I refer to a recent post (again) bashing Rex Grossman with comments like this:
Grossman is already responsible for seven giveaways, putting him among the most in the NFL. Romo and Vick are right there with six each
Really? Who Cares???
The Eagles are 1-3. Dallas 2-2.
The Redskins? 3-1.
Get OVER the difference of a few turnovers here and there.
For example, regarding the dreaded Interception:
No Team/QB has ZERO Interceptions this season.
Three teams/QB's have only ONE interception this season, which is the lowest in the league.
The (surprisingly) 3-1 49ers.
The 0-4 Rams.
the 0-4 Colts.
That's right, TWO 0-4 teams have thrown only ONE interception this season.
Sam Bradford and A.J, Feely have combined for ONE Interception for their WINLESS Rams in 2011.
The Vikings are also 0-4. Their QB, Mr. McNabb has only thrown TWO Interceptions this season.
Meanwhile, Tom Brady has FIVE Interceptions. That's MORE than the ENTIRE total for the Colts, Rams and Vikings this season. One more than Kerry Collins, Curtis Painter, Sam Bradford, A.J. Feely and Mr. McNabb COMBINED!
HOF'er Tom Brady, of the 3-1 Patriots has thrown MORE Interceptions this season than the 0-12 Colts, Rams & Vikings combined!
Anyone here know that? Didn't think so.
Pro-Bowler Phillip River has Six Interceptions this season. One MORE than Rex Grossman who has Five.
Rivers has lost One Fumble this season. One LESS than Rex.
Rex & Rivers have BOTH turned the ball over SEVEN times this season. Big deal.
Rivers is considered to be one of the best QB's in the NFL.
Yet, he has the SAME number as Rex right now.
That's also the same number as Pro-Bowler Matt Ryan, who ALSO has Seven turnovers already this year.
Pro Bowler and Two-Time SB Champion Ben Roethlisberger? He has NINE turnovers already, two MORE than Rex!
This OBSESSION with the number on INT's/Fumbles lost thrown is laughable. It really is. They're part of the game.
Using Rex's number of Seven turnovers to bash him, at this point of the season is pointless.
My above examples clearly show that. Unless one thinks that Collins, Painter, Bradford, Feely and McNabb are BETTER than Tom Brady. Show of hands. Anyone here think that? Didn't think so
Rex now has the SAME number of turnovers as Matt Ryan & Phillip Rivers. LESS than Big Ben.
Those three are commonly considered to be among the best QB's in the NFL.
I know. I know. Those guys are Pro Bowlers. Rex isn't. One of them has WON a SB. Rex hasn't.
And I know. Rex ALWAYS turns the ball over during CRITICAL moments and those guys? Those guys ONLY turn it over early in the game at NON-CRITICAL times. Right?
It's a team game and right now your team is 3-1.
Stop This Insanity! It's Ridiculous. It really is.
