Peyton doesn't have a choke label. How come nobody is saying Brady "choked" in the AFC Championship last year spending his day overthrowing multiple open receivers? Or the AFC Championship Game the year prior when he basically didn't show up in the 2nd half at all? I think you're holding Peyton to an unfairly higher standard.
And speaking of clutch performances, Peyton has more 4th quarter comebacks than either of those guys.
Jomo, the ring count and the head-to-head record are the only things that keep Brady in the GOAT debate with Peyton. And in a game like football, use of those metrics is not very fair when comparing individual players with one another.
Let Peyton swap jerseys with Brady and Montana for a career, and he'd end up with more rings than they did.
Jomo, is Eli better than Peyton? Why or why not?
Jomo, the SoCon champ this year won't have 2 losses. Glad you feel optimistic about the road game at TN Tech. Unless our offense gets any better, there is certainly a cause for concern for that game. Lol on Peyton. And I'm sure you agree with OG that Eli is better.
I am declaring this Saturday as a must-win for the Mocs. UTC already has 2 losses, will pick up another at UTK, and I am now thinking will also lose at TN Tech. Which means a loss Saturday would probably mean we will finish 7-5 and second in the conference. As bad as the SoCon now looks, it wouldn't surprise me to see us only have 1 team selected for the playoffs. So we need to make sure to win the conference outright. And that starts with getting a big W this weekend.
How many other NFL QBs could lead their team 80 yards for a TD in under a minute in the clutch against the Seahawks' D? The greatest of all time did it yesterday. The look on Sherman's face after the 2-point conversion was priceless. Too bad the Broncos lost the coin flip at the start of OT.
Not sure what Peterson did that was so bad. Yes, keeping your mouth shut is usually a good call. But all he said on Twitter was that he requested a lie detector test. Please tell me how this is suppposed to be newsworthy and/or how that indicates that he doesn't get it? Sometimes I think the media tries to create problems instead of simply reporting the actual news. (Not referring to you, Jay, but the other sites that have this as a headline.)
Thinking out loud...
Judging by postseason accomplishments, Torre > LaRussa > Cox. But Cox had a better career winning % than both Torre and LaRussa. The Yankees were more aggressive than anyone in getting the best talent on the field, but maybe that shouldn't count against Torre. Plus, Cox's Braves were good enough to win it all in several of those seasons and they simply stunk it up in the playoffs. And maybe that should be what ultimately matters. Cox came to my mind first for the Rushmore, but I think you're right, Torre deserves that 4th spot after all.
OG, while I agree with the message on RG III's shirt, my understanding is that the league has a policy against displaying personal messages during certain game-day events. So long as that rule is consistently applied, I have no problem with him having to turn his shirt inside out. Honestly, I think he should have been dressed better than that to begin with anyway.
The Hawks aren't getting more attention for their private-now-public conversations because 1) the owner has already agreed to cash out with over a 100% return...I mean...sell the team due to non-PC comments he made, and 2) the media is more obsessed with Ray Rice and Adrian Peterson right now than Danny Ferry. Plus, the NFL is in-season and the NBA is not.
Phil Jackson, Gregg Popovich, Bill Belichick, Bobby Cox (gets the edge over Joe Torre).
JMC, I saw the WRCB video a while back. However, I thought on the video he said he does NOT intend to offend with his cartoons, which I thought was surprising because it's a complete lie.
Jay, you might need 2 Rushmores for today's topic. One for game shows and one for sitcoms.
"No soup for you!"
"Book 'em, Danno"
Chas, agreed that AD will be a top 5 player in the NBA sooner than later.
"Is that your final answer?" has to be on the TV catchphrase Rushmore.
Tasteless cartoon from Bennett today. Dude has a sick sense of humor.
Kyle Korver: [Luol is such a good guy. And he's been through so much in life that I don't really think this has really even phased him. He told me that he didn't think that Danny or anyone with the Hawks was racist. He said he was shocked when he heard what was said, but that sometimes things just slip out. It was pretty amazing, really. He just wants everything to move on. He wants to get back to basketball.]
Well said. Too bad Ferry is taking so much heat over this.
A good read:
[Then TMZ published a nasty video. Goodell panicked, and, rather than demonstrating leadership, buckled under to the politically correct. I doubt many players in the league, not to mention owners, have any confidence in his leadership. Goodell is a goat, a gutless wonder, a coward.]
I know it's football season, but Team USA won the weekend.
Not sure why Barkley (a former NBA player) is on anyone's NFL pregame show. Desperate for ratings, I presume. I know it has been years since I've turned on a pregame show.
The liberal clowns in the media typically like to exploit things like the Peterson case to conclude that all spanking is wrong. However, the reality is that spanking is a reasonable form of punishment when done reasonably. That said, I think Peterson went too far in his approach this time, but I don't think he needs to serve jail time for this. In a society where more dads than ever don't give a flip about their kids, let's at least be glad that he is involved with his and support his effort to be a good parent to his child going forward.
Ray Rice should easily win his appeal. It would be a very dangerous precedent for the league to uphold a double punishment for the same offense.
I rarely do this, but I turned the Mocs game off before the backup QBs got in the game. Too busy on Saturday with other things. It was a blowout win (as expected), but I could tell that the offense is still having some issues.
