Angry ESPN.com's Page 2 15 best QB's

You've got to be kidding me...

My question is how do you get a job at ESPN when you obviously have no idea what your talking about? Joey Harrington's #12 while they call David Carr's decision making suspect? Gimme a break...


12. Joey Harrington: I've always liked Joey, even when he was getting his brains beaten in and didn't have Roy Williams to bail him out. Harrington has mucho athleticism. He can fling it deep on the move. Roy's addition has helped him blossom. What I question about Harrington is his toughness. Before Roy came along, Harrington was prone to leaving the pocket before his protection truly broke down and before his receivers finished their routes.


David Carr: Decision-making is suspect at best. No command of the game

That is Carr's knock. The Nation doesn't get to see him play game by game, but he is overcoming his early problems this year though. I've enjoyed watching his development and while he does not have a real natural feel for the pocket he is knocking down his past problems with ease so far this year. David gets National respect when we start winning games on a regular basis and he throws 20 - 30 TD's. Until then expect some cynics.

Harrington toughness?????? Carr is the one that got beat up for 76 sacks. Harrington only had something like 12. Give me a break.

All the more reason for us to go out and prove them wrong.

Come on guys, it is page two. There is where all of the writers who can't cut it on the main page write. They always do that shock jock writing, stating something off the wall to get a response.

Also the writer is from KC. Guess he is mad we beat them.

Also at least Carr would know not to throw near Marcus Coleman, (eh Trent Green #8).

Now that is one stupid statement. Bill Simmons who writes for Page 2 is one of the top three guys on ESPN.com. As was Ralph Wiley (RIP) who also wrote for Page 2. Just because you don't agree with an assesment does not mean that everthing there is bad.

enjoyed reading the article thanks for posting. All I would say is that these rankings clearly reflect accomplishments from last year & before. Although painting a fairly broad brush with some current relevency it does not reflect the current group as of week 6 or how the current group excells in the future. That being said, Carr will defiently crack the top 10 at some point if not already.

Ben Roethlisberger: Too young. is also a bunch of poohy. He has the best pocket awareness I've seen since Bradshaw or a Plunket, the arm of Marino and the decision making of a young Montana. Currently, at this moment he should be very close to the top 5 and if not now, sooner than latter

1. Brady
2. Manning
3. McNair
4. McNabb
5. Culpepper
6. Rothlisberger
7. Leftwich
8. Carr
9. Pennington
10. Vick

Come on, does anyone care what a loser sports writer from KC has to say? A statement like that might sting if it came from someone who knows something about the game like Collinsworth or Jaworski. Whitlock knows as much (or as less) as anyone of you that watch football 10 hours on Sunday.

Now if I were in need of an "expert" opinion from Jason, it would be where to find the best BBQ in Kansas City. That's something he obviously knows a great deal about.
