What exactly was wrong with Blake\'s play that cost his his job? Absolutely nothing. His winning percentage was higher than Brooks. Yes, Brooks played well subbing for Blake, but losing his job to an injury was asanine. If he\'d played poorly, it would\'ve been a bit more understandable, but it wouldn\'t have allowed you to praise a man with a 27-27 record as our fearless leader. :casstet:

When will you people quit talking about win/loss record as if the QB is responsible for these? This game of football is played by an offense, defense, and special teams. This isn\'t tennis or golf. Geeeezzz.

The quarterback earns his leadership role, menatally, by:
flawlessly knowing every responsibility of every position for every play
knowing the key for every play
being able to read a defensive scheme
being always mentally tough- ngunngu: never give up, never never give up

The quarterback earns his leadership role, emotionally, by:
balancing the emotional bank account
staying steady- never get too high on the highs or too low on the lows
investing time and being there for your teammates

Responsibilities of Success
QB is responsible for every play- see it to success

QB gets too much credit for the good things- be humble

QB gets too much blame for the bad things- shake it off

QB is in command of offensive production- job is to score points


Attributes of a QB
desire to lead

charisma of a leader

competetiveness

the will to succeed

be honest in decisions

openness to learning

enthusiasm

risk taker

playmaker

Maybe George Patton could be our quarterback next year.

Trent Dilfer - Won a superbowl
Jeff Hostetler - Won a superbowl

Dan Marino - Never won a superbowl
Archie Manning - Never won a superbowl
Fran Tarkenton - Never won a superbowl

Trent Dilfer- Better than Marino, Manning, and Tarkenton
Jeff Hostettler - Better than Marino, Manning, and Tarkenton

Hmmm, no problem with those statements huh?

I\'m convinced when someone makes a ridiculous statement like comparing 2 quarterback\'s win/loss records and tries to demonstrate how one QB is better than the other, you must not retaliate with \"common sense.\" You cannot win an arguement like that. All you can hope to do is make a more ridiculous statement and hope they will understand that kind of reasoning. I feel since thier brain thinks like that anyway, you might have a chance of getting through to them. In any case...............DO NOT TRY TO REASON WITH THESE PEOPLE...........lol

I\"m just kidding people. Settle down.
