I would love to see the Broncos go to the SuperBowl, and lose a close competitive game just so people can say, "See, we told you he couldn't cut it in the NFL."

I would love to see the Broncos go to the Super Bowl, and WIN a close, competitive game, just to see what the the internet in general, and Fark in particular would look like after that.

They'd say "Trent Dilfer" which is what they say anyway.

Mr Guy: Aikidogamer: I have noticed a lot of hating Christians on fark. Not sure why though. Is it mostly evangelical born agains who feel a need to convert everyone? Or do they hate Lutherans like me who believe God makes believers and all a Christian is to do is live as an example.

/ just curious.

Deep down, they know that those people think how they live their lives is "wrong", and people can't stand being told they are wrong, even if it doesn't otherwise change how they are treated. Refusing to confirm other people's choices is threatening to people, especially if they have a nagging feeling that some of the choices you disagree with actually are harmful choices. People don't LIKE people who believe there is A) an absolutely standard, and B) a standard they aren't living up to.

Instead of being happy for someone trying to live better and make choices that are better for the world in general, people get hung up with how anyone can dare call something better.


I think that may apply to vegetarians, hipsters, and people who eat at chain restaurants. Oh, and cops (if they're not beating Occupy types).

xdedd: Joe Theismann is a prick.

I was working on a show in Burbank, CA. Apparently somebody knew him because he showed up on set one day. He seemed pretty nice at first, standing around just shooting the shiat. The topic of football of course came up and I asked him what he thought of the 49ers that year (my favorite team). He looked at me as if I was crazy, turned his back to me and walked away. You would've thought I had asked him if he preferred tan or albino midget porn.

Joe Theismann is a prick.

/49ers ended up winning the SB that year, suck it Joe.


I'd love to say to him, "I saw your marrow on YouTube!"

AdmirableSnackbar: you have pee hands: AdmirableSnackbar: Oh, and Tebow isn't a speed and shiftiness guy like Vick or Cunningham. He's a power runner who is smart with the football. If Tebow blows out a knee it won't change his running ability at all.

McNabb lost running ability over time, though in my opinion he had a great career. McNabb is built a lot more like Tebow than Vick or Young.

If Tebow manages to have a career like McNabb he'd have done pretty damn good for himself. The funny thing is if that happens, just like McNabb a decade down the line when (if) Tebow's abilities go south and he's no longer a viable QB his detractors will say "see, we told you it wasn't sustainable!"

Oddly enough right now Tebow's looking like the best QB to come out of the 2010 draft. He's performing better than Bradford, Clausen, Kafka, Skelton, and some other guy who I can't remember because nobody ever talks about him.


Tebow is already better than McNabb because he doesn't throw at people's feet and has a coach that runs the ball

LOLZ

you have pee hands: For all I know Tebow really is a big strong Ned Flanders but most vocal Christians don't live up to the standards by which they judge everyone else.


But vocal atheists do?

If you stole that, you are a god among men. If you made that yourself, and do not finish it for every QB to start a game this year, then post it in next week's Power Rankings thread, you are an abject failure of a human being.

Here is the list, just to help out:

Drew Brees, QB = Contra Spread Shot
Matthew Stafford, QB = Megatron in gun mode
Tom Brady, QB
Philip Rivers, QB
Eli Manning, QB = a brick
Matt Ryan, QB = Freeze ray?
Joe Flacco, QB
Colt McCoy, QB
Tony Romo, QB = any gun notable for misfiring at inopportune times
Ryan Fitzpatrick, QB
Cam Newton, QB = Heat Vision
Josh Freeman, QB
Aaron Rodgers, QB
Ben Roethlisberger, QB
Mark Sanchez, QB
Matt Hasselbeck, QB = some reliable super old-timey gun
Andy Dalton, QB
Sam Bradford, QB
Tarvaris Jackson, QB
Alex Smith, QB
Rex Grossman, QB = Bazooka
Jay Cutler, QB = BFG from Doom
Michael Vick, QB = Acme Rocket Skates
Blaine Gabbert, QB
Matt Schaub, QB
Matt Cassel, QB
Kevin Kolb, QB
Matt Moore, QB
Curtis Painter, QB = a board with a nail in it
Christian Ponder, QB
Carson Palmer, QB = Elephant Gun
Jason Campbell, QB
Tim Tebow, QB
Donovan McNabb, QB = broken down tank
Kyle Orton, QB = Glass Cannon
John Beck, QB
John Skelton, QB
Vince Young, QB
Chad Henne, QB
Tyler Palko, QB
Kerry Collins, QB
A.J. Feeley, QB
Caleb Hanie, QB = A mace shaped like a football
Dan Orlovsky, QB = Homer's makeup gun
Charlie Whitehurst, QB
Luke McCown, QB
T.J. Yates, QB
Josh Johnson, QB
Kyle Boller, QB = cheap dollar store squirt gun
Richard Bartel, QB
Jake Locker, QB
Bruce Gradkowski, QB = any incredibly boring and unspectacular, but practical and fairly efficient gun
Mike Kafka, QB
Matt Leinart, QB


Some ideas for get anyone who wants to give it a shot.

Flacco = The first generation M16 - Works just fine until it jams (which is often enough...)
