18-2007, 09:51 PM
LOL Romo will be in the league 5 years and people will still be saying that. He's played half of last year and three quarters of this year
