Posted Monday August 08, 2011, About: Buy or sell: Vince Young was a smart pickup by the Eagles
Win for the Eagles, because he's low financial risk to them. If it works out great, if not, whoopy.

I don't think VY is a serviceable QB. He needs to thank Michael Vick for paving the way for him and guys like Cam Newton. Had these guy come out 15 years ago, they'd have been made into WR's and other positions.
Posted Friday September 24, 2010, About: Jerome Bettis in top 10 all time of NFL Running Backs
I don't like the discussion about determining a player's greatness based largely on his teams success. Football is not an individual sport, and the position most dependent on the play of your teammates would be running back.

Don't fault Barry Sanders for playing with Scott Mitchell and a patchwork line his entire career, while vaulting Emmitt Smith for running through holes you could drive a truck through.

Football is a team effort, which is also why I hate this new stat of "QB Wins" like they do pitchers in baseball. It's bunk.

If you remember, the defense carried the '85 Bears. But because Walter Payton was on that team that won it all, he's somehow better than somebody who didn't?
