    I honestly think Cutler is more inconsistent than Eli. Just my opinion.
    I don't even think it's inconsistency. He's a gambler. He makes awful decisions with no pressure and it only get's worse if somebody's in his face, which is all the time behind that crappy line.
    Because of all of the effort and examination being poured into these predictions, the draft is a robust market that, in the aggregate, does a good job of sorting prospects from top to bottom.1 Yet despite so many people trying to “beat the market,” no single actor can do it consistently. Abnormal returns are likely due to luck, not skill. But that hasn’t stopped NFL executives from behaving with the confidence of traders.

      What Colts QB had a crappy team? Must be Johnny U, because Peyton had the world in Indianapolis.

          I'll be only happy to refresh your memory. They surrounded him with some of the best talent ever put on one offense. Marvin Harrison, Reggie Wayne, Dallas Clark, Edgerrin James, stacked Oline. Name a better receiving core in the past 10 years. Name 10 RBs better than the edge in his prime, before the ACL.

            That was a toxic situation in SD.

              No, they chastise Eli for deciding he was bigger than the draft, in essence bigger than the league.

                you're stretching there a bit my friend....
                Colts teams were usually solid and not just because of Peyton. Taking nothing away from him at all since he is one of the best.

                  it had all to do with SD's FO and owner.....The Mannings were right.....just ask Rivers.
                  Playing in the NFL is a privilage.....why would yuo want to work all that time up to the pros to go to a team that has bigtime organization issues. If you can make your choice better....then why not. Seems the league allowed it....

                    Have to agree here. My theory has always been that wonky throwing motion of his requires a lot torque from his lower half. Since his knee injury in their last playoff year he hasn't been the same and worse year by year.

                      So do I, but I still don't feel the need to stay on the board all day. As long as there are casinos on the beach and fish in the water, I'm good.

                          I don't doubt the SD owners are difficult. Not just the Mannings and Rivers, but VJ and LT agree as well. I just feel like you shouldn't be able to use family legacy or draft position to circumvent the system. If Eli had 5th round talent they would have told him to kick rocks. It just came off as a spoiled kid operating above the law. I didn't like it, but that's just me. I guess if you have the leverage then you might as well use it.

                            I couldn't agree more.
                            I like Eli as a man. but that was not his best moment.
                            He wasn't as bad as Elway though with the Colts. He was downright nasty there.

                            • The reason I don't see it as spoiled is because he is doing what's best for his career. Perhaps Eli could have gone about it in a different way.
