NFL Week 7: John Elway's not horsing around

    The Skins will absolutely win at least four more games this year:

    At Miami and vs. Minnesota definitely.

    Could easily see them winning at Carolina and at Seattle.

    Could easily see them beating Dallas at home or Buffalo in Toronto.

    Vs. San Fran, vs. NYJ, at NYG, vs. NE, at Philly are all losses.

    The Skins have a good defense and what should be a solid run game. They need to let those two elements work for them. Having a gunslinger quarterback with no conscience throwing into triple coverage negates those elements. When you're best deep threat is Fred Davis, you should stop throwing deep anyway.

    The future doesn't lie with either one of these guys anyway.

    Uh oh. Now you've done it.

    Or the fact that a team quarterbacked by Beck has never won a NFL game.

    93D, I have a simple question for you: If Roethlisberger had played for the Cleveland Browns in 2004, would they have gone 15-1 and made it to the AFC Championship game?

    Nope, but they would have been a hell of a lot better than they are now.

    Counter point...

    Roethlisberger on the Cowboys?

    I think they have another SB.

    They would have been better, but still almost certainly not have a SB to this point. And you'd be arguing that, in turn, Roethlisberger isn't as good as Eli. You see why this doesn't work?

    Troy Aikman lost his first 11 starts in the NFL. If you're the Dallas coach, you start 1990 with Bebe Laufenburg because he had more career wins and never look back, right?

    A friend of mine, who lived in KC at the time, flew to Colorado to buy his Honda Accord so he could have the Elway emblem on the back.

    How many years has he been in the league?

    I am arguing that Eli does not suck. That was the post that started all of this (on week six I think).

    So Eli is not better than Rivers? Or are you still saying that?
  12. 93Devil

    Never said that.

    There was a post yesterday saying that the best thing to ever happen to the Chargers was Eli not wanting to go there. I said horseshit.
