it was an interesting discussion.
i’ve been listening to the dan patrick show a lot the past few weeks. way funny. irreverent. politically incorrect. nobody is safe. i really like it.
today, dan and the danettes (his studio team) threw out a question to the national audience that has had me thinking:
if tom brady and peyton manning are the two best quarterbacks in pro football, who’s number three?
begrudgingly, i think i have to agree with the assessment of brady and manning being the two best. i really don’t like the patriots. at all. and brady is such a pretty boy. and peyton? too mechanical. too polished. too nervous in the pocket. but they are both money. and over the years, they have consistently showed greatness…in leadership…in production…in crunch time…in adversity.
yeah, they are the two best. dang.
i realize there are more than a few people who would fall asleep in the middle of this debate, but it caught my attention. they listed the following QBs as the potential candidates for the coveted number three position:
- drew brees, new orleans
- aaron rodgers, green bay packers
- phillip rivers, san diego chargers
- ben roethlisberger, pittsburg steelers
- mike vick, philadephia eagles
conspicuously missing from their list:
- eli manning (superbowl win was a fluke)
- tony romo (would you really want him in “crunch” time?)
others are simply too young, too old, or too erratic.
so who do you think is number three?
me? my socal sensibilities are being tested…i’m such a homer.
