Agree or disagree.....that's fine. But it comes down to one basic notion on this MB. If you dare to suggest that our QB is not an all time great, there are a group of posters here that will call you every name in the book. They will attack like a wild mob.
I tend to call that **** out. Yes I am a major pain because I don't let it slide. My life here would be a lot easier if I did. But I feel strongly about it so there it is.
Lifetime member of the "specific element" and proud of it.
In this case, I also can't fathom a why Herm would be influenced in any way by a personal opinion.
I was actually thinking about Jaws in general, the worlds biggest homer.
Like I said, I didn't have an issue with Herm's concept OR his wording (it is what he is known for)
And your last paragraph should be your signature.
Personally, I have issues letting poor "Anti-Eli/Elite" posts slide by unchallenged. Argue it well, I have no issue; make a ridiculous point and I feel compelled to act. You rarely if ever make that ridiculous point.
Right now, I am having trouble not responding to Buddy (who I agree with) but he's killing me with his arguments!!
And before you start, the issue will be that it is likely that at least one of them will have numbers that match Eli is almost any category you select.
They are not elite because you can point to a stat or a stat line.
"I think Tiki really showed great leadership last season by calling out the coaches and making public statements about retiring when we were worrying about trying to make playoffs" and "It's nice to see Tiki making such a smooth transition in to his new career" were both classic Eli responses when asked about Tiki's comments. I highly doubt that Eli is even ever asked about Herm's comments because Herm just isn't important enough.
