having a qb that can control the game is one thing but when he is averaging 180 yards a game, i just cant see how you can live every week with those numbers because eventually a team is going to stop the run and the defense wont be so successful
agreed. Watching payton manning last night engineer that comeback took me back to the glory days. He's clutch! We need a franchise QB!!!! Last time a team won a championship with a mediocre QB was the Ravens. But their D was off the charts. Our D is not strong enough to carry our team to a championship.
Didn't Shaun Hill do this in Week 1. The Colts were not doing much on offense until late in the game. I know, as well as all of us, that 180 yards won't do it if our running game isn't working. However, Hill was against a very solid defense in Week 1 and came through when we needed. He also came through on clutch 3rd downs when need against SEA.
No one is Peyton Manning, but why did MIA lose that game? Was it because of Pennington or was it because thir OC wasted valuable time at the beginning of that last drive.
