Default Add Clark Judge....

...to my "Idiot Columnist" list.

In an article written on Dec 18th, about pro-bowl invitees and pro-bowl snubs, Judge stated...

Quote:
....Oh, and one more thing: You have to look hard for Browns and New York Giants, too, and the only complaint I have there is ... Derek Anderson? Are you kidding me? All the guy's done is given the Browns' offense something it hasn't had in years -- a pulse -- and he pulled it off with cool, efficient play and 26 touchdowns.

Tight end Kellen Winslow was deserving, too, but he wasn't going to push San Diego's Antonio Gates and Kansas City's Tony Gonzalez off the club. But I could see Anderson pushing Ben Roethlisberger.
ARE YOU KIDDING ME!!!!

Gee, lets look at the Stats:

Rothlisberger QB rating: 104.1 (ranked #2)
Anderson QB rating: 82.7 (ranked #18)

Rothlisberger TD's: 32
Anderson TD's: 28

Rothlisberger INT's: 11
Anderson INT's: 18

NUFF SAID!!!!

What a bonehead. Maybe Ben swore at his kid and refused to give him an autograph.

Yes - Anderson had a good season and was one of the major reasons why the Browns had a winning season, but Ben had what most would call a GREAT season and put him in the elite QB category for the first time in his career. Anderson isn't there yet.

Let's toss the stats aside and look at the players. Stats can be team-dependent, after all.

Anderson has a tendency to get rattled and then throws the ball all over the yard off his back foot. He is still young, and he has played with guts and bravado, but he's not a pro bowl caliber player yet. The biggest part of his story is that the Browns sucked last year and they're average this year. I applaud the guy for what he's done, but I think we're overstating the case by calling "PRO BOWL" next to his name. If Anderson, then why not Kitna, too?

Roethlisberger has come of age and silenced his critics, and has excelled in a year where he has taken more sacks per attempt than any other QB in the league. The fact that he has put up those numbers in the face of such pressure makes his accomplishment that much more remarkable. The guy is maturing into a top tier player. Of the big 3 from that year, Roethlisberger is the only one who has really progressed and developed, and he deserves recognition.

If the Steelers had the Browns' O-line, we'd be 15-0 right now and the Pats would be 14-1. If the Browns had the Steelers' O-line, they'd be 3-12. I'd put the Browns' O-line in the Pro Bowl before I'd put in Anderson.

great points tom. judge is making it seem like ben going over anderson is as big of a snub as ogden going instead of joe thomas (who has doen everything to live up to being the #2 pick in the draft).

^^^^What Tom said^^^^

I think Anderson has been sacked less than 20 times, and Ben has been sacked more than 50,and Ben STILL has better numbers.

Saw this in Dr. Z's Power Rankings:

Quote:
"Had a few scattered mailings from Cleveland complaining about Derek Anderson's exclusion from the Pro Bowl. He answered each one of them with his four picks Sunday, and usually these guys aren't that accommodating."
Glad there is some rationality about Anderson

I can see where he is coming from though. I mean Ben had everything in front of him to have this type of season. If it wasn't for our defense beating and bruising frye, anderson would have never gotten his shot to pull the clowns out of oblivion - but he did get his shot and he did give their offense some umpf!!!!

And one more thing - IT'S ONLY THE PRO BOWL not the freakin' SUPER BOWL - are we going to be like the bungals this year after Ben gets PRO BOWL MVP or would we rather smile and laugh as we go for #6 (after knocking off the patriacheats) and Anderson gets PB MVP???

A player that throws 18 interceptions doesn't deserve a pro bowl.
