CTL on QB preference: Gunslinger or game manager?
Tue, 30 Oct 2012|
The CTL raises the question: Which do you prefer out of your team's quarterback, a gunslinger or game manager? - 10/30
Alex Smith has been cool all season long he's got the fourth best quarterback rating this season. He's first in completion percentage a look at some of the -- -- 27. Passing yards per game kept in -- -- But what counts is who wins he's got six. Tied for second in the league or do you want a quarterback like Smith whose numbers are going to not win a fantasy league but will win games or. That would another good very very good record that they. But apparently like the music and more crayons later that can win games but also lose some more motivation. Okay. I you know. Jay Cutler I think it was about K this is about gunslinger vs game manager who you want. Situation I don't know I don't know I mean you're the building bonds is -- it depends what you want. You know I -- -- it. Was on the field I really do -- I'd like -- I'd like exciting football but that's to me that's exciting for Obama went to do a good look at it I was a big fan of Trent Dilfer. When he was playing the Ravens but they wanna title wise ring get your way and I don't know I'm just say and I just wasn't -- to me that just wasn't excited to move on the defense and predicted Doug hassle than the ones on the but I think. They can he can be a mix of both. In my opinion this is such a hard classic is and get to judge on the individual over look and we need you if you look at someone like let's say Jeff George the ultimate gunslinger he didn't win a darn thing. But I think you look at a lot of credit our. The other Brett Favre was a -- right I don't know he was necessarily -- the gunslinger -- -- -- also all play with -- -- when he was immensely helped him in Omar Bradley -- -- -- want to think about the guy till I mean it was I I think Brett Favre is one of the elite players in the history and I. And you know he did throw an interception against the Giants that was costly but more overall -- -- he let the dice roll his use he's all right my book. They found a way to win games to me earlier this great run for an offense offense or defense have to have confidence that guy that hey if we just gotta win a game he can do -- but obviously equipment -- what is -- -- -- obviously. From what I understand. They weren't completely sold on Alex -- to -- been entertained -- man no question I mean they then why did they did take a game managers what they wanted to what does Jay Cutler became manager hey are gunslinger. I mean. He's a gunslinger -- I mean I look at his. Statistic right now in the fourth quarter. He's -- 132. Passer rating which leads the league. 66 touchdowns and two interceptions that's not pretty does not too bad for the fourth quarter so if you managed your game right now -- -- park I'll take that. You know rather -- try to be -- he's a hybrid of a gunslinger at a game manager -- To me you possibly win and right now -- the matter who has the best team in the NFC how would you guys write -- that's a tough one because you know from the niners defense does look good but you know the Seahawks dropped five passes against them -- they beat them and I'm not entirely sold on niners offense although I like that the game management. You know I have to look at you know the Giants because it's such an easy if you. I don't think the Falcons -- there I mean it's. I don't know -- owners haven't noticed a lot of relatives and so that's Philly okay a living you know way out and let everybody its first playoff right -- that's what they did go to the playoffs and then maybe -- I don't know what does -- -- -- -- -- -- -- for thirteen three a couple of years and on and off the -- the best team and it's consistently happens with a crowd -- in the meadowlands in your opinion I think they got up polished quarterback now. Mean the guy it's. A lot younger back then he is a polished veteran quarterback a good bet to beat this team right now nobody to you know you're in the -- -- here outdoors -- -- -- -- I -- -- down there I want it seemed throughout the night that convinced -- -- -- -- met. Brian is this done and Tony Gonzales I thought I Julio Jones is a stud and their offensive line is better this -- really got tired I don't that you could put the Bears appeared -- top yet because of the -- a -- if the Bears that they offer to arm maybe third or fourth right now you know through the end -- the AFC and NFC right now who's ahead of them. Are important to the Giants. I always look at it is if you lost to team there -- -- -- they lost to the Packers so he can't put them. Ahead of the Packers right now even -- the Packers are sure to be careful about that if you look at the AFC look at when the teams the Patriots -- lost to. Can Seahawks can -- They feel it looks. Effect of Matt Bryant for a second I think the Bears defense this year again would make Matt Ryan Falcons often always do but I think is pretty much the same team man -- since play defensively like a team like the Bears. For the 49ers are not that I mean -- claiming a deal what the NFC south which is really down this year I think people are getting way too carried away with the Falcons Merling really disagree with that. Think that's a really good football team.
