We should really discuss all of the above separately or it just gets messy.<quoted text>
Rivers had a higher completion percentage and QB rating than Rodgers in 2013. Nick Foles was even better with a whopping 119 QB rating.
My original comment was directed at Eric, as he proclaimed Rodgers to be the best QB, and that McCarthy should be in the running for Coach of the Year Honors.
Well, truth be told, Peyton Manning was MVP with 49 votes, with Brady garnering the only other vote. As far as coaches go, Rivera beat out Reid (now with the Chiefs), Pete Carroll (Seahawks) and Chip Kelly (Eagles) for the award.
Not a mention of either of Eric' picks.
Ah, the faint scent of homerism.
Tell me you wouldn't argue my assertion that Patterson should have been Rookie of the year?
That proclamation would be tested, and rightfully so.
Patterson- You can make ‘a case’ for him as ORotY..the same with the other guys too. I didn’t see one for "Flashy P" but feel free. The experts probably went with someone with a full season of work and from my understanding Lacy was an easy choice in a year without a great choice for the award. Lets be honest it wasn’t a GREAT year for offensive rookies.
Either way Lacy and Patterson should become 2 very good additions to both offenses for very different reasons. If Patterson had played and been effective for the first half of the season (he wasn’t) then maybe he wins it. I do know the voters do have “some knowledge” about the game.
Rodgers- I have no problem if you “think” Foles or Rivers are better QBs than Rodgers. Please tell your friends.
Great “stats” from only 2013 to support it too. I can find “a few stats” to say Lacy is better than AD but it doesn't make it true. That being said I won’t get into a discussion about QBs who have been extremely inconsistent when Rodgers has been the opposite. You want to point out a ‘QB rating stat’ and use it against Rodgers career QB rating? I doubt it. Go check highest career passer rating…. actually go compare all the stats of your top 7 QBs for the past 3 years. Should be interesting to see.
