So, susweel jokingly answered my question by saying P. Manning played with a poor OC, behind poor protection and with shaky receivers. Yeah, right. It is manifest that no one can up with any good examples - my point is made once again.
But you saw what happens when Manning tried playing with replacements for some injured linemen and receivers the other night. He struggled mightily. Thank you for giving me another teachable opportunity for those willing to learn.
I don't know if you are just trying to fool yourself, but, just because Rodgers sat behind Farve, gave Rodgers more awareness, better footwork, blah, blah, I can go on, but you get my point.
Are you trying to say Alex is Good, or something, cause over the course of 6 1/2 years, he made a handful of plays??? Wow, just wow already.
What he's trying to imply is that Alex would have been just as good as Rodgers IF he had the opportunity to sit behind Favre. Forget the basic fundamentals of playing the position............forget the instinct, pocket presence, ability to improvise. All that is unnecessary.........all you need is a good QB ahead of you (one that, of course, has never played the position in the orthodox manner).
Manning and McNabb are aberrations of course.......
You're something else man. No he didnt. And neither has ANYONE else said that Smith would be JUST as good as Rodgers.
Let's repeat this in CAP LOCKS so you can read slowly and understand:
PEEPLE R SAYEENG THAT SMITH WOULD HAVE BEEN BETTER OFF HAD HE BEEN PUT IN A SITUATION SIMILAR TO RODGERS AS OPPOSED TO WHAT HE WENT THROUGH HERE.
How is that so much of a stretch to understand? I mean seriously...you don't even have to know jack sht about football to understand something THAT basic.
I can't for the life of me understand why asserting that if Alex was placed in a situation similar to Rodgers that he would have turned out a little better...is somehow "Alex loving."
This is why it's such a pointless discussion. Because anytime anyone has an opinion or view on the matter...it's either "lover" or "hater" or some other dumb sht that has nothing to do with the person's point.
And for the record...I hope the conversation this Sunday is about how TROY Smith and the 49ERS can lead this team to a CRITICAL victory this Sunday.
