I know what an adage is. I also find it to be a misnomer as the people it is used to describe, lose far too often. I don't like adages that are absolute statements, and I find the people that use such adages particularly annoying.

saying "all they do is win" is one of those statements that you can say and no one has a real good argument about it, because it's an OPINION but it's phrased to sound like a FACT. and that's the problem.

Default Re: VY not perfect?

As much as I dislike vy at qb, he played a good game (by his standards) last night. Less than 200 yds passing, but a pretty good completion percentage (once again by his standards). The one int was pretty bad, but no other major blunders, but make no mistake about it, the meatballs won this one due to Brees and company really being bad on offense. 5 ints??? That is Carrr-esque.

That ugly sidearm motion of vy's is going to result in some batted down balls and int's over the long haul though. He got pancaked a couple of times standing in the pocket, which is ironic considering he spends so litttle time in there.

I guess you actually have a pretty good point. That was a pretty good game by VY standards...

We should have run on that play so I blame Chow. Young was actually being perfect and showing Chow he had made an incorrect call. His worship can work in mysterious ways some times.

What QB couldn't torch that secondary? Honestly?

And Carr is too easy of an answer(even though he probably could have)...

I disagree...normally it would be a problem but Young is so tall to the point where throwing side arm doesn't matter.....I can't really ever recall that many of his passes being knocked down.

Grossman?

We should have run on that play. I understand the calls to establish the pass and show we can but after that turn over we were on there side of the field and a fresh set of downs. The Aints D just got off the field. It was time to move the ball on the ground and let them know it was really over IMO.

I disagree, with your disagreement.

IMO, it's not so much because of his height, but more his ability to sidestep and find openings and angles downfield. There were a couple of passes he threw last night that, when replayed in slo-mo, you could really see how low the ball is thrown.

I just figure that the lower trajectory ball would have a greater chance of being batted down or picked.

I think the stats from last year show he had more int's than td's, but I do wonder if many of those were from linebackers or more d-backs.
