Another "Sean Salisbury is dumb" comment.

Postby Mercer Boy » Sun Nov 14, 2004 11:48 pm

He just called Peyton Manning "The greatest QB of all time." Yeah, he's good, and he's having an unbelievable year, but the best ever? Most years he isn't constantly throwing 3 TD's a game. He could get hurt tomorrow and that would be that.

What have you done for me lately is good for some things, but not when you're talking about great players. What a dufus. :-t

he could be putting together the greatest single season by a quarterback ever. I dont think its far fetched to say he could one day be considered the greatest to ever play the position, but to call him that right now is a stretch.

Agreed. I can see kind of where he's saying it from, but he's really pushing the limits by saying that. The greatest QB of all-time should ATLEAST have a SuperBowl ring under his belt, which Peyton doesn't have.

It is not that strange of a comment. I mean it is a QB's job to score, and well he seems to do it better than the rest. And it is not like he is fragile. He rarely gets hit.
Kind of reminds me of the Best QB so far, Marino.

I think Salisbury is getting "best QB of all time" and "way better than I ever was" confused. Peyton is good, but still too early for best ever tag IMO.

I agree it's a bit far-fetched at this point. Could it be possible to say when he is said and done? Absolutely.

He is putting up incredible numbers this year, and his stats have been great the past few years. I do agree lets see what he has won when it's done too.

I do think this is by far the best he has played. He seems to be justifying that enormous contract he signed in the offseason.

The biggest thing I agree with above, is Salisbury is a dufus.

Salisbury's statement isn't without merit, but it is more of a by product of the hyperbole that oozes out of commentators pie holes like flatulance blasting out of a bloated Camel's...uh...well you get the gist of it. One of my favorite drinking games on Sunday's is to take a shot whenever a broadcaster says that someone is the best at something. You'd be amazed how often you'll find that muttered. Salisbury is just following the program: Don't think about it, just pimp it. Manning is the greatest, A Johnson is the best...etc. Wasn't it just a couple seasons ago that Chucky was the best coach?

Agree completely. Peyton is having a great year, possibly greatest ever for a qb and has had a very good career but let's see this guy take the Colts to a Super Bowl first.

i think it is a blanket statement also attached with favre depending on how the stats add up that particular week. salisbury is a dumb former qback jumpin on the peyton manning bandwagon, somehow the patriots have his number though. he could be like marino and never getting a superbowl win.

I guess I just don't get why a Superbowl win makes you a great QB.
Pick three of these that make a differance in the type of QB you are.
1. TDs
2. Passing Yards
3. Two Minute Drills
4. How many points the defense allows.
5. How many points the special teams allows
6. How many points the defense scores
7. How many teams the special teams scores.
8. How many yards your RB gets.

If you pick any but the top three, look up the definition of QB.
The others will determine if you win a game.

1.If your QB scores 5 tds will he win? Only if the defense holds the other team under that.
2.If the QB only gets them close enough to score 1 field goal will they win? If the defense scores or shuts out the other team.
Now which is the better QB?
