    That's not comaprable at all. Mind you, I have no qualms whatsoever about what the Patriots have done this year in that regard, but still, to make that comparison is stupid.

    I have heard of it. It's hard to tell the serious threads from the sarcastic ones sometimes though.

    How bout GREEN BAY then? Is that a fairer comparison.

    Looks like LORD FARVE was winging touchdowns passes with 5:38 left and up 28-zip

    See? more people than me took it seriously. It's not a great post if taken seriously dude. There's no comparison.

    The only starter the Bolts should have rested last night was their doofus, gutless, weak-in-the-knees QB.

    Rivers might suck, but he's not as bad as Eli Manning, plus they essentially got a pick that became the best defensive player in the NFL the following year. The Chargers did OK. Big Ben is the best QB in that draft but at the time he was a distant third.

    Rivers does indeed suck, but I have to disagree with the Eli Manning part of your post. Manning is hardly lighting it up, but I'd take him over Rivers any day. Rivers is just mind-numbingly awful.

    Because it was the 1st quarter and not 1/2 way thru the 4th with a five touchdown lead.

    Wait, you mean they didn't? Gates and Tomlinson certainly didn't play once they had that lead.

    And both of those quarterbacks together aren't worth a Drew Brees.
