    By the way, I never expected you to take this seriously. My bad. I suck at one-liners, unlike you.

    Pele might be good at one-liners.

    He certainly was, if the reports from Studio 54 are to be believed.....

    By the way since we need more than one example

    R. Grossman 12/3 vs. Minnesota: 6-19, 34 yards, 3 int, 4-(minus 9) rushing, 1.3 rating. Bears win 23-13.

    And another one:

    P. Rivers vs. Kansas City: 12/17 8-23, 97 yards, 2 int, 12.3 rating. Chargers win 20-9.

    You're undercutting your own argument. B. Johnson was equally horrible. I think he had 4 turnovers on his own; one of them was a fumble. All 3 Vikings QBs ended up playing in that game.

    Same as above; T. Green was bad in that game. I don't recall the stats.

    So what you seem to be saying: If Florida's offense is as inept as the other SEC offenses have been, it won't matter if T. Smith has a bad game.

    Because you want more examples, check the winning quarterback in last year's Super Bowl ... 9 for 21, 123 yards, two picks, 22.6 rating that game. And the Seahawks only scored 10 points, despite the help, Steelers win.

    Poor quarterback performances don't always mean that the other team will score a ton of points.

    You said unequivocally that if a quarterback has a bad game, "the other team can score a lot more points".

    Simply pointing out that it isn't always that cut and dried, as you yourself then pointed out, since the other QB was worse. Oz gave you an example of a quarterback playing poorly and winning, and you asked for others since it was a "solitary, unrelated example." I provided two more games in the last 36 days where quarterback played awfully, and yet won the game.

    No, I'm saying that this game is about a lot more than the performance's of Troy Smith, Chris Leak and Tim Tebow. Sure, they'll have an impact, but to say that it always comes down the the play of the quarterbacks is absurd.

    Come on Oz, that is a terrible example because the refs had like a 123 QB rating for the Steelers.

    Just sticking with lousy quarterback performances, nothing more.
