    Both Peyton manning and Brett favre take risks, which is what I was getting at. Quarterbacks that are willing to take calculated risks and push the ball down the field is the difference between a good quarterback and a great quarterback. The risky throws turn into interceptions occasionally but it also turns into a lot more touchdowns.. Peyton and Brett are both at the top of the all time list in interceptions, but they are also at the top for touchdowns as well.

    I'm not sure why he wasn't active for week 1.. That was a bit odd to me, especially after he apparently had a pretty good preseason. I guess they have to cut down on certain positions when they want to roll out 5 running backs every Sunday...

    So would you rather have 30 td 18 int or 20 td and 5 int? Because that is a realistic scenario we could be talking about at the end of the season. Wentz is going to throw a lot of int's in part because he is still learning, but also because of his aggressive nature. He will make far more positive plays than negative ones though.

    Those are arbitrary numbers though. 10 more TDs but 13 more INTs? All things even, 30 TDs, 15 INTs to 20 TDs 5 INTs, the QB with 30 TDs is scoring 180 points with giving up at most 90 points with net points of 90, same ratio with the 20 and 5 guy.

    What you CAN guarantee is that the 30 TD guy is getting you 180 points, 60 points more than the 20 TD guy. You can't guarantee those INTs turn into points against on either side.

    Context obviously matters because that 20 TD guy could be throwing a TD per game while the 30 TD guy could be throwing a bunch of 3+ TD games followed by 0s when it counts.

    In the grand scheme of things, I'm PROBABLY taking the 30-15 guy over the 20-5 guy.

    Context is precisely the point. The assumption is that the 30 TD guy scores you more points though in most cases.

    Well, I mean as you said there's context.. How many of those tds came in mop up duty? How many of those interceptions came at the end of the game when taking care of the football is #1 priority? How many passing yards does each player have? Putting a team in the right position to score is the main responsibility for a QB. He doesn't necessarily need to be the one to get them a touchdown. So for the 20/5 guy, he could be a guy that is able to move his team down field then hand it off to his running back for a TD.. It doesn't go down in the stats but that quarterback was crucial in getting that TD.

    As I said, I just love a quarterback that pushes the ball down the field. Wentz does that. Alex Smith on the other hand does not, same with dak prescott, he's a dump and dunk type of quarterback. I'll take the extra turnovers if it means that he's gonna keep pushing the ball down the field which turns into more touchdowns whether he throws the TD or someone else runs it in.

    Mos def, The OF is stacked and we have about 5 good prospects waiting, the pitching kind of sucks but still, we could go the cubs way and buy pitching.

    Who cares if Carson is religious or not? I don't understand why anyone would care about a professional athletes personal life unless it were a detriment to their ability to do their job.

    Side note, Donnel Pumphrey tore his hammy, great. I hate to start this so early in his career but I'm picking up feels that he is a bust.

    I had a level 3 hamstring tear once. That can easily be a recurring injury if he doesn't handle it well and I'm not really a huge believer in the Eagles training staff, so..

    I'd say, depending on severity, he'd probably be out around 8 weeks or so. Probably 3-4 weeks if it's just a level 1 tear

    Waste of a 4th round pick, if not a bust.
