Meanwhile, Matt Flynn - who recently got tossed out like a week-old bag of rotten meat by the Oakland Raiders - just signed a contract with the Buffalo Bills, as noted by the team on Twitter: Tebow hasn't sniffed a job offer from an NFL team since he was released by the New England Patriots on August 31. There are certainly a few quarterback-sorry ... (more)

Take this into account, the bible is a book that has been written, added, subtracted, edited, and revised many times, written by thousands of different hands, through thousands of years, and dozens of languages. From a purely intellectual standpoint, it is the least likely book to contain facts, worthy of quotes.

You can believe whatever you would like to, just don't quote the bible, its clearly silly.

You guys are something else. Try going back and reading it out loud this time. Maybe you will understand it that way. Your rendition is not what was said. The concept of ...it would be better that...

Take a course in reading comprehension during the off season. Wouldn't hurt to read the source document you clearly don't understand and hate as well. Or you could just continue to hate on everyone who corrects your skewed thinking (and that is being kind to say the least).
To answer technically your question, at the risk of throwing pearls before swine (Matthew)....all mankind is under a curse and deserving of eternal separation from our creator, but because of His intense love and concern for the individual he paid the price, which is death, to set us free if only we will accept Hiis payment. If not, we are dead already. Rom 6:3 and 3:3 apply. Then try Rom 10:10 and chapter 3 of John's Gospel. The better read you are, the better thinker you will become. And remember, even those who have been redeemed are still corrupted in this life. They/we are not perfected yet, just forgiven. Try it you may be amazed and like it.

If we have amazing O-line play and good recivers, then Schaub could play well for us. If he is forced to... um... scramble/move/run/think/chew gum and play qb then he is a sack/fumble waiting to happen. More free Pro Bowls for the Broncos average Defensive Ends.

Perhaps the Giants should give Tebow a chance as a backup. Curtis Painter absolutely stinks. At least Tebow was able to win games while he was with Denver. Curtis Painter is 0-8 as a starter with a 59.7 passer rating compared to Tebow's 8-6 and 75.3.

<quoted text>
here is a perfect example of someone who refuses to accept God because he wants to do things his own way. He has even convinced himself or at least is trying to convince others so he will have company, that there is no God. His comments are untrue and are dangerous to all who follow him vice our creator who paid a tremendous price so we wouldn't have to. The Bible has not been added, subtracted, edited and revised and written by thousands. It has merely been supernaturally dictated to 40 plus specific writers over less than a two thousand year period to prove its author is beyond the space and time continuum. It is the fool who turns his back on God and His Word, given that prophecy authenticates God's Word as beyond disbelief. Jesus of Nazareth is the Living Word and came performing many miracles and fulfilling prophecy, to be our "kinsman redeemer". When you understand this, many things come into focus. People who study God's Word are transformed over time to become more like Him in spirit which will be our eternal state. Those who don't, become more aggressively opposed to Him. Probably because they know their time is short and eternity awaits them. God loves the humble but will discipline the proud. And no one is more proud than those who refuse to show appreciation for what God had done for us, thinking they are just fine all by themselves. They will soon find out just how fine they are without God upon their death, which is a penalty for not living up to God's standards.

Good call. Painter may be the worst QB ever in NFL History and the excuse Peyton lovers cling to in order to show how good Peyton is. Relative to Painter, Tebow is a HoFer. No wonder Peyton comes off looking so good, any QB would. Even Cleveland's Hoyer with his winning record.
Consider Brady wins 16 games while Cassell wins 11 the following year, difference of 5 and Cassell is a borderline starter. Now consider Peyton 12 wins while Colts under Painter only get 2 wins, a difference of 10. Rather than saying Peyton is 5 games better than Brady (10-5), how about Cassell is 9 games better than Painter (11-2). The defense rests.
PS have no problem saying Peyton is a top ten QB. Only have a problem when people are so enamored with Peyton that they try to put him with Montana, Brady, Graham, Unitas, Elway, Staubach, Young and a few others. Great QB, just not in the best ever conversation. His INTs don't allow it. More of a Farve, Marino, Fouts kind of guy. Lots of stats but high INT rate results in losses when games count. Most one and does in NFL History.

There are just too amny variables out there to determine just who was the greatest QB of all time. A higher interception rate simply could be due to the fact that a weaker defense would cause a QB to be in more situations where the defense knew the QB had to pass. For instance, a QB who seldom plays while behind in closing minutes doesn't have to take the chances that a QB who is trailing has to take. I would not call Manning's int. rate high. It is still respectably low although not nearly the lowest. It certainly is not high compared to the league average. Joe Montana does not belong in the same company with the greats as he had a weak arm and great receivers to throw to who helped him get away with a less than powerful arm. Jerry Rice in his prime could make a great QB of any journeyman. Actually, last year, Manning led the NFL with the lowest int.%.

Now go back and plug in the name Peyton everywhere you disrespected Montana. Peyton even played inside so he didn't have to contend with any wind to throw his weak passes offline. And still he throw INTs to lose many big games. Having Marvin Harrison and Reggie Wayne, who are both top ten all-time receivers sure didn't hurt Peyton any. And still Peyton leads the NFL All-Time in one and does. Best offense ever in NFL History with four quality receivers and he still gets messed up inside his head come postseason. Montana was as cool as a cucumber and a pro's pro. If Montana had limited skills it only speaks more to his greatness for coming through rather than choking like Peyton does with all his "great" skills. Ever wonder why Peytons great ability at ready defenses leaves him come postseason. Its because that when he has to play teams with winning records. Even Seahawk defenders were shocked at his inability to read their basic coverages. Think the cats out of the bag on his so called brilliance. Peyton is a media creation who loses to winning teams, even last year his record setting Broncos beat up on the second worse schedule in the league and lost to 3 of 4 winning teams in the AFC which was weaker than the NFC. Put Peyton in a Texas hold 'em game with the winning hand and he would throw away the winning cards. It what he does. He has the physical skills, he just lacks the mental toughness. INTs at crucial moments show that. Oh yeah, and a safety and a fumble and another INT in his latest SB debacle. Very good QB just not the cream of the crop. QB stats are inflated when you got a dome, top ten HoF receivers and a great offensive line that protects you. But inflated stats don't win championships. You want to place Peyton where he belongs, somewhere in the 5-10 range of all-time QBs fine. But when you try to elevate him into the top three, someone has got to identify why his numbers are inflated and how he messes up at the most opportune times. Media is manipulating you to make a buck. Wise up, unless you like being...

Montana had more of an offense,(recievers included), offensive line, running game and 3x better defense than Peyton ever had. Most teams Peyton have been on have 4 good players propping up the rest of the team's 5 round picks who are starting and playing OK.

Nice try Mr. Myopic.
Two options exist, you are either uneducated or a troll. Will take the position you are uneducated so I will spell it out for you. With nearly 200 games played for Indy, Peyton had the advantage of playing almost 100 games, home games in a dome that has no wind which inflated his stats. His top all-time ten receivers, which no other QB in history had, Harrison and Wayne, also inflated his numbers, both first round picks. His offensive line protected him better than over 92% of all QBs ever, which further inflates his numbers. It also means his team spent their money getting him these offensive advantages at the expense of the defense. That means Peyton had to provide a "value added approach" to win championships. He didnt. He simply gets inflated stats that lemmings go oh and ah over thinking its Peyton that causes the great offensive explosion. He does but only in part while getting credit for the whole. All these advantages coupled with his now playing at altitude which tires opponents out come the 3rd quarter while his team is acclimated gives him an even greater advantage. Yet still he personally blows it mentally come the big game. Notice I didn't say he loses come the big game, because it's a team game. Peyton himself actually wilts when the stakes are highest because he can't handle the pressure (at least that is what his career screams if you are listening). That's a cerebral/mental toughness problem. One that can be worked out with a sports psychologist like Greg Maddux used to solidify his greatness as opposed to a pseudo greatness created by the media for Peyton. Very gifted physically just a lightweight mentally. You are aware that Peyton took his Oline and receivers with him on away games right? That means he still had two of his three advantages that other QBs didn't have. Best way to make money is to bet that Peyton will get his team to the playoffs but will lose in the postseason because of his own actions. Amazing how many kids you could put through college with this one piece of information.

Think you missed it big time. What you said is not true. Evil either leaves out parts or mangles the true message. See examples by the serpent in the garden (Genesis) and the temptation of Christ for 40 days by Satan (synoptic Gospels). Hope you just messed up. Giving you the benefit of the doubt. Children have a special meaning to God and those who do them harm earn for themselves an enormous curse.
It should read...thou shalt not covet they neighbor's wife or anything that is thy neighbors. The emphasis on wife is to raise the value of the marriage covenant relationship which is a symbol of the relationship between Christ and His Church. And here is another great part about God, He loves you so much even in your current ungodly state that He was willing to suffer on a cross to the point of death to crack your selfish attitude AND he will give you until you die to figure out that it's your choice if you want to live with Him forever or somewhere else where He doesn't provide a perfect climate and blessings. Problem is you never know when you are going to die so it's best to choose while you can. Can you imagine someone dieing in your place and you refuse to accept His resolving you of a penalty due you? So now you have to make that payment yourself with your own life. At some point God will stop pounding on your mind and heart about your options and His love for you (like a father would) and give you over to the sins and depravity you have committed yourself to. Try reading the Book of John just once and see if it doesn't melt that hard heart of yours. Continual reading will help melt it further. When you finally do accept Him you will become a child of the true King of the universe and endowed with more than words can express. And it won't hurt a bit. You will be transformed, happy and the better for it.
The good news is that you give me the platform to reach so many others even if you fail to make a wise choice yourself. For that I thank you.

I'll let you take the 69 position in a Frisco disco and spell it out for you. Brady (your crush) also had comparable elite OL blocking and fine WR talent (ever hear of a guy named Randy Moss?).

As for your dome argument, how can you explain Manning's epic passing success playing home games outside in cold, windy Denver? You're gonna want to consult with Janitor and TNS on that one. Maybe give Dave a call too.
