Quote"I'm not into records, fellas. I'm just into winning football games," Terry Bradshaw, who won four Super Bowls with the Pittsburgh Steelers, told WFAN radio in New York. "The Saints hadn't won a game this season. I'm not into records, I'm into winning Super Bowls. We lose sight of why we play. We play to win and to win championships, not to break records."
Bradshaw also wasn't thrilled that Brees asked the NFL if suspended coach Sean Payton could attend the game, and that the NFL allowed it.
"I was a little upset that he went to the NFL to get Payton back to watch him break a record," Bradshaw said. "I'm like, 'Are you kidding me?' I never would have gone and asked. I thought it was disrespectful to the San Diego Chargers.
Also, Terry Bradshaw took steroids to win games. Drew Brees takes zero steroids...and won a championship...and has records. SHUT THE f*** UP Bradshaw.

I don't know if anyone saw the Buffalo game, but no team ever looked more pedestrian in such a blowout than the Bills. Fitz had bad accuracy and made poor decisions and the pass rush acted in the second half like they were world beaters when KC clearly had actually just stopped trying. The KC defense regularly just stood around and watched guys go in for scores. Crennel is a horrible HC.
Posted 11 Sep 2012There is a lot of hype lately about all the young QBs in the league right now. A lot of it is because the most rookies ever started week one, but about half the teams in the league are starting QBs who are in the first four years of their career. I find a lot of the discussion to be less than credible as it centers around the idea teams are turning to younger QBs because that is what they want. Five or seix years ago there was a lot of talk about how the league needed an injection of talent at the position. Here are the top twenty-nine passers (attempts) in 2007:
So, I bolded those guys who are still starting. That is a third of the list who still has a job. I also put in red those guys who are still playing. That is sixteen guys. That leaves thirteen players who aren't in the league anymore, and I'd say outside of Garcia, Pennington, Favre, Kitna and Warner the rest could still be considered playing age (maybe Garrard). What I take from this is that in 2007, there were a lot of shitty QBs in the NFL and now teams have turned to either better young QBs or the new shitty QB. Note that Leinart isn't on that list, as the Cardinals had already given up on him but should be thought of when considering bad QBs the league was leaning on at the time.
Here is a blurb from Cleo Lemon's Wikipedia page:
QuoteAfter a career as a backup, Lemon started the first regular season game of his career in the season finale against the Indianapolis Colts on December 31. Lemon played fairly well against the eventual Super Bowl champions, completing 18 of 36 passes for 210 yards, a touchdown and an interception. He also led the team to 10 fourth-quarter points as the Dolphins fell just short, losing 27-22.Lemon, who was a restricted free agent in the 2007 offseason, was tendered a one-year, $1.3 million contract by the Dolphins on March 3. He signed the tender on May 29. New head coachCam Cameron was offensive coordinator for the Chargers during Lemon's entire tenure there.
With Joey Harrington moving on to the Atlanta Falcons, Lemon became backup to the newly acquired Trent Green. With an injury to Green in Week 5, Lemon was named the starter for the Dolphins' away game against Cleveland. After shaking off some early rust, Lemon led the Dolphins to near victory against the Browns with several successful drives (including a drive where the Dolphins lost 20 yards on penalties that was capped with a 4th and 1 touchdown). Showing amazing determination, Lemon brought victory within their grasp, with his two touchdown rushes, two touchdown passes, and an impressive 107.3 QB rating, but the Dolphins' defense could not stop the Browns. His next start was in Miami's 49-28 loss to New England, going 24 for 37, with 1 rushing touchdown and 236 passing yards. But in Week 11, Lemon was replaced by rookie quarterback John Beck. Lemon was renamed the Dolphins' starting Quarterback in Week 15 against the Ravens. He threw a game-winning touchdown to Greg Camarillo in overtime to beat Baltimore 22-16, giving Miami their first (and only) win of the season.
I assume this was written by his mom, since "playing fairly well" is a 65 QB rating and he showed "amazing determination" in a loss against the Browns.

Quote08:58 AM ET 08.25 | Tebowmania will not hit the road next week. Jets coach Rex Ryan announced yesterday backup quarterback Tim Tebow will sit out Thursday's preseason finale against the Eagles. It is normal for starters to sit out the fourth preseason game, but a bit unusual for a backup to do so. Ryan intends to have starter Mark Sanchez play into the third quarter tomorrow against the Panthers and then have Tebow finish the game. The duo took all the snaps last week against the Giants, too. "This one, obviously, you want to extend your players, but you're not going to play on Thursday," Ryan said. "With that quick of a turnaround, you're really not going to play them on Thursday." The Jets will use third-string quarterback Greg McElroy and fourth-stringer Matt Simms against the Eagles.
New York Post
I guess we don't want to risk his 35% completion percentage getting hurt. Or, I guess we don't need to see how the WildTebow does against "live" NFL defenses.
