That sounds about right. Jets secondary is going to have to play balls to the wall, to even hope to pull this game off. Brees proved you can be burned when your playing your best ball, and Benn is a damn good QB.

Are we going back to stats again? If we must here we go. We have scored more points this year thus making other teams throw more. Hence another variable that factors into the whole stat BS. Our secondary is hands down better this year and just shut down Brady Manning Big Ben ect... We had some bad games after Leonard went down since he called the secondary Defense. Another Variable. Should I keep going

Brady Ill give you, Ill also wonder what the heck happened vs Brady to make you lose 45-3?
45-3 what good secondary gets burned that bad? What team gets beat that bad?
Manning I wont give you, you know they are the top of the IR list in the NFL., and what craziness constitutes a shut down when you only win by 3 pts?
Your saying you dont believe in stats because they don't work to your favor, yet you keep throwing great QB's names out that you beat, those are stats and or facts.

Like I said Our Defensive captain who calls the secondary went down 2 days before the game. Thats one reason Brady had a field day. That has been corrected. Manning may have abunch of injuries but he is still the best QB to ever play this sport and is a gamer. I throw the great Qbs out there because they are great. Stats may support that fact but does not mean you have to have them to be great.

Just so we dont start an argument over a topic that does not matter I will conceed the Colts game. Let me ask you this. If you had Big Ben, Brady or Manning who would you take to start a team for one year. Would you go to the stat book and pick the guy with the best stats or would you take the best guy.

How do you define the" best guy" without stats, please, refine. Is there a "best guy" feeling? a "best guy"color? a "best guy" walk?

Best arm = stats, best in pocket = stats, best comp % = stats. Your not making sense.

Is this a "best guy" because hes good a PS3? what defines "best guy" is ability and performance, um stats. Not talk , or hey I like you.

If I had to choose from only those 3, Id have to take Manning, check the leader boards.

If you would add Brees to that ID take him, hes beating most of their stats. That might seem like bias but its not Ill take a 69% accurate passer over a 54 % passer any day. Higher comp % means a QB is reading defenses better, goes threw his reads faster, and makes the right call more than not.
