    I'm dumbfounded that people actually were impressed by Geno. Sorry, I'll take the guy who throws 1 TD and 0 INT's week in and week out over the guy with 2 TD's and 2 INT's (one in their own territory).

    Geno has shown one thing he can do better than EJ, throw a ball to a wide open deep receiver. Does anyone have the all 22 from NFL.com? The bills receivers were COVERED UP all game. They had 0 seperation and EJ had a defender in his face all game. 16 QB pressures! Unacceptable. And not all of that is on EJ. He ended up getting frazzled though. On the one stalled drive he had the slot receiver wide open and lofted a floater out of bounds in the endzone. He should have picked up at least the 1st down there if not a TD.

    Geno on the other hand had all day to throw against a depleted secondary. You're comparing apples to oranges. To boot, he STILL through 2 INT's and they weren't excusable INT's (IE deflected passes). They were right on the defenders.

    Through 3 games.

    QB 1: 689 yards, 4TD, 1INT, 59.3% completion percentage, 86 QBR
    QB 2: 801 yards, 3 TD, 6INT, 53.9% completion percentage, 65 QBR

    Put Gilmore in this game and he doesn't throw either of those TD's.

    Not really a tough call which QB I'd rather the bills drafted.

    You guys are getting sucked into the JP loserman illusion. He can throw a deep ball, but nothing else.

    Predictable on Carrington. Carted off the field.

    I think they took Steejay out cause he sucked. The injury was just an excuse.

    Dareus and Williams need to play. If they put pressure on Flacco they will be in this game. Rice might not even play

    And before people start talking about, "well well well, he is 2-1 and EJ is 1-2, therefore the jets are way better".

    Well, it is a team sport. One guy can't always win a game for his team. The jets one despite Geno yesterday. The bills weren't good enough to overcome their rookie not putting up big numbers.

    They need McKelvin. Badly. And I still can't believe I am typing those words. Flacco will eat the secondary alive. They have a good offensive line so he'll get time, and Torrey Smith/Marlon Brown/guy off the street can get open against this defensive backfield.

    He threw long passes and got lucky on a few.

    I expect the EJ deep ball accuracy to improve a lot as time goes on. That's something you can definitely get a lot better at.

    The first one was a bad throw. The second was a great play by Alonzo.

    Lost cause didn't hit on TOO MANY deep balls. After awhile he sucked altogether.

    Really neither QB will be anything special.

    You can't say that because then they would target other defenders like Williams for example so they still could have happened
     
  8. If Manuel doesn't look any better in Game #16 than he does now then you go select another quarterback with your first pick - you don't win in the NFL without a high quality quarterback.

    Here are rookie stats for a couple of the QBs listed (and no, not using Dilfer or Johnson...but the actual high quality QB's):

    11 games, 155/293 (52.9%), 1749 yds, 9 TDs, 18 INTs
    9 games, 95/197 (48.2%), 1043 yds, 6 TDs, 9 INTs

    Don't look like Super Bowl QBs...until you realize they are Troy Aikman and Eli Manning.

    Point is, you can't judge Manuel's long term prognosis by 1 season. He may very well not be anything close to those QBs, but the choice on whether to take a QB next year should be made on a) if that is the best player available at the particular draft spot, and b) if that QB you believe will be significantly better than Manuel to justify not upgrading at one of the multitude of positions this team needs upgrades on instead (OG, CB, SS, WR, etc.)

    The last two super bowl winning quarterbacks have disproven the "elite QBs are necessary" theory

    I agree.....

    Flacco isnt elite.

    Eli if he played like when he is hot he would be elite---but he is so damn inconsistant. His two super bowl wins amount to a .500 team who got hot.

    Big Ben also isnt Elite---his first one came as a rookie.

    True I would take Pig Pen.

    Guy isn't flashy but the team he plays for has never been an offensive juggernaut. But he's hard to bring down, tall and fat.

    Hahahaha, the PFT comments section is the place to debate this crap. The word elite is such a subjective classification in and of itself.

    The idea was okay, but boy did that execution leave a lot to be desired. Half-assed and stupid

    Agreed. A tad bit more effort to make the insults (at least for the more notable players) make sense would have made the whole thing worth more.

    I can't see this week going well. Literally the only thing Baltimore has done well this season is the deep ball; if Rodgers plays anything like last week at corner they'll be able to just throw the ball up to whoever he's covering. And I don't have much confidence the offense is going to be able to keep up...

    27-10 Ravens.

    It will be a one score game 27-23 Ravens. Flacco is sporadic with throwing. Plus Rogers will be better this week ( Williams will be playing corner too).
