Say what you want about Dilfer, but he wasn't out there trying to pad his stats to the detriment of the rest of the team.

Right... he just skipped straight over the padding and right to the detriment part.

If you were referring to Brees or Stafford or someone who throws the ball 40+ times a game no matter the situation I could see it but you are referring to Rodgers who doesn't pad his stats at all so you are just full of shit. Of course you won't have any proof or reasoning to offer up like you haven't for years you'll just keep on spouting the same bullshit that doesn't even make sense.

I'm aware it will probably never go away, but it's not going to stop me from dispising it as an argument. It's, at best, intellectually dishonest, which is I suppose the point you're making about whatever works to your advantage.


You may be right. I sometimes get the old guys confused, and why not, I am an confused old guy myself. I think I was thinking of Sammy Baugh and not Otto Graham.

I don't like it as an argument either. It totally disregards the other players on the team not to mention coaching and all the other intangibles. You can take the best QB ever (we will find out who that is in the other thread) and put him on some of those Packers teams of the 70's and 80's and they still were not winning division much less the Super Bowl and guys like Dilfer prove it takes a village.
I respect your right to have your opinion but that doesn't mean I agree with it or respect you for having it.

The percentage function is not defined over the range [0,1], only over the range (0,1].





None of the above. It wouldn't have been a wasted vote. Obama and Romney -- Those were the wasted votes.

That's why I said immeasurably and not infinitely... though maybe you still have me on a technicality?

Rodgers does what it takes to win games. High completion %, High TD%, High yards per attempt and Low INT% win games. But doing that also increases the stats.

Which is he doing. Winning games so the stats go up or increasing stats to win games?

Regardless, playing to win increases stats that coorelate to winning.

If Rodgers was just out to increase his stats, he would be throwing it more than Stafford and Brees.

Rodgers throws it better. Not more.
I want to go out like my Grandpa did. Peacefully in his sleep.

Not screaming in terror like his passengers.
