It is an uphill battle for us. Everyone thinks every above average player we get is overrated(Ward, Ben, Troy, Porter) They might be but every one just comes at us about it(I hate to sound like a b**tch. Eli is very overrated until he succeeds in the playoffs were his brother has failed. He is an above average QB...maybe massively above average, but if his name wasn't manning he may not have gone number one(what GM could live down passing up a manning.) He will never be at the level of his brother.(he is inaccurate and is gets rattled by the rush even more than Peyton this leads to many throws off his back foot and he also backs up when being rushed instead of stepping up.) River has looked absolutely sick, I really think he is the best of the bunch. As far a Ben, he is an above average QB, when healthy he is top ten or top 15 in the league (maybe top 5 but thats stretching it) but when he isn't completely healthy can be the worst and I mean worst QB in the league. However he is more than a game manager. Plus I don't know why that title is such an insult QBs attempt to learn a feel for the game so they can manage it and not look for a big play on every play and just take what the defense gives you. The other factor to consider is that its only Ben's and the rest of these QBs third year in the league they could be much worse or much better down the road its hard to tell.
No announcement yet.
