I never said he didn't win. But you can't ignore the fact that he exaggerates injuries. Like I said, its overlooked now because he's winning and winning cures everything, but you can't win forever. And if he continues to do that, he can potentially lose favor with his teammates. What about how he said he hurt his toe and Cowher got angry and said that was not the case? Explain that one. Or how he needed surgery on his thumb, turns out he barely injured it?
And in terms of he didn't throw that much in college, no rookie went that far etc...Its not like he threw that much during his games his rookie year. His games, including playoffs, he probably threw for less total throws than most rookie qbs who started 16 games. He increased his workload last year, but his rookie year he was avg like 15 throws a game. How on earth is that wearing yourself out? Other rookie qbs would throw for 25 a game. Even if they didn't play 2 extra playoff games, that still adds up for more throws.
