  1. I agree. And not knowing the difference between 7 days and 14 days is also ludicrous!
  2. You're correct. What I should have said was Favre had many many more INTs than any other QB. Period. And he had a very very poor INT to TD score.
  3. He had a lot of interceptions, many many more than he had TDs.
  4. FYI - Clausen sucks even worse.
  5. Impressive stat provided by Favre's agent in case anyone cared. Does that erase all those interceptions that Favre threw?
  6. Rodgers is so much better than Favre. The entire world knows that.
  7. If Geno Smith and Michael Vick are your quarterbacks, you have other things to be angry about besides Rex Ryan's situation.
  8. An excerpt: "In 2008, NFL Films debuted a special entitled, "Top 10 Records That Won't Be Broken." The No. 2 choice? Johnny Unitas' streak of 47 consecutive games with a touchdown pass. The record, which had stood for 48 years, was placed on par with Joe DiMaggio's 56-game hitting streak in baseball. The closest anyone had come to Unitas' mark was Brett Favre's run of 36 games, which ended in 2004. In an era of increased injuries and ubiquitous parity, it seemed safe forever. In 2012, four years after the NFL Films special, Drew Brees blew by Unitas and pushed the record to 54 games. One year after that, Tom Brady made it to 52. And earlier this season, Peyton Manning's streak ended at 51." http://espn.go.com/nfl/story/_/page/hotread141217/nfl-statistics-quarterbacks-devalued-era-favoring-offenses "Records are meant to be broken, of course. But they should also provide structure for comparing different eras, a task rendered nearly impossible by the NFL's most recent passing explosion. Effectively, we're in the midst of the NFL's "Steroids Era," a time when an above-average performance exceeds the best in history and an elite one obliterates it."
  9. It's not important to gain the most yards. Points win games. Score more than you allow. That's important.
  10. Pork chop, meat loaf, steamship round, brisket, T-Bone, Porterhouse...Some agent hands out these nicknames is what I'm thinking.
  11. Not good for Denver, but it is good for New England.
  12. The Colts can definitely beat the Broncos, be it in Denver or Indianapolis. As someone once put it, Denver is ripe for the picking.
  13. I hope not. He is they key to the game. Monster game = colts loss.
  14. Why not? How about a thread on whether the Colts should trade a weekend with Andrew Luck for $20 million in salary cap space. Then they can go out and sign a couple offensive linemen.
  15. Which the Manning fans believe is evidence of his divine heritage.
  16. Right. We don't know the details and we are not the parents of that child. So we should mind our own business, as the NFL should have. How many think of the possibility that AP may not want his kids to grow up like spoiled pukes, like so many children of the ultra wealthy? Idle, with no interest in anything except pleasure?
  17. Thanks to my younger brother, OldManR, for sending me those links.
  18. http://forums.colts.com/topic/7921-so-lets-say-andrew-luck-plays-for-us-for-20-years/ http://forums.colts.com/topic/2992-luck-has-a-built-in-polian-manning-connection-i-never-knew-about/ http://forums.colts.com/topic/20983-the-book-of-manning-merge/ http://www.newsday.com/sports/football/super-bowl/colts-fans-back-the-mannings-and-giants-1.3493859 It seems to me that many of the posts on those links by purported Indy Colts fans are actually by Manning fans. And they are obsessed by the "legacy" of a mediocre to bad NFL QB. One with half again as many INTs as TDs.
  19. You thought the Pats would lose to Green Bay weeks before the game? Do you likewise feel the Pats would lose in the SB to Green Bay should that be the matchup?
