    Not sure I'd put Batch there..but OK...and Quinn?? What has he done..??? Theoretically he could be a GREAT backup..but so far??? No...and Borges is correct..these are more or less the best...and what else was his point?? (don't wish to read..give any hits to ANY RB article..)

    Not to single out this poster, but just because it offers a good opportunity to say this....


    If you people want to 'boycott' someone, don't ask others to get the information for you. That's like boycotting McDonald's but having someone else buy the Big Macs for you to eat.

    Finding a sports writer in this town without an axe to grind is a lost art.

    Actually it's not the same...a bad analogy...if one person posts it and relates the content to others..it's ONE hit...THAT is all..if many people read that and understand...it's ONLY still ONE hit...as opposed to the MANY going to the original source..and MANY HITS...
    IT's more like one person going to McDs...and giving everyone their food...

    You're asking for info from a site you're boycotting. Trying to argue exactly how to phrase the analogy doesn't change what you're doing. If you choose to boycott his site, don't pump people for info about the site. It IS like asking for Big Macs from McDonald's from someone willing to pay for the so you can say you're still boycotting the joint. If (back to the analogy) someone else gets the guys fries, you're still eating McDonald's. The analogy is fine, whether or not you like the result. As I said, it wasn't intended to single you out.

    Finding a quality STARTING Quarterback is not so simple either

    Come on now,Would you want for instance,J.T. O'Sullivan,Kyle Orton,Tavaris Jackson leading your team? - Its weak for many at #1 as well

    I never used the word "boycotting"...I mentioned about reducing the number of hits to RB..Maybe it's more like going to a library and reading a book as opposed to buying it..It's very legitimate and MANY feel the same way I do. The analogy does not work because in your analogy many pay money to McDs...while in this case..it's one hit vs many hits. .The hits = money in the online case. .I am sorry you do not like that, but many feel that way about Borges. Why should ANY add hits to him when they can get the information in another way?

    Borgey still thinks Bledsoe is better than Brady and he's not budging

    If you want his information, get it from him even at the dreaded cost of a click (which is free to you), since he's earned it. If you are claiming to act upon some principle and don't want him to get money, then don't go for the information. It's really not that difficult.

    And the analogy is just fine. You just don't like it because something tangible strikes a more intense chord than something ethereal like the internet does.

    As for the "never used the word..." I never used the word "mooching", but that too is what you're doing.

    Kurt Warner is a better quarterback than half the starters in the NFL. I like that guy.

    Starters Kurt Warner is better than:
    Chad Pennington
    Trent Edwards
    Jamarcus Russel
    Brodie Croyle
    Vince Young
    Whoever Baltimore starts
    Tarvaris Jackson
    Kyle Orton
    Jon Kitna
    Any atlanta quarterback (presently)
    J.T. O'Sullivan (Kurt Warner LITE)

    So that's almost half. Well, closer to a third.
