Although I agree that most great QB should at least win 1, I don’t think it’s a knock on them if they don’t. Football is a true team game, and no one player can carry an entire team. Had the Chargers not #ed up that 06 divisional round, it’s very likely Manning would’ve been a 2 time super bowl loser, with his only win coming at his statistically worst season in which he was carried by an elite D and solid run game. Even then, I don’t think it would change where Manning stands in the rankings of the elite.
Eli Manning doesn’t win 2 without that Defense. Big Ben doesn’t win 2 without that defense.
Oh I’m not.
I’m saying I hope we don’t get to see what this front 7 would look like without Buckner. That’s all I’m saying. We’ve got NO ONE and haven’t had since Steve Emtman able to do what Buckner does.
The secondary will have a lot more pressure on it without Buckner push and presence. He’s the lynchpin of the Defense. Only guy we can’t really replace.
I don’t think anyone is saying Blackmon is as good of a player to Buckner but the Colts were already thin at safety with Blackmon where as they have other good players on the dline. I can see the case for why due to that losing Blackmon COULD sting as much as Buckner. I wouldn’t mistake that for saying Blackmon is on Buckner’s level as a player though.
