Wow, watchin “more-than” & “Norm” argue the intricacies of what if in the below River flowing thread
- What if the QB… - What if the W did…
I consider those two of the most intelligent posters around here and would pay good money to hear them both argue Polytheism for a while, but sheeeeh… Who the hell knows.
It reminds me, something that’s bothered me for a while, every time I watch a QB I really like, Brady, Rivers, Rodgers, I wince watching a ball bounce of a jumping lineman, a CB etc. and get intercepted. All interceptions are automatically rated against the QB… is this fair?
Eg. In the Texans game Philip Rivers threw to Danny Woodhead. Texans LB Channing made a great play, jumped the route and intercepted it. – QB interception I agree.
In the Dallas game, PR made a downfield pass, a Dallas lineman jumped up out of nowhere, a line scrum of players, tipped it and it fell into Dallas LB Lee’s hands – QB interception, I don’t agree, I think…
(I am not defending Rivers, complaining about etc. etc. just as examples, relax NY)
If another player touches the ball once it leaves the QB control, should that be the QB’s responsibility?
I understand its difficult. If a WR gets a perfect ball, misses or drops it, it’s still an incompletion against the QB. BUT if a third party touches, deflects, reroutes the ball between QB and Receiver its wholly the QB’s fault?
What do you guys think?
