Favre's sanity officially has jumped the shark.

    The inconsistency of the run game hurt him as well.

    Everyone says Mangini has the Belichick/Parcells look down....

    I think the guy is a dead-ringer for a mustache-less Holmgren.

    Theisman's sanity just jumped the shark.

    He justifies that stupid run on third down with some BS about the weather conditions and and argues the point that it makes sense to settle for three points, blah blah blah. And then the kick gets blocked. That made my week.

    Theismann jumped the shark a long time ago.

    Theismann: "This is perfect weather for a guy like Shaun Alexander because he keeps his feet under him."
    Kornheiser: "Were else would they be Joe?"

    Marino was better than any of his numbers.

    You really should have watched him play.

    I mean, honestly... are you trying to start something?

    or Heart (hi SC!).

    or Alice In Chains. Preferably while filling Theismann's veins with fatal amounts of heroin.

    He was a better pure thrower than Favre, and maybe anyone. But he wasn't a better quarterback than Favre. No way. Elway was better than Marino, too -- and I despise Elway.

    We talk all the time about "prototypical" quarterbacks, mostly in relation to Vick the Revolutionary and other so-called athletic quarterbacks. But even within the context of pocket passers, Favre is not a prototypical pocket passer.

    Marino was the machine prototype -- and his numbers reflect that. But Favre was a better quarterback, and so was Elway. Some of that has to do with Super Bowls (and defenses -- which Marino never had -- have a lot to do with Super Bowls). But all Marino could do was throw. He could throw the ball -- fast, hard and accurate. But that's it. (True, that makes him among the top 5 quarterbacks all time, which is a testament to his throwing.) But that's all he could do. He was a machine with one great, great, great skill. But that's it.
