What is the deal?
You Americans have 4 great QBs..
6 pretty good QBs..
5 that that are C-..
And then the rest stink..
Maybe it's cause this position sticks out like a sore thumb..
Ha ha.. Us euro trash:)..
We don't have many good strikers in soccer..
Especially from the motherland England..
Arsenal and Chelsea, 2 of the best London teams, neither one has a striker..
I won't lie..
Plus many of them fade faster than the sun..
3. Tennis from 1980 till the rodger federer-nadal-djokovic-Murray era..
Does anyone REALLY think, other than Sampras.. Any other tennis player from these 2 era's, would be able to handle the big four?
No.. Not even Agassi or McEnroe..
Maybe Borg on clay would be ok.. But even Borg would be no match for nadal at the French..
4. Closers in baseball..
Here is the dirty secret about closers..
Alot of them aren't very good..
I respect Rivera..
And a couple of other guys..
But I remember about 10 years ago.. Urbina had a 40 save season and 9 blown saves.. How hard can it be to reach the magic number of 40 saves, when you can blow 22.5% of your save opportunities..
5. Goalies in soccer.. Eg arsenal..

So you say half the league's is above average.
Isn't that kinda the point?
Shouldn't the other half be below average?
1. The heavyweight division in MMA
Talk about THIN- except of course, the fighters
Give me a PPV fight that doesn't have a champion in one of the 187 weightclasses.
Better yet- Try and sell a card without anyone ranked in the top 3 anywhere on the card- and get more than 10 bucks on PPV
3. DH in baseball.
If your ONLY job is to hit, how can you be great if you fail 70% of the time at best?
4. Fox Sports 1
When Randy Moss says you need to try harder, you have a problem
5. Centers in the NBA
Howard, and then a bunch of Power Forwards. Then Bogut

The QB might be the most important position in all of sports..
I just find it amazing that there are soooo many bad QBs..
There are a zillion highly effective RBs.. Alot of great players in the league..
I just find it weird that there can be soooo many bad QBs..
And alot of bad QBs have a 15 year career..
They are kind of like that turd that won't flush..
And then if you are average like cutler or romo, it means you are going to make the play offs alot over the next 15 years..
There's nothing wrong with it.. But it's going to be soooo hard for the sport to expand, cause there's already a ton of bad QBs and its kind of an important position..
At least with strikers in soccer, the position isn't as important..
You can still play attractive soccer if you don't have a striker..
But if you have a bad QB, it's extremely ugly to watch..

You do understand that the cruddiest QB in the NFL is still one of the 50 best people on the planet at that Job on the pro level?
How do you count them as lousy? Not like the QB is the be-all end of success. Not to mention numbers that even Cassel and Weeden puts up would be an All-Pro in the 70s and yards per attempt in the 60s would be laughable today.
Swap Tebow for Bradshaw . . . .
We did forget a quasi-Sports that is HORRIBLE at their jobs.
