Default Play-off QBs

Found this article ranking the play off QBs. I'd like to here your thoughts.



Quote:
Matt Schaub, Houston Texans

Another guy going for his first playoff win (T.J. Yates was under center for the Texans during last season's wild-card victory over the Cincinnati Bengals), Schaub is a very smart player who makes good decisions. However, he struggled to close out the regular season; we'll have to see if he can turn it up a notch mentally in the playoffs, when it's absolutely crucial to do so.

Quote:
1) A special QB: So what is “special”? Special means that the QB can make plays that other QB’s can’t. They can win games on their own. They are like an extra coach on the field. You want the ball in their hands on the final series of a game when your team is behind. They possess traits that can’t be coached. They help to build chemistry in the locker room. They are uniquely durable. Peyton Manning is the model for “special” because he possesses multiple traits. Brady, Eli, Brees, Roethlisberger, and Rodgers are all special. It looks like Luck, RGIII, Keapernick, and Wilson have a chance to develop into special breeds as well. A special QB can hide a lot of a team’s deficiencies in other areas. A special QB makes his line better by getting rid of the football. He makes his receivers better by giving them chances to make plays. He takes pressure off the coaches by making the right adjustments at the line of scrimmage. Unfortunately, there most likely will never be 32 of them. Sure you can still win an occasional super bowl with a good QB but just take stock in the last 25 super bowl winners, as the vast majority were won by “special QB’s”.

you don't put up the numbers he has over his career here & not be a good decision maker. Don't see how you can even dispute that.

its pretty disputable. Dont see how you cant dispute that.

Brett Farve and Tony Romo have spectacular numbers but their decision making is very shaky.

Schaub has a propensity of making shaky decisions in big time games and crucial situations.

Game ending INTs vs the Ravens and RAiders. His choke job vs Indy just to name a few off the top of my head. Anybody who says Matt Schaub is a great decision maker and they are not from local media comes off as some superficial analysis without any real knowledge whatsoever about the team he's analyzing.

Flacco was a drop away from the SB last year.

Ryan has never won a play-off game.

I think most people don't buy into the "system" aspect of our offense, or how QB friendly it is. I'm not saying I agree with you on Flacco, or that you can put any QB here & it will work. But I think our system will make any QB look better than they do without our system.

You're right, I'm off on my impression vs. the numbers.

But still, I'd rather Matty Ice than Joe.

Manning ahead of Brady? Haha. Peyton is the Lebron James of football, king of the regular season, but falls apart in the playoffs. Only 1 championship to show for all his accolades.

Lol, at using 2 of the most TO prone qb's ever and & a whole 3 games to back up your claim...& to make you look sillier, the games don't even back up your claim for good decision making.

yeah, that makes a whole lot of sense...I could just as easily cite the 2010 washington game, the jags & det games from this year & that same Ravens games to back up my claim by your criterion.


yeah, i see where this is going...i'm out

I am a big fan of Flacco. Anybody that can play that well after shooting up some kind of narcotic before every game is....impressive, in a very strange way.

It's a team game.

As far as winning & winning championships go, it's a team game.

I have no problem saying Warren Moon & Dan Marino are among the best QBs I had ever seen even though they haven't won any championships.

At the same time, there's no question, in my mind, that Peyton is the better QB than Brady.

Agree with you completely Fiddler. Wow! I just said that.

If we can prove anything it is that the Colts without a QB of Peyton or Luck's caliber are a lottery team and the Patriots went seamlessly from Bledsoe to Brady.

its better than your blatantly incorrect ultimatum that it shouldnt even be disputed that schaub is a good decision maker.

it most certainly is very disputable.

Why create an alias to talk bollocks? Just log in with your normal username and maybe it would lend more credence...
