McNabb and Manning

Postby Steve_Mac9 » Thu Sep 30, 2004 12:04 pm

Simple Question - Very good #'s so far but .....

Why is this year different than any of the last 4 or 5? What makes people think that the Jan flameout is not happening this year? Not bashing just asking.

Because that's all they have to keep them going? If they said "oh yeah, we'll do good, and then lose the conference final," it wouldn't sound too optimistic. :~(

Manning - Nothing different this year. He's consistent. Good for 4000 yards a year in the air, almost none on the ground, and ~25 or more TDs. Wayne's emergence as a WR threat does amplify the offense, but I don't think Manning will be any more spectacular than before. As for playoffs, its too close to tell. Injuries could play a big factor, but the only AFC team that seems to have a chance to contain that offense is NE.

McNabb - This year is different because of TO. Not NFL's man of the year by any means, but the upgrade from Thrash to TO completely revolutionizes that offense. Now that McNabb has a top notch WR he's actually keeping pace with Manning and Culpepper (the other fantasy QB elites, who've had Harrison and Moss respectively to aid them). In the playoffs, I don't think its still not a concern. Seattle could win homefield advantage due to a weak division, and looks to be the team in the NFC to rival the Eagles this year. Right now, if those two teams meet, both with high-powered offenses and staunch defenses, its a flip of a coin.

Fair enough - good points so far ...
