Default Utterly useless tidbits

I don't have time to do a break down this week, so I decided to post some other smaller garbage out of the notes I've made. I know its early on in the season, but I enjoy this sort of useless trivia.

Drew Brees is currently on track to throw for over 5,000 yards the current record is 5,084 held by Dan Marino.

Currently, 5 of the previous 6 quarterbacks who played in the probowl wouldn't be getting a return invite.

The highest rated QB in the NFL currently hasn't recorded a victory.

The NFL's current leading rushing unit is likely to be picking in the top 5 come next april.

Panthers kick off specialist Rhys Lloyd has kicked more touch backs already 6, than the Panthers kicked last year.

Johnathen Stewart has less carries but more yards and more TDs than DeAngelo Williams.

Three Titans ones (and a general NFL one):

After 3 games, the Titans are on pace to break the 2000 Ravens D record for fewest points scores by about 10 points in total.

The top 2 INT leaders in the NFL are Cortland Finnegan and Michael Griffin.

Chris Johnson is the leading AFC rusher yardage wise, in a shared role. In turn, the top 6 rushers in the NFL are all NFC.

- Whoever said the Falcons would only win 3 games obviously didn't look at their schedule

- Reggie Bush isn't a bust. Third in the league with 402 yards from scrimmage and 3 TDs, as well as a punt return for a TD

- Brandon Marshall will be considered by some the best receiver in the league by the end of the season

- Who says college offenses don't work in the NFL? The Dolphins disagree.

David Garrard has already thrown more INTs through 3 games than he did all last season.

Eli Manning is developing into arguably the 2nd most clutch qb in this league next to Tom Brady.

Yeah, it's good to see Eli building on last year's playoffs. I always wait when someone has an explosive, out of the blue performance to see if they can continue it. That's why I never really thought much of Garrard, DA, and was slightly skeptical of Eli. But now, he's showing it probably wasn't an aberration, while both Garrard and DA are showing they were flukes.

No doubt about it, no other division comes close. The worst team in the NFC East beat the best team in the NFC West(Was vs Arizona). The team tied for last in the NFC East beat what was thought to be the best team in the entire NFC(PHI vs Steelers). Dallas beat Green Bay which is one of the top teams in the NFC pretty handily. The Giants struggled a bit with the Bills but all that matters is the win. I think the Giants just played a little flat and the Bengals were fired to break out of the slump, nontheless they are still the super bowl champs and that game doesn't worry me. Dallas vs. Skins this week, should be closer than most expect. NFC East games are always competitive regardless of records. I think the Skins have a chance to keep it close. Their defense looks like a top 10 one in the league. Andre Carter and Jason Taylor along with Chris Wilson are giving us a pass rush we haven't seen in forever. Cornelius Griffin, Kedric Golston, and Anthony Montgomery are clogging the run and are good pass rushers as well especially Golston. We have a very underrated LB core. London Fletcher is still one of the best in the middle although always underrated having never made a pro bowl, Marcus Washington looks to be back to old form flying around, and Rocky McIntosh is quietly becoming one of the best young backers in the league. Unreal range. Our once thought of weak secondary has been a strength. Biggest key is LaRon Landry. His stats are down because he is playing the one man deep, but he is basically shutting down the entire field. Doughty is solid but it is reigning defensive player of the week Chris Horton who is look like Troy P out there. Fred Smoot is solid, while Shawn Springs is playing again at a high level, and Carlos Rogers looks to be fulfilling some of that promise. Our offense is starting to click. All signs point positive, although last place in the division still seems likely, although that could be an 8-8 record.

Philip Rivers is also building off of last year's post-season momentum. It is a shame that LaDainian, Philip, and Antonio were all banged up for the AFCCG; a Eli vs. San Diego match-up would have been awesome.

I still adhere to the Philip Rivers > Eli Manning > Ben Roethlisberger ranking.

I agree with pretty much all of that except for one thing. Reed Doughty is not solid. He is below average, at his best. He got beat this week, and gets beat almost any time I watch a skins game. I don't know if he looks worse than he actually is because he is the weakest link in the secondary and therefore gets picked on the most, but all I have ever seen out of Doughty is a below average NFL Safety.

I still adhere to the Philip Rivers > Eli Manning > Ben Roethlisberger ranking.
All 3 of em are great. My projected rankings are:

1. Eli
2. Rivers
3. Ben

Ive said that for 3 years now, and I still strongly believe in that order.


Although right here right now, its unfair to rank it any other way other than

1. Ben
2. Eli
3. Rivers

because in terms of what theyve accomplished, thats the pecking order as of right now. Phillip Rivers hasn't done enough yet to be ranked higher than either Ben or Eli.

But now, he's showing it probably wasn't an aberration, while both Garrard and DA are showing they were flukes.
I was never a big DA fan, but I think Garrard can be a good game manager. But thats all he is really, a good game manager. A poor man's Roethlisberger.

Poor man's is probably an incorrect term, more like well off Roethlisbeger.

BBD, you of all people should not buy into the "QB = Super Bowl wins" argument right? I think what Philip Rivers did last year, on a bum knee, in the playoffs was as impressive as anything I've seen from the QB position. And thus far this year he has been nearly flawless. His 'down' year is not as bad as Eli or Ben's respective down seasons as well.

Never said i did rank them based on that. What Eli did in the playoffs and in the SB, and what Ben did in the regular season trump anything Rivers has accomplished.

His ability to play on that knee shows heart, but it doesn't mean that he's better than the other 2. Eli played the entire year with a strained shoulder that Ben was quick to cry about this past week. Didn't hear a peep about it from him either.

And I think we can all agree that Rivers has the most "talent" on his team. Ben and Eli have done more with less.

Don't get me wrong, I think Rivers is a great qb, but theres no way you can already rank him ahead of Ben or Eli. Both have proven more than Rivers.

You could draw Eli, Ben and Rivers' names out of a hat and rank them in the order you pick them, and it would easily be arguable. They're that close. Unlike a certain other highly touted trio of QBs.

True. I think all 3 teams got exactly what they wanted out of the draft. The Giants got their guy and wouldn't have it any other way, same with the Chargers, same with the Steelers.

Im not entirely surprised Vince is developing into a bust, I thought he would be one prior to the draft, but then changed my mind after watching him play in the NFL his first season. Now i think he will in fact be a bust.

Leinart, I thought he'd be solid. I didn't think he was better than Cutler, but I didn't think he'd suck either.

Always loved Cutler. He's Big Ben with the ability to read defenses.
