    How does a topic about Scott Pioli turn into a 20 page Julio thread?
    Actually, I can think of about, oh, 70 reasons how that could happen.
    Think it's safe to say we've entered Swift territory at this point.

    Thank you, young citizen. And remember... Don't do drugs, stay in school and always start your day with a nutritious breakfast.

    Not true. Seattle won that game because, unlike Ryan, Wilson can do this...

    On almost the same number of attempts over that span. Keep in mind that 2011 was Year One of "Explosive." That said, Brady still attempted more passes than Ryan during 2011 and 2012 - which explains why he was sacked more those two years. Wish I still had a PFF subscription so I could pull up total pressures.
    Looks like yours is the narrative that needs replacing. Have fun with that.

    Looks like we have reached the point where you just stop trying and start making up sh*t.
    As an objective realist, I should have known better than to try and debate with an emotional fanboy. Why don't we just agree to disagree on this one? I'll continue to believe in what I believe. You continue to believe in...

    What's even funnier is that his latest rebuttal to my accusation was to do exactly what I accused him of doing - yet again.

    No, he only had a 1,600 yd/12 TD RB - along with a top 10 defense and the most accurate clutch kicker in the game - to ride to a Super Bowl in 2004. Poor guy.
    And since you clowns always love to lump Turner, Roddy, Julio and Gonzo together as if they all played at the same time in peak health for seven full seasons during their respective primes, allow me to do the same for Brady. I believe the narrative goes something like:
    "Over the last few years, Brady has been SURROUNDED by elite weapons: A 1,600 yd/12 TD Pro Bowl RB, a first ballot HoF WR, a five-time Pro Bowl slot receiver, not one, but TWO 900+yd/10+ TD TEs, four Pro Bowl O-linemen, a top 5 defense, the best kicker in the game, the brightest OC in the game and arguably the greatest HC in NFL history. How in the heck did a QB who has been so coddled go nine seasons without winning a Super Bowl?"
    You know, being totally full of sh*t is kind of fun, actually. I think I get now why so many here do it.

    Which Manning receiver went to another team, period?
    A: None. Manning's best weapons have always been retained for him.
    What Brady receiver under the age of 32 went elsewhere and continued to be an impact receiver?
    A: Again, never happened. Although, I hear that Moss fella was OK even before he hooked up with Tom. Five Pro Bowls in your first six seasons is good, right?

    Matt Ryan has faced a higher percentage of pressure plays than Tom Brady every year from 2010 to 2012 per PFF.

    Yeah, I'm gonna go out on a limb and say that not one person in this thread ever claimed that Ryan was a "Top 1" QB. Feel free to prove me wrong.
    I swear, god forbid anybody raise a word against the "transcendent QB" narrative on this forum, lest the Realist Objecticons descend upon us, blustering, "Why... how dare you claim that Matt Ryan is better than Brady and Manning!" Talk about losing grip.
    Fact is, Brady and Manning both needed their fair share of help - whether it was offensive weapons, a running game, defense and/or coaching - to achieve their successes, just as Ryan or any other pocket passer would. Why this fact bunches the panties of certain members here so, I'll never know. Aaron Rodgers is the closest thing there has ever been to a transcendent QB, and even he needed his top 5 defense to bail him out of an awful NFCCG performance to reach and win a Super Bowl.
    Tell you what - somebody find me a Super Bowl winning QB in the salary cap era whose defense gave up 24 or more points in every single postseason game that year - as Matt Ryan's defense has in every single post season game he has ever played in - and maybe I'll start believing in magical transcendent QB superheroes.
    That's a 32 points allowed per game average Ryan has had to work against. H*ll, I'd be surprised if somebody could find a QB that even made it to a Super Bowl with a postseason defense like that, let alone win it.

    Always cracks me up when people list 50 something year-old Tony "10 YPC" Gonzalez as a "weapon." Dude's longest play from scrimmage as a Falcon was like 30 yards.
    Also amusing how Ryan's yards, TDs, YPC and passer rating all went up - while his INTs and sacks went down - the year after Gonzo finally retired. Guess he wasn't quite the "crutch" some here made him out to be.
    Ryan had exactly one season where you could possibly, maybe, say he was "surrounded" by weapons - 2012. And even that's a stretch, as his running game by that point was led by a washed up, bloated sub-4 YPC drunk who would go on to never touch an NFL football on gameday again.
    Before that 2012 season, Julio was just a rookie who spent a good chunk of the season either battling injury or the steep NFL WR learning curve. After it, Both he and Roddy were missing significant time on the IR, with Roddy in particular no longer able to separate when he was on the field, posting a YPC average lower than most starting TEs.
    What tickles me the most, however, is how the folks who throw around this "surrounded by elite weapons" nonsense are the same clowns who are constantly parroting insipid, made-for-ESPN terms and catchphrases like "elite" and "swag" and "got a little dog in 'em," as if they had actual meaning in a real world football discussion. Bless their little hearts, these poor schmucks honestly believe that the verbal diarrhea that spews so freely from their mouths is actual analysis.
    "Derp! To heck with your stats! Tom Brady wins Lombardis simply because he has magic football super powers!"
