No vote, neither argument makes any sense. RGIII was great til he became an invalid. I'll go with kaepernick, since he's going to the Super Bowl and the rest of these guys can barely win a game.
Posted Tuesday January 15, 2013, About: Peyton Manning is a sorry excuse for a playoff quarterback!
And bucky, Peyton had THREE turnovers, not one. In the end, prove to me that Peyton is a big time playoff quarterback worthy of all the b***s*** "greatest of all time" chatter. You can't, so this will remain unaccepted. Because Eli is the better brother when it counts. Heck, Tim Tebow at least won his first playoff game with the Broncos. He has a better career record in the playoffs too. Manning is a regular season stat ****. Just like Dan Marino was.

rather than run your mouth here liquid, accept it and prove they are wrong. Otherwise ***k off.
We can never truly respect or honor a player while he is playing. It is only after a player retires, and has been retired for a significant amount of time, that we can truly judge their contributions. that's why there's a mandatory 5 year waiting period before you can even consider a player for the Hall of Fame. In Jeter's case, the 5 years is wasted time though. But he'll wait like everyone else. I have watched many of the greats in my lifetime, and think nothing but greatness of those I didn't get to see....but I am honored to have witnessed the greatness of Jeter, first hand, with television, instant replay, DVR, etc. I think reality is the most amazing thing we have these days. There is no "perception" with Jeter. The entire world has witnessed his talent.

Good arguments on both sides, but I always vote against fools who use the word BOOM!, so, vote right.

Hmm...who would I pick. Maybe...hmmm....TAMPA BAY, YA BUNCH OF FOOLS!!!!!

A picture of a guy standing emotionless on the sidelines. Oh yeah, I'm convinced. Prove to me he's not thinking "did I leave the coffee pot on" in this picture.
Why is even getting attention? Lions Falcons and Bengals! That's your only other choices! Dumbest TD of the day by far.
So one of the best teams in Football over the last decade has a chance to reach the Super Bowl this year. I'm shocked.

Not when you're getting hacked and headed to the free throw line all game

Math
Posted Monday July 16, 2012, About: Johan Santana to HOF?
There are certain thresholds players need to cross to get in the Hall of Fame. As you've clearly said in your opening argument that he won't cross them, he won't get in. He was good. Injuries and the failure to produce LONG TERM success will keep him out.
Posted Monday July 16, 2012, About: Kobe's 81 vs. Wilt's 100
To begin with, Kobe had the advantage of 3 pointers that Wilt didn't have. That's an extra 7 points. Wilt also had 32 free throw attempts, meaning he was hacked to death. Kobe only had 20. Wilt also made his shots inside the paint, while Kobe was shooting only 5 of his baskets from inside the paint. Wilt had it MUCH more difficult.
Posted Monday July 16, 2012, About: Kobe's 81 vs. Wilt's 100
But since you didn't actually start it, we'd never know. But in this world, you know, "reality", you can't prove to anyone how 81 is more than 100.
Posted Tuesday July 10, 2012, About: Injuryball is the next Moneyball
And NASCAR owners and drivers would greatly benefit by preventing accidents. I suppose the same argument says computer game makers would greatly benefit by preventing inadvertent code entries. Heck, my own personal life would greatly benefit if you could come up with a method to prevent tire wear so I'd save money there.

You can't prevent injuries. Tiger Woods was one of the most athletically fit golfers in history, but he still blew out his knee. And if you can't prevent a knee injury in golf, you certainly can't in baseball.
That's the great thing about being the Yankees or Red Sox GM though. The finances are in place to pay your talent to stay, or trade for other talent regardless of the price. A handful of teams have big carrots, so to speak.

So we get perennial winners like the Yankees and Red Sox, who can afford loyalty, and we get sporadic winners, like Miami a few years back, who spend it all in one big season then have to dismantle the organization from the top down because they'd go bankrupt otherwise.

And on the other side we get players like Helton who says "I have enough money" and remains loyal to a team that couldn't care less about winning. Heck, thru everything Barry Bonds still could have made more money in Los Angeles or New York, but he decided early on that his first opportunity he'd go play for the team he loved and stay there til he retired. He's a horse's a**, but he was loyal to a team that wasn't winning any championships.
The amazing thing isn't the lack of loyalty in the times of free agency and instant-win requirements of GMs and owners....the amazing thing is that you can still find loyalty in these times.
Posted Monday July 09, 2012, About: What position player type is the most important?
Which player is involved in the most plays, other than catching pitches thrown where they tell the pitcher to throw them? First base. Which position requires the most athleticism? Shortstop. By far. I'll take the athlete. The shortstop covers more ground than another other player. (Sure, outfielders run a long way, but the ball is normally of the pop fly type that they simply are running to stand under and catch). The best athlete on every team is the shortstop. And starting in the last 20 years, he's also one of the best hitters. For ages it didn't matter if your shortstop could hit. It was the only position besides pitcher where nobody cared. But now the shortstop is expected to hit too.

Put it this way: Think back to little league. The best player on your team did two things. (1) Pitched. (2) played shortstop when he wasn't pitching. Answers everything.

Sort of like the way you vote against me after one argument, every time? So, I guess you're part of the joke?

Easy enough to name Denver's receivers. It gets a lot more difficult when you try and name Denver's elite receivers. One is coming off a major knee injury, and the other will be double teamed every game. And Brandon Stokley is what? 36? Maybe they'll sign Terrell Owens so they can have the oldest receivers in the game.

And who says Peyton will even play?
