skrame: Brubold: The Donks will take the division if Manning stays healthy for 16 games but that isn't happening.

Where's that farker that comes into these threads to remind everyone that Manning is no more likely than any other QB to be injured? I don't want to steal his schtick.

/comment retracted if you're referring to the o-line; I know nothing about Denver's o-line.
/I'm a Bears fan. I don't know anything about o-lines in general.


I'll even say he's the least likely QB playing next year to get injured. He has never missed a game due to injury. The first surgery he had was elective, and he would have played last year had he not had it. I don't see why everyone is questioning his ability to stay healthy, maybe he's a bit more fragile, but he's also pretty good at keeping out of harms way and tough. You don't play 10+ years in the NFL without missing a start and not have those traits.

IAmRight: srhp29: It seems that the NFL player rate of arrest is likely less than that of average Joe. Nothing to see here.

Probably higher than the average person making over $100,000/year, though.


Oh I'd say it's likely way, way, way higher than that particular demographic. But probably not high at all when compared to the population at large.

Is that do to the fact that they are the only 2 Vikings worth remembering?

Hey c'mon, there was that one guy who went on to be an MVP (with somebody else) and that other guy they traded a boatload of picks for and then the five years it felt like they took guys who played at UW in the first round just to spite Wisconsin.

Ken VeryBigLiar: skrame: comment retracted if you're referring to the o-line; I know nothing about Denver's o-line

It's the same guys last year who had to freelance a lot for Tebow's play. Now they have to do a total 180 and run a crazy-precise offense, oh and the center sucks balls.


So basically the same OLine that blocked for the statue that was Kyle Orton for the first half of the season? I don't think bad pass blocking was why Orton got dumped.

You mean the four games where they went 1-3 and Orton cracked 250 yards twice against atrocious pass defenses in Green Bay and Oakland? Orton got dumped because they were losing and Elway and Fox would had nothing to gain by keeping him in.

Point remains, these guys aren't exactly Schlereth, Zimmerman and Co.

The Chargers are high on the list, but they dumb dead weight who do stupid things. VJax and Naanee are gone for a reason, but they still score high...

FTFY

Sometimes it happens that they've run afoul of the law, but they're really far more consistent in the corrected version.

No one said they were. But the "conventional wisdom" is that they are going to struggle to learn a completely new way of doing things for Manning because for 8 whole games in their entire playing career they had to run block for Tim Tebow.

That's stupid talk.
