    Nah, he needed surgery, but they didn't know the extent of the injury at that point. Fish should have given VY the option to try it out though. And this was after getting pulled in the Pittsburgh game, so can't blame him for being upset about his coach not having his back.

    Still, as many people said, office hours was the right place and time for VY to express himself...

    In that case I might as well find who had the best QB stats of week 1 last year and then proclaim BEST QB OF 2011!

    Point is, you can't just take a 4 or 5 game sample and then declare someone the best over 16 games of a season. That's just not reality.

    I turned my back on Vince during the Washington debacle. I believe you are wrong, I don't think I ever stated Vince should've continued to start after the Washington game.

    I did question why he was benched during the Pittsburg game. He should've been forced to continue because we had a chance to win AND he should be forced to deal with those adverse situations (where he was having a horrible game but the team still depended on him).


    Based on that logic, we might as well never comment on anything since nobody knows what will happen.

    Vince is injury prone, he's never completed a full season, that is all.

    According to NFL.com

    http://www.nfl.com/stats/categoryst...null&statisticCategory=PASSING&qualified=true

    * To qualify for passer rating, the player must have thrown at least 14 passes/game.


    Sorry but Vince doesn't qualify, he's not on the list.

    If 9 games is not enough for you in one season, then how about 5 years?

    1) VY has a better QB rating in his first five years over some HOF QB's after their first 5 years.

    2) VY's history in the NFL is better as the season goes on every year so far in the NFL excluding 2008 (not a big enough sample size).

    3) We aren't even talking about what he can do for the running game and his ability to run.

    4) Take out 2008 and he has improved ever year.

    5) When the game is on the line he just wins.

    6) He did this with a coach that despises him.

    7) One player out of 9 that played in 1 or 2 games last year had a better QB rating than VY. Volek threw one pass for an 8 yard completion to barely edge out VY's QB rating. That's your argument that you can go and find a QB that had one big game to say he was going to have a great year? LMAO. Get real dude!

    Go ahead Alex and re-number these and put your spin on it. Have you ever thought about a future in politics?

    Moved this reply from the 'Predictions' thread so as not to derail that thread with even more VY discussion...
    If I had to bet, I'd say he continues to be a starter for some other team for a couple more years. He'll be slightly above-average but erratic and unreliable. Same as he was here (but hopefully more mature).

    I think it really all depends on how his relationship with his new coach/team goes at the beginning. If it's a very good relationship then I could see Vince parlaying that into a newfound dedication to the game and from there the sky is the limit. On the other hand, if things don't go his way right off the bat with his new team then I can totally see the pouty, entitled Vince rearing his ugly head. And if that happens with two teams in a row then I think it's safe to say his career as a starter in this league is pretty much over.

    I will be absolutely stunned if VY ever wins a playoff game as the starting QB for an NFL team.

    Just stop it man. The guy's only played in 1 playoff game and now your deeming him as a playoff choke artist?

    Your just a hater. When he's winning on another team it'll just make us look like dumba*ses for trading him. Hopefully our players like Munchak and we don't have a mass exodus just like our coaches did.

    Football is not a dicatorship. Players will want to play where the team is winning, and where they respect the organization.

    I can see why the decision was made on VY. I just think it was the wrong choice.


    Sorry Bud. Your chances of getting a Super Bowl while your owner just dropped dramatically.
