You guys had one pretty recently. He's a Bear now
Seriously? I'd take Tebow over Cutler any day of the week, and 10x on Sunday. Cutler might have more conventional QB skills physically, but from the neck up, he shouldn't even be in the NFL. I can't think of anyone over the past decade whose professionalism has offended me more than him.
As unconventional and downright crappy as Tebow can be, it's been sad to see him get buried on the Jets bench, after creating some of the most exciting moments in the NFL last year. At least Sanchez earned his starting job this week though, so that should keep the Jets fans off his back for at least another week or two.
Surprising upsets in Green Bay and New Orleans this weekend too. RG3 looked pretty damned promising, and really kept his composure in his debut. And the 49'ers D' proved it's not a flash in the pan either. I thought last year may have been a fluke for them, but perhaps not. Bad start for the Pack.
Good to see AP back (early) as well. They need some decent running backs in this pass-happy league now. Speaking of which, despite the solid pre-season, I wasn't overly impressed with Luck's inaugural outting. They better find a way to hand the ball off a bit more, or that poor kid's arm is going to fall off at this rate. I still think he'd have been better off with a year's tutelage under Manning, despite his maturity and intellect. I guess it's hard to go that route with the rookie contracts nowadays though. Manning sure showed that he's rounded back into form. Hope the old man can keep it up, and avoid any further neck (or bodily) issues.
Weak start by the defending champs too, I might add.
