    Maybe you choose to, but nobody's got to. Thankfully, he kept this team from tanking ala Detroit or AZ.

Had been not played so unfocused and thrown game-losing pics, just one less, and we make the play offs. He went back to being "Back Yard Ben" playing sloppy, without focus and just being a bone head. That doesn't cut it.
    Those came after he got injured. And maybe you didn't hear it but he injured his throwing shoulder? Hello?

    You obviously never knew much about John Elway before he had Terrell Owens as his teammate. He quarterbacked three teams to super bowl loses.

    He did? You mean going from 6-3 to 7-8 isn't tanking? I need to learn this new definition of tanking then.

    If he was playing, then he should be healthy enough to play to win. If not, why was he out there? And John Elway never played with Terrell Owens, ever. Also, the 3 Super Bowl losses by Elway were amazing that he even went as far as the SB in those seasons, as he had pretty weak defenses and rushing games in ALL those years. He worked miracles just to win the AFC in those years. Elway never let out the wet farts of failure as Ben did this season.

    Would you prefer illogical rambling? I'm also fairly certain the board rules apply to the more EXTREME end of things. I'm ALSO confident a majority of the message board would agree with my "psycho babble" comment. You're all over the board spewing it. It's getting old.

    They didn't tank because they weren't blown out. 5 of the 8 losses were by 3 points or less. They lost close, competitive games. They did not tank....

    "Those came after he got injured. And maybe you didn't hear it but he injured his throwing shoulder? Hello?" Dee Dub, not trying to start an argument, but Ben did throw a pick in game 1 of the season. So he left a few out there this year, just was not what we have come to expect, playing wise from him.
