Rick - I never said he isn't a great quarterback. If anything, he's proven that one can throw like a chick and make it in the NFL. I'd put down a fair-sized bet that Femullet Broodmare could beat the guy in arm wrestling.
It was almost as gratifying to see Brenda's prayers in the waning seconds go unanswered as it was to see the look of whiny anguish on Kurt's face.
It certainly doesn't hurt Warner's stats that he has had a pair all-pro level receivers (Bruce and Holt with the Rams, Fitzgerald and Boldin with the Cardinals) to throw to on the two teams where he's had the most success.
Warner's better than Elway, I'll give him that.
Randy Moss is a great receiver - I don't like him. Same goes for Terrel Owens. I can recognize that a player is outstanding without liking the guy just as easily as I can acknowledge that a player is overrated and not like the guy.
There's no direct correlation between the two factors.
Fun Stat Tidbit O' the Day:
Favre's TD:Int ratio - 1.50:1
Elway's TD:Int ratio - 1.33:1
Favre has 164 more TDs and 84 more INTs than Elway. I think most people would love to have a TD:Int ratio of 1.95:1. Of course, Favre didn't part the Red Sea, free the slaves or split the atom like Goat-Boy did.
