re: NFL Thread: Week 13 - STEELERS FANS ASSEMBLE
Did you see the Jags game? I'll assume no. Luck led a fourth quarter comeback while also only leaving only a minute left on the game clock. The defense then allowed Gabbert to make one long throw with absolutely horrid coverage and allowed a TD. That wasn't his fault.
It wasn't his fault that the defense made Mark Sanches look good.
These wins, the ones that I've seen and even the ones I haven't, have been because of Luck and his ability to run our offense. These aren't team wins, our defense has not gotten it done, especially when it's had to.
The Skins have also only beaten bad teams, but have also lost against these bad teams. Griffin has kept them close in nearly all their games with his great play, but don't act like the Skins aren't a superior team. You can determine that simply by how they did last year, and last year the Colts were by far a worse team.
And I know the season isn't over yet, but at this point in the season Luck's team has a better record than Griffin's team. Griffin has been better statistically, but Luck has lead his team to more wins. Which would you rather have? Romo always had good stats too(I am absolutely not saying he will turn out like Romo or is anything like Romo) but he is hardly a winner and not really a QB that most teams would want to have.

was. Maybe this is how my book ends. Maybe Father Time has defeated me..
...Then again maybe not!
Stop feeling sorry for yourself, find the silver lining and get to work with the same belief, same drive and same conviction as ever. Thats 'mamba mentality' we don't quit, we don't cower, we don't run. We endure and conquer."
