So let me get this straight Scotty. In 8 seasons, before and after the Saints when he has started at least 9 games, Jeff Blake NEVER completed 60% of his passes with any team, yet he did it that one year with us? Seems like they were the perfect team for a QB to be able to complete 60% of his passes. I didn't know it was that serious until I read that. AB, after a year under Favre and in the perfect system for a QB to complete 60% of his passes, still couldn't complete 60% of his passes. Wow. I didn't know that.

And experiece is the key? Okay, Tom Brady his first year as a starter completed 60% of his passes, with no pro bowl RB or receiver. Big Ben completed over 60% of his passes as a rookie. I guess experience is the key. Let's hope 6 years of experience will be enough for us to get a 60% completion rate.

Dude, you just set yourself up to have every other poster throw every single name of every failed rookie QB (by that criteria), in your direction.

Yeah I know, but at the same time, I am sick of people trying to annoint Aaron Brooks as some great QB. I am trying to point out how average he is, and show how he has not improved since year one game one. Peyton didn't do it either as a rookie, but some have. So basically, some have and some haven't. I'll take my chances.

Peyton didn't do it either as a rookie, but he also wasn't placed on a playoff bound team, Ben and Brady were. So basically, some have and some haven't. I'll take my chances.

Of those 10 games Blake was in, he lost 3 of 'em right? How come? Since he was in the "perfect" situation as crawdad says, how did he manage to lose 3, to losing teams at that?!?

Musta been the defense...no wait, can't go there, since the defense suffers due to the offense, but wait, Blakie was the 60% QB, so what gives. Somebody spin the wheel! LMMFAO

I thought that was pretty interesting. Two QBs, same season, same team. One was able to exceed 60% on his passes, the other wasn't. And the trend has followed for AB ever since, except he picks up more excuses from fans as the years go on.

Let me guess, your hatred for AB is soooo profound that's way obvious it isn't normal. Did you happen to look at the teams Blake faced while as the starting QB, their winning records, were they good teams that Blake faced? How about the one's AB faced? were they better teams possibly?

See I've had this same argument with other knuckleheads right after that season, so I know the reason for the completetion difference, I remember it very clearly! Blake faced 10 teams with losing records, poor teams and AB faced teams with the winning records, Raiders, Broncos, Rams, Vikings. But you don't want to hear this; You want a way to dog AB and you still are looking. Go back and check whom Blake started and beat you'll find every team we beat with him was under .500, and AB was the only QB to beat a winning team for us that year. HAVE A NICE DAY!!
Blake played Philly, who made it to the division round of the playoffs. I guess they could be considered a losing team. Notice you said played, not beat. The Lions were 9-7 in 2000. Hmm, so that's 2 winning teams when you said Blake played 10 losing ones. Gotcha.

Detroit had a 9-7 record, Philly made it to the divisional round of the playoffs that year. Wow, really, REALLY don't mind being wrong do you saintfan? It's cool. I can go back to ignoring you now.

Sorry, but I do pay attention, very well. I won't get insulting with you, this just proves how wrong you are, yet again.

But again you allow AB nothing.

Medication might help you, ever consider it?
Wait, you insult me when you have revised what you said that was 100% wrong, and I even put it in quotes for you? Okay, I am done. Have a great day.
